Lenovo.com has a 10% coupon (SAVE10) that can be applied to the new Oculus Rift S VR headset, bringing the price from $399 down to $359.10+tax and free shipping. This headset was only released 5 days ago, so it's rare to see a discount so soon.

Update: Use code ACCEXTRA10

This headset does require a VR-capable computer, but it features inside-out tracking so it doesn't need any external sensors. I just tried my friend's out today and it works really well.

Some context: This VR headset is produced by Lenovo for Oculus.

Previously Oculus made their own hardware, but decided with the Rift S to outsource it to Lenovo.


Lenovo is known for making the cheapest, least reliable Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets (Lenovo Explorer). This looks to be a slightly more premium updated version of the Lenovo Explorer, with some improvements, and Oculus branding.

Lenovo wants to promote their new headset, which is why you're seeing this discount (that is, they're the original manufacturer).


If you already have the previous Rift, there's no reason to upgrade as there are trade-offs with the Rift S:
  • Rift S has Inside-Out Tracking - No external sensors needed, making setup easier, but less accurate than using sensors
  • Rift S has higher resolution, but uses LCD instead of OLED screens - clearer, but worse blacks
  • Rift S uses the "helmet" headset design common in Windows Mixed Reality headsets with a sturdy knob to adjust the fit, whereas the previous rift was lighter and fit more like a hat with velcro straps to adjust the fit.
If you don't already own a headset, the Rift S is probably the easiest and most affordable way to get into it while having a decent experience, since it's Oculus, and presumably Lenovo didn't cheap out as much as they did with the Lenovo Explorer.

There are also other alternatives that may be more attractive for some people, like the Samsung Odyssey+ that are also inside-out and have OLED screens.

You sure can. You can even buy toys and website memberships that will make them.... interactive. Um, or so a friend told me.

Yes though Quest would be much better suited for that. Completely standalone. Two displays. IPD hardware adjustment. Easy to side load.
It's a huge step up from Go for video playback as well. A lot less screen door, much better clarity, and support higher resolution.
You can also utilize the convenient "hidden folder" feature so that the innocent souls eager to use your headsets to slash block won't see your friend's video collection.

You guys bitching back and forth has tired me off from buying either since I can't get a straight unbiased review.

I found this while looking for a deal on the Oculus Quest. I have a Samsung Odyssey HMD or I probably would have jumped on this deal, even though says "ships in 5-7 business days".

Still looking for a deal on the Quest though, if anyone knows of one!

I believe you get 10% off for using someone else's referral. I bought from amazon and can't figure out how to do referral so maybe it is available only for those who ordered from oculus directly.

The quest is better and you don't need a computer
The Quest is easier to get into but it isn't better when you have a gaming pc.

That's like saying a Toyota is better than a Audi. They aren't even in the same class or for the same users.
