I've always wanted a VR headset

20 September 2018
The Vive has lived up to my expectations and more. I have watched many reviews on VR products before deciding to get one, and I am happy with my choice. Initially I was sceptical about the controllers, as the new touch controllers for the Oculus are better designed. However as soon as I played for a while with the Vive wands, I realised how well made they were, even if a bit less superior to the touch controllers. I found the Vive easy to set up and get going, however if you don't want holes in your wall I would suggest getting some tripod stands or something similar, to hold the sensor boxes. When I initially had my Vive set up, I only had a...

I was initially skeptical about VR. I'd played with a samsung gear and high end phone and thought it looked cool but didn't see much future in it.

htv Vive review

6 August 2018
I've wanted one since I first heard of the Vive. Turns out it's awesome. 10/10 expectations met.
No shortage of games, media or things to do.

Makes elite dangerous so good to play.

Amazing piece of hardware

26 July 2018
It's just a whole new level of entertainment. Great for parties to pass around, and just as great for using by yourself. PB tech was super fast with getting the order ready and shipping it, I received it two days after purchase and everything was in perfect condition. I highly, highly recommend the HTC Vive to anyone who can support running VR on their PC.

HTC Vive

9 July 2018
Amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone with cash laying around, was a hassle-free setup and I was able to jump right into it after about 10 minutes. Resolution and FOV is good but definitely leaves you wanting more. One issue I had was measuring my available VR space beforehand, make sure you double check that you are going to meet the minimum space requirements if you plan on using room scale often.

awesome

10 May 2018
amazing everything is so good there is only 2 upgrades that could be done over the next ten years.
1- better resolution (4K) problem is most computers not powerful enough
2- more AAA games (if you buy this more games will be made)

apart from that everything is awesome so lifelike easy install need a decent amount of space awesome if you have a friend that has vr as well for some multiplayer aspects. my family comes over to use it. awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome

Would recommend

16 April 2018
So, how is it? It's great, it really does feel like something out of this world. Over the first few days of playing around with it I was taken aback by how immersive VR really turned out to be. I don't feel as though my expectations were high enough before jumping in to it, there were several occasions where I would laugh out ecstatically over how absurdly cool this thing was. I shared the experience with my parents & felt true contentment in seeing them lose their minds over how surreal it was for them to journey through virtual space for the first time.

If you're thinking of buying one, I'd definitely recommend it. There is real value ...

Loads of fun, only had minor problems getting it to run through DisplayPort rather than stock HDMI.

Question:
What other kit is required to make this system work?
Asked by: Dianne on 23 November 2018
Answer:
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)
Answered by: Bryan Senior on 25 November 2018
Question:
Does anyone know where you could test the experience?
Asked by: Neo on 12 September 2018
Answer:
A bit of a necro perhaps but in case someone passes by the vrclub 33 Hurstmere road, Takapuna has a htv vive 1 setup, just did with 5 of us, im hooked, now to decide what to invest in
Answered by: jan leget on 25 March 2019
Answer:
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.
