That's better for you. It shows 225 for me. Still a good deal at that price.

Be careful with the third party sellers some people claim to not get the headset box or controller box because it's separate and they look the same.

This is good advice. If anyone is buying as a gift make sure you get both boxes and one has a headset and the other the controllers. This item is packed poorly by hp. I understand why they did it ( because they sell the headset alone) but its just a pain for all at the end of the day to make sure a second box, with no scannable upc, goes with the first box. I have had more than a few retail employees lament about making a mistake or dealing with a customer who never got the second box and never knew better. Literally an inventory has to be done (made harder of you sell the headset without controllers as well as the package with controllers) or security tapes reviewed to confirm a snafu was made and the customer is not a con artist. Its basically a con artists dream to get a unwitting employee to give them 'the missing box'. hp could have at least put a plastic wrap around both boxes to signify a headset+controllers package. they could have even just had some darn double sided sticky tape lol.

Before you buy this, don't be fooled by the better resolution compared to the HTC or the Oculus rift. It uses led screens in which case makes fast moving objects have blur effect compared to the other competitors. I strongly recommend you look up some reviews(linus for example) if you think this is for you.

I got the Lenovo during the 1-day $200 MS sale, I like it, and I guess the 110-degree FOV is better than the HP's 90 or 95, even though I haven't seen the difference for myself, but I do wish the Lenovo had a detachable cable for easier storage without having to do a reach-around. For now I'm using a cheap plastic toolbox w/ a notch cut out for the cord and just leave it plugged in.

With these VR sets it's definitely helpful to make use of whatever IPD adjustments are available to maximize the in-focus viewing area, and there's a few mm of software adjustment available for the Mixed Reality stuff through Windows. Then orient the physical lenses as close to perpendicular to your eyeline as possible, of course (or at least following the fitting instructions), and then doing a couple more tweaks to the IPD and fit to dial it in.

Yeah, you probably won't be happy. I also have the Lenovo mentioned by mangodrink and though my ipd is pretty close to 63mm any miss aligment of the headset starts to cause problems for me. Best save up for the Samsung or the new Vive.

Terrible review. More than 30% are 1 star reviews. Stay away.

I'm not saying this a good product because I don't have any first hand knowledge but if you read the 1-star reviews, most of them are not actually reviewing the product.

They are complaining that they only received either the headset or controllers; it was missing the other half.

I got this set during the MS sale. Comparing it to my Rift, it is the lesser but not by a whole lot. You are getting 80% of the Rift experience for ~40% of the cost when you consider a 3rd sensor and USB extension cable.

Better on Rift - Touch controllers feel nice, better contrast/colors, better store and better Steam VR support, respectable headphone solution, tracking is ~10% better

Better on WMR - resolution boost is nice, no external sensors to setup (can setup in a new room in ~5 min), cranial mount is just better than elastic straps pulling HMD to your face, lower system requirements makes it more accessible

I disagree with the "you need a decent computer". I run the Samsung on my Surface Pro 2017 (which only has Intel integrated graphics (the Iris Pro)) and for many things, it runs great.

Now, for blockbuster games (and even some games that seem simple but are taxing), you do need a decent desktop. But there's so much to enjoy with even a laptop with Intel graphics.

I own the Samsung and it has a hardware adjustment knob for 60-72 and to be honest, I can barely tell any different between 60 and 72. I can see the black edges creep in when I shrink it but the sharpness barely changes and I have to really look for it.

There's also a software IPD adjustment in the Windows settings (which I haven't tried because I don't see any difference in whatever physical IPD setting I use).
