OUR SUMMARY

The Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset actually feels like its designed for comfort and practicality, it features a double-padded headband with an easily adjustable knob and a flip visor that allows for engagement with the real world without having to remove your headset. Its very light , just 531 grams so there’s no problem wearing it for long periods, Inside-out tracking is built into your headset to deliver precise movement with no need to install hardware on your walls like the vive or rift systems. The spatial audio system was very impressive, it lets you hear sounds from specific locations just like in the real world, and the  motion controllers makes it easy to move through virtual spaces. The combined effect is a sensation where your virtual and physical worlds are in perfect sync. A slight gripe about the lenses, they lack IPD adjustment, However, Windows Mixed Reality comes with software IPD adjustment, which improves image distortion and depth accuracy based on your IPD. You can set your custom IPD via Settings > Mixed Reality > Headset display > Calibration, but the overall feel in use was very good, it has the feel of quality and performs very well with superb screen resolution and creates a very  immersive experience.  Great tech, we loved them.

SOME BUYER FEEDBACK

A very nice device, played Superhot on this device and was so additive. The device is a quality item, the screen resolution was amazing and had an overall premium feel. Sat nicely on my head with a band to loosen or tighten and was easy to set up.     ROB C 5/5

Having used the Gear VR extensively, this really is a step up in capability. The screen door effect is much reduced (not entirely I hasten to add). The ability for the device to map your surroundings, which is a really fast and simple process, is excellent. I had a good go on the demo experience, which included the ability to move around a virtual house, containing a bunch of demo apps, such as;

A Halo training app,
A game called Super Hot VR, which was a fun twist on an FPS, where any movement would result in your opponents moving closer and closer – The aim being to punch or shoot them before they reached you.
A virtual tour of Machu Pichu,
An alien shooting game called Space Pirates – You had guns and a shield here, and could move around dodging bullets etc…

The build quality isn’t massively high, but the device felt plenty sturdy enough to last long enough, and was lovely and light to wear.

For the price, you can’t argue that the Acer Headset is pretty cool!

P GALLAGHER 5/5

 

The Quality is Amazing, We own Vive and Oculus headsets, and the video quality of this headset is a lot more sharp and clear that the others. FERNANDO 5/5

Setting it up was easy, it works well with my PC, and it delivers a quality experience. Content seems to be added very frequently, and gives one a lot of entertainment for the most part. I can even wear my glasses under it. The only major thing it lacks is a microphone, or an easy way to plug in a microphone. The way the padding is placed also makes it kinda sweaty.  DYLAN 4/5.
