    I bought this because I love to share VR with people. I was hoping for something that required less set-up, and this is mostly a fit.But it HURTS my head. I’m not prone to headaches or nausea – I use the Oculus Rift every day. But the Quest is too heavy, and doesn’t have facial interface meant to handle the weight. It digs into my cheekbones, and if I tilt it up off my cheekbones, it’s got to be strapped so tight that it hurts my forehead.Pros:- Powerful and beautiful. It’s got great rendering capability, and a great frame rate.- Fantastic display. Minimum screen door effect, no smearing, high resolution.- Portable. The guardian system is quick to set up, it’s tracking from the moment you put it on.- Headset tracking is flawless, and controller tracking is very good even around the edges.- Many of my games transferred over! I got Robo Recall, Tilt Brush, I Expect You To Die and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes for free, but I will have to re-purchase Beat Saber, Moss and Super Hot.Cons:- Heavy. I’m beyond belief how heavy this thing is, and how “sharp” the bottom of the facial interface feels. I won’t be able to play this much. I’m going to have to acclimate or return it, and I honestly wouldn’t bet on either outcome.- Short battery life. It’ll outlast a LONG game session, but it won’t outlast a road trip, so keep your charger handy. That being said, it’s amazing battery life considering what kind of power this thing has.- Screen sharing isn’t very good in quality or reliability, and some games like Beat Saber don’t support it. A wired option would be nice, or a more reliable wireless stream. I chose this because it’s easier to take places and share experiences and “screen sharing” was a selling point. I am disappointed.Also:- The audio is good considering it’s not over the ear, but it’s a disappointment that it is lacking the quality of an over-the-ear option.- Absolutely TINY game store. Since the store just opened today, many of the titles are labeled “Released 2 hours ago,” so I expect there will be more. The Rift had the same problem, and it quickly improved.

    The Oculus Quest is amazing. It has blown me away with its ease of use and attention to detail. This is pretty much the toy I have dreamed of since the rudimentary VR arcade games of the late 1980s. My one minor complaint is that the comfort level is merely satisfactory… I wish it was smaller and lighter, but this is a predictable concern when strapping a powerful game console to your face.SETUP: Within 10 minutes of opening the box, I was walking around inside a virtual world, adapting to my virtual hands by throwing VR paper airplanes and stacking VR blocks. Setup was incredibly quick and easy: download the phone app, put on the Quest, then use a controller to laser-draw a line around the edge of your open play area. All done.PLAY SPACE: Once you define your open play zone, you can walk around inside it safely while wearing Quest. If you approach the edge of the safe zone, the boundary becomes visible as a giant net in space, much like the walls of a Star Trek holodeck. If you reach or step through the boundary/net, there is a cool warning effect and your hand turns red. If you do not quickly return to the safe area, the VR world disappears and is replaced by a live camera view of your real environment. I can not say enough good things about this process/interface: simple, effective, seamless, robust, fun…SUPERB!Oculus recommends an open play space 6.5ft x 6.5ft, just enough to duck and dodge and hide behind cover. With a larger space, you will see the border/net less often. 10x10ft is plenty; I have never wanted to dive on the ground or anything.COMFORT: Quest is my first VR headset. The comfort level is about what I expected: it feels a little awkward, but not too bad, somewhat like a motorcycle helmet. The foam is soft, thick, and comfortable on my face. Adjustable straps on the sides and top (three total) are well-made and easy to adjust to suit my preferred snugness. Still, I am well aware that I have a computer hanging on my face.After about 60 minutes, I started to feel pressure soreness. Perhaps I have the straps too tight, but when I loosen them I fear that the headset may become unstable (shift on my head) if I jump around too much. There is definitely a trade-off here between facial comfort and tightness/stability.I wear prescription glasses. Quest includes a “spacer” you can place under the foam to create more space for glasses, and this worked well. My glasses did not interfere with anything.I never noticed any heat from the system, and my face never felt overheated, stuffy, or sweaty.GRAPHICS: The graphics look good, but not jaw-dropping. It feels like a 720p HDTV… plenty of resolution to create impressive visuals and details, especially with cartoony-style environments, but not enough pixels to make you forget you are looking at a video screen. Most importantly, motion was always smooth. I never noticed any stutter or framerate issues. Even fast-moving objects look great, with no ghosting or stuttering.CONCLUSION: Although the visual resolution feels a few years old, the frame rates are smooth, the system stays cool to the touch, and there are no wires to limit your motion. Super easy to use, perfect for travel and sharing. I am completely satisfied. Buy it.

