Now, on to the review!
This thing is AMAZING! I have never gotten such a workout in my life. I am a computer guy. I like to play games and research stuff on the internet. This has unfortunately led to an unhealthy lifestyle and I needed to shed a few pounds. I wanted to get a VR system anyway so I thought may be this would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone.
And it is.
This thing tricks you. You think you're just having fun playing games, but no. It is a full body workout and I love it! I have never been able to find something that was fun and exercise at the same time, but now I have it. I have an approximately 3m x 1.5m room-scale setup. While this works without a hitch most of the time, I would definitely recommend a 3m x 2m space if at all possible. I play Audioshield, Holopoint, The Golf Club VR, Superhot VR, Sword Master VR and Raw Data for exercise and activity. Of these, Holopoint and Audioshield are definitely the most intensive... but they are also a blast to play. I would definitely recommend this headset to anyone who has a powerful enough PC and can afford it, and would also like to get a nice workout in their own home.
Now, a few other things;
-The screen door effect is pretty bad unfortunately. However, as my HMD did die after 3 days, this may have just been a faulty or defective item. I will have to wait and see.
-I wear glasses. I did not have problem with making the headset feel comfortable at all. Very spacious if you wear glasses.
-My hand tracking seemed to be a bit wacky sometimes. However, I am gonna go out on a limb and blame myself for this one and say it was my fault for bad sensor placement.
- I have an i7 5930k and a GTX 1080 TI. I never had any problems with framerates or whatnot.
Everybody I let try my headset have been amazed. Videos are not able to do it justice.
I was playing a game called smash party recently and accidentally smashed one of the controllers full force into my wall, I dented the wall but the controller still works fine!
Although I am fourteen years of age this might still be a problem for others.
The quality of this device excites me for next-generation versions.
Because the lighthouses need to be in opposite corners of each other, I would advise buying an regular power extension cable if your wall outlets are not optimally placed.
Unfortunately my headset arrived with a defect (a large vertical green line on the right eye of the headset). I'm not deducting any stars because they customer service was very helpful, and a replacement for the headset is already on the way. Looking forward to it!
Other than the defective unit, the experience is amazing! For the first experience I felt sick to the stomach, and I loved it. Depending on the game it gives a genuine feeling like you are the character. If a game can make my stomach turn, it's doing a good job giving an experience you can't forget. The first couple of days using the Vive gave was uncomfortable, but after a week or two everything was smooth and perfect for my liking. It took a while to find the perfect fit and setup through the nobs for customization for eye sizes and distance.
Overall, worth the buy, but really disappointing on the defective unit I got. I hope I don't need to send more components.
Overall this product is amazing and I highly recommend it for those wanting the best possible VR experience. For those looking to get into VR without the hassle or the expensive PC build, I would highly recommend the PSVR.
You see my brother showcase it on twitch.tv/g0nard
The Next thing I am attempting to do with the HTC Vive is to use it to showcase New Home Designs to my clients. It's hard to show someone on a screen a massive 3000sqft+ home but I am hoping with the VIVE that one day I will be able to get my client to come in put on the headset and see my design in VR to give them a feel of the size, depth and beauty of the custom built home before we even start building.
Setup was pretty straightforward. I know that it’s obvious, but do make sure that your PC is good enough for this product and that you have enough space on the walls (or for tripods) for your sensors before you impulse buy. Even if you know for sure, it never hurts to check to avoid problems as it is an expensive investment.
I’m so happy with this!!!
It’s been amazing to play and once you get it set up and figured out its a breeze to set it up again. If you get the VR I recommend you get BeatSaber! It’s an absolute must and the main game I play! It’s the best workout I’ve ever had, you can have literal beads of sweat drip down your face and body and not even notice because it’s so fun!
The Vive is also a lot more resilient (it’s essentially the Nokia of VR headsets, if you drop the controller it will be fine, versus if you drop an Oculus which will probably fly apart). Lastly the controller and headset is a bit heavier compared to Oculus but personally I don’t mind I only wish there was an alternative to the foam padding around the eyes because once I start really sweating it does get itchy and uncomfortable.
