    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 would not 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.

    I was looking for a way to watch various video streaming services without interrupting those around me. Since I've purchased the item, there have been many improvements to the services I use most often, and the updates that allow for use of the devices as a private media player option that allows for use while laying down on a couch or in bed without the VR features that would inhibit this type of use.

    Sooo Close! Almost an excellent design.

    The only reason I can't give this thing 5 stars is because it does not fit me correctly. Yeah, I have a big head, but any product with an adjustable strap should be able to accommodate. The finish is great, it works as expected and I love it but it's just too tight even at its biggest setting. The apps work well and the Moto Z2 even fits inside the case with an extended battery pack although I don't think it's advised to use that way.

    Less expensive and much more comfortable than GearVR, also compatible with a lot more phones, in 2019 VR interest has dropped a bit, but if you want the best smartphone powered, mobile VR experience Daydream gives you value, comfort and a large library of titles. You can also run all Cardboard titles on Daydream giving it the overall largest library.

    always been a huge fan of VR but never had the chance to own something decent and compare this to cardboard this definitely takes the cake for the sale price that it was being offered but at regular price i'd recommend staying with the cardboard style unless you are serious about VR and want to take the next step before Occulus (or other VR style brand)

    I am use to the Samsung Gear VR and PSVR and LG's take on a REALLY BAD VR so I came into this with not expecting a whole lot. Yea the list isn't super huge and not as exciting as others but it's growing that's for sure. I hate that there is no native web browser on it tho. There's one through a side app and it's terrible. The games are fun and enjoyable. It's also comfy to wear and it's pretty clear.

    I'm not huge on VR. There are aspects of this product that make you think, "that's it?" However, for the price, I think it's a really fun add on. The build quality is really good. Kids love it. It has a little bit of novelty factor. If you aren't comparing this to VR setups that are hundres or thousands of dollars, then it's a fun time.

    I bought this for deep discount and I bought the cardboard. The device keeps light out that the Google cardboard can't. Buy this for any sort of long term use otherwise not worth the MSRP. Only works with specific phones. Be sure you have one of those in the list.

    Nice Accessory for your Google Daydream Phone

    The Daydream View is a nice addition to your Android phone quiver if it is Daydream compatible. Quality is top-notch with great design and fit befitting of Google. Perfect accessory if you are curious or want to explore VR without having to commit a much larger budget on higher-end devices. Be interesting to see how the Daydream ecosystem develops out!

    Great VR headset

    I bought the 2017 Google daydream view headset. This headset works well with my Samsung s7. This has a great FOV is 101. I have tried other headsets with a smaller FOV and the difference is very noticeable. The best part of this headset when compared to Samsung gear vr is how light this feels.

    I bought this to be part of that 'VR' future we keep hearing about. Well, while this is rather neat and works well with my phone (Pixel 2) I am not sure the use case for it. Besides being 'neat' and watching a few VR Youtubes, it really isn't as useful as I thought. May have to break down and get some games for it.

    I picked this up on sale and it has been great. An Oculus it is not and results will vary depending on your phone. Most of the games are simple point and click but fun. Head tracking works well. $99 is probably too expensive for this but at the sale price on Cyber Monday it was well worth the price.

    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.

    The Daydream works great however i notices that re centering the view with gen 1 daydream was more accurate. additionally i seem to get alot of errors and timeouts using this set. something i never experiences with the first set. it could be the Pixel vs Pixel 2 but i cant tell

    I'm not a gamer and such so haven't ready tried any games on it however it's a decent VR set for videos and other 360/VR experience. Giving 4 stars as I would expect the video quality a bit better than this.

    Hands free tv streaming in bed

    Honestly I got this so I wouldn't have to get t Rex arms while I watched stuff in bed. It works well for this, although now I get mask marks on my face. New users should be aware that the resolution won't be anything close to 4k, but it's like watching on a huge screen.

    Good product for VR introduction. I bought mainly for video consumption and some immersive games. I wouldn't recommend if you just want to watch videos in VR and you are expecting high quality videos. It's not able to play in hd.

    It works well as VR viewer, but doesn't have a windows to uses as AR viewer. Also it doesn't works with a iPod touch, bc it is so small that the images for each eye are overlapped so bad. I use with a S4 & work well. on the playstore you can't dwnld daydream app.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the video quality. The only minor issue is it is a bit tricky to get the headset on just right so the focus is as good as can be. Has a tendancy to slip a bit, but overall am very happy with the quality and VR apps that I've used.

    Good entry level VR headset

    Get this set first to see if VR is something you can really get into. If you really like VR, then you can invest in more advanced headsets costing a whole lot more. For $100 or sometimes less, this is a very good entry level VR headset.
