I bought three of those for about $12 each: https://goo.gl/HYrQ67
Then I daisy-chained them together, made some guides with cable binders and mounted the thing close to the ceiling, so the cables would not be a trip hazard. The cable is long eno…
At the end of the day he's entitled to his own views, he's also entitled to spend his money how he likes. Get a grip people.
Well, so am I.
And I will not spend my money on a bloody Trump supporter.
It's like supporti…
Read the post and a couple pages from the replies. Not sure if he answered a couple questions concerning his issues with the Rift so far.
1. Do you wear glasses? Have you updated your prescription recently? I do use glasses…
@Aroddo - To be fair you have given use your first impression, but you know nothing about how VR works. That's the reason why you had such high expectations is all I can say. Just contact Oculus for a refund if you're not happy.
@tranceology3 I didn't originially compare it to anything! I gave a verbatim description of my first impression.
But if you want to know what I expected: A close up look at a modern smartphone screen. Because - surprise - those are effectively handh…
My day one impressions of the Rift were similar to Aroddo's, though not quite as flabbergasted. I was expecting it to be pretty pitiful compared to my primary display, and it delivered, though it was really the comfort/fit tha…
@Aroddo The reason you're being called a troll is not because you spoke badly about the Rift but because you did so in a very harsh tone and even went so far as to tell people to cancel their preorders.
People don't like being tol…
This, as the OP is aiming at, is a perfectly true and honest approach !
Good on you, Aroddo !
If the OP was being perfectly true and honest, he wouldn't have needed to Photoshop one of my own images …
I voiced a very legitimate deficit in a 700€ product. Your fanboyism does only make you a corporate tool, and it is thanks to you people that corporations might not feel enou…
This post is a first time user impression, after all. It was written under shock.
I'll give it a try when back from work and maybe order some contacts instead of glasses.
Maybe some enjoyment can be found despite the abysmal gr…
how can i find out if my Rift was manufactured with sub par components?
anyway, will try again this evening with some other demos. first impression was quite a let-down.
Thing is, you find out about the screen door effect w…
If it really looks like that in your Rift then there's something seriously defective with either the VR device itself or your PC. Although I'm pretty sure at this point you're just having fun saying stuff on a forum; not really sh…
I played on a C64, and I still remember the early PC days with CGA and EGA graphics.
On the other hand, I had a VR hmd on my head 20 years ago, and even though the graphics were rather primitive, the basic features were the same. It also probably c…
Oh yeah, that's another thing where the Rift sucks: If you wear glasses in the Rift, they immediately fog over.
I don't need my eyes examined again, but you clearly need a surgeon to remove your head from out of your arse.
I read reviews, saw some videos, read more reviews about how amazing the immersion is and NOTHING prepared me on how bad the display is in reality.
The ONLY thing one could find was that the Rift was slightly better than the Vive, and that doesn't r…
unless higher system specs increase the quality for still images, I doubt my system specs matter. I too have a 970. was considering a 1070 or 1080 for the rift, but now it looks like it's not worth the bother.
No, the videos don't really prepare for what you actually see, because what you see in the video on the screen nearly fills your entire view.
the video at 2:00 comes pretty close to how the 'Within' videos look to me. See the par…
I have tried exactly 2 apps: "Within", the VR video player and the demos that kinda started by themselves. A T-Rex demo and some alien. I have no issue with the 3D effect - it doesn pretty much work as advertised.
I perceive the resoluti…
