Buying a VR headset is like purchasing a gaming console like the Playstation or XBox. It’s easy to get lost in the forest of options, and the woods are getting thick as more manufacturers come out with new models. I did hours of research and had narrowed it down to two headsets, the Oculus Quest and the Oculus Rift S.
The Quest is a standalone device that is powered by cell phone technology. It requires wireless internet, but it doesn’t have to be plugged into a computer. The Rift S requires a computer but has slightly better graphics, sound, and (at the time) offered a broader variety of games. They are also, roughly, the same price. I was initially torn on which one to get but it didn’t matter because they were sold out everywhere.
