I’ll keep this short and sweet: The Oculus Quest is a truly astounding VR headset — inexpensive, completely wireless and compatible with a large selection of games, both in standalone mode and with even more titles when you plug it into a computer with a USB cable. The Quest 2 isn’t just selling like hotcakes, it has outsold all other Oculus headsets combined. Even so, the original Oculus Quest, which first sold for $400, is still a great headset and isn’t even two full years old yet. Right now, you can get the original Oculus Quest for $199 — an incredible price to find out what all the fuss is about.
The headset is manufacturer refurbished, sold by Oculus. It comes with a 30-day return policy and 6-month warranty. I could gush about this product — both the newer $299 Quest 2 as well as the almost-as-awesome first generation model being sold here. But don’t take it from me — check out CNET’s review of the Quest, in which reviewer Scott Stein said, “Facebook’s newest VR headset is the best thing I’ve tried this year.”
If you’re interested, don’t procrastinate. They’re going fast and will almost certainly be sold out quickly.
