Don't get this. Go for the Oculus Quest which is getting the capability to tether to PC, but also gives you standalone, wire-free VR.

Would not recommend the S at this point. Oculus seems to be slowly killing it off and putting all focus into the Quest.

Do you have something you can cite that supports that?

It is true that they're creating a USB-C tether. The experience visually on the quest will be similar to the Rift S, not identical, but similar. However, if you primarily use the Rift S for PC-based things as I do, there's no reason to get a Quest. I bought my Rift a long time ago. The Quest is heavier and less comfortable although some people have modded it to help. If you want a hybrid solution and will be playing both tethered and untethered often, or playing for only short periods of time (under an hour or so) then it's a great choice.

From what I understand, the S won't rely on visual tricks due to limited bandwidth like the Quest.

1. The release of the Oculus Link so you can play PCVR on the Quest.

2. The fact that Oculus hardly mentions the S anymore even though it came out May.

3. Hand tracking coming to the Quest but Oculus gives avoiding answers when asked if coming to the S.

4. Apps purchased for Oculus Go were able to be transferred to Quest. No similar option for S owners.

They haven't officially stated anything but the writing is on the wall. The Quest is also more locked in to the Oculus/Facebook ecosystem which is what the Zuck wants.

Still learning about VR stuff... is the 72Hz refresh rate on the Quest a big deal? Most other sets seem to be 80-90Hz.

If you find the Quest uncomfortable (heavy) or want the 128GB version but it's too expensive, those are good reasons to get the Rift S if you already have a beefy gaming PC. Otherwise the Quest is probably the better all-arounder once Oculus Link drops.

The quest should be supporting "Oculus Link" this month which turns it into a PC VR headset just like the Oculus Rift S. Its an $80 cable and the video will be compressed whereas it is not on the Rift S.
https://arstechnica.com/gaming/20...link-mode/

The Quest runs at 72hz. The Rift S runs at 80hz. I have a Rift CV1 (Runs at 90hz) and a Quest and i rarely notice the difference

They both utilize inside out tracking.

The quest will be getting hand/finger tracking early next year. So far NO word of it coming to Rift S. Looks just to be coming to the Quest so far. This feature alone may be worth getting the Quest over the Rift S
