If I do end up picking up a Quest 2 in the future, I think ill go with a 64gb model. Another reason for my return is the fact that my wife made me spend 1k on a puppy Neutral Face
Puppy > Quest 2.0 any day!
Enjoy your new fur child!!!!!

If I had VD, streaming would be the least of my concerns.

Will Bestbuy take it back even if it's opened ? Was excited for this as I own the Quest and love it but the Quest 2 is definitely a down grade with the new IDP settings and the one screen instead of a screen per eye like the original Quest I can't handle being able to see the black sides definitely tunnel vision. Very disappointing I only hope they make a Pro version or something that brings back the stuff they skipped out on to cut the cost

Highlighting again, if you think you can just make another Facebook account for privacy reasons... Not to mention it usually doesn't help anyways.

I've heard very positive things about this V2 unit.

Make sure to get the staple games / apps (Beat Saber is #1 in my mind). Others include Super Hot (If that's your jam), VR Chat (free), Prime Video / Netflix (For the "movie theatre" experience).
Half Life Alyx is a big one too! You'll need to get a cord and use a PC for that one though (Through Steam).

Careful not to smash the wall ;) Always cord the controllers to your wrists! And have fun!
thanks
Got it yesterday.
Going to open it today.
I have a very old macbook (2012) so no steam/half life for me sadly.
But I'll start with beat saber and I watched a brief video on Netflix VR it looked great!
I have plex and I read theres showtime or moviebox? I forget the name. I'm sure I'll find it.
But anyhow, I can set that up to stream my local plex too!
Sounds like a few good uses.

Btw. If anyone has a broken set where only the right eye works, I would be willing to make an offer. I just cannot bring myself to pay full price, when I only need half the display.

He doesn't look big next to my old timer, but that 10 week old weighs 30lbs.

This will bring you much more satisfaction and happiness than a VR headset.

Cancelled my Quest 2 order after seeing doggo pics. Made me realize once again that true happiness cannot be found in materialistic things.

really? I just tried and the image is terrible for me. The room (couch, tv, window, etc) looks sharp, but the actual video is trash
did it look crisp to you?
