You can get a decent VR HMD for around 250-300 dollars right now used. VR isn't super expensive like it was 3 years ago.

You don't need an Index to play it. You can get the Samsung Odyssey+ for $250 right now. More deals will pop up over the next week/month as well as Black Friday and the holidays approach.

Also it's not like there's no other VR games out there.

EDIT: It's $229 on Amazon. I actually went and bought it myself. I'll upgrade to the Index controller and base station close to HL:Alyx launch so technically it's $229 for a decent headset.

u/Lambpanties · 18 pointsr/pcgaming

Only $900+ in the UK with a whopping supply of one, what a steal!

It might be slightly petty but that does grate me about the "Oh there are cheap VR options" posts because.....there aren't for everyone. Hell, I'm in Africa and source from the UK so I'm behind 2 layers of fuckery, with even the first world one not getting a good deal. VR is expensive, the defense force out since Alyx was announced needs to accept that their reality is not universal by any means.

u/NoctiferPrime · 14 pointsr/pcgaming

You mean like this $230 Samsung Odyssey+, which is compatible with SteamVR and HL: Alyx, and is available to buy right now?

u/SourceThunderLight · 14 pointsr/Animemes

PS Moves are the worst VR controllers in existence, they weren't designed to be VR controllers, they were supposed to compete with the Wii controllers I guess, and they're not accurate enough for VR.

I really hate how Sony decided to use that instead of doing a little bit of refinement to it's design to make it better.

I recommend you Windows Mixed Reality if you want good cheap VR. Samsung Odyssey+ is currently on sale for $299, its one of the best cheap VR headsets you can get your hands on

This comment is directed to anyone who's interested in such. VR is awesome. Whoever said VR is dead few years back is dead wrong.

u/BullockHouse · 7 pointsr/HalfLife

Yeah, I don't actually recommend it unless you have a lot of disposable income. Valve was going for "highest quality VR experience available" and not "affordable". If you want a good VR headset on a reasonable budget, you probably want a Rift S($399), a used Vive ($400), or an Odyssey Plus( $349).

Vive and Odyssey plus have a better refresh rate. Vive is the hardest to set up, but has the most robust hand tracking, followed by the Rift S, followed by the Odyssey plus, which have progressively narrower zones of hand tracking. The Odyssey plus does have the nicest screen in terms of resolution of all three, so that's a significant advantage.

Oh, and don't get the Rift S if you have unusually widely or narrowly set eyes. The lack of hardware IPD adjustment really sucks for the far ends of the bell curve there.

u/stumpysharcat · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

Same price on Amazon, better return policy than B&H just in case you don't like it.

u/BossPat · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

Just used the coupon I had from purchasing an S10.

Also available from Amazon and BHphoto for the same price

u/Lazy_McLazington · 5 pointsr/Steam

Good thing the Odyssey+ is $250 right now

u/jacbergey · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

FWIW: Amazon currently has the same price as this link now:

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Wireless-Controllers-XE800ZBA-HC1US/dp/B07HS7R1RT/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=odyssey+%2B&qid=1574452514&sr=8-1.

This might be enough to push me over the edge and buying it. 5% cash back with Prime Rewards Visa brings the price down to less than $220.

u/Xander1988 · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

Same price with prime,

I just bought this. With nothing to compare to I love it.

Setup trouble shooting, none of this stuff takes longer than 5 minutes a piece to google(except maybe #2) but I just set it up yesterday:

  1. In the setup it says it requires a Bluetooth receiver on your pc but the headset has it integrated.
  2. Windows update was not actually updating to the most recent version without going to microsoft. This is important because it lets you use the camera pass through feature on WMR to see your surroundings. The update now button on that microsoft link will do it.
  3. To use WMR on steam you need to install steamVR AND after install windows mixed reality.
  4. Picture was remarkably less blurry going to steamVR settings and increasing super sampling to 200%, although more taxing on gpu
u/Ditchmag · 3 pointsr/WindowsMR

I have the Explorer and the Odyssey+ - do yourself a huge favor and get the Odyssey+.

