The Oculus Quest was already arguably the best VR headset, at least in terms of versatility. But the addition of built-in hand tracking AND playing desktop VR games via Oculus Link might just make it the MUST-HAVE VR headset.

    10 months later. Quest 2 is practically perfect for wireless and link. Still room to improve, but I love it.

    holy, holy shit



  6. ThatOneGuyWhyNot on March 12, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Sadly i had to sell it due to not accepting having to add facebook account to make it fully work…



  7. TriGaar on March 12, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Revisit this with quest 2 and VD! I think both VD and Oculus Link have improved a lot! Wifi6 too



  8. Rishi Kumar on March 12, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I’m working on a VR headset project and making a prototype , just want to know if someone else working on the same thing. If anyone is out there , We can make it together and share information.

    You can hide the fact that you’re high by wearing vr!

    hand traking still not thear yet with the q2



  11. SlovenMalaphor on March 12, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Got my Quest 2 a couple weeks ago and did not know about the hand tracking. Somehow that one feature was not mentioned in any reviews I read or watched. I guess I didn’t watch any Linus videos on it.



  12. ItsJustDaBoi on March 12, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    DONT DO OCULUS LINK ⚠️ do virtual desktop. It’s wire free 👍🏻🗿

    With the quest 2 virtual desktop is way better and I haven’t seen the black screen



  15. Isaac Ramirez on March 12, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    My hands feel naked without the controls and I like the smaller rift s controls



  16. Beanie boi on March 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Bruh what about sidequest



  17. Isaac Ramirez on March 12, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Me like rift s to play roblox, after this video me like that for on the go and plug to me laptop



  18. Mr. Nerd on March 12, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    amazon basics usb 3.0 to type c works like a charm for me, and its only roughly $10.



  19. Falk Flak on March 12, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    and now you have to have a Facebook account to use it. That’s one hell of a "Killer Feature" to me.



  20. Scott Elinor on March 12, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Here’s a list that helped me out.

    In the end, I went with #5.

  21. Andrew Machleid on March 12, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    there have been several updates from the stuff covered in this video
    so I’d love an updated video



  22. Dr Uber on March 12, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    The link with quest and quest 2 lag for steam vr games is no hassle to fix. I have done a solution I cannot remember but my games are now running smoother than ever



  23. Kampftweety _107 on March 12, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Hi, i watched a ton of videos about vr headsets…
    I have a very good pc and dont know what i should buy…
    I want to mainly play beatsaber and to draw…
    BUT it shouldn’t be very expensive… (i still dont know whats a good price but i would spend 100 – 500 euro (120,49 – 602,45 dollar ) to get a good piece of vr headset.)
    Just a little bonus but whats the cheapest headset i can still use for drawing ?
    Thanks for the help



  24. clat _ on March 12, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Linus is like an extremely smart 13 year old he’s funny af



  25. AnimationHUB on March 12, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    the link sucks virtual desktop knocked it out of the park with streaming wireless to headset lierally i have 4fps cabled with link in any vr game with Virtual desktop with oculus home only installed not running can run Steam vr Without Home no cable 60fps minimal latency and i have a veyr bad net connection and its actualyl mindblowing Just click home and set the exe As administrator now it wont launch with steam vr go in Virtual desktop with the side quest plugin and hit steam vr play its so Clear with 10ms latency to the controller wich is 100000000000000x better than i was getting in link but this is wireless

    Appreciate this video to bring in some useful pointers on Oculus VR Headset



  28. Brandon C.S on March 12, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    i dont think linus chooses the titles of the videos ._.



  29. Dan Z on March 12, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    I’d love to see this again with the quest 2



  30. K _makes_it on March 12, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    You should try the quest 2



  31. Borgonian Evolution on March 12, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    I was seriously interested in VR and all excited for new tech and good reviews… right up to the point I read on all of them that they REQUIRE a facebook account to work… NOT gonna happen.. Ditch that bullshit and Im in.



  32. Sharcc on March 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    And then it got worse.



  33. lofi_ 11 on March 12, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    name of it ?? please



  34. Tito schultz on March 12, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    In my experience, streaming is much much better than oculus link. Probably because of updates, but oculus link barely worked for me.



  35. Red Toad on March 12, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I have one of these with the vive head strap and it’s really cool



  36. NAW Qubert on March 12, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Please review this headset Varjo XR-3 or VR-3 from Varjo Industries. It has human eye resolution and 115° FOV. Highest resolution of all headsets.



  39. Uniform Duck on March 12, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Moment of silence for Oculus Rift S owners



  40. Aidan Saunders on March 12, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Quest 2 should be coming tomorrow, so excited.



  41. Yeethan on March 12, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    They just made the quest into a rift s but with hand tracking and 20-78 dollars extra depending on which link cable you buy for it..



  42. milkyy on March 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    a litteral year late to this video but i get the jellyness too so your not alone linus



  43. Daniel Szulc on March 12, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Can you check hows quest2 works with the virtual desktop but compare 5Ghz vs 6Ghz wifi connection? (wired router to pc and laptop over wifi?) I wonder how good it is? I wanna play wireless I don’t want link cable. Cheers 😉 I guess 5Ghz should be good enough but I’m curious about your personal opinion 😉



  44. LuisMa Suárez Gutiérrez on March 12, 2021 at 11:48 pm

  46. Enpsychlodelica on March 12, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    One thing I love about my brain is I can render anything inside of my imagination my play the fuck out of it who needs a headset when your born with one 🤔🙃



  47. Chuckles1008 on March 12, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Wireless is WAY better now.



  48. Ann Moore on March 12, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Please go back to looking like this… You look like Jack Dorsey now except more homeless..



  49. Jack Carlin on March 12, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    1 year later and I still think oculus quest is a good vr headset, despite the whole facebook data contreversy thing with the quest 2. i only have the quest one and its really good so far. no problems yet.
