Oculus Rift S Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Oculus Rift S has evolutionary improvements so drastic it's going to consign the original Rift to the history books, or more likely, the bin.

If the Oculus Rift S is an evolution over what has come before it, at this point it looks set to become VR's apex predator. This is one to watch.

Oculus Rift S review: It's not wire-free but it's still marvellous

 

It's not quite 'Rift 2', but the second-gen VR headset means fewer wires, more comfort, all while removing the need for separate sensor stations. Ace!

Improved visuals ; Enhanced comfort and usability ; A simplified system that's far less hassle ; Cross-play support and plenty of content ; Room for spectacles

Still the same price as before ; Only has a 3.5mm headphone jack (not USB) for personal headset ; We had some rare motion sickness experiences

The Oculus Rift S brings some welcome enhancements to the already brilliant VR system from Oculus, making for a freer experience with fewer cables. There's plenty to enjoy with this new headset, too, with the lack of true wireless and no USB-C...

Hands on: Hands on: Oculus Rift S review

As a replacement for the aging Oculus Rift, the Rift S is a step in the right direction. It ups the resolution, drops the external trackers, simplifies the setup process, and stays capable of playing all your old games. It’s a better headset in all but...

Oculus Rift S review: A half-step in the right direction

 

Oculus' latest VR headset is a suitable successor to the original Rift, even if it does feature some maddening design choices

No external sensors required ; Refreshingly easy to use ; Not ludicrously expensive

Speakers aren't good enough ; No IPD slider

Then again, the Rift was in dire need of a refresh, and Oculus has been very careful not to name this headset the Rift 2. It’s the Oculus Rift S, and like most tech products ending in ‘S’, it’s a solid half-step in the right direction.

Oculus Rift S

 

The Oculus Rift S will be the replacement for the Oculus Rift but what exactly are the differences and could it still be worth buying a standard Oculus Rift?

Expert review by : Brad Linder (liliputing.com)

Oculus Rift S VR headset up for pre-order for $399 (ships in late May)

 

jThe is a virtual reality headset with a higher-resolution display than the original Oculus Rift, support for inside-out position tracking (so you don't need to place sensors around the room), and a more comfortable design.

The new headset works with Oculus Touch wireless motion controllers and it’s designed to connect to a PC with a relatively decent processor and NVIDIA GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 290 or better graphics.

Well made, great features, easy to use
