Most Critical Review

The headset that turned me off VR.

HTC VIVE Pro Virtual Reality Headset

Pros: higher resolution then the vive single connector cable very nice head strap and headphones

Cons: day one audio issues. it's not my drivers it's the device. constant disconnects inability to reliably find the vive wands inability to reliably find the vive basestations inexcusably bad customer support from htc let me just reaffirm the audio issues.

Overall Review: let me start this off by saying im not new to VR . i have owned a vive for 2 years and the vive pro since launch, before that i owned a dk1. the vive was great. it felt like a maker product. ya there were bugs but the community was close and took care of most of them. it felt like a normal early adopter tax. my only complaint was the 15 minute set up time before every vr session. oh that light house isnt detecting anything. oh this controller forgot it existed, my 100$ want that it didnt want the touchpad to function. things like this really soured the mood for me but i understood the idea of early adopter and could roll with it. so i was over the moon when i read about a higher resolution PROFESSIONAL VIVE. surely this product will have better support and fewer glitches. well 7 months later and the vive pro is going to be replaced with a rift or a samsung odyssey. the problem is the persistant, undocumented, unplayable, bethesda esque bugs. everything from audio glitching out and sounding as if it was being played through kanye west's abused computer or audio options not playing anything at all to resolution bugs where nothing scales at all from normal vive resolution. worse is that it suffers from every bug that the vive has as well! As we all know the support team is less than useless even for a 1000$ plastic piece of junk like this one. the worst part is that if it was consistently bad in the same or similar ways i could get used to it, work around it, maybe even find solutions but between valve/htc's garbage support, the inconsistency and the miniscule user base i can't justify trying to make this product work anymore. i just want to play simple game. i want to be able to log into elite dangerous and see something amazing, not a blurry mess i want to log into vrchat and hear my friends, not be ear ****** by a dank meme clip video because the audio is messed up. i want to be able to play skyrim and not watch my hands randomly disappear. TL:DR vive pro is the worst 1000$ i have spent on my pc set up yet.
