Title: VR Headset
Post by: 4D on Saturday, October 31, 2020, 20:45:22
Been thinking about picking one of these up, keen on the Oculus Quest 2. Does anyone own one or something similar? Happy to receive advice on these  :)

OQ is the facebook one. You have to have a facebook account to use it. I would probably go for a different brand.

I have the quest 2 and it's phenomenal. I use it with the virtual desktop app so I can play vr games wirelessly from my PC and it's superb.

Yep sold my vive and bought a quest. Can play all steam games via virtual desktop and wirelessly.

Hmmm, I  don't like the idea of having to open a Facebook account to use something I've purchased. Will keep an open mind on getting something. Had a look at the Samsung Odyssey plus but can't find anyone retailing them in the UK  ???

Do you have a particular use in mind? That might influence any decision.

I'm thinking of getting one. particularly with the exercise/fitness games in mind. I have an exercise bike but it bores me to tears - I want something fun.

I can't use them but am very interested, I get awful travel sickness and even 5 mins with one makes me queezy.

I think I'm getting one next week, the oculus quest 2 looks the best shout.

Question: 32gb or 64gb? Is that storage capacity, in term of how many games can be stored? Is it worth paying the extra?
I've read the batteries last about 2 hours, but how long does it take to recharge them?

Any other things I should be looking out for?
