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.

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.

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

thanks for your answer
i wil look on YouTube i don,t understand it
if i look on YouTube then i wil know what it is

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.

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.

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.
