Review of Meta Quest 2

I’m a big believer in virtual reality and all of its possibilities. But, since since virtual reality (VR) began to gain traction in the mainstream, the issue has been raised as to when it would become a viable consumer product. The year is now, and Meta Quest 2 is the final product.

The latest version of the standalone VR headset improves or builds on the original’s features. It’s lighter, has a higher-resolution display, a faster CPU, more ergonomic controls, and more social and sharing functions, to mention a few advantages.

 The headset is more comfortable and doesn’t feel so clunky. The main issue with the original version was that the headset’s weight and bulk made it impractical to wear for extended periods of time.

The Meta Quest 2 can be worn for extended periods of time, but it is still not as comfortable as some other headsets like Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) or Oculus Go. It’s also a bit more expensive than those two headsets, which could be an issue for some consumers.

Despite its shortcomings, Meta Quest 2 is a solid product that delivers on its promise to deliver a VR experience that truly makes you feel like you’re there in the game world. It’s not a perfect product by any means, but it does deliver on its promise to deliver an immersive experience unlike any other VR headset before it.

“Meta Quest 2 is a good game. It is the pinnacle of what the original Meta Quest brought to VR, and it is a game that truly makes you feel like you are in the game world.

It’s not perfect by any means, and it does have some issues (like its bulky design and lack of social or sharing functions), but it’s a solid product that delivers on its promise to deliver an immersive experience unlike any other VR headset before it.”

“Meta Quest 2 offers the best VR experience I’ve had yet in terms of immersion. The headsets are comfortable, and they don’t feel so clunky. The headset’s weight and bulk make them impractical to wear for extended periods of time, but they’re more comfortable than other headsets like Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) or Oculus Go.”

Setup

The headset is straightforward to set up, and the software installation is simple. However, a word of caution: make sure you have at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card (or better) before you buy this headset.

Meta Quest 2 requires a powerful graphics card to run properly.The Meta Quest 2 requires a powerful graphics card to run properly.

If you don’t have one, then you’ll need to invest in one before buying this headset. It’s not too expensive and it’s definitely worth it if you’re serious about VR gaming. Without a decent graphics card, the Meta Quest 2 will be an expensive disappointment for most gamers.

What’s it like?

I haven’t used a Meta headset in a long time, but the UX has certainly improved. Your options float on a blackboard, akin to Facebook’s dark mode, and you navigate using either the controllers or your hands (more on that later).

The controllers are comfortable, and the headset is light enough for extended use. It’s still not as comfortable as the Sony PSVR or Oculus Go, but it’s far more comfortable than the original Meta, which was also pretty uncomfortable.

You can easily adjust the lenses on the Meta Quest 2 with a simple plastic lever. The Meta Quest 2 comes with two sets of lenses: clear and anti-fog.

While I personally prefer to wear glasses when I play games, I opted for anti-fog lenses because they are much less noticeable in-game: less of a strain on your eyes and better for long periods of time (which is what you’ll need if you want to play VR games for hours at a time).

I didn’t have any issues with motion sickness while playing, but it’s worth noting that this headset is designed specifically for shorter gameplay sessions: 30 minutes or less to start.

If you’re a gamer who likes to play VR games longer than 30 minutes at a time, then you should probably look elsewhere. You can read more about VR gaming and how long it lasts here .

Social

Last night, I made two new friends… well, meta virtual buddies, but it was still fun. I downloaded the beta edition of Venues, Meta’s live event platform. I walked into the lobby after creating an avatar for myself. I wasn’t expecting to see many people at 11 p.m., but to my surprise, there was a tiny gathering gathered.

I strolled over and found myself in a serious discussion on the status of virtual reality with a car salesman and a model. We discussed how effectively the facial tracking worked and how the light shimmered off one of my new friends’ bald head in various ways.

There were a few other people in the lobby, but none of them said anything. I’m not sure if it was because they didn’t know how to talk to each other or because they were trying to avoid social interaction with me. Either way, it’s an interesting experience and a fun way to meet new people.

The Meta Quest 2 is available now for $599 on preorder in the US, with a planned release date of October 2018. You can read more about the Meta Quest 2 here .

Conclusion

The Meta Quest 2 is a great VR headset that’s worth the $599 price tag. It’s more comfortable than the original, which is a huge plus. The lenses are easy to adjust and fit with glasses. I had no problems with motion sickness while playing games and the gamepad works well for those occasions when you want to play non-VR games on your mobile phone.

The only thing I don’t like about this headset is that it’s not available in Europe or Canada yet.Overall, if you’re looking for a new VR headset, then you should check out the Meta Quest 2 .
