Reviews from Best Buy :
The Oculus Rift S virtual reality system BLEW me away with its immersion, fun games, excellent controllers, superb motion tracking, and its ability to transport me away into wonderful & engrossing virtual worlds. The headset is very comfortable and weighted in a balanced way. I can game for hours and not feel head or neck fatigue. The audio is just so-so but a pair of good headphones or speakers can take care of that. There aren’t a lot of triple-A games but there are some really fun ones out there and the library is continually growing. All in all, the Rift S is a FANTASTIC piece of VR kit that is highly entertaining & fun to use. Even better, setup is fast and simple thanks to no external sensors, the Passthrough camera, and great Inside-Out tracking. Highly recommended.
-Simple, quick, & easy installation and setup.
-Only one cable connection needed to PC (the end of the cable neatly splits up into a USB Type A & Display Port).
-Display Port to mini-Display Port adapter included.
-3.5mm audio jack included for connecting your own headphones.
-The Halo-style headset is very comfortable & weight is well-balanced. Doesn’t put pressure on the nose.
-Easy to adjust for different head sizes with top velcro strap & back adjustment knob.
-The Touch controllers are light and very intuitive & easy to use.
-Inside-Out Tracking worked precisely to detect my head, arm, and hand movements. Also makes setup easier & quicker compared to using external room sensors.
-“Passthrough mode” is cool & enables one to see his or her surroundings even with the headset on.
-The “Guardian” feature is very helpful by setting up a “safe zone” in the room to play and move around in.
-Worked flawlessly with my gaming desktop (RTX 2080) & gaming laptop (Alienware m17, RTX 2070 Max Q).
-Depends on the game or video but the graphics are very nice & immersive.
-The pricing is right.
-Thanks to the cord, no batteries to recharge or heavy powerpacks to carry around.
-If you have a laptop that meets the requirements, the Rift S can become a portable VR gaming system. Good for family & friend gatherings.
-The Oculus Store app is easy to navigate, make purchases from, and adjust Rift S settings.
-Worked well with the “SteamVR” and “HTC Viveport Infinity” game store apps.
-The future of VR seems bright & there is a consistent influx of games including triple-A, Oculus exclusives.
-No physical mechanism to adjust for IPD (only software).
-Not a lot of triple-A titles at the moment.
-Audio quality could be better. I wish Oculus would make some snap-on headphones for the Rift S.
-Performing bow and arrow movements are awkward. The tracking “loses” my hand position when I pull the arrow back too far behind my head.
-Although MUCH better than Samsung Gear VR level of VR headsets, I wish the resolution was higher & denser. I can see pixels and jaggies often times. Still, it’s good enough for most.
-The cord becomes tangled up severely pretty easily. It’s very annoying & time consuming to untangle.
-No demo modes to try out games before purchase inside Oculus Store. Use the free trial of the HTC Viveport Infinity game service to try out games before buying.
