Pros and cons

According to our VR headsets expert
  • Pros:
    With a resolution of 2,160x1,200 and a refresh rate of 90Hz, VR is just like real reality.
  • Pros:
    With a field of view of 110 degrees, you don't suffer from annoying blind spots.
  • Pros:
    The headband is adjustable, just like the distance between the eyes and the screen.
  • Con:
    This VR headset is only suitable for a powerful game PC or laptop with at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060.
Product Expert VR headsets

Get started with the Oculus Rift in one go, the way it was intended: with 2 touch controllers. This package includes the Oculus Rift VR Headset, 2 Oculus Rift Touch Controllers, and 6 free games. You also have 2 Oculus sensors that follow both the movements of the headset and the precise movements of the controller in 3D. The headset immerses you in the virtual world and the controllers ensure that you naturally seek out the interaction with the virtual objects and enemies you encounter. You 'throw' grenades, for example, with the same movement as you would in real life. This way, you forget that you have a controller in your hands and you immerse yourself in the game.

Note: The Oculus Rift requires a graphically powerful PC. Lower specifications are possible, but can cause problems with more demanding games. For an optimal Oculus Rift experience, we recommend the following minimum specifications:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 or faster
  • Video card: NVIDIA GTX 1060 or faster
  • RAM: 8GB of RAM or more
  • At least 3 free USB ports, of which at least 2 USB 3.0 ports



Included by default

  • Oculus Rift
  • Oculus Touch Controller (2x)
  • Oculus sensor (2x)
  • Batteries for the controllers
  • Wrist strap
  • Robo Recall (free VR game)
  • Lucky's Tale (free VR game)
  • Quill (free VR game)
  • Medium (free VR game)
  • Dead and Buried (free VR game)
  • Toybox (free VR game)
  • (The free games are automatically added to the Oculus Library of the first account that's connected after the installation process)

"Good product but buy it new, not used."
In the version: Basispakket + Marvel game

By Valentin GILLARDIN on 6 December 2018

  • Pros:
    Flexible in it's use. (Good cable length)
  • Pros:
    Controllers have a good battery life on simple AA batteries. (1 AA per controllers)
  • Con:
    Require a decent computer for a good playing experience.
  • Con:
    The lens have a tendency to fog up when your face starts warming up a bit.

Overall my experience has been quite enjoyable. That said the product I received (a used Oculus Rift as was stated on the product page) had an issue. But the description did not state that one of the controllers had a malfunctioning trigger. The only issue that was recognized was some scratches on one of the sensor's stand. The product is still functional.

"Expensive but worthwhile"
In the version: VR Bril + Touch Controllers

By Michelle on 7 December 2018

  • Pros:
    Easy to set up
  • Pros:
    Already comes with a few games
  • Pros:
    Has batteries included
  • Con:
    Requires 2 AA batteries in hand controllers which need to be replaced often
  • Con:
    HDMI cable has to be plugged directly into the graphics card meaning another cable has to be used for your screen if your graphics card only has one HDMI port (I had to use a DVI cable for my display)
  • Con:
    Need a pretty powerful PC to be able to run this

It’s intuitive and easy to use. Setup was fast. Gaming experience is extremely immersive and fun!

If you open the oculus rift app it turns on the headset and controllers so the battery runs out fast

It’s quite heavy on the senses and you should only play high intensity games for short periods of time otherwise you feel dizzy, lightheaded, blurry vision

Good product but buy it new, not used.
