Okay Mark… the Quest 2 is a GREAT value…

Thanks to Oculus for sponsoring this video! Learn more about their new Oculus Quest 2 at ocul.us/LinusTechTips2020
The Oculus Quest 2 is (almost*) better in every way than the original, provided you have no problem signing in with your Facebook account. But how does the standalone experience compare to PC VR this time around?

I will NEVER link any of my social media pages or any content that can be perma banned by a f-ing AI and turn my expensive piece of tech into a literal paper weight. No thanks Zuck, ya fu*k.

    RenewAgain23 hours ago

    No, it's NOT a "Great" value, or a "Good" value, or even a "Mediocre" value... it is a TERRIBLE value (objectively) as you are tied to spyware Facebook accounts that can render your entire device inoperable if your account ever gets deactivated or banned. Facebook/Oculus would need to PAY customers hundreds of dollars (at least) to use this device for it to be even a mediocre one, let alone a good one, let alone a "great" one. It is literally the worst value in VR history.

    Keep in mind their quality control is absolutely garbage!! Lense defects, dead pixels, controller buttons stick. Im on my 4th headset now and the lenses aren't as good as the first, but the controllers are better. This is my experience, probably bad luck, but statistically relevant in my case. In fact best buy is warning me to just suck up complaints or be threatened with a fraud claim on my account... go figure, blame the customer for Chinese production issues...

    I haven't finished watching the video yet but you said at the beginning your wireless to PC experience using what I assume was Virtual Desktop, was way worse than with Link. How up to date are your tests? I've recently bought a Quest 2 and the wireless to PC experience has been absolutely amazing. There are of course some cons, but I'm running on a 5Ghz Wifi signal at 866Mbps and the latency is so marginal it feels so close to nonexistent in many games.

  33. Jacob L. Perry Jr.

    Jacob L. Perry Jr.Day ago

    So much for not sweeping anything under the rug. I wonder how much Facebook paid for him to make this Ad. At the very least, a truly credible video from LTT would have mentioned the trade off in the display: sacrificing the immersive true blacks of OLED (Quest 1) for the higher resolution but more washed-out LCD (Quest 2). He HAD to have noticed the difference playing Beat Saber.

    @Luca Herman Well can anyone explain why on earth it's apparently so bad if Facebook knows anything about you? They can't make a nuke out of your taste in VR games.

  48. Luca Herman

    Luca Herman2 days ago

    @avrona I would argue that yes, tracking everything I do is wrong, and if they change their TOS they could start tracking more such as using their mew image recognition AI to scan your room. The account deletion is not a massive wide spread problem but head over to r/oculus and you will find a lot of examples. On top of this I personally find it wrong someone could revoke my right to a game I already own with no warning, do I not own it? Imagine if all your NES games deleted themselves because you used a turbo controller

  49. avrona

    avrona2 days ago

    @Luca Herman The account deletion right now is just fear-mongerin seeing how the product just came out, and there's nothing really wrong with them tracking what you do with your headset.

  50. Luca Herman

    If you think the Quest 2 is cool, wait until the Quest 3. It'll be twice as powerful for an even cheaper price. You just have to agree to full-house monitoring by fb. I'm not too worried about it. Privacy was gone a long time ago.

  75. Blazing Guns

    Blazing Guns4 days ago

    Barely any games support the cross-buy. not "Most" Facebook says, Paraphrased "Devs can choose to opt out of allowing it" and most do. Beat saber is one that opted out. Check to make sure your game is on the cross-buy list before you buy it for the quest unless you want to have to buy two versions.

    Ill probably just create a new facebook account with a screen name for gaming. Back it up with some new gmail account. Basically make it so the accounts connected to the oculus (facebook and email) are ONLY used for playing oculus. That way, its not able to integrate my gaming data with whatever they have gathered from my actual facebook account. Making the data they are gather only about as useful as the data other services like steam gather on their users.
