Great VR System

Pros: It's fun to play on, and is great for almost anyone.

Cons: It's expensive and the controllers are quite fragile to be $130. I accidentally dropped one on a hardwood floor from about knee height while putting it away and something in it broke and ever since I haven't been able to use it since then, which has been about 10 months now and I had it since mid 2017.

Other Thoughts: they should build the controllers to be able to withstand more abuse than a 1-2 foot drop for $130.

Bad customer support, defective controllers

Pros: Good VR experience

Cons: Controllers have a known issue with the trackpad, with known failures out of the box, and early in the life of the controller.
Customer support is nearly non-existent, and if you've had the device for more then 14 days, expect to have to pay to send it back for repair.
Not reasonable support for a device that is this expensive.
Search youtube for Vive controller repair to get an idea of how bad this problem is, and how bad the customer support is.

Other Thoughts: Is there a way to give zero eggs?

HTC vice is good novel VR device but HTC customer service and corporate policies are very poor

Pros: The device provides decent VR experience, reasonably smooth with i7 6700 and GTX 1070

Cons: relatively heavy with headset connected with cables, which is acceptable for novel device in this field
However, the product is only good as its customer service, unless customer is tech expert, and HTC service options are poor particularly considering high investment made into HTC Vive and computer to run it

Other Thoughts: The device was working OK until link box became non-functional after about 8 months. It took several chats and me going to store to purchase a voltmeter to diagnose the problem which is still OK, but having ability to also talk on the phone should exist for $ 700 device. Then I sent link box for repair (I had to pay shipping) and repair was placed on back order for 2 weeks, without me being told, until I started chat to find out what is going on. It is hard to understand why a manufacturer is unable to repair such small and cheap but essential item like link box for 2 weeks. Another vendor has it in stock for $ 30. HTC refused the replacement.

After that hurricane happened and repair of link box is on hold indefinitely. I completely understand that repair center may be non-functional for prolonged time because of hurricane and I am obviously sorry that HTC is having to deal with the disaster.

However, what I do not understand how we got into this problem at the first place. If they knew that they cannot repair link box, they should have an alternative solution, and not simply wait 2 weeks. I offered to buy from another vendor and send HTC the receipt for reimbursement, they refused that. HTC is hiding behind corporate policies which are not laws. However, if you have non-functional item under warranty, and you have to wait indefinitely for warranty to be honored, such warranty is meaningless.

HTC Vive VR Headset

Pros: Lots of game choices
You can walk around
Doesn’t give you a headache
Has two controllers for each hand(acts as hands).

Cons: Can only walk in a certain area
Have to set up cameras
You need a decent computer for it
Only one person can play at a time
Very expensive.

Other Thoughts: My first time I had an experience with the HTC VIVE headset was at a friend’s house. I noticed that they had cameras set up that they said came with it, although they were tricky to set up. As my friends and I were waiting excitedly to try this practically new invention which had come out in the last year. They chose me to be the first one since I was visually the most excited to try one on, I was pretty anxious to play on this $800 device that they can somehow afford. It helped that they had a little piece of carpet down(which I highly recommend), but now, it was time to play.

They turned on the computer, which looked like a fairly good one, and hooked up the VR to it. I was able to pick the game, although my first choice was updating, I played my second choice and went on. I played the ‘Job Simulator’ game. I slid on the headphones and with a little help adjusting it to the size of my head, the VR headset. I was instantly met with this cartoon world that somehow looked real to me, like it was just how the world looked before I slid the headset on. Nothing was blurry, which can be a problem with other headsets such as the Samsung Gear VR that you use with a phone. The sound quality was also great, although my other friends got caught playing instruments as they waited their turn. Which was kind of annoying since you couldn’t play with another person, online or in real life with you.

The screen wasn’t smudged and I could wear it with my glasses still on, but it did take some adjusting of the headset to get it this way. My favorite part about this VR is that it comes with two controllers that act as your hands in-game. I thought they worked very well, even including buttons so you can grab things, which are easy to learn. They calibrated very well making it almost flawless and smooth as I was grabbing things in-game. As I played for awhile I noticed I wasn’t getting a headache like I usually do from other VRs. I also still felt like I wasn’t in a game even though it wasn’t realistic, which I liked a lot because it meant that I could play a lot longer while still having fun on this headset than I originally thought I could handle.

Overall this is a very good choice on a VR headset and is definitely worth the 800 dollars. I don’t like the fact that on top of that you have to have a decent computer to support the VR itself. You will most likely need a nice one that will support a certain amount of frames per second(FPS) from everything included and needed for this product. I also like how the corners of the screen aren’t blurry like the other VR headsets I have tried in the past, I also found it fits better on my head. It’s understandable that you only have a certain about of space to move in, although I do like how it tells you that you’re close to a wall by meeting a red grid that slowly appears as you get closer. If you have any more questions about this product I will not be able to answer them because the VIVE is not mine, so I don’t know much about it other than what I wrote down here.

Very Cool - Buy it.

Pros: When I was considering buying this I read several reviews that said "Just buy it." I reiterate that sentiment. This technology could potentially change the world as much as the PC, the Internet or the cell phone.

