Most affordable headset to play Half-life: Alyx! So far my experience has been great. There is a minor issue that plugging it into a desktop PC you cannot use the link cable to play while charging the headset. This is a limitation of the desktop motherboards rather than the device. Get a powered usb hub to charge your oculus quest 2 while playing!
Due to all the extremely positive tests and reviews on YouTube, I ordered my very first VR glasses.
The operation is extremely good, especially Air Link via WLAN, no latency, everything responds directly.
Now for the big problem, the IPD (interpupillary distance). I see everything blurry, why? Because the maximum IPD is 68mm. So I measured my IPD, it is almost 74mm. I did not know that you have to pay attention to this, you assume that the developers have thought about it and calculated everything, especially such a banality. Only 5-6 milimeters more!
Why do you do that ? I found on Reddit and other forums, very many users who have the same problem.
What were the developers thinking, please ?
Measure your interpupillary distance beforehand, if it is greater than 68mm, the VR is completely unusable for you.
I hope with the Quest 3, the problem will be fixed.
Now I have to send the VR expensive back from Germany.
After reading so many FB comments *I barely go on FB* I convinced myself I would never be able to figure out how to get it to work when it arrives. Doom, Gloom and a lot of Zoom - if I couldn't figure this out by myself I was out a lot of money! By the way, has anyone else notice the huge price comarison of the Quest? Anywhere from $299 - $699 for the same Oculus Quest 2? Anyway, jus sayin...
Today - It finally arrived and boy was I terrified opening the box. I stared, should I send it back - can I do this... well, a long time later I did it, I tore the plastic and out came my Oculus Quest 2 with two cool controllers.
Within 15 minutes I was hooked up to WiFi, FB and playing tennis. I got tired and did meditation for 10 minutes just floating in space. The realty is - its plain awesome! It looked so real that I found myself suddenly afraid of heights! Then it was time to charge the quest - which took around 2 hours.
Yes, it was that easy!!! I love it! So, lesson to everyone - if I can do it all by MYSELF you can too - because you are awesome! Especially if you reading my review. Thanks!
A quick note: You have the option to move the eye piece to make you vision clearer. The eye piece does not rotate. You must take your thumbs and slide right or left.
El visor es muy bueno para lo que cuesta. El precio real debería rondar entre 6000-6200 pesos. Sin embargo, para ser un precio mexicano se me hace entendible por la tarifa de importación. Ahora sí viene lo bueno: La experiencia. Es un visor de realidad virtual que demuestra calidad desde el unboxing, tal vez lo único criticable desde mi perspectiva sería la banda de la cabeza, pero se entiende totalmente porque oculus vende la correa elite por separado. La banda de cabeza no es incómoda, simplemente no va de acuerdo a la calidad percibida del producto en general, simplemente si puedes comprar la elite o una genérica, entonces sería lo mejor que puedes hacer. La experiencia de juegos es simplemente irreal, sumamente inmersivo y si le sumas el hecho de que puedes vincularla directamente a tu pc entonces se vuelve un game changer (si tienes una computadora que pueda correr los juegos). No considero necesario usarlo con un PCVR, pero se agradece demasiado poder hacerlo con un router casero con apenas 3-8 ms de latencia desde una habitación diferente conectado a la red de 2.5ghz. Si quieres desconectarte un par de horas del mundo (porque eso es lo que en promedio dura su batería) y pasar un buen rato, esta es la opción a tomar. Respecto a la batería, aunque pueda parecer algo escasa, es suficiente si tomamos en cuenta la necesidad de descansar los ojos, de todos modos si requieres más tiempo puedes conectarte directamente al pc adquiriendo cualquier cable usb 3.2 a usb c o a un powerbank de diversas capacidades para alargar tus sesiones de VR. Si esperas una calidad visual cercana a la que tenemos en el mundo real, entonces te recomiendo que inviertas en visores del doble o triple de precio, pero por este precio considero competente la percepción de los objetos renderizados por el visor por sí mismo y vía PC es sobresaliente, pero con puntos a destacar como lo son el texto que por lo que entiendo en casi cualquier visor de uso no profesional suelen notarse algo borrososos en algunos ángulos de visión, pero es cuestión de explorar y encontrar los puntos de enfoque de la visión para poder leer sin mayor esfuerzo texto en esta plataforma. Satisfecho 100% con esta compra. Edit: Desafortunadamente a la semana y media de uso murieron un par de pixeles justo en el centro, por lo que opté por devolverlo para posteriormente pedir otro que no tenga este defecto, así que por esto cambio mi calificación de 5 a 4 estrellas.
