OSVR HDK 1.4 (2015)


Presentation: To be honest you really don’t get a lot in terms of the presentation of this headset. The box it comes in is neatly packed I suppose, but it is also boring and brown with none of the quality you get with many other VR headsets. The packaging does do what it needs to do I suppose and it is supposed to be a budget VR headset.

Review: While you should be execting this it has to be said that this is a raw headset. It doesn’t have the shine and polish you get with an Oculus Rift nor does it have the stats, but for a bedroom developer, it should do all they need it to do. OK, so headsets like the Quest have put developer headsets like this to sleep, but it still has a place in the hearts of many people including my own.
