Default SAMSUNG gear VR headset - mini review

Being a bit of a gadget freak I bought one for Christmas

While it is absolutely amazing to watch some of the stuff available for example the Netflix theater, I wonder how practical it really is.

I reckon your face would get very hot and sweaty for the duration of a film.

Since I am not into gaming, I can't see any other purpose for it

Bottom line.

Amazing but still a bit gimmicky

It's a bit like watching a movie in 3D, after about 10 mins the novelty wares off. Also at that point I start to get dizzy and feel a bit ill.

If anyone was interested in getting one, I'd recommend they get one of the cheap ones for 30quid in Dunnes or Mahon point, gives you the same experience but when you get sick of it you won't be as much out of pocket.
