HTC Vive

Amazing, i have had plenty of chances to try it before buying one, and even owning one was worth it, for me the best part of owning a HTC VIVE is seeing the faces of people when they have their first experience.

For people who are thinking of owning one, please make sure you run the Steamvr Performance Test and make sure you can run it, second, if you want the full experience make sure you have a room setup where you can at lest setup a 2m x 2m square for lots of room to explore the infinite worlds at you're fingertips. *(also avoided vr chat, just my personal comment)

Thank you MITCHELL at PB

Paul is really enjoying his time "playing" on this and so are my husband and I; although for us it is more of a "fun exercise work-out" (I am in my 60's and my hubby is 70 next month).
Once we had rearranged our son's bedsit so the user can't bump into or trip over anything the setup was simple. My husband and I love the archery and the saber games ... alas I'm an old lady so I get killed pretty quick when the robots are shooting back... oh well ... you can't be good at everything I guess LOL. Just like to say a BIG "thank you" to Mitchell at PB Tech for his help and patience in advising us on this purchase!

This is a really amazing piece of technology. Here are some of my pros and cons.

Pros
Great immersion.
Amazing tracking.
Room scale.
Straight forward setup.

Cons
Buggy software.
A bit pixely.

But it is worth the price maybe my computer does not have much storage left so that might be messing with the software. I really do think you should get this if you are thinking about a vr. It is better than any other. I have tried the PSVR and it is nothing compered to this. So do get this.

This thing is insanely cool, worth every cent. you cant view this as just a monitor attached to your face its so so much more than that. its a whole new way to interact with games, it will change your gaming forever.

My expectations were wildly exceeded by the vive. You can watch people play online all you like, but until you're actually in there you'll never know the true magic. Be warned if you have an addictive personality though. I can see a lot of people losing themselves in this thing.

HTC Vive

I had high expectations for the Vive after watching numerous videos on youtube and seeing the reactions people had. I must say that those expectation were exceeded when i got one for myself. I would love to describe my experience but it is hard to find the words for how good this actually is. Every time i put this thing on i am amazed.

There are a couple of minor downsides. After a few hours it gets a little uncomfortable wearing the headset. The cord is slightly bothersome at times and there definitely is a noticeable screen door effect however none of these things detract from the amazing experience that you get with the vive.

Great piece of technology! The tracking and movement in side the Vive is perfect. A lot of games out for it already and free ones too.

Takes a bit of effort to set up. Wall mounts. Firmware updates on all devices. Etc.

The graphics are good but can be better. I recommend you have a GTX1080 card. Then you can double the graphics output via super sampling. Makes the picture really crisp!

The only issue I have is a little lens flare when some games use a lot of dark background with bright white lighting causing some flare. With the lens adjustments and contrast night mode inside steam this is almost eliminated.

Overall this hardwar...view more

Heaps of fun

I have used this for hundreds of hours since purchase and i still haven't run out of stuff to do. Vr minecraft is heaps of fun and it is free. Im still on the skyrim grind and it is kind of weird learning the controls but once you are used to them then it is a blast. Would recommend to anyone who is interested.

Awesome, but lots of screen door effect

The vive is a really awesome way to get into VR, but there is a noticeable screen door effect which can be annoying if you're watching videos. Games are fine though since you don't notice it through the fast-paced action.

Excellent but mine was faulty

Yes it's next level gaming, totally worth it, exhilarating, great for exercise, surpassed my expectations, turned my life around. I've mostly been playing To The Top and Beat Saber so far. I have a small frame but still don't find the headset *too* cumbersome but I'm sure the deluxe audio strap will help. I also recommend controller covers since they get sweaty and knocked sometimes. Anyway mine had something wrong with the USB so I got a new 3-in-1 cable and that fixed it. I was wracking my brain but didn't want to take it back to the shop because I need it every day, I have IST/anxiety/depression and it's the only thing that really helps.

I'm in love!

I adore my HTC Vive! The images are crisp and its supremely easy to set up. You can be in a virtual world very quickly from the time you open the box.

The strap for the headset feels a little insecure, but it will probably just take a bit more fiddling to get it right.

With the free membership to Viveport you dont even need to initially outlay money for games to get a feel for what you want to play.

Do make sure you have enough space to play though, there are two options, one for full room and one for standing/sitting. The standing option doesn't impact gameplay in any significant way so even with a small space you can still play....view more

What other kit is required to make this system work? Asked by: Guest on 23 November 2018

You'll need a computer to run it. Main thing it needs is a decent video card. Most people seem to go for a nvidia 1060 or higher. Then theres additional things like the upgraded sound strap (which i hear is really worth it) and perhaps some stands for the base station units (they can sit on bookshelves and the like if you have the right layout)

Some games were given out as a sort of promotion, which has changed since it was first put out on the market. It also depends on where you buy the headset from also as they may have a different game compared to others.