  3. Honest Reviewer

    Pros:__________• Very comfortable on the head as there is an electric strap that goes around your head and one on top. Being a previous oculus owner, it’s like putting on a baseball cap. Overall it’s super easy to adjust and the foam fabric is snugged all around.• One of the few times I’m glad they still go with a plastic covering. You’re wearing this so the goal is to get it as light as possible.• Wireless, and…I mention wireless! No wires in any way. No PC’s, just put it on and begin.• Not disconnections from Wi-Fi, as it’s consistent throughout.• Oculus once again put some good effort into their built-in speakers. Very loud and immersive, while at the same time being aware of what going on in “your” world.• The built-in headphone jack is always great if you want to be fully immersed. I have to admit that I use the headphone jacks a lot more than I thought (especially in some horror games).• For more insight on the speakers, it’s an integrated backward setup. The result makes you feel that the sound is playing in all directions and not just focused on one place.• The Insight program is AWESOME! I’ve owned previous Oculus and one of the most annoying things is taking off the VR set because the outside world got in the way. That’s losing my VR controller after watching something on the Rift or just hitting the wall. With the new four mounted cameras, the Quest now can show you when you’re about to hit the wall. This is probably one of the best features they put in because now the Oculus monitors all your movements in the real world and just inputs them in whatever game. This is a dream for those who live in tiny/cramped rooms.• The Insight program basically allows you to play in almost any room of your choosing because it maps out the space where you’re at (It’s like setting up a border you can play in). I say this is awesome again because the games you play will now be, somewhat, customized to the space you’re in. Having this feature is such a relief (that includes jumping or crouching, as it will be registered in the game, if allowed.).• The resolution is beautiful for those who never used an Oculus, and it’s a nice upgrade from the Oculus Go (For non VR users, the overall resolution is an awesome sight. Not perfect, but it’s still great.)• Gaming setup takes probably 30 seconds. Just pick the game in your library and have fun.• The app works on the phone and in the Oculus. Newcomers, you’ll most likely buy games using your phone, like going through an app store. They have it on the Oculus, but the phone is a lot quicker to scroll and interact.• The screen itself is very clean. Just remember to treat it right. One scratch and any game or movie will be wasted since your focus will be on that scratch. Avoid this by putting it in its box (or a case, if you bought one) every time you finished. Don’t just toss it aside.• The tracking capabilities are spot on when I’m playing a game or viewing a 360-degree video.• 72Hz refresh rate. Just means that everything is smooth and non-glitchy. It also means less motion blur which that means less motion sickness for those who get it.• A huge section of games. From the date of my review, 50 launch games for this VR.• You can not only play games that are made and run from the previous Oculus (I believe only the most recent versions), but you can also be able to play against your friends who only have the older versions. I haven’t tested this layout yet as the only thing close to this is VR poker (which is fun, only if people actually talk in the game!)• The games I’ve mainly played is so far “Rise to Glory” and “Beat Saber.” The controllers are accurate, the speakers are loud, and the experience is quiet a ride.• Deleting games is just as easy as starting them. This is good to know because, depending on your games/movies, you may have to do some spring cleaning every now and then.• I moved to my bedroom to the living room and I found the reconfigure border mapping very quick.• The Passthrough view is the system that allows you to see your world without taking the set. To me, it’s kinda like a black and white night vision camera when viewing your world through the goggles. The four cameras are your eyes what they see, you’ll see (not perfect, but viewable).• When you’re about to past one of your play borders, the controller turns red.• Those who have glasses, the Oculus does come with a spacer for your glasses. I don’t use glasses so you need to read other reviewers who have them.• Putting the Oculus on it knows when I put it on and will wake up. This is also cool because you don’t even need to press any button to begin. But, to save power, I turn it off when I’m done. The bootup time is short anyway.• Yes, this is mainly for gaming, but honestly some of my favorite apps are Netflix, Sling, and Oculus’s short videos. Playing Netflix on this is an incredible sight and overall surfing the web and watching live TV on a movie theater size screen is an awesome experience. No glares, no annoyances, no nothing.• The touch controllers feel very solid, easy to use, a nice click response, and the grip for each button is a great design feature.• Does come with an extra-long USB power cable so you can still enjoy playing your games while it’s charging.• The Quest can track up to 4,000 square feet. Something that you should know for those who will be playing in a room bigger than this.• Great warning singles if you’re about to step out of your gaming borders.• It does remember up to five different locations that you mapped out when making your border. I only have two locations, but when I put the Quest on in one of those rooms, it instantly recognizes it.• The VR market is run by Oculus. You think VR, you think Oculus.Cons and Oks:__________• It’s expensive for the machine. This is not including any really cool games that you have to buy in the store. Yes, there are some nice free ones, but in my experience the best games you’ll have to pay up.• The games are not near to PC graphics but I would think around Nintendo Wii style of graphics. Keep in mind it’s still a bump in the previous version and this is an on-the-go type of VR. For great graphics, you’ll need a stronger computer to take on the challenge. Putting something that powerful in a tiny box is not there yet. Overall it’s still good for a casual gaming experience, just not ‘O My God.”• Battery life is an average, for me 2 hours. Maybe 2:30 if I’m just watching a movie or surfing the web / YouTube. Kind of the same battery life as the Oculus Go.