not a good deal
Not a good comment. Usually should provide reasoning...just saying. Just cause you don't think it's a good deal, doesn't mean others won't either.

Sales tax. Within the United States, Newegg.com charges tax on orders shipping to California, Indiana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Tennessee only.

I cancelled my vive order with HTC since it still hasn't shipped yet. Without sales tax (NY = $53.16), this for me is a slightly better deal relative to what's out there right now.

Sure rift is 349.99 no tax Newegg for 95% of america.

comes with a 50.00 headset


Same experience as vive and touch controllers are superior on rift
$350 for a Ripoff Rift is not a good deal compared to $200 for MR.

This is not a good deal until price goes down to Oculus rift price range . 349-399
Maybe Gen 2 Rift because Gen1 is still subpar to a Vive

Also stop bringing up Rift in a Vive thread if people wanted a Rift they would make alerts for the crappy rift.

ok let me teach you something about specs


MR uses LCD technology

Rift uses OLED technology

which one is better?laugh out loud
Ah... let's clarify. RGB LCD versus Pentile OLED. Which is better, the much higher resolution with far less SDE LCD. You should really try VR so you won't have such uneducated opinions.

Could you give a good reason that this deal is a good deal? If not I would hope you wouldn't comment next time.
You get a free $100 gift card. To some people, that would constitute as a good deal. Again, just because you might not think it's a good deal doesn't mean that everyone feels the same.

Not a great deal in contrast to the one that was on Amazon, was $599 + tax but included a $100 Amazon gift card and the Deluxe Audio strap ($100 value). If you're not in a rush for a Vive I'd hold out for something like that again.

Ive owned both since they came out and have 300+ hours on my Vive compared to the 40-50 that Ive put into the Rift mostly to use the new controllers which came a year late to the party.

It has nothing to do with the deal being medicore its the fact you're trying to sell Rifts in a Vive thread the people have already made up their mind and are not looking to switch.

Same experience? Nope. You must not have both. Room scale is WAY better on the Vive. There's a reason Rift price keeps dropping and has been sub-300 already. It's losing, badly in the VR sales wars. Losing by more than 2:1 to the Vive. People know it's inferior tech with the cameras that don't scale well and they're not buying.

Helped my brother get one today thru the vive.com. He helped me setup mine on christmas day. You get the audio strap, fallout vr, and 50 dollar steam gift card for $599 plus tax. That is probably the best deal out right now.
