but it is not be treated as a consumer item, but a tool for developers and for super enthusiasts.
it takes a bit of work and computer literacy to get it to work correctly, if you don't know what a json file is then leave now, this is not a product for you, go get a rift or a vive.
The software and hardware have constant updates that are making the system work better and better, as of recent steam has added OSVR support to their store.
there is a bit of a screen door effect and text is a bit hard to read but i feel that this is mainly caused by current limitations in technology.
there is also a problem with the anniversary edition update for windows 10 that makes the IR tracker camera not correctly detect the IR LEDs/Beacons, a registry modification can fix this bug as its a problem with windows, not the tracker.
its important to remember that you are getting what you pay for!
for those of you who do get this product and experience setup problems head over to [...]
this is where i got most of my issues fixed.
The resolution is not nearly as good as I expected. Imaging looking a one of those giant SD CRT TV's from the 90's. You are basically buying one of those that is all round you. Impressive by nature, but very underwhelming compared to what I know the future holds.
Hey amazon! I paid 329$ a few days ago and now it is 300$, can i have 29 dollars?
Amazon let me return it for about $10 dollars, basically got to rent it for a month. Had i damaged or worn it out, would have been charged more I am sure.
My Specs: GTX 1070 and Intel 6600. I'm using a Logitech 310 controller and it works with the Steam and Oculus games that I tried.
First Impressions: Seems pretty solid, comes with all equipment you need (except the computer, of course). There is a little guide included on how to connect all the wires. As for ports, you need 1 HDMI and 2 USB (and I think one of them needs to be 3.0).
At first, I installed everything manually (took 2 hours), but later went back and used their all in one installer (took 2 minutes) (at developer.osvr.org click on OSVR Installer (Beta)) which includes a tray icon that you right click for settings, etc. Make sure you go to "configure" and "configure for HDK 2.0". Next go to "configure" "launch CPI" "SW Utilities" and "disable direct mode"
A good guide on how to set everything up is a reddit post titled "HDK2 Quick Setup Guide & Troubleshoot Help"
As another commenter said, "RTPC Mod Life" makes useful videos for setting up different VR systems.
To run SteamVR, start the OSVR server (through the tray icon) open Steam and download SteamVR (if needed).
NOTE: You need the Vive controllers for some SteamVR games, and since I do not have them I was unable to play those games.
For Oculus games you have to install Oculus Home, make an account, and install Revive (full instructions at https://github.com/LibreVR/Revive). I got both "Introduction to VR" and "Lucky's Tale" working (the only two games I have tried so far). Sometimes you have to restart Oculus Home or your computer after downloading the games.
Here is how Oculus games run on the OSVR. You have the OSVR server running, you run SteamVR on top of that, and you run Revive and Oculus Home on top of that. When it all works, you run the Oculus games through Steam, but download them through Oculus Home.
If the Steam menu won't do away when your running an Oculus game, you have to goto "power" and "exit".

At the time of me writing this review the price is $456 this is a bad price. Just a few days ago I bought this for $350. At this price you come out better buying from Razer.
This is a great heatset but NOT FOR OVER $400!! At this price just get the oculus rift with motion controlers. I haven't tried this out but its one thing I wish the hdk2 had.
All of my previous concerns and problems have been fixed with a new installer.
