How to Choose a VR Headset

With so many models to choose from, it’s not easy to make a decision. Fortunately, it’s all pretty easy to understand once you know what to look for.

Most VR goggles rely on your smartphone for processing power and the screen. These are a good way to get your feet wet but they only touch the surface of what’s possible. Some models like the Oculus and Vive offer screen’s with top notch quality.

You also need to look at the compatibility of the VR goggles. Many high-end headsets require you to connect them to a PC or a playstation for processing. If this is the case, make sure that you have a computer with the required specs. You can even purchase VR ready laptops.

The HTC Vive is the best consumer VR headset that you can buy right now. It offers a crazy resolution of 615 pixels per square inch (PPI). For comparison, Apple’s newest phone only has a PPI of 458. This headset is mindbogglingly realistic and it will give you a taste of the future before everyone else.

VR is still an emerging technology but that’s the point. It’s amazing experience it before everyone else. Cyber Monday is your last chance to do so while saving money.
