If the Oculus Go was an appetizer for truly wireless VR, which is entirely self-contained and doesn’t rely on a PC, the Quest is closer to a main course. It’s not as immersive as desktop virtual reality, but it’s currently the easiest way to show off the potential of this new medium. You don’t have to set up any sensors — just throw on the headset, pick up the motion controllers, and you can jump into a complex virtual world anywhere.

  1. I tried to "throw on the headset" as you recommended but it landed back to front and not on my face. Carefully putting it on and adjusting the straps has worked out better for me.

  2. Not really, now with link the only downsides are comfort and refresh rate. But even so the upsides outweighs the downsides. There is a backlight be it uses an OLED screen, it has a higher resolution, can be used without cables and much more.

  3. The title of this review comes across as overly negative considering the review itself. The title makes it sound like they gave up something fundamental in achieving un-tethered VR but your experience seems to suggest that they actually kind of nailed it. And $399 when you don't need a pc will be the absolute cheapest way to get into VR for anyone who doesn't already have a powerful gaming pc. Basically it's the only VR that does what it does at this point, right?

  4. I wish I had one, it’s my dream to have one and I wish someone gave me one for free. I know it sounds insane but some people are so nice that they give away free virtual reality and I wish this video will give me one but you’ll probably or definitely will not give me one but if your nice enough, please give me one, Thank you by: Abner Jr Arguilla
