HTC Vive VR headsets fall to all-time lows for Black Friday
HTC’s Vive Cosmos is one of the best VR headsets out there, but if we’re being real, it’s always been a bit too expensive. Now, you can buy that model from Amazon during Black Friday sales for $399 instead of $549, the biggest discount we’ve seen yet. Amazon also has deals on other HTC headsets and bundles, so it’s a good time to jump in if you’ve been waiting for a sale.
The Vive Cosmos must be tethered to a PC, but there’s no need to install sensors thanks to the inside-out tracking system that works well, according to our Engadget review. It’s strongest feature is the bright and sharp screens with very high 2,880 x 1,700 pixel resolution across both eyes, along with decent 90 Hz refresh rates. The biggest downside is the price, as it’s far more expensive than Oculus headsets — but the sale brings it on par with rivals. Note that the controllers aren’t included.