• VR is still new, so you are limited in the games for playing VR. Since VR is not the mainstream there will be a setback on new games and, as mention before, higher cost to play prettier games.• You can’t play this outside. The sun is a big no-no for the lenses and cameras, as it will track off incorrectly. But something this pricey you can’t trust the outside world. It’s like walking on the sidewalk with your running PC, or gaming console. Leave it indoors (plus you’ll look like an idiot playing this in public).• More demanding games will eat more of your battery up.• Controllers require AA batteries. We live in a battery charging world so why is this even allowed?• Not only that, but I’m replacing these controller batteries a lot more than I should.• It’s a great experience to view the VR screen but you must know that it’s nowhere near photo realistic. On a white screen, I can see every little pixel in works. Still a great view, but nowhere realistic, an overall grainy look.• The built-in speakers are loud but to fully immerse you’ll need headphones.• I personally notice that the touch controller batter covers are a little loose.• No tracking data underneath the headset. You need to make sure that the controllers are in view in front of you in order of the headset to track it.• Any outside light still leaks through the nosepiece. It’s really insignificant in gaming, but watching a movie is a whole other experience. For a movie, I have to turn off the lights.• Even at 72Hz, you’ll still get a little nauseous. I don’t get very often but I’ll admit playing “Dead and Buried” made feel a little uneasy.• I was told you won’t be able to play all of Oculus Rift games. That kind of sucks for those who spend a decent amount of money on Rift games.• A price like this is greater than a PlayStation or an Xbox. Both have hundreds top of the line graphic games and millions of users.• A couple of times the controllers froze up when I accidentally hit both of them together when playing. I had to pull out the batteries in order for them to work again. Hopefully, this will be resolved with a software update.• Taking out the Oculus is easy but it’s still large task to pack it anywhere. For example, putting in my backpack does take a big bite out of storage. Note that if you’re planning to give this to someone for a birthday or a holiday, out of state, its best you give them a picture of it and tell them one will be shipped to you. When I got my Oculus Go, I was away from home and it was such a burden to find room when I needed to fly back. The Quest is no exception.• The concept of portable really means moving it from one room to another. Anything other than that is a significant hassle.• Any Rift games that have high resolution, if the Quest can play them, it may run at lower resolutions. The reason why is to optimize the lower-powered Snapdragon chip.• My friend has a big head and was having no comfort in using the Oculus.• I play for a long time it notices that the straps do make your head itchy.• You’ll need a phone to initially set up. Really not a big deal in the world we live in.• Charging fully, without playing takes two hours for me.• Charging fully, while playing games, never happen to me. In fact, there were some times that I was on 0-1% battery life, and the only reason it was working was that I was charging it at the same time. Playing high graphics games will not allow you to charge fully, but watching movies will.• IMPORTANT: It does not heat up quickly. This is a major issue for those who live in a cold environment. I discovered this after my second day working the Oculus, but if you live in a cold environment your lenses will fog up almost instantly. Since our bodies create heat, putting on the headset, your eyes give off heat that makes the lenses foggy. This goes away either the temperature outside is warm or the Oculus is warmed up with use. For those who live in cold environments, beware! You’ll need to play either a high graphics game to kill the lens fog or keep breathing on the lenses itself. If you decide to just watch a movie, you may be in for a surprise when your entire screen gets fogged. There is no way around this.• Looks wise, the Quest’s appearance is almost the same as the Rift.• Oculus app does allow you to cast on-screen action to a second display, but I notice some lag in this.• On some high graphics games, the login time does take some time.• Twice so far I had re-draw my borders in my room as the Quest, I guess, forgot to memorize one of my rooms. I don’t know if this a user error on me or a software error, but it’s worth noting.• Those of you who used the 2016 Oculus controllers, there isn’t much a change.• The headset will not sense obstacles on the fly. You need to trust your space.• The Oculus 360 videos are really simple that even a 4-year-old Oculus machine can run. We need videos that need to fit with the resolution that it’s currently built for.• Still takes some time trying to find the sweet spot for your eyes. I wish the headset will guide you in finding the correct sweet spot for your eyes.• Lastly looking through the lens is the same as looking through an old PC monitor. Your eyes start to get irritated after a decent amount of time in. Luckily by that time, the battery will be dead.Bottom Line:__________In the end, this is a great VR headset that will be perfect for those who want to get in the VR experience. Please note that this is in no way a replacement for any game console, rather than this is just a new toy. The issue with VR is that it isn’t really popular right now. Not only that but, for me, it does take time to get the VR in use before playing. You have put it on, get comfortable, and make sure that you have enough battery life. Unlike any other console, all you have to do it is turn it on, press play, and away you go. In the end, such a small portable VR does has drawbacks, as you can see from the “Cons” above.The Oculus Quest doesn’t really give us a step closer to a fully immerse experience but it’s still a fun toy to play with. If you have some extra cash then pick it up because it’s a great VR set (The camera system alone is worth the buy.). For those who want to get into VR than this a way to go 100%.Overall: Excellent casual gaming, great video streaming, and an all right battery system. For the common user this is a great buy, but for those who been here before, it’s a decent upgrade in portable VR.Hope I was a help to you.Love,Honest Reviewer.