Purchased this 1 month back and so far its awesome experience
Price : - This is still little overpriced in India. Original US price is 299$ which is around 21K INR. It falls in games / console category and if you count 20% Customs and 18% GST cost goes around 29K. Adding international and local shipping charges + seller margin it should not be more then 32K. If you are getting it around it grab the deal upfront, otherwise wait for some time before buying this.
Model: - This is latest version 2 batch from Quest 2 series with some upgrades. 128 GB storage size is far enough to download and play multiple games from headset without any need of PC or mobile. - You might need to spend extra 5K to buy additional sweat proof cover and head strap for more comfort. With its default elite head strap there is still little extra weight you will feel clearly. Other replacement head straps clearly solved issue providing more weight balance and comfort. - Resolution is pretty clear. If you have eye glasses, do install protection which comes with headset and you are good to go. - You need to practice adjust the position of headset well or you will see things bluer. - New AirLink feature in this saves lots of efforts and money to buy extra high speed USB-C cables ( around 5K inr) to connect headset with other devices. Wireless part really rocks compare to other brand headsets. - You need active and Valid Facebook ID to make this headset work. This is only minus point I will state. - Quest 2 now comes with 3 level of adjustments to adjust its lenses against distance between your both eyes. For large face size 3rd level is far enough. Level 1 is good enough for small faces, while 3 is best for adult large size faces. With proper adjustments via this setting IPD (interpupillary distance) issue no longer exists. -Compare 2 Quest 1 in Quest 2 Fresnel lens has lots of improvements and if you adjust position of headset properly there is zero blurry effects. Just make sure you have correct level of adjustment of IPD and position and its crystal clear to see anything. - For cleaning of lenses when needed check youtube videos. You can mostly use any regular spectacles/sun glass cleaning cloth from inside out. This helps for clear vision and better experience. - Lense are sensitive to sunlight. Dont use Quest 2 outdoor or store it in a way that sunlight reaches lenses. If that happens then rip your quest 2
Gaming and overall Experience: - There are enough free games , apps, movie experiences in its default store to keep you going for few months without need for any purchase. - If you have good PC with GPU card in it, then you are in heaven to play anything from outside in this headset. - Try searching for SideQuest and SteamVR installation tutorial with Quest 2 on youtube and you will have hundreds of games and other apps free or at very cheap discounted rates ( often less then 400 rs. ) - For more free games in first few months keep searching Demo or Free words in store and every week you will get some new game demo. This is good enough to keep you going for 4-5 months this way and decide your taste of favourite game type for actual purchase. - Avoid any pirated games etc they have sharp system in place to ban such devices upfront. Your device wont even boot if their system detects such thing. - Sweating issue. Even with new cover in Indian Weather it still sweats heavily. Its better to remove that sweat proof cover and let its sponge cover soak sweat. It dries up easily during charging time. Have room fan on fast mode or just use AC room to make it more better experience.
