Wouldn't you get dinged for taxes at the border?

I received mine, direct from Oculus about 3 weeks ago. No taxes or duties. Suppose I got lucky the day I decided to buy one as I know stock has been intermittent.

Does that mean factories in China are open now ?
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

Just a minor FYI, of what can go wrong with ordering it directly, not that you can do much about it. I ordered a 128GB one for a friend this way last month. It got sent back to the sender en route for "hazardous materials", which I presume was Canada's way of saying they didn't properly label the box as having a lithium battery in it. I talked to customer service and all they could offer was that it'd get refunded eventually. I couldn't reorder because it was sold out by the time I realized what had happened.

I still recommend ordering it this way for the tax savings - just keep an eye on the tracking details so you can act by reordering before it goes out of stock if it happens to you.

So just a question here. I know the Oculus quest is a standalone vr headset that relies off its own hardware for performance but are you able to bypass the hardware and "stream" off your pc? (use PC hardware) using a cable? I heard this wasn't the case that's why I was considering the oculus rift s

No, they handle that at their end. I've bought Rift, extra sensor, Go, Quest, Quest case, earbuds and all were tax / duty-free. Saving the HST is always great.

Yes, with a USB 3.0 cable it should work with your PC, the one in the box is only 2.0 for charging. Search Quest cable on Amazon there's some 10ft ones.

Yes you can do exactly this. The feature is called "Oculus quest link" and it was added (for free) after the headset was released. Steam and the full rift store all recognize the headset flawlessly... and yes, almost every game, including Half Life Alyx works. You do need to get a good, preferably "approved" USB cable to ensure it works well.

And even better, there is Virtual Desktop that requires no cables at all... :)

You need a good quality, high throughput wifi network though.

I've yet to find someone who didn't like it =) But I found this on reddit:
Hey there,
You can request a refund for your hardware anytime with 30 days of of receiving your Quest. Keep in mind the following:
* We’ll issue a refund for Oculus devices returned within 30 days from when your order shipped.
* You’ll receive a refund to your payment method once your Oculus device has been returned and inspected.
* Shipping fees are non-refundable
You will need to open a ticket with our support, and then send us the unit serial number, Order number, and a picture of your shipping label.
Also, when it comes to apps purchased from the Oculus store: you have a 2 hours of play / 2 weeks of ownership refund policy. So it takes away the risk/fear of buying something that you think you'll like only to find it not your thing.

If anybody owns a quest, id recommend getting the app wander, especially during these times

It's basically google street view in VR so you can visit famous landmarks or random locations around the world, good way to help feel being outside while being quarantined

I’m new to this, but looking at both, not sure why one would buy the S. The quest seems to have the best of both worlds.