Treat yourself, don't cheat yourself.

$385 new on Amazon just a little over budget, but a lot of extra value.

u/candre23 · 3 pointsr/simracing

Also very cheap at the moment - at least compared to the latest rift/vive offerings. It's not nearly as good at "proper" VR, but if you're just looking for a head-tracking, head-mounted display for sim racing, it's really the best deal going.

u/re4mat · 2 pointsr/WindowsMR

I bought it from american amazon and so far everything works great. Which is good considering no warranty where I'm at.

u/lastonearound · 2 pointsr/Steam

Thank you but even one of those budget options is way too costly for me. My countries currency isn't worth much, so I could either get a cheap VR set or pay my rent for around 6 months..

I really wanted to buy this:

And it is cheaper now, but I just can't afford it.

Why don't the two of you go to a VR arcade and see for yourselves? You will have a family outing and you will have great time :)

A Samsung Odyssey + is now only USD 229

u/monkeyst1ck · 2 pointsr/virtualreality

The only standalone HMD is Oculus Quest. Now if by standalone you mean it won't require external cameras that's a different matter.

The Odyssey Plus has great contrast with its AMOLED screens, and higher resolution then the HTC Vive. It's currently on sale for $299.

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Wireless-Controllers-XE800ZBA-HC1US/dp/B07HS7R1RT

u/sqwyddy · 2 pointsr/beatsaber

If you're looking for an alternative to the Rift S, I personally have and recommend the Samsung Odyssey+ WMR headset, as it's been on sale regularly (and for a while now) at 300 USD. It has a higher refresh rate than the Rift S (90Hz as opposed to 80Hz on the Rift S and 72Hz on the Quest), has a better panel and less SDE, as well as the famous Samsung AMOLED display panels, giving deeper blacks and more accurate colours. It also has hardware IPD adjustment, whereas the Rift S can only do software adjustment.

The only drawbacks that come to mind is that since the O+ has 2 cameras on the front to track the controllers (as opposed to four on the Quest and five on the Rift S), it tracks the controllers less accurately and tends to lose focus if the controllers are not in view of the cameras, as well as being tethered to your PC and being pushed further into the Windows ecosystem.

u/dnb321 · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Lots of people mentioned the Rift S which is a good bang/buck, but also look into Samsung Odyssey+ which is often only $300 on sales (and currently on sale)

They frequently go on sale on amazon, Microsoft, and other stores, I’ll edit in a link I found if I find it that shows amazon prices of the headset


u/MavenDe · 1 pointr/WindowsMR

It is an option. Act quick now. It is 299$ + 100 USD for shipping and customs to UK.

My cousin bought one from Amazon just yesterday.

Buy from Amazom.com, not from Amazon.co.uk.

Here it is for you:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HS7R1RT?pf_rd_p=2d1ab404-3b11-4c97-b3db-48081e145e35&pf_rd_r=T18YVG56QXCB8X4TASMZ

u/Soulfax · 1 pointr/WindowsMR

For someone who's is just getting in to VR the Lenovo is a great headset.

Before I bought my Lenovo for about 300 USD (which is a steal in most of Europe) I used the PSVR and the Lenovo is so much better. Superior resolution, much lighter and thus easier to move around in, significantly improved colours and blacks.

I also have a large head. Im forced to fully unscrew the back screw that tightens the headband and it's still kinda tight if I don't let my hair down.

But if you don't mind adding another 90 USD you should go for the Samsung Odisey + which is in almost every way superior to the Lenovo.

The main advantage of the Odisey + over the Lenovo, besides the increased resolution and less pronounced SDE, is that you don't need a Bluetooth dongle connected to your PC for controller paring. The Samsung has Bluetooth recivers in the headset it self.