Cons: - That being said, NOT this generation. This stuff is really big and cumbersome and while I am having a blast with mine, I estimate in 3-5 years there will be much improvement in the usability and quality of the graphics. Also there are a few big players such as Oculus Rift. Some games are for one or the other and each has certain strong and weak suits, different controllers, etc. One may dominate, leaving the other(s) out in the cold. Regardless of which one you buy right now, you probably won't want it in a year. It will be cheaper to buy the new one than to try to retrofit improvements to the old, and I expect the improvements to be significant foe the first couple years (wireless, reduce screen door, reduce mass, improve resolution/clarity/off-center)
- Requires stout hardware and I perceive (based on user forums, etc) trying to run on less will lead to disappointment.
- I had a one-week nightmare trying to run on Win7 x64. Win10 basically worked first try. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH WIN7 even if VR compatibility checker says your system will work (mine did).
- Hopefully the leading companies will not screw it up or this could become the domain of doctors and real-estate companies, with regular people back to 2D games. Honestly they do not seem to take this technology seriously. I've never seen such a lack of support for a consumer electronics product. Not only is there LOUSY support from the manufacturer but the user support forums are the weakest I've ever seen. Ordinarily, if you don't get a response from a company rep, there will be some very knowledgeable users who will chime in. Not here.
Addition: I had to make an addition to be fair. There is one guy on the forums who seems to be an employee and he takes care of a lot of people. If you get his attention you're lucky because he is spread pretty thin, but I have seen him help a number of people either with technical information or contact info. So there is *some* support.

Other Thoughts: The graphics are not crystal clear. There is "screendoor" effect. There is the giant contraption strapped to your head, plus headphones. And the umbilical cord you've got to drag around. Kind of hard to lose track of reality with all those strikes against you. YET YOU DO! IT IS STILL ONE OF THE COOLEST TOYS I'VE EVER HAD in spite of the shortcomings!

A lot of the games and software at what they call "early access". This is their name for what (in the software company I used to work for) we would have called pre-beta or some even "proof of concept". Some of this stuff is VERY short and/or VERY rough. On the other hand, a lot of it is free or highly discounted and if they do decide to finish their project you might get some input into the direction they take, so that's kind of cool. The other day there was a free demo of a rollercoaster ride that was absolutely excellent but the whole thing couldn't be more than 60 seconds. On reviewer even said 30. I didn't time it, but the point is, REAL SHORT. Now, had I paid even a couple of bucks for it I would be complaining, but it was free.

Also, do not get me wrong. There seems to be plenty of content out there. Especially for those of us who missed the first year of bleeding edge - I have at least a dozen games installed that I haven't even tried yet. I bought my Vive between Christmas and New Year's. If you're not a gamer (I am not except for my current interest in VR), they make extensive use of a very mature game marketplace called Steam, for buying, licensing and downloading your games.

Amazing. You have to try this to believe it. Warning you will stop playing "Flat" games for a while

Pros: Almost everything.

Cons: Game selection is limited since its new, but in time the library of games will only get bigger and better.
Strap is not perfect but a new add on one will be out Q2 2017.

Other Thoughts: Yes if you have the means I highly suggest picking on up.

Prepare to be blown away!

Pros: - It's VR that works well
- Robustly built, it can take a drop or bang into the wall w/o falling apart. (Personal experience talking)
- The immersive 3-dimensional quality must be experienced to be believed
- Decent catalogue of VR content is already available on Steam and elsewhere for mostly reasonable prices
- New content coming out practically every day
- Playing with friends on the other side of the country, or the world, can feel like your in the room together - priceless!

Cons: - Very steep price tag for base system
- Low resolution of display
- Requires serious PC horsepower to run effectively so you don't throw up (personal experience again) Figure at a minimum you will need to run a GTX 980ti and ideally a GTX 1070 or 1080. I have a GTX 970 installed in another rig and that was just not enough to keep the Vive running at a full 60 fps
- Need for an umbilical cord to the host PC takes away from the immersive experience
- Not many third-party add-ons, but there is a 3rd-party wireless retrofit coming out soon. Will update

Other Thoughts: If you're budget can afford both the HTC Vive and the computer capable of running it, no reason to wait - Get it!!
This is a well thought out, well executed 3D Virtual Reality system that delivers on the promise of a truly immersive experience. Yes, the resolution could be a lot better, yes the umbilical cord is a PITA, yes it's expensive, but WOW, when you're standing on the bridge of a Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer, you actually feel like you're there. It's downright erie! I still catch myself moving to avoid virtual walls, doors and objects after a month of VR experience. If you like Haunted Houses, there are several demos and games that deliver a fright-fest that will leave you panting and scared out of your wits! Want to see a 360 degree 3D view from the top of a tall mountain? Not a problem. There's even VR social programs where you can hob nob and talk to people from around the country and the world. Stroll through a park, or ride a roller-coaster (no lines!) and your mind will believe you are actually there. The only thing missing is the actual reality, but hey, most people I know say that can be an overrated experience! lol
Cant wait for the wireless, hi-res HTC Vive-2 to come out! But until then, I'll literally be seeing you on the other side!
