    Lenovo Explorer reviews

    Explorer Mixed Reality Headset (Iron Gray) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and easy to setup I already own a HTC Vive, but this headset looked interesting because it uses inside-out tracking, meaning you can use it anywhere without having to install lighthouses around your room. In practice this system works very well. Also, for the price I paid, $100, it was well worth it. If you application or game does not require VR controllers you can use this headset right out of the box. Steam games are supported through the Windows Mixed Reality app in the Steam store. Compared to my Vive I notice that text is sharper and easier to read. The headset is very lightweight. Only cons are the fitment is not as snug against the face, allowing outside light to leak in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, very satisfied I bought the headset without wands for $100 to use with Iracing. I've used the HTC Vive previously. This is better. Less screen door effect. I had to go thru Steam to connect with Iracing, but it has since worked like a charm. Very much improved my Iracing experience. I highly recommend it. The minor negatives I had read about... audio connection too close to the ear, small sweet spot for the clearest vision, and that the headset tightening mechanism was fragile have been non-issues. Those things could be improved but they don't matter much in my experience. My computer is a Dell with an I5 processor. That has been plenty of computing power. BH has been a fine vendor. I would buy from them again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Price/Value As VR stands today, in the early stages, this is a great product for the sale price. It's right in line with video quality compared to most other offerings it tracks well and is reasonably comfortable. If you are on the fence about VR then this set is the answer. Personally speaking on my view of things, VR is not worth the normal asking price of $400-1000 in my thinking, but the price of this set is more in line for what you get with VR. ( SDE and poor resolution, etc.) I got this for sim racing and not having motion controllers is not an issue for that, an Xbox 360 controller will work but don't cover all the VR games that need a controller. All I can say is at this price point I'm not upset with myself for the purchase, the headset works fine and I'm happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value It looks like Windows mixed reality gear is in fire sale mode with its various manufacturers. This is extremely good value at this price and if your system passes the system requirements PC check you will be up and running very quickly. Microsoft has enabled these headsets to connect and play Steam VR apps which is the motherload of games and content for the Vive and Rift .

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I received a headset with several dead pixel. The headset is working ok, but the right panel have 3 dead pixel. I looked it up that the headset does not have warranty at the Lenovo. I did regret the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good headset. Even more so for that Price. Enjoying VR since the Oculus DK1 and DK2 and owning a Vive VR headset since its launch in spring 2016, I was curious how the Windows Mixed Reality headsets would fare in comparison. As those headsets are still rather expensive here in switzeland, I just let not pass this offer up. The lenovo headset cost me 99$ plus about 55$ in shipping cost and taxes, but that was still way cheaper then cheapeat local offer. Shipping was super fast and everything was in perfect condition. About the headset itself, here's my bullet-point review, for the headset WITHOUT motion controllers: The good: - tracking is top-notch. No noticeable difference from the Vive. - setup is super smooth: plug the headset in, follow the onscreen instructions that pop up. Done. - very comfortable. - lightweight and practical mount on the head. - Very clear and crisp image with easy readable text... Cons: - ... with a bit washed out colors and blacks that are more grey than black. This is owed to the use of backlit LCD panels instead of OLED panels like in the Vive. - small "sweet spot". This is the area of the lenses that produce a sharp image when you look through. - no physically adjustable IPD (inter pupilar distance) of the lenses. It is fixed at 63mm. I have an IPD of 66.5mm and I am bareley within the use range. This means, I can barely see a clear image with both eyes together. You can adapt the IPD in software somewhat, but thus is more to show the virtual world in its correct size. Conclusion: If you have an IPD of about 61 to 67 (better 62 to 66), you absolutely cannot go wrong with this headset. It is incredibly good for flight/space sims and racing sims, and offers an affordable yet technically advanced entrance to VR. I give only 4 Stars instead of the full 5 stars because the IPD cannot be physically adjusted - otherwise, it deserves a 5 Star review.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry-level VR headset Amazing price for those looking to try out VR. I use mine for sim racing with a separate steering wheel, so the motion controllers arent needed. Its great that they offer a package thats the headset alone. Setup is super easy, theres basically zero screen-door effect and it tracks my head motion really well. Downsides: The lenses are smaller than what you get on the HTC Vive, and you cant adjust the distance between them. So if your head is smaller or larger than average, this might not work for you. And the headset puts out a bit of heat, so using it for more than about an hour can get quite warm. If youre looking for a direct competitor to the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, this probably isnt it. But if youre wanting to try out VR, you cannot beat this price.
