At this price, and NO F*CKING CHARGING BRICK??!!! It's a f*cking joke at this point, man
Thank you! I was about to buy this. Now I need to reconsider! :)
Even if it was faultless the standalone side cannot compete with metas libary since i dislike meta but are too invested in the quest products to escape
Do these companies even use their products on different faces. Both Meta and HTC are like it’s sooooo comfortable on these high end headsets. Seems like they have ONE person to mold the headset and think that everyone has the same head 😂. Ridiculous
XXtKFsGdPJY&t=4m38s 4:38 no 3.5mm jack, thats a hard no from me. I need my decent bass audio in time for them rhythms.
Nice VR, but I need full FOV 200'
You continue to be the shining light of "saying it as it is". Thanks for the video!
The blonde in the video with the face mask wasn't even wearing her mask right, lol. She had the mask under instead of over her nose.
Ouch. That’s really disappointing. I’m not a fan of the data harvesting done by Meta and Bytedance, so I’m not going to be in the market for headsets from either manufacturer anytime soon. I think if Valve releases a solid standalone system, that could be a game changer. Apple is in its own walled-garden and while a headset from them is exciting, I don’t see it being as accessible to everyone. Thanks Mike!
I dislike battery packs in the back 😒
I almost turned off this review after "is tgis the best pcvr headset". I thought the vive xr was standalone. I want pure standalone impressions. It's own store apps, it's own software options. How well & varied it's own htc apps are and perform. As a pure htc software app headset: how does it hold up.
The safety concern over dioplers are 1 thing I've been worried about from the beginning. I can't see any eye doctor recommend using these. I'm kind of glad i canceled my ordered.
It's true that many are cheering on HTC to be an alternative to the anti-privacy company that is meta. Selling data, etc. People are ready to find a good alternative and willing to try htc as a more safe alternative to Meta, but it seems to be highly disappointing so far. Such a shame!
I thought HTC would be more supportive to PCVR, but not charging with a link cable is an absolute deal breaker. Looks like I'll stick to the quest 2 till Valve decides to release something
So far this is absolute garbage. The eye cushion will not stay in place for me no matter how hard I try to snap it down. The headset only connected once to Steam VR for me and ever since it updated to Business Streaming Hub it has never been able to connect. This was over a USB-C wired connection to the PC.
Currently the headset is in a frozen bootup loop with the Vive logo spinning and spinning even though I hear environment audio in the background. I tried factory resetting it to no avail and removing/adding it back to the app on my phone, also to no avail. This coupled with the fact that it lets so much light in due to the poor design. Forget about wearing it cordless like sunglasses. It will never stay in place correctly while keeping outside light out. This was not ready for primetime.
Honestly I feel like HTC did not even test the headset for comfort or if they did they only tested with people with very small heads.
I also did not like the incredibly small sweet spot to get a clear picture. For me it had to be dead center other wise it was a blurry mess.
This headset had so much potential but completly failed. I feel like should have released a few prototypes to vr reviewers like yourself, Bradly, or Tyriel. That way they could have gotten feedback and would have realized that the headset was to small and uncomfortable
So, fuck the HTC Vive XR Elite. Lets buy a Quest 3 for half the price or maybe a pimax portal at this point.
I pass on this one.ty for the informative video. Much appreciated
I was so excited when this headset was announced. It's a shame that it flopped. The game library is my biggest disappointment
XXtKFsGdPJY&t=9m15s 9:15 Yeah about that... Lookin at you "Meta"
That bigscreen beyond headset looks like it was made by a 5 year old.
