    Im new to VR, still trying to decide if I am going to dip my toes in this format or not. Yes, this review is not entry level but there is that constant wait and see what improvements come next concern. Yeah, thats the PC gaming world, the bigger better tech of the future. Just dont know what to do.

    Whoah whoah whoah, that dig at Windows Mixed Reality is uncalled for. I just got a Lenovo Explorer and this thing is awesome. The tracking is superb, I've only had issues when I inadvertently put the controllers behind furniture so the cameras can't see them. Screw setting up a ton of sensors everywhere in the small room most people have their computers in when you are only going to use them a few times a week, if that. Windows MR is the sensible take on VR IMO and the Lenovo in particular is ergonomically superior to almost all of them and the screens aren't bad compared to all except the upcoming Pimax 5K+ (note I didn't say 8K, the 8K is actually trash compared to the 5K, there are reviewers showing shots through the lens). Windows MR also benefits because it can play both Vive and Oculus games due to the controllers having joysticks and touchpads. Class act all around.

    I have had my vive Pro for about 8 months so far after spending many hours on my friend's original Vive and I fully disagree with Linus. Getting over the price (for the full kit) it's really good. Just because Linus didn't realise you don't get the full kit in his he put it in a bad light. The resolution is brilliant. Just watch nerdcubed's video, it's much more informative than this comment.

      Get the Vive Pro if you have the money. It is better with the full kit.

  • Anthony A

    VR needs all this though if it wants to exist later on.
    1. No Screen-Door effect A.K.A HIGHER RESOLUTION IN HMD
    2. Better controllers! I don't ever want to have a risk greater than 1% of smashing my controller into the wall
    3. Better PRICES, the VIVE PRO kit is over $800. That is UNACCEPTABLE and VR *WILL DIE FOREVER* if it stays higher than $700 TBH! There won't be enough people enticed to pay that much.
    4. Better tracking, sometimes (rarely-ish) my controller would be in sight but because I moved fast or something, it would fly off in VR for a second!
    5. WIRELESS CAPABILITIES/Accessory has to be included with the VR Kit and has to last at least 3 hours on a full charge
    6. It'd be great if someone (Looks at VIVE and OCULUS makers) could mass produce a Cyberith or Virtuix Omni "accessory" that was affordable ($300 to $600) for the PUBLIC and not have it just be available for commercial use smh.

    Back when the Pro came out, I would pretty much agree with all the points in this video. However, after owning and using the unit both at home and at work (3D scene viewing of CAD models), I have to say that it is absolutely worth the money. It looks way better than the OG Vive (the panels), the weighting makes it more comfortable to keep on my head, and the headphones (when mated with those 3D printed clips that slide on the track and force more pressure to your ears) sound really good. If you have the money and you are wanting to stay in the SteamVR basestation space, it's a no brainer. Yes it costs a lot but I think once you start to realize that VR is a hobby, it becomes much easier to fork down the money. NONE OF US are going to make money back on selling these units so just treat it like a trip to the movies or whatnot. It's just for enjoyment.

    Ah VR. To me the tech is just not there yet to warrant investing that kind of money into it. The gaming library is just sad. No big titles, just some flashy "tech demos" at best. The hardware itself is far too bulky and uncomfortable to wear for a long time. Even the Playstation VR annoyed me after less than 30 minutes and that's a seated experience. The resolution for these things is horrible. The hardware to drive it is just not there yet. But for this kind of field of view, we need to go 8k and beyond while at the same time not sacrificing on refresh rates and motion tracking. Motion sickness is another serious issue. One that can only be resolved with improved hardware that allow for those higher resolutions, refresh rates and better tracking. And the controllers need to be replaced by a lightweight, glove-type tracking device. With individual finger tracking. I think it'll be at least another 5 years before these things really take off.

    I simply wouldn't and the HTC rep dude kept asking why??.. it was like he simply couldn't comprehend that my Google cardboard VR fitted with my budget Chinese-phone Le2Max with 2K 5.7" LCD screen was miles ahead of his crappy VR 1440p OLEDs (come on 2k vs 1440p it's a no brainer, literally)
    but wicked that he then dump it on you.
