Actually picked one up today. Pretty good quality. worth more than $5. Only issue with cheap VR headset (including) this is that there is no button or magnetic switch.

1) You have to purchase a strong magnet and find an activation spot depending on what phone you have...or 2) use aluminum foil/copper tape trick "search google coardboard no magnet mod/hack. Hack didn't work for me...maybe i had tempered glass protector on my Moto Z

I like then unique design of having the phone slide in & out of the tray on the right hand side compared to most VR headsets where the front fold down. Has vents on sides and can accommodate charging cable while using. The lens the adjustable in 2 directions, front/back & side/side....a plus which many headsets don't have. Comfortable to wear, eye pads are supported, elastic straps for adjustable, unit is relatively light.

Good review on the headset. Yea it can't compare to the oculus rift but for only $5, really can't complain. It's the best set for the money I've seen besides the free cardboard version. Works fine with my smartphone and hours of fun for the kids and adults alike to try VR for the first time.
