HTC Vive Pro VR Headset Review!

By



We test and review the new HTC Vive Pro virtual reality headset! Two years after the release of the original Vive, HTC has upgraded the display, ergonomics, and camera system of their flagship HMD. We discuss how adding 70% more pixels affects gaming and other VR experiences, and who should get this headset. Plus, a bonus game review as we gush over Wipeout on PSVR!

  1. Honestly I was considering Vive pro since Oculus Rift S was a bit of a disappointment, but tbh watching this video and all the reviews that were uploaded today praising the resolution and especially the tracking of the Rift S controllers, I think I am really opted to get Rift S

  2. I believe and personally myself bought the pro, because Its my first time getting a vive and I will pay that extra bucks for a little higher quality than not.

  3. It's been out for a while now, and the graphic is still choppy, yet it's the most expensive VR gear out there. It has 3 and a half star review on most shopping platforms. Please consider lowering the price soon.

  4. me and my brother both want to buy a VR headset together, however we don't have a lot of money. we really want a wireless headset that runs well and were thinking of a htc vive pro (with the hand controllers) but i recently heard the Oculus quest was released. the quest is also a lot cheaper and easier to set up. which do i choose. (PS our PCs are high performance so hardware is not much of an issue)

  5. HTC Vive Pro is going to fail in marketing and go bankrupt. Regardless how powerful this machine is, there isn’t enough game content and way too expensive for average income population. Reminds me of Sega Dreamcast, a game system way ahead of its time and released in the wrong era in 90s. VR is still fresh and new in this generation and there is still full room for improvements. Oculus rift might go a little further because it’s simple and reflects the current generation, but they will fail in the end… But in the end console VR wins… Unless HTC vive teams up with Nintendo. Ha!

  6. Try the Pimax and you'll eat those "nothing needs higher resolution" crap. Only problem is that they are sold out. 5K and 8K with 150' view definitely makes a gigantic difference. Check out SweVivers videos on the subject.

    Main problem i see is that VR is getting MORE expensive when it should be head the other direction for mainstream adoption, hardware requirements for a computer that can run Fallout 4 VR are insane, and if you want to run something like Pimax and DCS, a 2080ti card is barely enough. I guess we have to wait 5-10 more years before technology catches up and can render at some quality that is sufficient. Sad really.

    I'm getting an ordinary vive, i just have to live with the screendoor effect and some time, like i've lived with the DK2 until now. VR is just an expensive toy for people with a fat wallet, and even if you fork out €5000 for hardware and an 8K HMD, you get passable quality – not high quality.

  7. I have the first HTC Vive and one of the single little things I don't like about it is the size of the size and the weight .They made an improve version but even bigger and heavier lol. Here we can compare the HTC Vive with the HTC Vive Pro:
    https://www.digitaltrends.com/virtual-reality/htc-vive-vs-htc-vive-pro/
    The Vive is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10 but the Pro version is only compatible with Windows 8 and 10. The Vive is rated 4 stars on 5 while the Vive pro is rated 3.5 stars on 5. About the wireless adapter pack, WATCH OUT! My friend bought one and he said it's not compatible with his video card; a 1080 Ti (not sure of the model). He's often getting blackouts. Try to make sure it's compatible with your video card before buying it.

  8. locked, built-in headphones, deal breaker. 2 steps forward, back. same with odyssey, what are we thinking, just to reduce wires, when most are growing into bluetooth anyway, what about those that gotta have their gaming over the ear headphones & mics, just ruled them out. im so disappointed in the pc vr scene, though i realize its such a low populated niche with profit to come much later on.
    all this time, looks like Sony still has the best balance.

  9. The screen door affect appears to be not as noticeable atleast. I feel like it would be worth it they include everything bundled for maybe a little more than the headset. The price right now this is way to high.