From what I've read on this sub and other places online the O + controller tracking works great out of the box while other WMR headsets, like the Lenovo, are much more finicky - and that not even mentioning that the latest SteamVR update that introduced diffirent controller mapping for WMR controllers introduced more problems like pronounced shaking and jittier in WMR controllers.


If I were you in your shoes I would get the Odisey + in a heart beat over the Lenovo.

Hope this helps.

So I wanted to buy this https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Wireless-Controllers-XE800ZBA-HC1US/dp/B07HS7R1RT/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=18FXTWDI5IITU&keywords=windows+mixed+reality&qid=1573994064&sprefix=windows+mixed+%2Caps%2C418&sr=8-3 product, but couple of days ago the price was like 10 dollars more expensive and there were estimated import fees deposit to Poland. Now estimated fees are gone and the price is hidden. Does that mean I don't have to pay the fees? I live in Europe.

u/Ultimaniacx4 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That's right around the recommended specs for the Index. You can run any headset out there. The most affordable and adequate would be the HP WMR headset linked a couple comments up this thread but it looks like the best price is only if you get it in store and not every store carries them.

You could also try the Samsung Odyssey+. It has some advantages over the Rift S like better resolution and better built-in audio. But the Rift S has better tracking and massively reduced godray effects.

I wouldn't recommend a Vive or Vive pro. The pixel layout makes for a potentially blockier image than the other cheaper headsets. Some people don't like camera through the lens comparisons because they're not perfect examples but I feel like they give an vague idea of what to expect. Also, every advantage the Vive Pro has over the others is shared with the Index and then some.

You guys can still get it from Amazon.com and ship it to Canada for 50$ more. it's $229+ 46 for shipping import fees. Works out to be $365 Canadian. Better than nothing for those that want it cheap

This is the one I was linked to by Amazon Staff and I have a chat log of the dialogue. The customs alone was $200, which I think is the culprit in this matter. And even though they say I get refunded if the customs are less than they thought, it would take 60 days and I don't want to pay that much upfront.

I found a european website that sells it for €542 (around $620) but I understand I only have 30 days to return it. If it breaks after that (not due to myself), I won't have 2 years of warranty as we have in Denmark for all electronics by standard. So I don't dare. Otherwise a good price.

u/mjong99 · 1 pointr/malaysia

Anyone here that owns or tried a Samsung Odyssey + VR set care to share their opinion?
I'm really tempted to get one from Amazon right now for $290+$50(shipping)

Samsung HMD Odyssey+ - $355.00 new on Amazon.com as of 7/3/2019


Pros:

  • Low cost of entry. This headset and controller bundle is regularly on sale for $299.99 new, and can be had for as low as $250-270 refurbished.
  • Uses the halo mounting method, ideal for larger heads and long-term comfort.
  • 1440x1600 resolution per eye, equivalent to the HTC Vive Pro.
  • Superior anti-"screen door effect" filtering gives arguably the second-best overall image clarity on the VR market behind the HP Reverb.
  • Uses OLED panels, which provide superior color range and depth.
  • 90 Hz screen refresh rate provides smooth head tracking, so most people with motion sickness won't have problems.
  • The spacing between the lenses can be adjusted for individuals with interpupillary distance (IPD) outside of the average range, making it more accessible.
  • Included headphones provide good audio quality.
  • Extremely easy setup, only two cables and no tracking sensors.
  • Can be used in conjunction with SteamVR tracking solutions that support the HTC Vive wands or Valve Index controllers, providing an upgrade path if you're unsatisfied with the Windows controllers and don't want to pay for a whole new VR set.
  • Windows Mixed Reality ecosystem allows for some optimized games to be played on a much wider range of hardware. Space Pirate Trainer, for example, is supported at a 60 Hz refresh rate on an Intel HD 620 integrated graphics chip if purchased through the Windows Store.

    Neutral:

  • 110° vertical field of view.
  • Uses inside-out tracking.
  • Controllers require user-replaceable AA batteries.
  • Customer support is adequate, but the serial numbers for Windows Mixed Reality HMDs can't be registered on Samsung's website. All service requests must be handled by phone.