    I bought 2 oculus quests, one for me and one for my girlfriend. However, after using mine for a while the speaker blew! I think I got a bad one because my girlfriends is fine. But buyer beware the headset isn’t the only price you pay! Games are between $10-$30 and they are fast to complete and are older style games. If this helped please give a thumbs up! And remember if you get a bad one send it back and swap it!Pros:WirelessClear visionComfortableEasy to use and setupBoundary markers and camera makes it easy to not hit stuff or hurt yourself!Cons:battery life. 2 hours of play on a 2 hour charge.Not all games available on here compared to steam vr.Build quality is questionable but seems to be pretty good.

  5. Nik Blach

    So I’ve used all the big VR devices up to this point and I feel the Quest is the beginning of where the mass market can finally get into them.Having it be wireless reduces all the setup that’s normally associated with any headset. Convenience goes a long way.ComfortWhile the PSVR is my vote for most comfortable headset, primarily cause of the weight distribution and how airy the inside feels, the quest fits nice and feel solid. I got a little warm after about 2 hours of playing, my forehead was sweating after running around my living room beating up robots. But it felt appropriate, not too hot, just sweat from playing an active game.Image Quality and PerformanceThe quest had no noticable screen door effect, one of my biggest issues with the Vive, and throughout my initial play sessions never had a stutter or graphic issue. It played nice and smooth. I didn’t feel sick. And more demanding games like Robo recall ran flawlessly.TrackingFlawless. Hands, head, and room. No issues with any. Makes room vr sensors seem prehistoric. And from opening the box to being in a game took maybe 4 minutes (excluding a software update that took about 5 minutes).FeaturesOne of the most interesting built in features is casting. I can send the headset image to my phone, and then to other devices, with just the hit of a button. You can also record and other things. That’s very nice when you’re showing someone who is less familiar with VR, since you can follow along with them on your phone. Also probably good if you’re into streaming and all that.SoundI think I’ll end up buying the official oculus headphones. Not cause the sound isnt good, it is, but because I want to play quieter. The speakers are pretty loud.And as a final note, I get about 2.5 hours of playtime before deciding to charge it. It comes with a very long USBC cable and works well with battery packs.My only complaint so far is the battery slider on the controllers is in a very.. weird spot. And they can slide if you’re gripping too hard and jerk around. Not a deal breaker, just weird. Easily fixed with a tiny piece of tape or something. Or not holding the controller in a way that could cause the battery case to slide open.

