    Incredible Experience!

    The Oculus Rift is such an incredible experience. You really get the feeling of being right in the action. I was a bit skeptical at first, having only tried the Oculus Gear VR that works with my Samsung phone. But as soon as I got it up and running, that skepticism is blown away pretty quickly. Just remember, if you are coming from my situation, the Gear VR is powered by a phone, while still powerful, is just a phone. The minimum PC specs to run Rift is a lot more than the most current phones. I do have a few points to add: - Make sure you have a good "VR space" around you that is free of objects..a 10x10ft space would be ideal, but at least 6x6ft. - While you can wear glasses with Rift, I found it easier and more comfortable to play without them. If you're really blind without them, you may want to make note of this. - The headset is surprisingly light, I didn't find much fatigue with it after an hour of use. That being said, you may want to take a break every 60-90mins to adjust your eyes. - The headset is very snug obviously to block out outside light. You can adjust it of course, but if you wear glasses, expect your lens to fog up because.. - YOU WILL SWEAT PLAYING THIS!! I can't stress this enough.. But it's a good thing, I'm sure a lot of us buying this could use some exercise, right? Seriously, the first time I played Robo Recall, I was exhausted afterwards! - A lot of people complain about the single wire coming from the headset. I found it very long, and if you have a PC case that can accept HDMI and USB from the front panel, that's an even better option. I never felt like it was in the way, I was aware of it, but never got the sensation I would be tangled up by it. The included games are very enjoyable, I have yet to sample them all, but Robo Recall and Echo Arena are two really great games to try out. Doom and Fallout 4 are coming out soon for VR as well. Only downside is you need a beefy PC to run this, but mine is hardly top of the line: PC Specs: AMD FX-8350 Gigabyte FM3 mobo 16 gb RAM Asus Strix GTX 1070 OC Even the rift and sensors are connected to USB2 ports instead of the recommended USB3. So you can get away with "average" PC performance as long as you have the proper graphics card. (Although I will be updating to a Ryzen or Coffee Lake system very soon!) In short, if you are even curious about VR, it is worth the plunge. Especially at the $399 price point. If you can, try it out in store or at a demo location, but you'll definitely fall in love with it. Very much recommended!

    One of the, if not the, Best VR on the Market

    Posted
    VRGuy

    First off, I have PSVR. I was about to get the Vive because I heard the Vive was better than the Rift overall - my main concern was room scaling (having a bigger space with 360 tracking. The Vive was sold out everywhere so I looked into the Rift and I am glad I did. First, the Rift does not require making holes in your walls to set up the sensors like the Vive does. I will admit, the tracking is probably not as good as the Vive, but it is much much better than PSVR. The Rift uses 2 (you can add more for better tracking if your computer has enough USB 3.0 ports) sensors which you place in front of you and I've used these with little to complain about in 3 areas of my home - 2 smaller and 1 bigger (optimal) area. The controllers this comes with are the best on the market hands down (though Vive is working on a pair to compete but a release date is not available as of today) - they are ergonomic and track hand function much better than the PSVR and allow for a joystick on each hand - so intuitive. Setup is easier than the PSVR (from the physical moving and setting up perspective and because I have a laptop running it, THOUGH the PSVR is more plug and play ready - not having to deal with potential PC/driver issues). GAMES - for the most part all Vive games can be played on the Rift through Steam, but not vice versa. One of the best games in VR comes FREE with the Rift - Robo Recall. It also comes with Dead & Buried - a great solo, co-op, multiplayer game with charm, and a couple of art-based games. Also, Marvel Powers United which comes out later this month will be Oculus exclusive. Oh, and there's a game called Unspoken which I would describe as Dr. Strange meets Fight Club - the game is developed by the studio that is doing the PS exclusive Spiderman. Overall - the PSVR is recommended if you already have a PSVR and money is an issue. It's friendlier in terms of social settings (since my laptop doesn't have a way to display on a larger screen or TV). I'd also only recommend this if you're not super serious into VR gaming. They are committed to making and releasing more games like the much praised Tetris due out later this year. Rift - I love this thing and can't say enough good things about it. I had to buy a new gaming laptop for the Rift (Dell G7). BUT I can take it to visit friends and family and be set up in minutes (the packaging is better than the PSVR to lug your stuff around in). I love the controls and the exclusive games + compatibility with Steam. It looks gorgeous. There's more smaller, indie games for cheaper that are pretty tight quality like Twisted Arrow, Thrill of the Night, Giant Cop. The ONLY thing is that games exclusive to the Rift need to be purchased through the Oculus store and they ask to store your credit card or Paypal which i do not like (and have already removed my card #), but I buy most of my games through Steam. All is good :). Vive - It's $100 more and would only recommend (based on limited knowledge) if you wear glasses - apparently the Vive is more glasses friendly due to the space, but I don't let people with glasses use my Rift or PSVR anyways. AND if room-scale is your #1 priority (although you can do 360 tracking with a rift if you have a 3rd sensor which requires 3 USB slots total - I think they may need to be 3.0 but maybe only the headset HAS to be). Hope this helps!

