  1. Sara Wong Be

    The best value for money standalone VR headset.
    Dont go for the negative review that it has bad lense or is cheap bla bla bla, cause you cant even find any VR standalone headset at this price.

    1. Quality is great, even if you drop it it wont break easily and still works, check out ThrillSeeker channel on youtube for more strees test that guy did.

    2. Lenses are old once, yes they are but in this segment they wont dissapoint you compared to $1000 Valve Index

    3. Resolution and FOV is good but not great but perfect for movies and watching 3d movies, 360 movies and Oculus games for sure. Casual user wont even find any difference

    4. Great library of games, litttle expensive but you get sales now and then and you have sidequest if you want more for free and also with some tricks you can install any android apps.

    5. The glimps and your start to metaverse

    6. Battery is a concern but get the cable creation cable and you are goog to go. Get the 16ft one

    7. Install Sidequest. (Mobile and PC) if you want a lot of best and free content and if you are a advanced PC user. Not recommended for users not fimiliar with advance PC use or adb, but you get a tons of tutorial on youtube if you want to try.

    8. If you have a good PC, VR ready GPU, then this can play Steam VR as well, now it has Airlink wireless as well, but you need Wifi6, 5ghz band and PC connected using ethernet for best quality.

    9. Amazing hand tracking and controllers at this range

    10. In any case you end up scratching the lenses, get a polywatch solution and see the magic, it would be as good as new, thank me later for that advice. See youtube for more info

    11. Great mutiplayer capabilities, mic is great and stock speaker are just awesome, and you can still connect your own headsets as well.

    12. Get a rechargable battery for your controller, cost around rs400 with batgery and its charger.

    13. If you still have more money get an Elite strap for best comfort and wobble free experience.

    14. If you sweat much, mind that you might see fog on lense on prolong use, there are tons of alrernatives to try to avoid that, but the cheapest option is simply put a tissue to your forehead and put on the headset and good to go.

    15. You are still here that means you are convinced, just go for it and buy it, you will not regret for sure. Search me in case you need more assistance on Oculus, Ashura- is my Oculus id.

