Packaging Presentation & First Impressions: With a nice black box with images of the headset, this controller is shop ready and pretty eye-catching. Inside of the box the controller simply slides out once the side flap is open. If nothing else, this headset is well presented at least.
What is it Like To Use in VR: Despite feeling like a cheap piece of plastic (which it is) it has to be said that it works pretty well for VR apps. The slightly raised control stick is nice and textured, while not being the most responsive it does a fairly good job. The buttons are pretty easy to find, it’s not too heavy in the hand and I thought it was nice to grip and hold.

Final Verdict: Despite it’s cheap feel it works well while inside VR! I found it easy to find the buttons I wanted and it did an OK job on both feel and looks. I did find myself wanting shoulder buttons, but other than that it has what I needed and what I would expect for the price. Much like it’s namesake mobile VR headset it does a good job while remaining affordable.
