HTC Vive Virtual Reality Headset, with 2 Wireless Controllers + Movement Sensors. The Ultimate VR Gaming Experience. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting Future Bought this but didn't get a good game bundle with this however steam provided great free games to play until the steam winter sale where a bought a few games. Now that I have some good games that can get pretty intense the Vive is showing why it is beating the Oculus. There are a few things that are a nuisance like the setting up etc but when it gets going it gets real!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This product is great as an introduction to full VR with standing / sitting and full room (you can walk around) features. The product works very well with my PC which is powerful enough for VR. Though VR can be relatively expensive, I consider this product very good value for money especially as it comes with controllers and sensors - apart from the required PC this is a 'full' VR kit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from can not get it to work!!! Bought this as a Christmas present for our sons. Despite following all instructions over and over can not get it to work. E-mailed vive a couple of times but never got an answer. Tried following advice on google where other people have wrote in with the same problem but still nothing. Tried a couple of computer savvy friends - they couldn't help so ended up paying a computer expert to set it up but still not working, all we get is a message saying ' headset not detected'. Costly Christmas present which has caused us nothing but hassle, a lot of wasted time and two unhappy teenagers, wish we had never bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! Most competitive deal for the vive out there! The vive is incredible, if you think about the cost as a day rate, my partner has used it every day since i bought it as a present for him... as we both love gaming we will use this almost every day of the year and given the sheer volume of games available on steam would imagine we will get use of the vive for at least the next 5 years.. meaning the cost equates probably to around 30p a day... we love it! Scan was super efficient, i bought this for christmas and could have had it delivered next day (I opted to change it for the following week as i wanted to be at home ready to disguise it and wrap it) this service cost me nothing extra, i recieved plenty of communication to say it was on its way and it really was delivered on time. I would certainly use scan again. The free games supplied with the vive package through scan are awesome and if you download google earth it is a great way to showcase the vive to every member of your family, young or old (even our nan and grandads now want one!)... Excellent price, excellent company to purchase from and excellent service... Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freaking AWESOME! Fully immersed good games, im not picky about the wires and weight of the headset, it all becomes irrelevent when a zombies biting your face off! but the games are a **touch* buggy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for development fell in love The Vive DOES NOT NEED A TON OF SPACE... *coughs* sorry so I have a room setup that has 2.1x2.2 meters space and everything plays fine! The vive HAS roomscale but it's not necessary!!! It's and expensive kit, but it is magical. There might not be any killer games for it just yet, but there are loads of stuff to try (I'm actually working on a game myself), like Recroom which is a social game with loads of activities in it. Call of the starseed is an amazing exploration adventure game even if it's short it worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting gaming tech has arrived at last! Amazing product, although a tad pricey at the moment. May reduce as they sell more. Anyone willing to be an early adopter can be sure of a huge wow factor. If this early gen VR is anything to go by then the future is going to be jaw dropping. Sadly you need a beefy PC moment (Nvidia 1060+). Many games could be seen as glorified tech demos but this is to be expected as this is very much new tech. Will be incredible when AAA full blown titles arrive. Although there are some fun titles on 'Steam' at the moment. VR versions of Fallout 4 and Skyrim are coming soon and I simply cannot wait for that. Visual are so immersive with full 3D effect. Some movie apps for the Vive allow 3D movies played in a virtual cinema setting. My only gripe is 'teleporting' movement in many titles. I much prefer proper locomotion. Can leave some people dizzy or suffer from motion sickness. But, as you use more, will get used to it and will become more natural. Highly recommended and will be great for education as well as games/experiences. Delivered very speedily by Scan and highly recommend there service. Was dispatched 30mins after ordering. Thanks guys! AA+

Questions & Answers

What GPU output is required for HTC Vive

I recently read that the Vive could be connected to a display port out as well as HDMI. Is this purely by use of an adapter or does the Vive come with both a HDMI and display port connector?
Asked by: BrotherXander
The Vive comes with a HDMI cable however there is an alternate mini-display port (can use a display port to mini display port converter) which can be used but there is no cable included.

Is my GPU ok or do I need to upgrade?

I have a XFX R7870 black edition GPU, is this good enough to run VR or do I need to upgrade it? Many thanks.
Asked by: SavageXJR
HTC recommend a gtx970 or Radeon r290 minimum and the rx7870 has lower specifications so you will likely need to upgrade. You also need to consider other PC specifications and should check the HTC Vive website for recommended. SCAN carry a large range of products that could help with upgrade (I'm not an employee - just a happy customer!)

Is there a demo unit in store for people to try?

Its a lot of money to spend for something new and relatively untested. I was wondering if Scan has a demo unit people can try before they decide to buy.
Asked by: Fenlander
There was a demo unit set up when i first went to the store, then it was gone, then it was back. I would phone the store and ask them.
