Previously, the only experience i had with vr was the samsung gear vr. It was kind of cool, but i didnt like that i had to take my cell phone out of its case and stick it inside the gear. Because of this, i never really gave vr much of a chance. Recently ordered a rift s and learning to use it as well as learning its pros and cons.
I considered the quest, but was a bit turned off by the fact that it had an onboard "cell phone" processor, with downgraded graphics, had limited storage space, and was limited to quest games only.It was also around 200 bucks more than the rift s. I read about the link to connect to your pc to play regular oculous games, but it still didnt sound like the right choice for me. Considered the valve index, but i really dont like the light house idea, and it may be the best vr kit out, but its way too expensive for my taste. My video card just squeaked by with my gtx970, after i upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10. My first oculous game purchase(so far) is boneworks and i am working my way through training in it now. A few observations. Not sure how other vr headsets work with glasses, but this one is a little tight. I am also concerned after reading that some people have scratched the lenses with their glasses. Another drawback that almost makes me wish i had opted for the quest, is the cable connectiing you to the pc. It is fairly long to give you room to move, but i keep tangling my legs in it and having to kick it to the side, spoiling the immersiveness of the system. By the time i finished playing for a couple of hours, the cord was tangled up and was a real pain to untangle. Also seemed that it was kinking a bit in places as i untangled it.
Previously, i had always left my pc turned on 24 7 365. With the rift s connected, i see a white light on all the time and it wont shut off until i shut the whole pc off(which i have started doing). Also, any sound on my pc now routes through the oculous speaker instead of my pc speakers. I have to go into settings and change the default(then change back when i want to use pc speakers) which is a pain. Not sure if there is a setting to auto detect or not, but its a bit of a pain. So far liking the controllers(havent killed batteries yet). Having a bit of trouble clearing enough space in my pc room to play though. System says it meets the minimum required space, but just barely. I try to stay in the middle of my play area, because when i near the sides i see the warning lines pop in and out and it kind of spoils the immersiveness. Not sure i like the fact that steam and oculous games both have a different area to play from and you cant find ALL your games in the oculous virtual library. You need to open steam vr in oculous, then it kicks you into your steam screen where you can see and play the steam games that you have. Would be nice if all the games appeared under on library.
Havent experienced any dizziness when playing for a long time so so far so good on that front.
