The resolution could be better, when you first looking into it, people talk about the resolution, and it's true it's not great, however once you are "in" there and your brain starts doing things, you completely forget about it. It's absolutely amazing how well it "tricks" your brain into thinking things are real. The other issue is higher resolution means you need more graphics card, and even at the current resolution you need a pretty expensive graphics card. You can easily drop $1200-$1800 on a machine that has a higher end graphics card to run the system smoothly at full frame rate. Currently none of the Mac's have enough video oomph for the Oculus but it sounds like they are working on it.
It really does trick your brain, and it's scary how well. I actually got mine to see if I could exposure therapy a fear of heights and it absolutely works, almost too well. There are several heights experiences and when I first started they all instantly triggered my fear of heights. You can find yourself flinching from objects that might hit you and bracing for impacts. The other issue in some games, roller coasters etc. can be motion sickness (or they call it VR sickness, but same feeling). The roller coaster rides can be real enough to your brain your stomach can drop out and feel turns etc.
and I can pretty quickly get motion sick after a few minutes on those games. However, for most games it's not an issue for me.
Overall if you don't mind the expense, or if you already have a gaming PC with a big video card, it's an amazing experience. It would be great if it was cheaper, or they had a dedicated PC/graphics unit they sold with it, or it could offer higher resolution without needing $1000+ graphics card etc. but overall it's pretty amazing what you get for $500.
So when I got my Occulus and tried to set it up I couldnt get the software to install. That means it wouldn't come on for me to do anything. To compound this. It was the same day that everyone's occlus didnt work for a few days. I dnt know if that was the inital cause, but NOTHING I did would let me download the occulus software. Registry edits. Changing the permissions for occulus did nada. I tried contacting customer support and it was just about as worthless an experience. All they told me to do was turn it off an on again like I was an idiot. Needless to say I had to delete everything from my C: drive and reinstall windows as a last ditch effort and then I finally got it to work. It was the most backwards ridiculous thing I've ever installed on my PC.
After all that though it works fine. It's a pretty neat experience once you get it working. Flight aims are awesome and ping pong is probably the most fun you could possibly have with goggles on your face. For reference my PC setup consists of;
I7 8700K, Gigabyte aorus gaming 7, 16gb ram, 1080 Ti and have the oculus software installed on a Samsung 960 Evo pcie drive.
