Excited about after the fall. Lone Echo finally went on sale after what feels like an eternity. So grabbed that and then immediately got $10 more credit on oculus. So not sure what to spend that on. Will be scouring the thread.

Recently beat Trover in VR and while it can be played without it, that made for a really fun experience. You have to like Rick and Morty style humor though.
A lot of the jokes are just around people never shutting up lol.

Arkham VR was pretty cool too though definitely not worth $20 unless you REALLY wanted to get all of the riddle stuff done.

Has anyone set up a standalone router to be directly connected to your PC for wireless VR play? My desktop is wireless and usually wireless VR is ok, but has some issues. It seems a router directly connected used only for the headset would help.

Getting a whole router for that seems kind of excessive and may not do what you want it to do because I reckon most computers will likely shit their pants when connected to two routers. I may be wrong there, but it seems... well... like it's not gonna work.

You may be better served investigating getting some sort of additional WiFi device for your PC and turning it into an AP which your VR headset connects to.

But honestly, that sounds like a lot of bother too.

The best solution is usually the most simple. You should be backhauling as many devices as you can over Ethernet and avoid using WiFi unless it's a portable device. Powerline adapters can help with this as they're much better than they used to be, and would ensure your computer has a stable connection to your router that is, more importantly, not sharing a signal with your VR headset.

I do a lot of in-home streaming (not to VR headsets admittedly) and the ideal setup for me is a combination of Ethernet switches and powerline adapters to get my whole home wired up, with a mesh WiFi node in each room using Ethernet/powerline backhaul so latency is low and the connection is stable.

I can basically run a game in 4K on my PC in the living room and stream it to my office (on the other side of the flat) without lag and at excellent image quality.

I once again am hating Mixed Reality. Piece of crap right-hand controller has a completely shot touchpad, making it effectively useless. Ugh... Why isn't there some way to recalibrate them?

Been wanting to get into VR for a while and I'm unsure of what to get when I finally get round to it.

From what I can tell -

Oculus Quest 2 - Can connect to PC with cable, also standalone, needs a facebook account (I have a fake facebook account I've used for a while for promotions etc but if it gets banned you're fucked)

Index - Very expensive, has external trackers which I don't really fancy but is one of the best VR headsets on the market

HP G2 Reverb - Best screen resolution but controllers are poor.

Am I correct with the above or completely offbase ? Any other headsets worth considering ? I'm by no means some hardcore VR enthusiast, it's just something I fancy dabbling in and unsure of the best options available at the minute.

More or less correct. Quest 2 can also connect to PC via Wi-Fi, if your equipment is up to the task. PC VR games starter pack here on pastebin from myself...
