    It's easy to use and set up, controller works well. I like that I don't have to take my phone out of the case to use this like on my Samsung Gear VR headset

    I have another brand I used prior to getting this that I paid much more for and I was very pleased to see at a lesser cost this had the same quality and was easy to set up and use.

    It's okay for simple things. A lot of the apps have to be purchased.

    Very easy to use. Remote is simple. I can use it on my network with Plex and SkyBox. Courtside with some NBA games with NextVR. Nice. With my Pixel 3, I can take VR photos.

    Fantastic Option For Cheap VR

    This is a great daydream view headset, but quite pricy at full price. Get it on sale and you'll have a headset that can be worn comfortably for periods of time. The field of view is great, but the real highlight is the remote, it's nice to hold, easy to use, and the buttons are perfect for use without looking.

    I enjoy it especially for the price. It's fun and the Google layout is simple and intuitive. Including the remote is a must and makes a huge difference in emerson to the content.

    Takes you to another world. Extremely comfortable, easy to use and setup. Only complaint is that my phone, the first Google Pixel XL gets hot after about a half hour of use.

    i never thought that VR would be so immersive. Watching movies or diving into the 3d content has been so crazy! in a good way that is. You totally get lost in what you are watching. High five to google for absolute comfort and ease of use.

    This VR goggle set is really nice. It's more comfortable than my previous Samsung Gear VR and keeps out more light as well. The controller is basic, but intuitive. It allows you to realign your view just by holding a button for 2 seconds or dragging your viewing area. It's also nice that I can use my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and my wife's Iphone 7 Plus with the same device. For an inexpensive VR kit, this is very functional and fun.

    The Technology Is Great, Not Enough Content Yet

    So I bought this when it was half price on a daily sale... I wouldn't yet pay full price for it yet. The technology is quite amazing, sadly there isn't enough content yet out there. Google does offer some free 3D documentaries in its play store though the Daydream app when you get your Daydream View connected to the phone which are quite amazing. YouTube VR also is a must have application which has quite the selection of both 360 and VR video. Some amazing content out there from National Geographic and other production quality content, as well as the hobbyists and amateurs. As far as the Daydream View itself, its rather comfortable to wear for long periods once you get it properly adjusted. The controller is easy to use once you get used to it. I wouldn't recommend paying full price at this point due to the limited content, but once the content catches up with the technology this will be amazing.

    Great mobile VR system with only one problem...

    This was the third mobile VR system I've purchased. The first was a simple cardboard viewer that I got just to see how it works. The second was a slightly better cheap plastic unit which was built so badly that I returned it and purchased this. Having seen this range of options, I've to say that the higher end Daydream headset really is the only one that I'd recommend for someone who actually wants to make extensive use of mobile based VR. The optics, weight, and overall comfort are so much better than the cheaper options that it's hard to see how you'd make do with anything less, and the included controller is pretty much a must-have if you want to get anything close to what you can get with a Vive or Rift. And unlike many other higher end offerings, the design of the Daydream View is such that it can accommodate a wide arrange of different phones without needing any awkward adapters, frames, or calibration sheets. Unfortunately, there is a caveat. Namely, this excellent headset that's been built for versatility can only support about half a dozen different handsets at the moment. While you can use it as a cardboard viewer without much difficulty, all of the most impressive features of the View such as the automatic adjustment, controller support, and app library will only work if you have a daydream enabled phone. So if you do have one of those, this really should be the first and probably only one you look at. Otherwise, you'll need to look elsewhere for something based around the Cardboard ecosystem instead.

    An affordable intro to VR

    The Daydream View is a great way to get your feet wet in VR. It offers great quality and comfort while still being quite affordable. Not all phones are compatible so research first before buying. I use it with the ZTE Axon 7 phone and it works great. I have not tried other VR units to compare with this so my experience is limited. My main use for this is watching Netflix or digital copies of movies. There are good games available also and those are very immersive. I have not felt any motion sickness but after prolonged use I do experience a small amount of eye strain. The included controller is very easy to use and a must for controlling what you see and interacting with content. The controller has very convenient volume controls which is very helpful, as well. The headset is very comfortable. The top strap is removable but I found it is much more comfortable with it on. This 2017 model has a heat sink for your phone which I feel is a must. After prolonged use your phone will get quite hot. The only negative I have experienced is occasionally I notice the view will slowly drift off to one side. I don't know if this is unique to this product or inherent to all VR at this point. Conveniently the controller has a way to recenter the screen if this ever happens. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a Daydream compatible phone.
