So I got a Vive on Friday ($100 off Prime Day sale), and it is pretty bonkers. First it is incredibly difficult to set up. I am a fairly tech savvy guy, I built the PC I am plugging it into, I am the go to tech guy at my office, etc. But the instructions do not tell you where all the cables go, there is like 5 ports on the back of the base stations, but nothing tells you that you only need to plug in power. This is quite annoying as you need to plug everything in to the base stations before you mount them. The hub is the same way, although it is easier to access. Sure, there is a hdmi, power and USB, but what the hell is the mini USB port for? It isnt needed apparently but like the base stations, there is no guide or video that tells you how to set them up. Finally, played around with it just a bit. Holy hell, so far the most impressive thing is the set up zen room, it is amazing. Played a couple of games briefly, but it is the weekend so I am drunk and that does not work well with VR. So far, my opinion is that VR is next level. It is simply amazing. But it is no where close to mainstream. When I have to struggle with setup and configuration, there is no way that your typical user is going to this. When you add the $700 or $800 on top of a $1,500 PC, it is also out of reach for most. Especially when you realize that the VR experience is amazeballs but really only for 30 mins or so at a time.
