If it was a Samsung HMD for that price this might be a steal, but not for these.

I have the Acer one and it's pretty damn good. I also have a Vive.

Screen door meaning you can see the pixels?

sorta. google "screen door effect". its being able to see the lines in between pixel, similar to if you were looking outside through a screen door. Even monitors can suffer from this but some people may be more sensitive to it than others.

Yup. Don't bother with these. The Samsung has better screens. I can barely notice the screen door on that. But these lower ones and the vive I can definitely tell. I have the Odyssey and am happy.. waiting on vive pro. Downside of Odyssey is that it's cables are too short.. it's sensitive to extensions too. Best used seated

What IS the Screen-Door Effect (SDE)?

Put simply, the Screen-Door Effect describes how visible the gaps between individual pixels appear to be when viewing a display at a close proximity. At regular TV viewing distances, SDE isn’t a concern at all. Most of the discussion comes down to image resolution, or how many pixels can fit on the display in total. This is why 720p, 1080p, 1440p and 4k are prominent terms in our everyday vocabulary now.

ya the Odyssey is really nice, i like it better than the vive after using both. tracking on the vive is better but since I'm using these for 3d visualization projects that's not an issue for me.

Well that, as you said, would definitely defeat the purpose of a VR headset, in regards to believable immersion.

SDE is very low, you don't really notice it except if you're standing still looking for it.
