Is this the BEST headset? Best price? Will it make me SICK? (read below)

[updated 2020/5/13] The same questions inevitably come up over and over on every VR headset deal thread. So we are posting all frequently asked Q&A here, and will update as more frequently asked questions come up.

  1. Why are some VR headset deals at full price?
    They have been in and out of stock everywhere even months before the pandemic. This video, while a bit OLD, provides some quick, hard stats on why the Quest was so popular that it's a deal even at MSRP: https://youtu.be/WMlckGWPENc. This NEW video https://youtu.be/QC-b-ZjCfk0?t=524 shows the lower quality Quest image next to the full quality PC VR headsets. Want to see why ALL the VR options are out of stock and which is best for YOU? https://youtu.be/Q7ophQDiyf4?t=3 is a great summary.
  2. Which VR Headset is the BEST?
    See the full community voted & ranked best VR Headsets.JoinUsInVR.com [steamcommunity.com] list of PROS/CONS and decide for yourself. Some are more portable. Some are better quality GFX. Some better tracking accuracy. Some less initial cost. Some less long term cost. NONE are all of these.
  3. What's Special about the Quest or the Index or....?
    The Quest is special because of two words: WIRELESS & PC-less. The Index is special because of the level of graphics/tracking/sound quality. The older Vive and others can also be played wireless, but require a PC. Many players in the JoinUsInVR.com [steamcommunity.com] community use established tricks like the "$20 near-wireless solution" to mix and match the options. But with full wireless you don't need cords/wires. You don't need lighthouses. You just put it on and start playing games anywhere inside your home, or outside your home, with complete freedom and no tripping over cords. But lighthouses are a 5 minutes and done setup, and the near-wireless setup isn't hard either. But it's also not portable. In the Quest everything is self-contained and ready to play games anywhere you go for a very reasonable MSRP starting at $399. As such, it is very accessible to newcomers who don't own a PC with a GTX 960 or better. It also appeals to enthusiasts who do own VR capable PC's and want to play PCVR games un-tethered, while still keeping it affordable (see #4 below). This wide range of appeal makes the Quest one of the most versatile VR headsets currently on the market. But there are also plenty of people who are not happy with the reduced image and tracking of the Quest. See #2 above and decide for yourself.
  4. Can I play SteamVR games AND Oculus games?
    For all PC VR sets this is the case. And SteamVR games available from many many stores (as often posted in SlickDeals VR here) and historically are much more economical in long term cost than buying from the Oculus store. Also, all Oculus "exclusive" games for the Rift can be played on a PCVR non-Oculus VR set, like the Vive or Index. See EchoVR.JoinUsInVR.com for an example & the free ReVive app needed.

