I honestly have never loved any system more then the PS4. The VR is also amazing! I do wish the headset had more adjustable features due that no matter how tight I make it, I usually have a small but noticable gap right at the bottom of the visor against my cheecks. The games are always amazing. I wish plus wasn't so expensive or if perphaps there was a cheaper option to go online but not get the extra things (deals on games and such). Other then that, it plays smootly, programs don't crash and I have never had any issues with it overheating even after gaming for hours.

A good budget option is to try virtual reality if you have a Samsung smartphone. There is a special application store for VR - there are games, videos, training, you can watch YouTube or video 360. The helmet is lightweight, a smartphone is inserted into it. It sits on the head comfortably. There is a control panel that can be used as a gamepad. This is made by Oculus for Samsung.

I am a middle school teacher and we use these occasionally with the google expeditions app. It is really cool to see history “come alive” in the classroom..it’s so funny to see the kiddos walking around and bumping into their desks with these gadgets on. Most importantly, they LOVE using these VR headsets.

You cannot go wrong with a Valve Index if you are looking for a top notch VR system. Obviously, this is on the pricer end of VR systems, but you get what you pay for. Incredible tracking, incredibly visuals. Honestly just VR fine right.

Love this new version of the HTC vive. We had the previous one and the controllers for the new one are definetely better and more intuitive. Just need to make it wireless!

LOVE the experience in this, the one drawback is some larger glasses may scratch the inside lens. Barely noticeable but may hurt the resell value. Great for families, couples, and even single players. Best for homes with enough room to walk around as it's very easy to accidentally walk into/hit things while in VR. Love playing Fruit Ninja in this!

During quarantine, my brother and I purchase the Oculus Quest all in one 128gb. This is by far the most entertaining device I have ever experienced. I love that I has games for all ages especially immortal Vader which is a Star Wars series with 4 episodes. When playing the games, it feels so real that at a point I landed in a boat and was trying to get off and my leg were shaking like I was going to fall and drown. This cost more since it was sold out but now there webpage has a restock and it’s $499. Worth it and everyone who uses it definitely want one for their own house.

The Oculus Go is a great introduction to the amazing world of VR. It has a decent amount of games and experiences, however the quality of games is nothing like the games on the Oculus Quest or other high end VR Headsets. Keep in mind, the "Oculus Go" is geared more towards entertainment, as apposed to gaming. It's extremely well equipped for experiencing VR, and watching VR videos and such. If you're looking for a headset that is more focused on gaming, the Oculus Quest will better suit your needs. The Oculus Go is a terrific VR Headset for the low price of only $150-$200. I definitely recommend trying it out for yourself.Oculus Go All-in-one VR

Absolutely incredible product that delivers the most immersive VR experience I have ever had. I am running an AMD Ryzen 2700x, 16GB 3000Mhz Memory, and a GTX 1080. Games like Beat Saber, Half Life: Alyx, Boneworks, Arizona Sunshine, etc run beautifully on this device. Not having external tracking sensors makes this an easy plug and play setup (after downloading the software of course). No issues with the inside out tracking system. Headset sits comfortably on the head and has a racheting knob at the back to adjust the halo band to fit your head. One big downside is the built in speakers on the headband. It sounds like a tin can when playing rhythm based games like Beat Saber. A good pair or earbuds or headphones is an absolute must have when using this device. The controllers are the same as the standalone (no PC required) Oculus Quest. It's comfortable to hold and easy to use. Personally, i opted to not use the included wrist strap and went for more of a valve index knuckle hold by 3d printing some parts that latch on the rings of the controller - it makes long gaming sessions much more comfortable.
