Virtual reality is often cited as the next big thing in consumer technology, yet the concept seems outlandish and millions of us have absolutely no experience with VR devices, making it difficult to know exactly where to get started.

HTC Vive Virtual Reality Headset, with 2 Wireless Controllers + Movement Sensors is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Absolutely love this! Only set it up to try it out then packed it away again for Christmas so not fully got to grips with it yet. It took a while to get it set up correctly through the PC and help/instructions are not great but got there in the end. The kids and I love it and I had to prize it off them to put it away but be warned it is a real time sucker, you can be on it for hours without realising. The controllers and head set seem well made and robust. You need quite few plugs for all the peripherals and a relatively large open area to use it properly, though you can limit the size of the playing area to suit your room. Can't wait until Christmas to give it a proper go but I think there maybe a few arguments with the kids on who's turn it is!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Annoyed by the Black Monday deal Very good product though a pig to set up if you dont follow the instructions PRECISELY then its good luck. The install software is rubbish so you end up downloading various bits from the website and spending ages on the forums trying to find fixes for the various problems. Finally sorted and now working fine. As an aside. Was contemplating buring the audio add on strap until i saw the Black monday deal which comes with it for the same price which i paid not 1 month ago.... and you get Doom VR thrown in as well GRRRRR Wont be bothering with that until the price comes WAY down from the £100 it is now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the most insane fun ever Amazing bit of kit, playing single player and online with friends is insanely fun. 100% you need to try this or Oculus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible, must be tried to be appreciated I always thought VR was just a FAD until I got to experience it at EGX in Birmingham. I tried out both the Rift and Vive and it was so awesome that I bought my own Vive just two weeks later. It's definitely one of those things that has to be experienced before you realise how incredible it is, so if you have a video game bar near by, or a friend who owns one, try and organise a VR session where you can experience it. One major benefit of getting a Vive is the openess of both the Steam VR platform and the Vive hardware. There are already next generation headsets being developed that will work with your existing Vive sensors and controllers so as an investment it's a no brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you've got the PC to buy one, do get one! VR sceptics should really get a chance to try out a Vive as many of us believers really see the future potential of certain genres. As someone that's used a HTC Vive on and off for around a year; I definitely wouldn't call VR a gimmick as some people are so inclined to believe. certain game types such as simulation, first person shooters and RPGs, additionally table-top games just make more sense in VR and work better than on your computer screen. Whilst a big handful of the current "indie" selection of games is great, more developers need to get onboard since despite being out for over a year it still feels like a relatively new platform. Now owning one here are some commonly asked questions I feel like I can accurately answer: Is VR the future for ALL games? No definitely not. Games such as World of Warcraft and most third person games seem to be a bad fit for VR and wouldn't immerse the player. I'd love to be proven wrong in the future! Is the purchase price worth it? Mostly, I definitely don't regret buying one. What VR needs more than ever currently are some solid AAA titles. If your hardware isn't up to scratch and would also need to spend £350 on a capable graphics card, then I'd skip the Vive for the time being. Once some decent big titles land then I'd say it will be totally worth upgrading your gear! What games should I avoid? Anything which isn't designed for VR. Games need to be made specifically for the Vive and not lazily ported over. You're not going to want to play your regular 2D games in theatre mode since the Vive's resolution is a bit too low and most people's screens are of higher DPI. The exception to these are simulators and game such as Elite Dangerous which work wonderfully in VR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Very pleased with the HTC Vive very easy to set up took me 10 minutes from start to playing my first VR game. The only complaint with this, is when i did start playing had to stop because the hand controllers was dead and needed charging up, which takes about an hour.

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
HDMI only. The Vive comes with a small box with it's own power outlet that connects USB, Audio and HDMI in.

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
I would say that there's no way that'll be capable. It's a card that's several generations old now and it wasn't even top-spec at the time. However, to be certain, download and run the Steam VR Performance Test and it'll let you know where you stand. If the rest of your computer is up to scratch and you can afford to buy the Vive, I'd definitely suggest you get yourself a more modern and much more powerful GPU first.

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.