Performance: - Directly within headset recently launched Star Wars game are pretty cool. Felt you are part of it. - From PC ( with GPU ) Played Half Life Alyx in it and it was smooth experience. No lag or any pixels. - Also using it for office meetings and some group meets via few VR Room apps. Really fun and enjoyable experience. - VR movies is whole new experience. You can download some VR Player and watch any movie from your PC ( without GPU) via AirLink and it will feel you are in actual physical IMAX or Multiplex cinema hall. - Battery lasts base on usage. From 1.5 hrs to 3.5 hrs. Direct In-Headset heavy games dries battery faster just like your mobile phone. If plugged directly in regular wall socket for charging, takes around 1 hr to recharge fully. Via PC - USB base charging can take longer - Was able to watch latest Justice League movie ( 2021 ) almost 4 hr long in one single charge.
I have wanted one of these bad boys for a while. Finally they're back in stock, so I bought one. So far I like it and can tell I'll be using it a lot for games and... Other things.
It came in simple minimalist corporate packaging like everything does these days, mostly paper (Yay Earth). It came undamaged, but I'm guessing whoever tested it slammed into a wall with wet paint because there's a blue scratch on one of the corners.
Pros: Relatively Affordable Great Tracking Can go Mobile if you want
Cons: -Headstrap Sucks -3 Lens Settings, Couldn't get it quite right -Facebook now has a live 3D view of my disgusting room.
It's pretty much good enough if you're like me and just want access to VR. I will update after further testing if anything important happens.
Primeramente, el visor es de lo mejor qué hay en el mercado CONSIDERANDO el precio; un valve index es MUY caro, pero tiene adiciones qué el Quest 2 no y viceversa; eso es lo que lo hace un gran visor a comparación de los de tope de gama.
Si tienes planeado usarlo para jugar en tu computadora:
1) Necesitas una GPU y CPU capaces de correr realidad virtual.
2) Requieres de un cable adicional cómo el Oculus Link, SIN EMBARGO, existen cables genéricos cómo alternativas, que son mejores, y más largos.
2.1) Si vas a comprar un cable genérico, asegurate de qué sea: USB-C 3.1 a USB-C 3.1 ó USB-A 3.1 a USB C; estos cables rondan entre los 490-780 pesos mexicanos por el simple hecho de ser 3.1, ES OBLIGATORIO que sean 3.1 y no 2.0, porque de lo contrario vas a gastar de más al darte cuenta que vas a tener un rendimiento pobre, no gastes 200 o 300 mxn para después gastar otros 500 mxn.
3) Una nueva correa o headstrap; sí, las reseñas eran ciertas; el headstrap o correa que viene por defecto es un dolor de cabeza (literalmente) es un mal diseño ya que no distribuye de forma homogénea el peso del viso sobre tu cabeza y por ende se vuelve incómodo a la larga.
Yo compre el BOBOVR M2 y es una maravilla, tomando casi el diseño del Rift s, el soporte que te da en el occipital y la facilidad de ajustarlo lo hacen un aditamento indispensable.
Y eso es todo lo que yo considero necesario para poder disfrutar el visor al máximo.
Awesome experience with the new updated 128 gb version, i am still trying out new games but until now it has been a very good experience. Both my daughters 6 and 3 year old are enjoying it as well.
First things first, you do not need a PC to use this VR headset, however if your an advanced gamer then you probably have a gaming pc that might work with PCVR games, others please check the minimum requirement before you buy a PC for PCVR gaming.
Again note with this Quest 2 you do not need a PC it works standalone and you only need a good internet connection, you can buy or get free games from Oculus store or Sidequest, tons of video on youtube on how to use sidequest so check it out. Also you can install youtube and Netflix and use it to watch 360 videos and 3d movies.
Some complain of blurriness, so note you have to adjust the straps so that you are looking straight into it, everything in your periphery will be blur so adjust everytime you wear it, it should be sticking to your face tightly.
If you have glasses then they need to be small as my computer glasses did not fit but i think you will have some problems when using it with glasses.
Finally it absolutely fun to play with these, if you get it under 40 k for 128 GB then its a good deal in India , i tried shipping it out from US to India but the order was not completed as they do not ship things with battery so anyways buy it from here in India and it will be delivered the next day.