    First, a little background. I’m 73 years old. Above average in the activity department, adept mentally, although I am literally the only person I know who can lose something when standing perfectly still. I have four grandchildren. I hold down a full-time job as a writer, and a once-a-year gig teaching Rio Grande Board Games at the annual World Boardgaming Championships (WBC).
    It was at the most recent WBC that I was introduced to MetaQuest 2 and in particular, its bundled game called Beat Saber. I’d tried much cheaper VR systems, the ones that hold your phone and you have to download apps to run on them. This was an entirely different ball game. This was, I should note, not a function of the WBC. It just so happened that one of the site administrators had brought the system along with him and one evening, invited me to give it a try.
    The first issue that one should note is that once you put the headset for this system on, you are pretty much detached from the reality around you. This is fine as long as it’s just you and the machine, but you can forget about being outside the machine and trying to instruct someone inside the machine about what’s going on. As it happened, the man who introduced me to the system basically set it up for me – put it on his own head, clicked the right buttons – and then transferred the headset to me. With a couple of hand prompts and a word or two, Beat Saber, the program that comes with the MetaQuest 2 when you buy it these days, came on line and there I stood, with two controllers, one in each hand, as my eyes beheld on the screen in front of me, a series of square blocks coming at me, each with an arrow, pointing either up, down, right or left. The controllers operate two light sabers, one in each hand, and the object of this game is to swat the approaching blocks in the direction indicated by the arrow on them. There are also occasional large obstacles coming at you, like skinny walls, which appear like three-dimensional line drawings as they approach. You can’t swat these aside and the idea is to avoid them. In most cases, this entails just stepping out of their way, either to the right or the left, but dependent on some choices you make in Beat Saber, some of these objects can be wide and impossible to avoid unless you duck as they approach. No way to jump over them.
    And there’s music. At first, you don’t pick up on the idea that your swatting activity with the light sabers can occasionally be rhythmic, linked to the beat of the music. . .Beat Saber. Get it? But you’ll pick up on that fairly quickly. If you don’t dance and would like to, this is a good program that will force-feed you the concept of moving your body in beat with the rhythm of a song. You don’t realize you’re dancing because as far as you’re concerned, you’re swatting colored boxes with virtual reality light sabers. A note of caution. People familiar with the system and how it works will delight in recording video of your attempts to play the game; unbeknowst to you, ’cause you’re wrapped up in the headset and can’t see anything but what the machine is giving you to see. These people recording you will be LOL-ing themselves breathless, as you contort yourself in a relatively confined space, trying to dodge things and swat at the colored boxes.
    I made the mistake of failing to heed the warning that if I didn’t buy one of these systems soon, its price was going to go up. A lot. And it did. But I bought it anyway and am just beginning to tap into the available free apps and exploring the possibility of buying other ones.
    There’s a free Epic Roller Coaster app, which is fairly enjoyable, although oddly enough, both myself and my wife (now at home with our own MetaQuest 2) found ourselves getting a little queasy during the experience. Not sure what that’s about. She NEVER goes on real roller coasters and I do it all the time.
    Also found a walking-on-a-building-skeleton app that had me God knows how many stories high and though not generally afraid of heights (acrophobia), I wasn’t all that keen on walking on the available, skinny steel walkways to approach the edge. I’m in my living room, my mind knowing damn full well that I’m not only not as high as the program makes me think I am, but am, in fact, on solid ground. Yet, in an attempt to approach the edge and have a look OVER the edge, I am literally creeping forward, edging my foot out in front of me, making sure of my balance with each step. My mind absolutely refuses to grasp the concept that I am not in any danger.
    It should be noted that when you play in virtual reality, the mechanism has you define a space where you are going to be, literally drawing a perimeter line. It’s not because the machine is worried you might step off the big building you only think you’re on, but when you’re playing a game like Beat Saber, you want to make sure that your arm movements don’t knock over a lamp your Aunt Ethel gave you for Christmas last year, or in moving your legs around, you don’t accidentally kick the screen out of your new Smart TV.
    I haven’t been too excited by any of the first-person shooter kind of apps that are available. That kind of activity never lured me to the various systems that were already on the market. But I did notice and have been on the verge of pulling the trigger on some of the other activities, like table tennis, actual tennis and some other sports activities, like baseball. Am also interested in what is, at present, a small selection of board games, like Tsuro and chess (in a variety of different environments). They offer Catan (originally, Settlers of Catan) and though my interest in board games is strong, I never really liked Catan in real-time, so I’m not going to pick it up in VR.
    I recommend this system highly. The experience of good VR (and you can buy systems better than the basic one that I purchased) is mind-altering. It’s something to which your mind has never been previously exposed; an alternate reality with its own set of rules that takes some getting used to. It’s more expensive than pot, but unlike pot, it doesn’t just let your head create new connections and free it from everyday anxieties, it creates a reality within your brain that is intriguing to watch, hear and interact with.
    And as my age indicates, fun for all ages.
    Oh, and one other cautionary note for those of a certain advanced age. The first time I tried the system, at the WBC, my score at Beat Saber was abysmally low. So I tried again. And again. It wasn’t my hand movements with the controllers or the side-stepping away from approaching objects that got to me. It was the ducking at things that I had to let go over my head. I made the crouching moves necessary with reckless abandon. Once, again, and again. My upper thighs complained to me all of the next day. The good news is that it makes for good, healthy exercise.

    The Quest 2 is probably the best bang for the buck in VR market at the moment. At 200-250$ it is great with awesome software and hardware quality that exceeds the expectations you have at this price point. I bought it solely for Assassins Creed Nexus game and was not disappointed – that VR gaming experience literally cured my gaming exhaustion and brought back my interest in gaming. And that’s coming from a person who had been playing games all their life and got bored recently.

    A small note should be added without any decrease to score given since this is not hardwares’ fault – the VR isn’t for everyone. I got kinda dizzy first times I’ve played, but got used to VR and now am enjoying my time with the device. Just be aware that this may not be the same for you and you may not get used to it. This really depends on your vestibular system.

