Oculus Rift review

 

Oculus Rift is even better than before thanks to Touch

Snug fit ; Best VR games ; Growing list of movies and apps

Doesn't come with Touch ; Expensive ; Can cause nausea ; Room-scale requires additional sensors

Oculus Rift isn't the all-encompassing "future of entertainment," but we're optimistic that it might earn that title in the coming weeks, months and years.

Oculus Rift review: The VR revolution begins here

 

Our first dalliances with virtual reality (VR) were with Virtuality, a system created by W. Industries back in the early 90s, and it blew our minds at the time.

Amazing portal into all-new worlds, light and comfortable, easy to set-up with just one sensor, comes with an Xbox One controller, screen resolution and refresh rate is high, headphones built-in

Prone to screen burn if left near sunlight, requires a beefy PC, some games can make you feel nauseous

The Oculus Rift is the reason why Facebook bought the VR hardware company and it's easy to see why. But these are still early days for the technology - and while 2016 looked poised to be the year of VR, there's a whole lot more yet to come.

Oculus Rift with Oculus Touch review: new motion controllers finally make Oculus the King of VR

 

Vive-style 3D controls, with easier setup, at a slightly lower price? Now we're talking…

Plenty of games ; Now has motion controllers ; Cheaper and simpler to setup than Vive

You’ll need a powerhouse PC ; Not as comfortable as Vive ; Controllers arguably more complex than they need to be

Oculus Rift

 

When the Oculus Rift first launched, it fell behind the HTC Vive for two crucial reasons: there were no motion controls and it couldn't handle room scaling.

The Oculus Rift is a triumph for every tech head – this isn’t just a step towards the future, it is an almighty leap. It's by no means perfect, but it's already fulfilling a healthy fraction of its ultimate potential.

Oculus Rift review: How does the Rift compare to the HTC Vive?

After many years of talking, speculating and trialing pre-release hardware, we finally have our hands on the first consumer grade virtual reality headset in the world: the Oculus Rift CV1. Packing a pair of 1,080 x 1,200 pixel OLED displays behind a...

The fit is excellent and the weight distribution is near-perfect.

Fabric wearing is a concern.

We have been waiting for Oculus Rift since 2012, ever since Oculus VR launched their original Kickstarter campaign. Back then, it was a new and unexpected product category that emerged seemingly out of the blue. Not long after, the company was acquired...

High quality & design ; Excellent sound ; Very comfortable, great ergonomics ; User-friendly ; Acceptable picture quality ; Decent games selection

User interface too light ; Halo effect ; Resolution ; Price ; No Oculus Touch

Oculus VR has created the product that it promised. The technology is polished and ergonomics are good enough for everyone to enjoy VR. It has markedly reduced issues with resolution, the "screen door" effect, cumbersome installation, and simulator...
