POWERING THE BEST VR EXPERIENCE

VIVE recommends certain minimum-component specs for a PC to effectively run the VR experience. These components such as your graphics card, processor and memory all impact the quality of the VR experience you see inside the headset.

GRAPHICS CARD

The graphics card is the most important component in your PC for VR. It is responsible for the production of the graphics displayed inside the headset. The more powerful the graphics card, the more detail you will see in images during your VR experience.

PROCESSOR

Think of the processor as the brain of your computer. It's responsible for processing the data required to run virtual reality. The newer the processor, the more calculations that can be made to optimize the game for the best VR experience.

MEMORY

RAM is a form of data storage for frequently used computer programs, such as VR games. The more RAM you have, the more information the computer can store for faster access.

RECOMMENDED COMPUTER SPECS

For the best experience with VIVE, these computer specifications are recommended. To test your computer’s ability to power virtual reality, use the SteamVR Performance Test.

  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480, equivalent or better
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4590, AMD FX 8350, equivalent or better
  • Memory: 4GB RAM or more
  • Video out: HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 or newer
  • USB ports: 1x USB 2.0 or better
  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 or later

Tedious settup but worth the effort. Missing a cable though...

Pros: As long as you follow the instructions, its pretty much plug and play.
Barely noticed the wire running down my back, very immersive.
Though the quality and pixels are noticeable, once you start playing a game, you completely forget they're there.

Cons: Face can get pretty sweaty very fast.
Lens can get fogged up and you will find yourself needing to wipe them clean. make sure to use microfiber cloth.
The headset itself is very weighty on the face, but if you get the deluxe strap, it holds the headset so nice and snug its easy to forget you're wearing one to begin with.

Other Thoughts: I would have given this 5 stars, but upon arrival, the package did not come with the sync cable. In the product it clearly states this was supposed to come with a sync cable for the stations which it did not. I haven't bothered to contact support since it's such a minor issue, but this was very annoying even though I didn't need it. But there's no telling when I WILL need it. Please make sure to include everything that is described next time. I was told Newegg was very trustworthy, not a great start in my opinion.

Wonderful, Best gaming experience ever.

Pros: Without a doubt, the best gaming experience money can buy.

Cons: These are for the less tech savvy out there:
Can be a bit tricky to set up, please read the instructions carefully, or look up a video demonstration.
Error happen here and there, don't panic, most subside after a reboot, reseating cables, or a quick reinstall of software.
Needs a powerful PC to run this properly.

Other Thoughts: I have used this for over a year now, going strong since ~mid 2017.

Early 2018 I purchased the TPCAST wireless adapter, which I wholeheartedly recommend some form of wireless adapter for VR; its game changing (do your research to see which is the best for you). Since the wireless adapter is 3rd party, bugs happen here and there for me, but that is what I chose by modifying the original setup.

I chose this vs the Oculus because of the default VR support from Steam, and the easy (and larger) room-scale setup.
(as compared to the Oculus; I don't own it, but I have seen the set up for it, and I was not comfortable with messing with that)

As for actual gameplay, simply wonderful: I have shown my set up to hundreds of people. Every single one of them enjoyed, and had something to take away from their experience in VR. I highly recommend.

Great idea, bad execution

Pros: Very fun. VR will take over the exercise market someday, because many games will make you sweat. (BeatSabre, Sprint Vector, Gorn). Unlike other headsets, these come with standard controllers - that means all games will take advantage of them, and not have a "lowest common denominator" usage.

Cons: Vive support is terrible, the hardware is not reliable. This device has died multiple times for no reason. Vive claims it was "liquid damage" which is code for "sweat". But right on their site they advertise this as a product that will "make you sweat".

Other Thoughts: I would buy this product if they made it sweatproof.

Don't just consider buying this. Just buy it, NOW!!!

Pros: -1/3 of the cost of the Pro Kit
-Very nice and solid build quality
-Really comfortable to wear with extra face cushions for down the road
-Graphics are amazing. Very minimal "screen door" effect, but this also is depending on what content you are viewing will determine how much of this you'll notice. I didn't notice it until months down the road.
-Extremely easy to setup
-In addition to Steam, Vive also has it's own marketplace (View it on your monitor or in VR which is more attractive) with more titles for you to enjoy
-Tracking is pretty spot on, Only fails when the lighthouses view are obstructed (If you followed setup instructions this will not be an issue).
-Your current gaming headset/headphones should fit easily fit over the headset as I don't use the earbuds that come with the kit for sanitary reasons during a "party" situation.
-Camera on front of headset is a great idea to see your surroundings without removing the headset
-Controllers are easy to use and extremely light
-Straps already attached to controllers to prevent accidents ala Nintendo Wii
-Lighthouses do not require to be connected to your PC so less cables running across the room
-2 Free Months of Viveport Subscription free with purchase

Cons: -A bit pricey as Rift is $100 cheaper, and the Vive Pro Kit (Better picture quality) is a ridiculous $1400
-Highly possible to run into issues when upgrading firmware for the lighthouses, but solutions can easily be found in the steam community boards.
-Not a huge selection of AAA titles yet, but the library is still massive between viveport and steam together.
-Occasional issues with the controllers tracking while in-game can be frustrating at times, but if you did your setup properly you shouldn't experience this.
-Earbuds for sound is no-go if someone else wants to experience VR via your headset.
-Cables getting in the way in some of the more active experiences is quite a problem, forcing you to consider the wireless adapter that has it's own faults.
-The camera on the front of the headset is 100% absolutely abysmal! I have webcams from the 90s with more clarity. For the price of these kits this camera should be higher quality.
-Controllers are a bit bulky as I enjoy huge controllers, but these are ridiculously big (thank the higher power they are light as a feather).

Other Thoughts: I became a VR fanboy from trying out a friend's PS VR which in turned led me to building a PC just for VR (He's jealous now, lol). I really hope they keep improving on this product and release a 2nd generation that addresses the pitfalls of this generation. It is VERY immersive and easy to forget your surroundings. They say large "play area" and they meant it. Luckily for people such as myself there is a "standing only" play area. I mostly play racing sims that don't required a lot of movement so I'm able to enjoy fully enjoy all experiences without fear of tripping over or colliding with something. Great for parties, whether you enjoy experiences or enjoy playing games. This has been the best decision I've ever made to go VR. I cannot stress enough my love for this niche item. Maybe one day it'll be widely accepted and people don't get sick from vertigo(I don't). ProTip: Do NOT enter any "motion" experiences such as roller-coaster rides without proper rest and proper diet, and if you are under the weather. First night I setup at 3 am haven't slept since previous night, and I hadn't eaten in over 36 hours, all bad choices on my part. Stomach was spinning on the first 2 roller coasters rides. Overall great product, I had to nitpick to come up with "cons" HTC did a great job with this.