    La verdad que he probado por primera vez las VR y puedo decir que es bastante asombroso hay mucho que se puede hacer utilizando directamente las quest 2 o conectándolas a las pc, puedo decir que es bastante practica, los controles son muy inmersos y cómodos en su totalidad, por otro lado tienes funciones como usar los dedos de las manos como mando gracias a las cámaras de la parte de abajo para controlar las quest 2, compatible también si lo usas en pc. Puedo decir que tiene bastantes accesorios que hacen que el Quest 2 sea aun mas cómodo.
    Igualmente vi un par de observaciones y me atrevo a responderlas.

    Lo de la distancia de los ojos, cuenta solo con tres modos y puedo decir que directamente puede ser conflictivo para persona que se encuentran fuera del rango que tiene, por lo que he visto en otros videos sobre su antecesor este no tenia el problema por que se ajustaba un poco mas libre.

    Vista ligeramente borrosa esto si lo puedo confirmar pero igual no es algo que sea tan grave ya que al estar jugando no lo notas.

    La duración de la autonomía.
    A esto si pude notar que dura solo 2 horas, pero pues tengamos en cuenta el por que teniendo lo del seguimiento de los mandos las 4 cámaras que tiene en funcionamiento en todo momento para la inmersión en vr, una pantalla que casi da 2k a 120hz y una potencia que considero muy buena pues hace que todo esto se gaste rápido.
    ¿Como lo soluciono? Pues solo compra una PowerBank ya sea de 10000 MaH o 20000, con eso te dará suficiente para jugar durante unas 4 o 6 horas, al menos a mi me ha dado ese tiempo.

    Por otro lado la duración de la batería de los mandos es bastante larga eso si lo puedo asegurar.

    Temperatura.
    En lugares donde tengas ventilación y no en temperatura normal podrás notar que no se calienta, pero al andar en lugares donde no tengas ventilación y a temperatura normal vas a ver que si se calienta como cuando juegas con tu teléfono a brillo máximo
    He leido algunas observaciones de lo que es el Oculus Quest 2 sobre lo que es que puede ser incomodo

    Cosas que podrían ser desventaja?
    Pues el hecho de que requiere una cuenta obligatoria de Facebook para poder utilizarlo quizas para la mayoría dirá “MEH tengo cuenta de Facebook” pero recordemos que hay gente que no le gusta dicha plataforma y considero que pues no es necesario, igualmente la desventaja esta que las aplicaciones que hayas adquiridos se enlazan con dicha cuenta, si pierdes esa cuenta pierdes las aplicaciones. Y pues igual he leído algunas reseñas que dicen “Me cree una cuenta de Facebook y a la semana me la bloquearon por que decían que era cuenta falsa y perdí todas las aplicaciones adquiridas”.

    Por otro lado el sujetador es de un material de plástico y tela que a largo plazo de utilidad es incomodo, por suerte se pueden comprar otros sujetadores mas cómodos.

    ¿Como se conecta a la PC?
    Existen dos maneras la primera es usando AirLink que considero poco practico y problemático al menos de las veces que intente usar la pc, por otro lado puedes adquirir Virtual Desktop que cuesta 15 Dolares que pues igualmente lo mismo, pero este si es completamente practico. La segunda opción seria utilizando solo un cable que sea de 3.0 o superior, que por lo menos con uno de un Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 pro me ha servido.

    Lo vale? Si honestamente lo vale por la cantidad de juegos gratuitos que puedes descargar tanto en la plataforma oculus o de sidequest o también jugando en la PC.

    OJO: La foto con el sujetador actual se compro por separado no es el original.

    Works very well and very good quality!

    I’m 55 years old, and suffered NO motion sickness. This is because you can adjust the speed of movement and choose SITTING MODE. In many games you can “jump” to a spot.

    You will charge your headset and then set up a Metaquest account. After that with your headset on, you will be taken to an interface inside the VR world where you can adjust and tweak your personal settings to suit you. You will also see APPS which teach you how to use everything.

