You should probably avoid this

Pros: Loved it for the first three days. Some of the free demos were amazing. It was my first experience with VR and I was literally blown away by it. Unfortunately it was short lived.

Cons: Unit blinked out and crashed occasionally during first three days. Eventually it stopped being detected by the computer. When it was detected, it would display an error saying oculus software restart required.

After many hours of troubleshooting and trying various fixes, I finally assumed it must be a hardware issue and returned the original for a replacement. Unfortunately the replacement was dead on arrival. It had similar issues to the first unit. I reinstalled the software several times, tried every suggestion on their support site along with numerous more I found on redit and other sites including buying a powered USB 3.0 card that some suggested might help. Nothing worked.

Returning the second headset.

Other Thoughts: If they work out the issues with this, it would be a great product. When it worked the tracking was great and the graphics looked pretty great. There were way to many issues for me to recommend this to anyone.

First VR Experience

Pros: - sensors built in
- 1 cable

Cons: - it was defective
- passive view was static/snow similar to a TV with no antenna [plenty of light in the room]
- sensors cannot detect headset
- 3 hours troubleshooting shooting setup
- only 3 DOTS displayed inside HMD surrounded by static/snow similar to a TV with no antenna
- having to wait for a replacement to try again.

Other Thoughts: I own a Oculus ready PC with two 1TB SSD's, 16 GB DDR and a AMD Vega 64 running on Windows 10.

You would think it would be easy. installing the software, plug in Oculus Rift S , setup and play, but it did not work that way.

Instead, i got the pleasure of performing 3 Hours of Oculus recommended trouble shooting before giving up. Uninstalling USB Drivers, Windows Updates, Installing USB Drivers, disabling USB Selective suspend, allowing camera permissions, creating new user account and trying setup all over again, unplug for 10 seconds, try another USB 3 port, plug USB first wait 10 seconds then plug in display port, installing Oculus-support folder drivers, repeating all steps again, repairing Oculus software another 7 GB download, repeat all steps again - then do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around >.< ALL STEPS FAILED to make the device work. I did not want to reset my computer back to factory, i shouldn't have too, it works perfectly.

It felt like i was at work, being an IT Specialist supporting over 180 Users Daily...

I was worried when i seen the Lenovo Branding on the side of the Oculus Rift S HMD which i suspect is the overall problem after being a IT Specialist / Systems Engineer over 21 years, and experiencing products and performance from all Technology vendors.

Oculus Rift S - 2 Green check marks on the PC Software, HMD with static/snow, sensors cannot detect headset, 3 hours of troubleshooting, 3 dots floating in static/snow on the HMD as if something is loading, but never completes, and i waited, then waited some more after each recommended trouble shooting step.

Requested an RMA - going to ask for advanced replacement to cut down on the wait. i have waited for my VR moment with the Oculus Rift S and its all inclusive sensors and specs, but after this first VR experience it has me second guessing and asking myself "Did i choose the right VR Company?" Most definitely not a reparable first experience to say the least. Make me a believer Oculus/Lenovo...

Almost Perfect

Pros: -New head strap is way better vs Rift. I think it may even stay on for boxing games now but I have not tested that yet.
-Resolution improvement is very noticeable. Image is now clear and not blurry. This does reveal there are some intentionally blurred graphics in some of the games because the dev's thought you would never see it clearly on the rift anyways :D BUSTED!
-I love inside out tracking and not having to have 3 sensors and their wires going everywhere. I can't tell the difference in tracking personally.

Cons: -There is an occasional issue where a single frame of the video seems to be scrambled. It's very fast but I notice it. Breaks the immersion for me but I will live with it to get all the other wonderful gains over the Rift. I'm hoping it will be fixed with firmware and is not a bad memory in the buffer.
-Because of the increased resolution the frame rate struggles slightly more then it did before. I already have a GTX 1080 Ti and the RTX 2080 is just too !@#$ expensive. However, this is not the fault of the Rift S. Need to turn down graphics or get a new video card someday.

Other Thoughts: -Normally, I would not give a 5 star review unless I thought a product was perfect and this one does have that 1 minor issue. However, I'm so happy with the improvements and the issue is so minor and probably will be fixed that I am giving 5 stars anyways.
