I picked this up for around $230 and at that price I think it's a great product. It is FAR from perfect, but I do not regret purchasing it.
Minimal setup (until you use it for SteamVR). There's only the headset and the controllers. The headset has one cable that splits into HDMI and USB 3, which plug into your computer. That's it.
Ample room for glasses. It looks like some other people may have had some problems here, but I've worn this with two different pairs of glasses and haven't had any issues. The lenses do not bump against the headset and I honestly forget I'm even wearing the glasses after awhile.
Room-scale tracking. The headset does a good job tracking your position despite the minimal amount of hardware.
Decent resolution. I owned an Oculus DK1 and the screen door effect (i.e. the world sometimes looks like you're looking at it through a screen door) has come a long way since them. I can read text without many problems, though the farther off-center the text is in my view, the more blurry it becomes.
Good game support. I've played Superhot VR, Rec Room, and Fallout 4 VR without issues so far on my GTX 970. The thumbsticks on the Mixed Reality controllers don't work out-of-the-box with Vive games, but there are solutions for that. I think support here will continue to get better once the Mixed Reality Headsets have been out longer.
Misleading name. This headset is a VR headset. "Mixed Reality" makes it sound like it may be augmented reality, but that's not the case for these headsets. The cameras on the front of the headset are infrared and are used to track your position and the location of the motion controllers. This also means the controller tracking tends to break when the controllers go out of view of the headset. Note that the controllers don't have to be visible to you, just to the headset, so in most instances this isn't a problem.
Software-only IPD settings. IPD is the distance between your pupils (I believe). You can configure this in Window's settings, but there is no hardware adjustment like other headsets have. In my opinion, changing the IPD is most noticeable for objects close to your face; the changes are difficult to notice when looking at objects farther away. This also means the IPD adjustment isn't as big of a deal until you get too close to an object.
Use with SteamVR can be a hassle. When you put the headset on, it opens up Cliff House, a virtual room from which you can launch your Mixed Reality apps. Cliff House eats up VRAM, however, so when launching games from Steam VR you may notice the framerate gets choppy due to the graphics card running out of VRAM. You can bypass this issue by launching SteamVR directly. The Cliff House will still load in the background, but the textures will not load and so you will have more VRAM available. SteamVR will use the room settings (i.e. how far the floor is from the headset and where the walls are) from the last time you opened Cliff House.
Controllers have some buttons that can't be remapped yet. It's really annoying to accidentally push the Windows buttons on the controllers because it opens up Cliff House. If you've skipped Cliff House to save VRAM as I mentioned above, the Cliff House will be loaded anyway and fill up that VRAM.
No built-in audio. Wearing headphones over the headset is comfortable for me, but getting them on and off while wearing the headset can be a bit annoying.
-IPD adjustment is done through software, the limit in the menu is 67, but you can increase it byond that by modifying a registry setting with diminishing returns.
-My IPD is about 70, and it is noticably blurry even with the IPD setting in the menu maxed out, but I can mitigate the blurriness a lot by increasing the IPD to 75 in the registry and wearing glasses under the headset (I have glasses for distance not close up so I dont know why they help here), and carefully shifting it around on my head, but its still not perfect.
-if your GPU only has 1 hdmi port which is used by your monitor, get an adapter for one of the other ports to use your screen with it, and let the headset have the hdmi port. plugging the headset into the hdmi adapter did not work for me, had to be the other way around.
BEST VR SET for the price!!! (Paid $225 at the time of purchase) If you know your Windows 10 can run Steam VR or Mixed Reality, this is a great VR set to get!!!
This is an amazing Mixed Reality set!!! You have to have a fairly modern PC in order to take advantage of this set.
Do your research. You need HDMI port with a decent video card (not integrated intel card for example) and USB 3.0 as well as Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless motion controller hookup. Most negative comments about this VR set comes from people who ordered it for their 4 year old PCs and are surprised they don't work correctly.
The setup is fairly easy. When you connect your headset to the HDMI and USB 3.0 ports, in Windows 10, a Mixed Reality portal should turn on. It will guide you through the rest of the process.