    Be aware that if you want to buy Metaquest games only, they WILL download directly onto the headset. From other sites like STEAM you need to have a computer capable of LINKING the headset to the game. Google the requirements. ( This info provided by my 20 something computer savvy son.)

    I have had my headset one week and I can truly say it is initially a LIFE CHANGING experience.
    -I am not on there to play combat games-
    If you want to TRAVEL, to PLACES IN NATURE you will not be disappointed!. National Parks around the world on BRINKS TRAVELER, NATURE TREK takes me to mountains, trees, water features and wildlife!!! TRIPP is …mind blowingly calming, imaginative, artistic, beautiful…outstanding. I still have to try 2 or 3 others I bought, but couldn’t wait to write this review.

    Yes it’s TRUE you CAN tell it’s not real, but it’s the next best thing to actually being there. What helps is that when you lean forward in your seat and look around, it’s in 3D all around you! You are totally immersed.

    So if anyone my age or older is hesitating for all the reasons that I was…don’t, go for it.
    I bought my games half price off in a sale, so I’m sure the sales will return.

    To summarize: In the beginning, the first week, I went on VR every evening and enjoyed discovering the wonderful, amazing and beautiful VR world. However it is a just form of entertainment and after the novelty wears off, like all things in life, after a short while, it will just become a part of entertainment / relaxation tools and won’t replace all your other interests. You will still want to read, watch movies, play match -3 🤣🤣🤣, cook, enjoy REAL hiking and REAL people. And then when the mood suits you you’ll be back on VR.

    Just so it’s known, my first experience of VR was a year ago, in an exhibition, “The Van Gogh Immersive Experience.” The VR there allowed you to travel THROUGH paintings! I traveled through the beloved “Cafe de Nuit”. I was in. AWE.

    I would LOVE IT if developers could develop more experiences like that, traveling into:
    paintings, museums, monuments, landmarks, documentaries, history…EVERYTHING PLEASE! And THANK YOU 🙏

    I bought the comfort headset, extra attachment, and it’s worth it to get a good fit. Also if one of your eyes is sharper than the other like mine you can buy lens relacements on Amazon (I believe, I still have to look into it more). You need to know you eyeglasses prescription strength. That’s the funny thing, if in real life you need to move closer to a sign to read it, you will in VR too !!! 🤣 🤣 🤣

    Llevo 1 año con el producto y me encantan mis meta quest 2. Realmente tener un producto que tenga una dimensión como experiencia es fascinante, y más aún pensando que es algo que puedes tener en tu recámara y en formato stand alone. Es una pena que poca gente conozca y tenga un dispositivo de estos. Espero que ahora con el anuncio de Apple la gente se anime a comprar dispositivos de realidad virtual /mixta, sobre todo de meta, ya que el dispositivo tiene un precio bastante accesible por una tecnología realmente maravillosa. Definitivamente compraré los meta quest 3 en cuanto salgan y animo a las personas a adquirir una experiencia de estas, no se arrepentirán.

    Cosas que podrían cambiar en un futuro:
    1. la visión.
    Aunque es buena, aún es borrosa y a veces poco clara. Estuve probando y las imágenes dejan de distinguirse con claridad a una distancia de 40 a 60 metros, que es bastante, después de eso las imágenes se tornan borrosas y difíciles de ver. Claro que todo se puede hacer: ver películas, videos, jugar, descansar, etc. La visión no es impedimento de nada, solo podría mejorar bastante. Está característica definitivamente mejora en las quest pro 2 y muy posiblemente en las meta quest 3 cuando salgan.

    2. La correa: la correa es muy incómoda. Ajustarla para diferentes personas es tedioso además de que es incómoda en largos periodos de uso y resbala bastante sobre la cabeza. Ocurre que si no está muy apretada a la cabeza (lo cual es muy incómodo), al momento de girar los visores resbalan. La solución es comprar otra correa más cómoda, aunque al principio si te quedas sin dinero por la adquisición tendrás que aguantar un rato con esa correa.

