The Oculus Quest 2 accomplishes a frankly incredible feat: it’s more powerful than the original standalone VR headset, yet also $100 less expensive. The combination of a much newer processor, 50 percent more RAM, and a higher-resolution screen result in smoother, crisper, and even more immersive VR games and experiences, with the rest of the core experience kept largely intact from before.

Thanks to inside-out tracking using cameras on the headset itself and compact motion controllers, the Quest 2 is a truly portable VR system that you can use anywhere, with plenty of great games available right from the headset. You can also connect the Quest 2 to a capable PC and play additional games, as well. In pursuit of a lower price, the $299 Oculus Quest 2 comes with less-effective straps and a less-precise inter-pupillary distance system for ensuring clarity and comfort—those are the downsides. Even so, the incredible value, great quality, and ease of use make the Oculus Quest 2 is the best VR option for the vast majority of people.
