Customer Review

Reviewed in Australia on 11 December 2020
Very solid build quality, controllers feel nice in your hand, and the user interface when you put the headset on is very, very immersive. I bought this headset to use for wireless VR gaming on my PC which can be done with this headset amazingly (assuming you have a WIFI6 modem and decent Ethernet connection to your PC it will work best with this setup) just remember when you buy the program called ‘Virtual Desktop’ to play PC VR without a cord that you buy it directly from the Oculus store with the app on your phone, it will not work if you purchase it from Steam (I made the mistake of getting it on Steam because it was about $9.00 cheaper at the time but when using SideQuest to upload it to the Oculus headset it would upload the files but the headset never recognised the purchase). The reason it has to be purchased on the oculus store is the headset itself is made by oculus (obviously) and it has an Oculus game store, so by purchasing it on the Oculus store it will recognise the purchase and allow you to add it to the headset much easier with SideQuest

Definitely do a bit of research before buying this for streaming VR to your PC.

But if you just want it for Standalone VR you absolutely can’t get any better value for money than the Oculus Quest 2 headset. I played a few free games using SideQuest and it was a great experience, but in the end the headset wasn’t for me. If you’re looking at buying something like this I personally feel like it’s a huge lifestyle / commitment and I don’t know if it’s the type of thing you’d buy to play Beat Saber once or twice every month. It blew me away seeing everything you can do with this headset, I just knew I don’t have the time to sit down and enjoy it all!
