Unit arrived Friday, but I don't think VR is for me.
I get motion sickness far too quickly and it makes my eyes feel very weird for a while afterwards.

Headset only

Happy to post around NZ, via Christchurch.

Used maybe 2-3 hours tops.
Original box, only headset was unwrapped. Everything else in place.

Your motion sickness and issues might have to do with IPD setting. You can set in software for these headsets. Not sure it works as well as physical adjustments. Also as far as I could tell there's a max limit for the setting - too small for my IPD. It's put me off these particular headsets. Not much information online about it either.

My ipd lines up almost perfectly with the Lenovo. Everything is clear.
My main issue is eye fatigue. Generally motion sickness on first person fast things like car racing and cockpit views.

Most people that complain about eye fatigue ends up being IPD. When you say lines up perfectly you mean your IPD happens to match the default? I'm not actually sure that things won't be clear if you have it wrong, your eyes might just be compensating to get a clear picture i.e. this is why you're getting the eyestrain.


Don't forget to blink...


You do also tend to build up a bit of stamina once you get used to it over a few days.


Headaches and other discomfort can be from your brain being tricked into having motion, but it's not matching up with your other senses.


Do you tend to get sick from 3D movies?


BTW do you know what the IPD setting range is? Like I mentioned I think it's too small for my IPD - but very little information online.

I work with some VR and HoloLens at my job. Most VR just makes me feel a bit off. No problem with 3D movies, apart form them being gimmicky and crap ;).


Rollercoasters don't make me feel great (but I still do them). Maybe it's just me.


I think the Lenovo's fixed is 63. Optmised for 63-65. I am somewhere between 62 and 63. That is pretty good for this unit. The IPD range goes up to 67 in software. Can't remember what the bottom end is.

67mm seems a bit small. I'd measured mine to be 70mm. Looked like nice headsets otherwise.