    A game changer

    Remember the first time you played a video game? Now remember the first time you played a video game with "realistic" graphics, ten years ago? Now look at what we have today and see how far of a leap they have come. This review isn't about graphics, but it's about setting the bar for video games as an experience even higher. No, this thing isn't going to look as photo realistic as triple A games played on your monitor, but when you're in a game there's actual depth. Things are coming at you, but they're ACTUALLY coming at you now, rather than coming closer on your monitor. When you're racing in a car, especially with a wheel and pedal setup, or flying in a ship in space with a joystick, YOU ARE THERE. It is entirely immersive. Ok, let's get the "things to know" out of the way. 1. You need a decent computer to run this. 2. No, the field of vision doesn't fill everything you can see. 3. Yes, there are god rays. (White streaks of light shooting "toward" you, especially evident with white text on black backgrounds.) 4. The graphics aren't as amazing as plenty of AAA games available now, and aren't as high resolution. 5. You need some room, about 10ft x 10ft to play a lot of games, but some are ok just sitting down. 6. The headset does get a bit warm so you're toasty after a long play session. 7. The screen door effect is kinda sorta noticeable, depending on how immersed you are in gameplay. 8. Motion sickness. YMMV on this one. Some people can take a lot of intensity and some can't. 9. It is an incredible game changer. I don't regret my purchase at all. I have had zero issues with the headset. The tracking controllers work phenomenally. Honestly I was real iffy on the purchase because it's not entirely a small chunk of money, but within 30 minutes of putting it on I knew it was a revolution in gaming. I've shared the VR experiences I own with as many people as I can, and they're equally as impressed. I cannot wait for more content to come out. Yes there are a lot of "experiences" which are short, but there are plenty of great real games as well. I could go on for a long, long time about how awesome this thing is, but no matter what I tell you, no matter what you read here, you won't understand until you try it. So find a demo at a Best Buy store if they have one available and give it a shot. Let me know if you can get through the experience without at least thinking "wow!"

    Works Great if you can get it to work.

    So, this product is amazing if you can get it to work, there is a ton of info on reddit about people having USB connection issues. I happened to be one of those people. I got everything set up as explained in the setup process using USB 3.0 ports and the Oculus compatibility check said everything checked out good. Fast forward 30 min and the headset disconnects and shows as a failing device in device manager. The only way I could get the headset to come back was by restarting my computer, but the failed device caused windows to hang while restarting and every time this happens I have to do a hard restart on the computer. So I contact Oculus support and do everything they suggest to no avail, so they suggested that it might be a faulty unit. I decided to return it to best buy instead of deal with shipping since it had only been three days after the purchase date. The new one shows up and while the picture quality was better on the second one for whatever reason, the disconnects continued. Now I have been in the IT field for 10+ years and have A+, Network+, Microsoft and Cisco IT training. So this is not a lack of experience or trying to make something work that should just work out of the box. My computer is a top of the line I7 6700K, 16GB DDR4, GTX 1070 8GB with a Gigabyte motherboard and I have no issues with any other device. In the end of it all I ended up having to install a PCIE USB 3.0 expansion card that receives power from a 4 pin molex connector to have enough power and a dedicated USB 3.0 controller to handle the power and bandwidth requirements for the rift. I just happened to get lucky and the Realtek 4port card I had laying around worked, but there are tons of people on reddit who are using even Oculus recommended cards and still have issues. I offered to do anything support needed to help them diagnose what is causing this issue with my USB controller, but they didn’t seem to want to fix the problem once I had found a work around to the issue. So where yes, where they responded in a timely manner and tried to help, they clearly don’t desire to actually fix a pretty major issue with a $500 piece of hardware. Had this not been 30% off Bringing it down to $350 I would have easily forked out the extra $100 for the HTC and just be done with these kinds of issues. I do feel as though the Rift has some advantages over the Vive but its not worth dealing with these kinds of problems IMO. To be 100% honest if I didn't have those kinds of issues getting it to work correctly then I would have given this product 5 stars, but 3 days troubleshooting and having to install something that is not advertised as being required is a problem.

