VRHero 5K Plus (2018)

VRHero 5K Plus

Presentation: To be fair the ‘VRHero 5K Plus’ certainly gives off a very premium vibe with its clean, almost Apple-inspired white outer box even if the headset itself looks as if it fell out of the 80’s. Once inside the main box case you are looking at high-quality packaging foam and several boxes with all your paperwork in and leads. This is a headset that is treated with respect and the price tag certainly demands it.

Description: The VRHero 5K Plus features double Quad HD OLED displays, each with resolution and pixel density higher than the new iPhone X Super Retina display. The 5K resolution and full 24bit RGB colors, together with the custom-built optics and 170 degrees FOV, give the VRHero 5K Plus, according to analysts, a true-to-life image in VR.

VRHero 5K Plus

Review: The VRHero 5K Plus was supposed to be an upgraded version of the VRHero 5K but to be honest it really wasn’t much of an upgrade past the slight increase in resolution. I am sure there will be some enterprise out there that might have a use for this, but there really isn’t anything here worth upgrading to if you own the original headset. Don’t get me wrong, it is a high-spec headset for sure, but the price tag really doesn’t match the tech used.