  6. Ralph

    Pros:-PS2 Level graphics. This maybe generous, but they were better than I expected.-Cable free lets you explore around as much as you want. Define the room size during setup-The most fun you can have for $400Cons:-PS2 Level graphics (Rift S users may not be impressed)-Virtual wall isnt always visible when you need it. Accidentally punched real life wall during Creed demo.-Multiplayer logistics might be challengingConclusion: this was my first VR headset to own, and I walked away from my first experience thinking “video games will never be the same.” It’s too good and too fun.

  7. Rob Williams

    I’ve had almost every version of Oculus VR and was an early adopter with owning both dev kits as both a gamer and a game designer.The Oculus Quest is a great leap forward and I would 100% recommend this headset to anyone looking to get into VR, you most likely also will only need the 64gb unless you plan on storing moves and such.My biggest issue with this headset would be it’s significantly heavier then the Oculus Go and Oculus Rift, the Oculus Go felt as close to wearing nothing as possible, its way more comfortable then the Quest, to the point I forget I’m wearing it sometimes. With the Quest I am constantly reminded it is on my face, to the point I just have to take it off after 20 minutes or so because it is uncomfortable. It is a very odd problem, because when I hold both of them in my hands the weight doesn’t seem that significant, but when I’m wearing the product it is 100% apparent. This being said if you have had little to no experience with the Go or Rift this most likely isn’t going to be a big issue.Other than this it is great, the games are amazing, tracking is awesome and being wireless is phenomenal.

  8. MrBond

    Basically, a PlayStation/XBox Killer. The trade-off in graphics is well worth the added playability of this standalone device. Even veterans of VR will agree. This is a milestone for VR and gaming. Cannot recommend enough.

  9. pixprotech

    First know I’m not a gamer and rarely play any. I don’t even own an gaming console. But we played some VR games on a relatives system and had a blast. So far the Quest has been really fun and gets me off the couch and doing some cardio. My only complaint is how difficult it is to connect to a tv so family and friends can watch as you take turns. We have yet to figure that out on the Quest.

    I have been interested in Oculus sets since I played the Rift at an arcade, but I know my PC doesn’t have the strength to handle that. I absolutely LOVE the Quest already. Its sound quality is shockingly good for not having headphones, there is the option of adding a glasses spacer, and it has my favorite game (Beat Saber)! Honestly, I prefer the Quest to the Rift because there is no tether attached. The Rift being hooked up felt awkward. No wires on this one!

  12. Stormflora

    There are a lot of positive reviews for this headset, but I feel like there’s a lot of problems that people didn’t detail about. I bought this optimistically, thinking it would be amazing, but there was a lot of trouble I experienced during its set up and use. This is a bit of a long read, but please bear with me.First off, you NEED, and I mean NEED, a (newish) smartphone with an Internet connection to set up the Oculus Quest. You can’t even emulate an Android to do it. You CANNOT avoid that requirement whatsoever. In my case, I didn’t have any smartphone that wasn’t old, so I had to call a friend over to use his to get it set up. You also need Wi-Fi, preferably 5 GHz. There is no PC activation with the Quest; heck, the Quest can’t even connect to the PC without a third-party hack. Don’t expect this headset to be the same as a Rift, because it isn’t. It is purely standalone, and you’re stuck with its own Oculus app store. Plus, you must connect your Facebook account to the Oculus AND provide payment details (e.g. credit card info) in order to complete registration. This is a huge privacy issue that many will not like.The Oculus app store doesn’t have a lot of apps in it, let alone free. All the apps that are available are easily upwards of $20 a pop. This doesn’t bother me too much since my sole reason for buying it was to wirelessly watch 360 videos on YouTube VR, but for others, it will be a major turnoff, since the Quest doesn’t come with any free games, just demos. For such an expensive headset, you’d think that Oculus would be generous enough to bundle some free full games with it, but I guess they just want to milk their customers with the novelty and hype.The headset itself is heavy and a bit uncomfortable. It constantly sags forward no matter what you try to do, so you’ll often need to support it with your hands. The cushion that goes on your face isn’t really that great either; it feels like it pushes in on random spots.Another problem I experienced, which Oculus needs to address, is quality control. The lens that came with my Quest had permanent streaks on the INSIDE, which you can’t avoid seeing. It almost felt like the headset was refurbished. It’s not too bad during bright scenes, but anywhere else, I see them blurring my vision. I’m not going to get an exchange for something like that now that I’ve gone through such a pain to get it set up, but Oculus seriously needs to get better quality control.Overall, aside from all of those issues, the headset itself is nice and does what it is intended to do, but the video quality is really poor for 360 videos (other apps seem to be fine though). I don’t know if it’s just because most YouTube content is still at low resolution right now, but it feels like I’m watching 480p video most of the time. This is likely not a Quest issue though; it’s probably the same no matter what headset you buy.As a beginner “early adopter” headset, this is pretty good for its price, but that’s about it. I’d stay away from VR headsets for at least a few more years, since the technology still isn’t perfect. In my particular case, since I’m strictly planning to use a VR headset for 360 videos, I’m content, but for people looking to immerse themselves in gaming, I’d recommend not doing so for now. There’s still not enough content, quality, and performance to justify the price.

