I'm intrigued, i hear this one is actually really comfortable. Obviously will not be as good with tracking as a Rift or Vive, but could be a decent jumping point to get into VR.

Anyone have any experience with this one? Or for that matter, Acer refurbished goods?

Lenovo was at 149 from MS few days back, Bestbuy store did pricematch. Recertified Acer at 150$ is not a good deal IMO.