    For the Quest, it cost a bit extra to do that. There are 2 methods to play PCVR games on the Quest, both require a VR capable PC:
    • Wired -- buy an Oculus Link cable and connect it between the Quest and a VR capable PC. The official Oculus Link cable is $79 MSRP. You could buy aftermarket cables starting in the $20's.
    • Wireless -- use Virtual Desktop app (make sure it's the version for the Quest, normally $20), or a number of free apps like ALVR, or try free Radeon ReLive VR if you have a newish AMD GPU in your PC. You would also need a good 5GHz wifi router. Once setup properly, wireless works about as well as wired, while remaining un-tethered. This video could help you troubleshoot most wireless issues you may encounter: https://youtu.be/Bm4kbHeXGrg.
  5. Will I get motion sick from using this?
    Almost everyone who tries the "motion sickness cure" steps voted & ranked by the community at tips.JoinUsInVR.com [steamcommunity.com] avoids it or eventually overcomes it. Some people are prone to motion sickness, others are not. If you fall into the former group, don't fret. Rest assured that many VR game developers are aware of this and have made accommodations in their VR games to minimize motion sickness. Take Half-Life Alyx for example, there are about 4 ways to move around inside the game, starting with the most comfortable (and least motion-sick inducing) "blink" movement. Many other VR games have similar accommodations. Unfortunately some games cannot get around this, such as car racing games. You can't exactly teleport your car around a track. This applies to any VR headsets, not just the Quest. Personally, I am extremely motion sick prone, and I am fine with 90% of games I play on the Quest. Some people also claim you could slowly condition yourself to be less motion sick prone, similar to how sailors get their sea legs. In addition, Oculus store has a comfort level rating for each game. If you are really sensitive, stick with "Comfortable" rated games. But not to worry, some of the best and most popular VR games are all rated Comfortable such as Beat Saber, SuperHot, Moss...etc.
  6. Can I play Half-Life Alyx on this?
    If it is a modern PCVR set such as the Rift, Vive, WMR, Index, Quest, then yes. (See #4 above for the quest method)
  7. Can I wear my glasses in this?
    Depends on the size of your glasses frame. But most people still end up being uncomfortable after prolonged sessions. Look into prescription VR lenses. They make them for just about every VR headsets on the market. Many options are available ranging from cheap DIY to the expensive. For example, some people paid $45 total for my pair of magnetic prescription lenses that quickly pop in and out of the Quest. Most people find these much more comfortable than wearing glasses inside the Quest.
  8. Can I sideload unofficial apps/games onto the Quest?
    Yes. SideQuest is your friend. There are great unofficial games you could sideload, such as Pavlov.
  9. Should I wait for the new upcoming version of VR Headsets?
    Predicting the future is always tough, especially when very little official information has been released. So I would personally not even try to tell you what to do. But if you must know, I would instead refer you to the community enthusiasts. Most of these guys follow VR news much longer and closer than probably most of us do, thus they may have better outlook. But again, don't take these predictions as gospels as no one knows the future for certain. Here is a very recent prediction video from one such VR community enthusiasts. If you just want the condensed version, he predicts the next version of the Quest would be released in May of 2021: https://youtu.be/YNtAcCHQINs. And it seems that a new PCVR set shows up a few times a year. But in general, the sooner you get into VR the better. MOST people say even the 4 year older VR kits are still 95% the same fun as the newer ones.
  10. What about PSVR, Oculus Go, & other dirt cheap options?
    Avoid them, or do your research first. Things like that are usually only 3DOF tracking and not 6DOF. Six Degrees Of Freedom tracking means everything is tracked in all 3D space, it's a full VR experience, and you are MUCH less likely to get sick. 3DOF is often considered only good for looking at things like videos. It is not "real VR". Don't be fooled. You most likely want controllers you can move in front of your body and see them move in the game. that's generally 6DOF. You also most likely want "room scale" tracking where you can turn in any direction and it still works. Things like PSVR don't do that. See the full community voted & ranked best VR Headsets.JoinUsInVR.com [steamcommunity.com] list of PROS/CONS and decide for yourself.

Use Privacy to make one and either create a burner card or pause it right after and set a $1 limit.

"You will be charged $19/month + tax starting in 30 days.

You won't be charged until after your 30-day free trial has completed. Memberships auto-renew at the end of each membership period. You can cancel renewal at any time."


It seems pretty easy to cancel membership and remove your card:

I just signed up and when it got to entering my credit card number it wouldn't let me pass until I confirmed my email with the link they sent me. I confirmed my email address and it had me enter my name and address to ship the liner and that was that. Never entered my credit card and got an order confirmation for the liner.

I can confirm this worked for me, here's how:

1) Go to https://www.getsupernatural.com/signup​ [getsupernatural.com] and fill out everything under "Create Account", this should take you to "Membership" which asks you for a credit card.
2) Before submitting the Membership page, you should get an email where, at the bottom, it says "Claim Your Liner".
3) Fill out the info on that page and you should get a confirmation email for your "complimentary sweatproof liner for your Oculus Quest headset"

It says I'll receive another email with tracking information, but we'll see.

Spend $5 on Amazon instead of saving $3 and getting their hooks in you. This is a subscription service and they are doing all the regular "gaming" style sleaze. Just my opinion though.

Fair enough sir. I'm just reached a point where I have so many of that going on that I just have to walk away before a new one even starts. But I do own a different aftermarket silicone insert and I can tell you that they are very nice for what they do. I own a VR arcade and purchased many of them to give to clients on our premium tier.