    Best choice for PC-based VR

    Posted

    If you're interested in experiencing PC games in VR, there are basically two choices: Oculus Rift Touch and HTC Vive. Rift Touch is cheaper than Vive, has glass lenses instead of fresnel lenses (sharper image), includes earphones in the headset, and is easier to set up (sensors can be placed on desktop and only require USB ports), and has far far superior controllers. Rift disadvantages compared to Vive: while you get room scale VR out of the box, when you're facing away from the two sensors, your body can obscure the controllers. For Vive-equivalent room scale, you need to buy a third sensor ($59) and place it behind you facing one of the front sensors. There's no breakout box to connect the headset to, which means the HDMI and USB cable connections coming from the headset have to be connected directly to the back of your PC. The headset and the two sensors require a total of three USB 3.0 ports. If you buy a third sensor, that needs a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, so make sure you have four ports available. Oculus has its own game store, and it has games that are exclusive that are not available on Steam. I'm not interested in being locked into a specific VR platform when things will likely change in the future. As to the quality of the VR experience using Oculus, it is the best you can get for 2017, barring the new Samsung Windows Mixed Reality headset. I've had no trouble with the headset and software, and the tracking works well if you are careful to stay in the play area you have defined. I'm using a Ryzen 5 1600, 16 GB of RAM, and a GTX 1070 and can run all games at max settings so far. Highly recommended!

    -I feel like a kid again! From the first moments, to the current ones, I find myself being deeply invested in this platform. The titles included in this bundle add a great value: Robo Recall and Lucky's Tales, mainly. -I bought a third sensor, and I'm playing in a 5'x8'-ish area. It's nice to have 360-degress of tracking. Be sure to clear your play space or you'll punch things, like I did (ouch!). -There may be a gap around your nose, which lets light in and ruins the immersion for some. After adjusting the side and top straps, I've mostly eliminated this issue. -Glasses can be used, but it's not the most comfortable thing. I have thick-framed glasses, and can only play for so long. I'm literally saving my contact lenses for after work, so that I can play more comfortably. -The cord can get tangled, as with any tethered VR headset. I feel like I got a good 30-40 hours of battery life on each controller (thank goodness for Eneloop!). -There is a slight screen-door effect, but it hasn't bothered me much. Once I'm into the game, I don't notice it. -Oculus is owned by Facebook, and that may bother some people. -Being the only VR experience I could pick up in-person, I went with Oculus. -I've had 50+ hours in VR, in the last 3+ weeks. I'm eager to upgrade to a more powerful GPU, when the time comes. -Overall, I recommend this VR headset to any PC gamer looking for the "next thing". The platform has matured over the years, and the games are getting better and better. It's ready to play, right out of the box (well, after installing the software)!

    Wow

    There have been several times in my life when I purchased or tried a product which blew me away and left me with that “wow” feeling that I never forgot - Playing the first Nintendo (NES) on my Birthday (it was such a huge step forward from what everyone was used to back then); Pushing a CD into a car CD player in the 80’s (sounds stupid but if you're older, you'll understand what I mean); Opening the first Apple iPod and navigating the scroll wheel and then using an iPhone years later. All of those products literally changed things and when you experienced them the very first time, they blew you away and you knew it was something that would change the world (as much as a consumer product can change the world). So our 8 year old has been asking for a VR headset for Christmas. I (sort of) researched them for a few minutes and picked the Rift up on Black Friday. I wanted to make sure one of our PC’s could run it so I opened it, installed it, and used it. Wow. Are you kidding? After 10 minutes I went and grabbed my wife who HATES video games, and computers in general, and I asked her to go put the headset on and pick up the controllers while I distracted the kids. She spent 20 minutes with it, came back, and proceeded to talk me into buying a second one one for the "adults". No kidding. I didn’t care about or want anything VR related before this weekend. Now I’m in the middle of upgrading our PC's just to get a "better" VR experience. Put one on your head. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced and you will never want to use a computer monitor or TV to play a game again. The Oculus is 100% worth the money. At the Black Friday price it's 200% worth the money. If you can afford to throw a decent GPU and CPU in your computer, go for it. I can’t overstate it. This is a "change the world" product.

    Looks awesome... Computer not compatible

    My son asked for this for Christmas last year, but it was still too expensive. The price came down to $399 for Oculus Rift Touch this year, so I figured, what the heck, especially with the software update that's coming out now (Oculus Dash... YouTube it), and the Windows Creator update that just rolled out that's all about 3D and mixed reality... Anyway, I bought my son a $900 HP Envy x360 for Christmas last year, and I assumed that a $900 computer should be able to run Oculus. Not true. You need a discrete graphics card (at least a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, but preferably a GTX 1060... Big difference between the two, get the GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5)... Intel HD anything won't work because integrated graphics cards aren't powerful enough. You also need an HDMI port and at least 3 USB ports. In short, to get that combination you have to have at least a mid-range gaming laptop ($1200 ish). Regular laptops don't offer that combination, even the high end ones. Desktops that meet the specs aren't much cheaper. Furthermore, you can't get a touchscreen that meets those specs for less than $2,300, and if you want a 2 in 1 touchscreen that meets the specs, you mod-as-well forget it. Long story short, I thought I was buying a $400 gaming system, but with the $1300 computer I'm buying to be able to use it, it's actually a $1700 gaming system... Make sure you check your computer specs before you buys this, and be prepared to give up touchscreen and 2 in 1 for Oculus... That said, Oculus Dash looks awesome, and I can't wait to try it out, when the new computer arrives.
