I experienced a bit of motion sickness after trying the VIve and the Samsung for about half an hour at the Microsoft store today so I'm hesitant to get this now. I have to admit it was immersive and fun though.

Did MS have any thing good to say.... I'm wondering if I should cancel and reorder from oculus..... my only concern is MS is easier for returns....

MS said to return the package when it arrives. I just ordered on Oculus... now I see that on Oculus.com you don't get the Xbox controller or windows controller adaptor... hmmmm... oh well, guess I have two of them.

It would appear that you are correct! My apologies! Not sure Why I thought it did... hmmm... maybe it was the YouTube reviews of a different bundle I watched.

You're new. You can train your brain to get used to it over time. It's simulator sickness/space sickness. It goes away.

I tried Lenovo VR at Microsoft store WEM today and they said I can buy and return within 30 days if I don't like it. I wonder if they do that to all VR headsets sold there because that's generous!

I wasn't aware of that.

Being a wearable device, that does seem somewhat odd that they'd accept an open return.....better double-check your invoice regarding the Terms & Conditions just to be safe.

I bot one on Wednesday, but it's still sealed in the box as I read and watch more reviews before opening it.

One thing I wasn't aware of at the time was that it requires a Bluetooth 4.0 connection for the controllers.

I didn't discover that until I ran the pre-check app on my PC, everything else received a passing mark.

It only had a BT 3.0 dongle, so I've ordered an $11 BT 4.0 one from Amazon and it'll be here sometime today.

Luckily just yesterday a reviewer on YouTube did a test using the Lenovo HMD with some racing sims, and he said it worked well....which is GREAT because that is one of my main reasons for buying one.

Here's his channel, and he covers a lot of tests & reviews with this particular Lenovo MHD.