  13. Benjamin L.

    Pros: Portable, Comfortable, well built. Vr is finally convenient, I have a HTC VIVE and found myself just not using it because of the hassle of setting it up, clearing space, etc.This solves that, the games like the nintendo switch, SHOW the down grade from being portable, BUT ITS PORTABLE! I have been taken this to work, and on my lunch I sit in my car and watch Prime, or netflix like I am in a movie theater. The games work well enough, you can tell its not PC graphics, but for fun VR you need mechanics not just graphics. Creed, Vader, Space Pirate Trainer, Robo recall, all amazing and fun games. Cons: Its not PC powered, so temper expectation for games.Media is amazing on it, from 3d vids, 360, or plain old netflix. Overall Review: I bought it on a whim as a stop gap for the Valve index, but this little device surprised me.For something I bought on a whim, its probably my favorite gaming purchase of the past year.

    Pros: The headset is a decent resolution at least.Also, the ease of access is amazing. True wireless! Cons: I’m not sure if I got a defective unit. My tracking is awful. I can’t score higher than an A on Expert Plus songs due to me constantly missing notes. I have multiple headsets, and will score S if I am playing on my Odyssey + even. The fact that the Oculus Quest has worse tracking than the Windows MR headsets is hilarious… Overall Review: Tracking is awful. Avoid it

    Awesome headset with really good quality with pretty good tracking. Looks really close to my Rift without some of the eye candy! The sound is actually amazing that comes out of it minus some bass. I am very happy with the Quest and hope to see more quality games released soon!

    I can take a rift like experience anywhere now. Textures are lower, but the higher resolution display is awesome. Plus no need to haul a computer around if you want to show family and friends

    It is great but you need to keep some things in mind before you buy. First, you need a mobile phone to do the initial setup. Comfort- I find it pretty good for about an hour then the contact points on my face start to get irritated. THis isnt a huge problem because I can only play for 2 hours anyways before the batteries are getting low. 2 hours of gaming is long enough for me. Ive tried HTC vive pro and Vive, both of which need a powerful PC to work. BOth didnt feel any more comfortable to me than the quest. I also didnt feel any video resolution difference between any of them was worth noting (vive seemed worse but it was still enjoyable) but I also only like watching movies in 720p max because I dont like 1080p. Being wireless and not reliant on a computer is great but the option will be there in NOvember to connect it to a powerful gaming computer and give you access to the Oculus Rift games library on Steam. I find the Oculus controllers were way more comfortable and nicer to use than HTC (personal preference I am sure). I spent alot of time between spending a massive amount on $$$ on a fancier headset but in the end, I loved the controllers better than the HTC, I love the portability of the headset (people at work can try it), it is super simple to setup, no messing around with sensors, just draw a circle around you with the controller and start playing. I loved that it is ANdroid and there is a large unofficial sideload site for games and I love that I still have the option to play all the steam VR games so I have all the same options for games as any other headset and the price is right.
