    I ordered one and expect it to arrive tomorrow. I saw a couple reviews online as well as Youtube. Anyone else plan on getting it? From what I read, it is very cool. I also ordered Google Cardboard to see how that compares.

    Ever since the Oculus Rift was announcement, I have been so excited.

    Got mine yesterday. As a former Oculus DK2 owner, all I can see is , this is the best yet! I'm completely blown away. If you're a Note 4 owner, you're in for one heck of a ride.

    I cant wait. Mine arrive tomorrow. Google Cardboard is also cool but in using it, I cant help to think how much better the VR will be.

    Yes, and it rocks.

    What gamepad are people using with the note 4?

    It is awesome. Way better experience than Cardboard.

    Also I was also curious what controller people are using. I thought I'd be able to use my MOGA (the very first model) but it doesn't seem to work so I gotta order something.

    Samsung Gear VR only works with the Galaxy Note 4.

    So I did alot of reading on the Oculus forums, the only 2 controller choices are the current Moga Pro or Samsung Gamepad.

    Sorry JA, until you look into one you will not know what it is like. The gear VR and the Google cardboard are like nothing else. It is like being in a dream. When you take the thing off it takes a minute to get your bearings much like waking up or stepping off a roller coaster or something.

    This... Can't wait until they come out with more content like 3d movies, etc. Hope they can get Netflix on board too with an Oculus Cinema app... Gear VR is VERY COOL...

    Use all the Cardboard apps, I started with Google Cardboard because I could not get the Gear VR. Now that I have the Gear VR I use the cardboard apps and don't plug in the USB, for me works fine.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...2cloud.nye2012

    Try the 2014 Sidney New Years app. Run the app and pull the menu down, select 360° and start a video, tap the little cardboard icon when the video starts, slip the Note 4 in the Gear VR but put the USB away from the plug. I use a BT mouse to control things.

    Is the Google Cardboard any good? I was thinking about getting one just to test it out before I decide to buy the Gear VR.

    Yes, it is very good. I got it before I purchased the Gear VR. It is not on the same level as the Gear VR but for sure well worth the $20 for the kit.

    From watching the YouTube videos how do you snap the Note 4 into the VR without plugging in the USB?

    my only problem with the gear VR if you can't keep it plugged in charging while you use it.

    how do you use the cardboard apps in the gear vr without locking the phone in the USB?

    Can't wait to try a VR.... the VR for the galaxy S6 will offer charging while using it. But Samsung dropped SD card expansion as well as replaceable batteries...

    So, I'm loving my new Note 4 even MORE now. :-)

    ...sent from a phabulous HAL 9002, a Sprint Galaxy Note 4.... ;-)

    I have had my vr on order since 2nd of February over here in the UK and now it is 2nd of March and I still haven't received it yet.
    I ordered it and it should have been delivered by now. I have called Samsung numerous times and they keep saying that they are struggling. Has anyone over here in the UK received one or has yours been delayed?
    I am giving them a hard time but I still haven't received it despite many promises.