    3. Precio de la tienda: los juegos dentro de la tienda de oculus pueden llegar a ser 2 veces más caros que en Steam por ejemplo. Se entiende porque están optimizados para un dispositivo stand alone. No obstante, a veces este precio de verdad puede llegar a estar muy inflado, tanto que podrías preferir comprar la versión de PC y sacrificar un poquito el movimiento libre con un cable tipo c que se conecte a tu PC. Cabe recalcar que el dispositivo cuenta con un sistema que permite la conexión vía WIFI con tu computadora para poder acceder a los juegos de PC sin cable, lo único que necesitas es tener una muy buena conexión dedicada únicamente para los visores. En mi caso preferí conectarlo con cable para tener menos lag.

    4. Calor. Después de un uso de aproximadamente 30 – 40 minutos, tal vez un poco más (dependiendo de la aplicación que se esté usando) el dispositivo puede llegar a calentarse haciendo que realmente sudes adentro de los visores. En climas más fríos esto no es problema, pero si vives en un lugar cálido podría llegar a ser bastante incómodo.

    En resumen, las meta quest 2 han Sido unos visores que han cumplido, satisfecho e incluso superado por mucho lo que esperaba del producto. Es una experiencia completa cada vez que te los pones. Siempre es la misma emoción que sientes la primera vez que los usas y más si te aventuras a probar experiencias de diferentes géneros: terror, aventura, sci fi, etc.
    También ha Sido una gran herramienta de visualización para cosas de trabajo. Por lo que, las meta quest son más que una consola, son una herramienta para aquellos que quieran usarlas para este enfoque.

    Recomiendo ampliamente la adquisición de unos visores.

    ## Pros:
    – Cheap, Meta is selling at this price probably at a loss to attract more people. 128GB for around 33-35k is a great price.
    – Relatively higher resolution compared to a non-existent competition in this price range.
    – The quality of sensors is top notch. The tracking is extremely accurate.
    – It’s relatively lightweight and can run off battery which means no cables. Very convenient and definitely the future direction.

    ## Areas for improvement:

    – The displays could use OLED for better blacks. Though using OLED will hurt longevity so this one gets a pass. Currently blacks are like gray and that is something you will notice if you look for it.
    – The resolution could use an improvement. Again, it’s an extremely competitive resolution for the price, but since it’s so close to your eyes, even this feels pixelated and low res. It’s early VR tech so expect that to improve with time.
    – The battery life is barely 2 hours on a full charge depending on what you’re viewing. It’s reasonably good, but in the future we could be looking at more efficient devices.
    – There should be a OS level simulated way to rotate when sitting still. It’s tedious to have to get up just to rotate to other side of a 360 degree video. Allow simulating that via controls or something on OS level.
    – The headset strap is not comfortable for long wearing sessions. I should not have to spend more money to get a better quality strap. Wearing this device is a primary function and you shouldn’t have to buy an accessory to make it better, regardless of the price. Only possible con I an think of, but it gets a pass this time.
    – On a related note, as this tech gets better, I expect components to shrink and this to get lighter and sleeker.
    – Would be nice to not have to create a Facebook account for this, but let’s be honest, that’s why they’re selling this at a loss. To collect more customers and collect your data to target ads at you. That’s how they make money, by selling ads and services.
    – Remotely installing apps from mobile is a hit or a miss. Most times it doesn’t start downloading and I have to manually trigger app downloads. I think it’s a temporary bug which they can easily fix.

    ## Other notes:
    – Use Firefox reality browser. Way better than default and support ad blocking, multiple window and is also far more convenient and reliable with Web XR experiences.
    – Give Oculus TV a try. It’s like YouTube VR but the interface is much nicer and the recommendations are also extremely good.
    – You can cast your Oculus view to your phone. This is super convenient when showing this to a friend or family member. Just cast to your phone so that you have a sense of what your friend/family member is seeing and guide them accordingly.

    ## Summary:
    Great stuff honestly. Making VR affordable (regardless of the intentions) also opens it up to more developers across the world and that will only help give us better VR experiences over time. Looking forward to develop some WebXR and native oculus experiences using this.
