Presentation: I have to say this headset does come nicely packaged. With a shiny black box with a shimmering silver logo on the top, the box makes it feel like the premium product this is. But once the outer box is removed there really isn’t a lot here given the crazy price tag this comes with. Sure, it is neatly packaged and well protected, but there is also very little in the way of anything else. There is no pizzaz here, no polish, just the headset and a branded USB stick with some important files on it. However, there are some smaller boxes under the headset once you get exploring.

StarVR One (2020)

Description: The StarVr from Starbreeze Studios is said to have the widest field of view on any VR headset ever made, and at 210 degrees it certainly lives up to that claim. Designed to be an AAA experience for gamers, but with Sony also jumping onto the VR headset wagon Starbreeze have their work cut out for them.

With the unique FOV, it might just be the headset of choice when it comes to gamers, but that is all down to how good the games are that run on it. The software engine they have called Valhalla has some really amazing capabilities and potential, along with ultra HD could mean the difference between experiencing a video game and living it. The panoramic views (Code name Infiniteye) offered could well be compelling, unnerving and incredibly immersive.

StarVR One (2020)

Review: You would be forgiven for believing the StarVR One offers THE best VR experience so far, but sadly that is simply not the case. From the ridiculously heavy wire leading from the headset to the bugs and glitches that makes the product feel half-finished, nothing about it really feels premium. Once upon a time, that super-wide FOV might have won it some favours, but that is not the case anymore. Don’t get me wrong, when all is working well this headset offers a pretty great experience, but there is sadly nothing here to justify the current asking price.
