A Comprehensive Review Of 2019 And 2020 VR Headsets

Though we will also be looking at one VIVE headset, Oculus rules the road when it comes to standalone VR headsets. They weren’t actually the first to market (here’s lookin’ at you, Pico Goblin[4]) but they definitely do the best job.

Oculus has a number of standalone models. We’ll be looking at the Quest and the Go. If you want a quicker comparison, Oculus prepared this one[5] themselves.

Oculus Go

The Oculus Go[6] comes in at just $200, making it easily the most affordable wireless VR headset out there. It can do what it does very well but it doesn’t do as much as other headsets. It’s mainly for 3D videos and other basic applications.

Oculus Quest

If you want to do more than that – without hooking to a PC – you’ll need the Oculus Quest[7]. The Quest rings up at twice the price of the Go. That’s the same price as the company’s all-out, PC-based model but portable.

Most of the specs for the Quest are actually the same as the Rift S[8], which we’ll get to in a bit. The big difference between the Quest and the Go is that the Quest can handle the advanced tracking that allows more immersive VR applications.
