Comparison of Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift S and HP Reverb
Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift S and HP Reverb are slated to be the hottest headsets of the summer. But which one should you get if you want to experience the latest in virtual reality technology? Here is a quick review of all three.
This headset is totally wireless. The only tether for this thing is the cord that you will use to charge it! It comes fully ready to use out of the package. You don’t have to load it up or sync it to any other device. It has options to make it more comfortable to wear and easy to use, comfortable controllers. When you use Oculus Quest, you’ll be connecting to a pre-existing network of apps and games made for the device. You can pretty much just open the box and start playing, which is what a lot of people like about it. Quest costs $400.
Oculus Rift S
Oculus Rift was basically the first consumer VR headset that was put out on the market. Now they are improving it with this upgraded version. The headset now has a tracking system on the actual device. You will no longer need external cameras to make your VR experience complete. The display is also better which will make the overall experience better. This headset does need to connect to a PC in order to work, so keep that in mind. This device can play games from Steam or the Oculus store. This device also costs $400.
HP Reverb runs on the Windows Mixed Reality platform and like Oculus Rift S it can also play games from Steam. Also similar to Oculus Rift S the tracking is now on board, eliminating the need for external tracking devices. Unlike the Rift S, this headset is geared more towards professional environments, though you’ll be able to buy it for yourself as well. However, the prices are different. It’s reported that the consumer version will be $600 and the enterprise version will be $650.
