Seeing is believing
Rift uses state of the art displays and optics designed specifically for VR. Its high refresh rate and low-persistence display work together with its custom optics system to provide incredible visual fidelity and an immersive, wide field of view.
The magic of presence
Rift’s advanced display technology combined with its precise, low-latency constellation tracking system enables the sensation of presence – the feeling as though you’re actually there. The magic of presence changes everything. You’ve never experienced immersion like this.
Advanced and refined design
From the moment you pick up Rift, you’ll feel and see the attention to detail that went into its design and construction. Customizable, comfortable, adaptable, and beautiful, Rift is technology and design as remarkable as the experiences it enables.
Designed from the inside out
What you don’t see is as amazing as what you see. Rift has been designed from the inside out, and it shows. Beneath its fabric finish lies a tightly integrated set of systems that work in concert to transport you to new places.
Integrated VR Audio
Rift features an integrated VR audio system designed specifically to make you feel as though you’re truly somewhere else – giving you a sense of space and depth. The audio arms are removable so you can use your own headphones too.
A sensor designed for VR
Our sensor tracks constellations of IR LEDs to translate your movements into VR. Place the sensor in front of you and you’re all set. Its stand is ideal for most setups and its standard 1/4 20 mount works with most tripods. The constellation tracking system is designed to track you whether you’re sitting down or standing up.
One size fits you
The adjustment straps help you get a perfect fit and the sliding bars cantilever weight to minimize pressure.

The package arrived on time and was in good shape. The computer looks better than I thought it would BUT I'm still not a fan of the design. Anyway, the setup was easy. Computer seems to be running smooth. But lets be honest, this is about the Oculus rift. The setup was ROUGH for me. The first thing you have to do is install Oculus software. I kept getting Installation errors. To make things worse, I had to download the 800+mb file EVERYTIME I attempted to install the setup software. I'm not sure why you can't download the file to your hard drive. I had to go through a few forums to figure out how to get it to install. For me, it was the folder that held the temp file made by the installation. It was read only. I had to set it to read and write. I think this is ridiculous for a "bundle". They should work together. As for the rift, its still too early. But I will say I have been impressed so far. Image quality is pretty good. Text seems to be blurry. But that just may be me. Just with the LITTLE time I've had with it, I can understand why the VIVE included a camera on the front. I've bumped into my wall ALREADY! But this is 1st Gen product. There will be many changes in the future. (-1 Star is because of the installation. After I cool down and play some more games, I'll probably change it to 5 stars)
Update: I've had this for a few weeks now and give the computer a 4 and the rift a 4. I'm having wifi issues with my computer. Something i've never had issues with before. It could be windows 10 messing things up though. The Rift is solid but i can't help but feel that the VIVE is better(plus most reviews state this). The oculus store needs some more polish. It can actually be hard to find games.....and there really isn't that many! I honestly believe they are aware their company success will depend on the touch controllers. Without those controllers you really lose a lot of immersion. Hope they have a trick up their sleeve for a chaperon system. On a different note, VIVE vs RIFT isn't like Sega vs Nintendo. It seems most games will play on both systems(of course the motion controller games will not work on the RIFT yet). You can actually use SteamVR with the oculus. No secret hacking required.
Bottom line: Get the package if you are in the same situation like i was, conveniently NEEDING a computer and wanting to get into VR. Otherwise, wait until the hype settles and the new NVIDIA cards come out. Then build your own computer.
Installation problem - Same like others, won't install until I deleted McCafee.
Setup problem - After install, the Oculus app. ended up in blue screen every time right before headset recognition. After several hours, I finally gave up on this ASUS, although I know it will work if I kept trying. But hey I have a VR-ready PC laying around, so installed and played on the PC I built with no problem in under 1 hour. This ASUS will go to my workshop for reconfiguration later, for I do like the case and may use it for VIVE after revamp.
Oculus will take over the one and only HDMI port on the GTX970 graphics card - Most graphics cards come with only 1 HDMI port, including this ASUS. In order to follow the on-screen prompts during setup and sign in and play Oculus, you'll need a monitor with displayport. I normally use my 4K TV as monitor, so I bought a displayport to hdmi 4K adapter to use my Samsung TV as display. They should have used a gtx970 with 2 hdmi to make it a thoughtful bundle IMHO.
Cheap hardware - no XMP (limit the memory speed to 2133), no m.2 (cannot use the ultra speed SSD), 2 simm banks (most comes with 4, so limit the memory to 32GB max), I expect better for a $900+ PC. That's why some said it is very slow in every aspect, because it is using a spinning hard drive and 8GB of memory and leave all the power to the graphics card. I bought the cheapest bundle because I don't want to keep on waiting for the Oculus to ship until July (I have my VR-ready PC since February), so I don't expect it to be blazing fast, but I know ASUS could do better and still makes money.
Oculus itself is very well designed, you'll know why a touch controller is needed after playing it - you just can't help trying to touch the objects in your surrounding. This is not some ordinary hardware, it comes with a nice box that weight about 10 lbs, visual and sound effect provide the immersive experience. You can actually peek behind a rock to see what's there by stretching your body and turn your head, just like in real life! I really like it! If you're afraid of height, don't look down from the edge of the skyscraper. Same for all new gadgets, as an early adapter, expect in-perfection but enjoy the glimpse of the future.
ASUS gets 1 star, Oculus gets 5, so average 3.
NOTE: I saw some said there are 2 HDMI on the PC, and only 1 works. I think you tried to use both the one on the motherboard and the one on the display card, there is no way to use both. The BIOS is set to boot only one of them, and the default is from the GTX970. In fact, the most important piece of hardware to run the VR is the GTX970 and above graphics card. As this ASUS's GTX970 comes with 3 displayports, I recommend if you don't have a monitor with displayport, and you want to hook it up to a TV, then get the displayport 1.2 to HDMI 2.0a adapter on Amazon, it does 4K at 60hz, so the Oculus can use the one and only HDMI, and your TV, can display Oculus menu, in 4K or 1080p, or whatever the resolution it's capable of.
It appeared either the hard drive is too slow, or applications installed on the ASUS was causing problem -
I replaced the 8GB memory with 32GB, replaced the hard drive to a PNY 480GB SSD, did a clean install of windows 8.1, and I was able to install and run Oculus on the ASUS with no issue. (the only issue was trying to find all the drivers, ASUS website was missing the wireless pcie adapter driver (google AW-CB161H and download), the NVIDIA Geforce driver was not compatible)
The bottom line is, if you have problem getting it to work, try removing all unneeded applications first, and if still not working, get an SSD, they have gone down in price, but will triple the performance of your PC.
As for the Rift it say. What can I say? You are going to love the experience. The Rift itself is very comfortable. Nothing much to say but that the only thing missing for the perfect experience are the touch controllers but we all know those should be coming out soon enough.
