Samsung Gear VR (2017 model) headset with controller $50 + free shipping

$49.99
+22 Deal Score
10,545 Views
This is the 2017 model, SM-R324, designed to be compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, S7 edge, Note5, S6 edge+, S6 and S6 edge. Compatibility details here: http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/supp...aq/1134413

It comes with a controller, and is supposed to be a big upgrade over the 2016 model.

This is NOT the newest model, SM-R325, a minor upgrade that added compatibility with the Note 8. I've read on various forums that you can actually fit the Note 8 into the older SM-R324, but it might be tight and I can't recommend it. Do your own research.

As stated in the description, this does not officially work with the Note 8, but you can find users online who say they had no problem getting it to fit. Do you own research though, I don't want to recommend doing something that could potentially break your phone.

I agree it's probably gimmicky, but this price makes it too tempting. I've been waiting for the price of the Gear VR (with the controller) to go down to impulse buy territory.

I know, if I were you I'd be debating it as well lol and maybe you will find a use for it, who knows... People use it for 3d design and stuff if you are into stuff like that

The gear vr is a very rich experience. The 3d movies in the cinema alone are worth buying a gear headset. I have been playing without the motion controller on a Note 4 (which i paid 100$ for a dev headset.) with the controller included i dont see why you wouldn't want to buy this. Id recommend play minecraft in vr. (Theres a fairly impressive amount of apps for free also) VR is not gimmicky on this unless you download some rollercoasters, have a blast for an hour, thinking eh that was neat...never to be used again. So thumbs up on this

2017 version has the controller for gaming, and is compatible with the S8/S8+ (I think you need to buy an adapter for the S8 on the 2016 model). I'm not sure how you would play newer games that require a controller with the 2016 model, might have to buy one separate.

I think the 2017 one also has adjustable lenses, for people with glasses, not sure about that though.
