Two new VR headsets joined the spec sheet fray today; Microsoft pulled back the curtain on its first two Windows 10 headsets made by Acer and HP. While both are lower in cost than the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, they present dramatically different means of delivering immersive experiences than what we’ve seen before.
It’s getting increasingly harder to track which VR headsets off which features and for what price. Does this headset need external sensors set up in my room to run? How do I control apps and games with this device?
With these kinds of questions becoming more and more prevalent, we thought it was a good time to start assembling an easy-to-read VR spec sheet that starts to compare these headsets a little bit closer, and show you how these different devices vary, helping you pick one that’s right for you.
What we’ve got now is just a start; we’ll update the table with more features (let us know what you think we’re missing) and, of course, new headsets. Check back soon!
Correction: Previously the table above listed the single-eye resolution for Acer and HP’s headsets, but it has since been updated to include the full two-eye resolution.
