This is what credit cards are for! It helps that we are only pay half for daycare during the summer.
I spent quite a bit of time messing with it and setting it up. I wanted to get everything set up properly so the headset/senors could reach the living room without moving my desktop every time. The extension cables I have weren't working though. I eventually gave up and just plugged it all directly into the PC so I could at least test it out.
1) Built in headphones are nice. Sound quality is good enough for me and the convenience is great over the Vive.
2) I like the feel of the Touch controllers. Vive's can be held in either hand, these have a R and L. Gestures are also neat
3) No breakout box like the Vive. Headset straight to the PC
4) Sensors need to be plugged into the PC. This is a pain. Vive just needs power and no direct PC connection
5) I think the headset overall is more comfortable than Vive, but Vive has a new headband that is suppose to fix this
I need to play more games before I can comment on those. I think Vive will probably be the room scale winner. The few games I played today had a front that they wanted you to face. It wasn't a huge deal though.
Tomorrow I am going to research cables and get those ordered. Hopefully by the end of the week I have everything set up in its permanent location.
