Hi everyone,

Looking to walk into the world of VR, and I'm looking for some opinions. Preferably from people who have used either headset.

The specs on both are nearly identical, however, from what I've read the Rift Touch controllers are far better than the Vive's, but the Rift needs an additional Sensor for room tracking. Also, the Vive sensors are wireless aside from wall plug. The Rift w/ additional sensor is $900 CDN and the Vive is $1100 CDN.

Which is better, and why?

I read that, among others. Was more looking for end user feed back from multiple people. Regardless, I ordered the HTC Vive.

I got a little too excited on that Buy button lol, but I'm sure I won't regret it
