What customers say about "Key Specs"
Oculus Rift S PC-Powered VR Gaming Headset
  • Responsiveness is great and much better than single or dual sensor tracking of old. There is no break in the motion when a sensor loses sight of the headset.
  • The inside out tracking works good if you never experienced the tower version. If I hold still in a game I can notice that this thing is constantly trying to calculate tracking.
  • The tracking works very well, display is crisp, and its by far the best bang for your VR buck at the moment.
  • The controllers are likewise a slight step up from the previous generation and very easy to adapt.
  • The oculus rift S controllers that you HAVE to use for this device feel much more plastic-y and rough.
  • The oculus rift S controllers that you HAVE to use for this device feel much more plastic-y and rough. And because it’s a cheaper build quality, I can see these breaking a lot more frequently.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Oculus Rift + Touch Virtual Reality System
  • Other users have the same problem and have even ordered custom fitted prescription lenses to fit inside the device.
  • It doesn't fit very well around my nose and allows a fair amount of light through. I would test out several before choosing one.
Oculus Rift S PC-Powered VR Gaming Headset
  • Rift s is heavy but doesn't seem that bad because the weight is evenly distributed. The foam all around is very soft and springy.
  • Rift s offer the new fit which is miles more comfortable and the weight is much more well balanced.
  • The build quality on the rift S is solid, the controllers, light weight and so far, work pretty well.
  • I found the weight on my head to be perfectly acceptable, and the graphics are quite nice and clear.
  • The controllers are a little bit smaller than the original rift controller as you can see on the image. It does not give you any finger room. For people with big hand this might be a negative.

What customers say about "Features"
Oculus Rift + Touch Virtual Reality System
  • The Oculus Rift and the Touch controllers are amazing!
Oculus Rift S PC-Powered VR Gaming Headset
  • Halo headband. It’s easier to adjust. It's hard to clean after use, but can be replaced.
  • The headband is completely redesigned and much more comfortable. Very easy now to swap between a few people, without fussing with 3 straps.
  • The headband and face mask are more comfortable and the headset is overall easier to put on.
  • Slightly less comfortable initially, slightly more difficult to find a comfortable setting with the headband and strap.
  • Screen contrast is poor. Blacks are washed out. Highs aren't very high. The overall range looks to be very limited. It looks like you're wearing a very dark pair of sunglasses.