    Cons:

  • Only uses two forward-facing cameras for controller tracking. This can have issues when you have to reach back over your shoulders for more than two seconds.
  • Traditional low cost Ni-MH rechargeable AAs don't output a high enough voltage to consistently power the controllers. Traditional disposable AAs or more expensive Lithium rechargeable AAs are necessary.
  • Does not support finger tracking, controllers are strictly wand-style input.
  • While compatible with SteamVR, not every SteamVR title supports the Windows Mixed Reality controllers. If support isn't stated outright on the game's store page, you will very likely have to do some controller configuration tweaks.
  • No driver support for Linux users.

    Oculus Rift S - $399.00 new on Amazon.com as of 7/3/2019


    Pros:

  • Low cost of entry. This headset and controller bundle is $399.99 new at all retailers. While refurbished SKUs are scarce, they will likely be available over the next few months, and the sale price for new units will likely be discounted later in the year for seasonal sales.
  • Uses the halo mounting method, ideal for larger heads and long-term comfort.
  • Uses six cameras for controller tracking, which supports a greater range of motion than the Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
  • Supports finger tracking with Oculus Touch.
  • Oculus ecosystem support with exclusive software.
  • Extremely easy setup, only two cables and no tracking sensors.
  • Universal SteamVR controller compatibility.
  • Superior customer service experience compared to most of its competition.

    Neutral:

  • 110° vertical field of view.
  • Uses inside-out tracking.
  • Controllers feature built-in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
  • "Screen door effect" filtering isn't as good as its competition in this price bracket, though still better than most.

    Cons:

  • 1280x1440 resolution per eye is inferior to its competition in this price bracket.
  • Uses LCD panels, which provide a more flat range of color compared to OLED.
  • 80 Hz screen refresh rate is still relatively smooth, though people more sensitive to motion sickness may have problems with it.
  • The spacing between lenses cannot be adjusted, so individuals with interpupillary distance (IPD) outside of the average range will not be able to use the Rift S.
  • Included headphones provide a poor audio experience, the bass is especially weak.
  • Incompatible with other controller tracking solutions.
  • No driver support for Linux users.

    HTC Vive - $480.41 on Amazon.com as of 7/3/2019


    Pros:

  • Uses OLED panels, which provide superior color range and depth.
  • 90 Hz screen refresh rate provides smooth head tracking, so most people with motion sickness won't have problems.
  • The spacing between the lenses can be adjusted for individuals with interpupillary distance (IPD) outside of the average range, making it more accessible.
  • Universal SteamVR controller compatibility.
  • "Lighthouse" tracking provides the best range of motion for controllers out of any VR controller tracking solution currently available.
  • Can be used in conjunction with SteamVR tracking solutions that support the Valve Index controllers, providing an upgrade path if you're unsatisfied with the HTC Vive wand controllers and don't want to pay for a whole new VR set.
  • Driver support for Linux users.

    Neutral:

  • 110° vertical field of view.
  • Controllers feature built-in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.

    Cons:

  • High cost of entry. This is especially noticeable given that superior competitors have emerged at a lower cost since the HTC Vive's original release back in 2016.
  • Velcro strap-based head mounting solution is more uncomfortable than the competition.
  • 1080x1200 resolution per eye, the worst in its price bracket.
  • "Screen door effect" is very noticeable when looking at the panels for extended periods.
  • No included audio solution. You must either use your own headphones or purchase the Deluxe Audio Strap separately for $99.99 new.
  • Does not support finger tracking, controllers are strictly wand-style input.
  • More involved setup process than its competition. Six cables and a bridge must be connected between the PC and the HMD, and two Lighthouses must be plugged in and secured above head level in two different locations across a room diagonally for optimal coverage.
  • Infamously bad customer service that regularly breaks warranty law for EU customers and often charges for repairs for unrelated issues or problems that should be covered under warranty for worldwide customers.
