RITECH Virtual Reality 3D Glasses Ⅱ £6.31 delivered (Possible £6.05 using code) @ Gearbest

Found 25th Jan 2016
I recently ordered the 3D Virtual Reality Headset Phone 3D Glasses from gearbest i posted on here approx 3 weeks ago (see 1st comment for a quick review) and have been really surprised at how good they are for £8 odd.

Just had an email probably based on my previous order for the RITECH VR 3D Glasses II using code GBRITECH to get them for just over £6 odd delivered.

Personally think they're better than my previous buy as the have a focus on top depending on what size smartphone you have and also have a magnet on the side so you can select different settings etc without having to take off the headset.

VR Headset i purchased previously are now slightly cheaper

currently using with a Samsung S6 edge, phone fits fine with it not rattling around and been really clear through lenses.

Personally i've used it 5 or 6 times in the last week and found it really comfortable.
Straps can be fully adjusted and seem decent quality that should last.

Apps / Games i've currently been using are as follows

Rollercoaster VR (Android)
Rollercoaster VR (iOS)

Pretty fun, you actually turn your head to move the lever to continue the ride, i'd say it's worth the 69p for the full app but it's currently free to try.

Titans of space

Funnily enough all about space, load the app, put the headset on and view all the planets and more.

Kids seem to be pretty fascinated by this, especially when looking up and seeing all the stars.

Sisters

I can't really comment on this game personally as only spent a few mins on it, family members have tried and within 5 they were screaming and jumping around (Ghost story / game) - Best played with headphones in!

Also if you're looking to use your VR with say a PC this can be done using TrinusVR

I've given it a quick go and seems to work well, there's a trial version so can test before without spending a penny.

-------------------------

Back to the deal itself, i THINK this is a better deal due to the magnet on the side of the VR and if you don't have a bluetooth controller with a normal headset you sometimes have to take out the phone to select what you need, not a great pain but you could be doing without it.

also has a focus button on top depending on what size phone you have.

It's also £2 odd cheaper - Don't forget to use the code GBRITECH to bring it down a tad - Grab the deal HERE or hit the 'Get Deal' button

Phone fits upto 6 inches and has really good reviews.

There's also a YouTube review here if that helps.



PS - If you do have any recommendation on apps / games etc, feel free to comment

Strange, just checked and code working OK.

Paypal charge slightly more as it's using their conversion rate as i recall.

Enjoy, once received, let us know how you get on

When I went in to buy it said "sorry the flash sale is over" but still charged me £6.05 on Paypal so I assume I'll get it for that price?! Anyway, thanks for this listing - my son wants to experiment with VR on his Steam games and this along with the TrinusVR software seems a nice cheap intro.
Good write up and deal. Hot and purchased along with bluetooth joypad too for 5.99

Code did not work for me, something about it was a VIP code? Still ordered though thanks

aha, win win then!

It's really worth trying out.

Personally didn't think i'd be a fan but that soon changed.

When i do get time, i'll practice more with my PC and other games and add some more info.

Nice spot, games like titans in space don't need a controller as you can select via using movements and moving the dot on screen.

Well worth having though!

If you have an S6 then it's a no brainer to get the Gear VR, I know it's more money but it's a much better experience.
The TrinusVR software is interesting. I wonder if this will work with Elite Dangerous?

Anyone used TrinusVR?

The brief time i did use it, it was pretty easy to set up.

Downloaded the software then the app and just connected together.

I've literally spent 10 mins on it though, messed around with webpages just getting used to it.

Would be great to hear from others if the best form of software or anything else out there

£6...bargain...

It comes from China, god knows how long you will have to wait for it and how much tax you will have to pay. But voted hot as for a first preview in what is to come with the Oculus and HTC.
I ordered the cardboard VR headset from the deal posted the last time (~3 weeks ago). I do hope I get it. dont want to put in anymore money in the site until I get those...

You wont pay tax on a £6.00 purchase, you will wait 3/4 weeks for it however.

You should get it, if not you will get a refund. I've bought loads of quadcopter bits off Gearbest and they have always come through, one quadcopter was damaged and I got it replaced, although I did have to push them a bit, they wanted me to repair it myself.
Is it possible to remote play from your ps4 to your phone and view in vr headset.

As above, no tax as under the threshold.

My previous order arrived in approx 10 days and was actually sent from Germany
I bought a Ritech V2 and have been REALLY disappointed...

I used to have an Oculus Rift so I know what is possible.. And to be fair.. A phone is more than able to give an impressive VR experience.. But not with the Ritech!

The reason being is that the lenses do not focus on the phone.. The phone needs to be 3" further away for them to work...

I am "blessed" with poor eyesight and have a prescription of -8.0.. With my glasses on it just about works, but then its a bit uncomfortable.. But when I am wearing contacts, I simply can't focus on the screen.

So luckily for me, I can wear my glasses and just about use it, but gave up after a few mins.. But people with good/normal vision can't use it as they can't focus.

As such, its not £6 well spent.. I still want a "cardboard" VR solution whilst I wait for Sonys PS VR system, but can't find consistent recommendations of any which are worth the money.

So I have given up on the idea.

Personally don't know, but seeing as Sony are bringing out their own version and no supported games as of yet, highly doubtful (might be wrong though)

Thanks for the info, appreciate the feedback!

Have you looked at the previous deal i posted? I've had no issue with them, also family members who wear contacts have had no issues AFAIK.

I havn't.. Another headset? I can't say with 100% certainty that the Ritecks won't work for everyone.. But my other 1/2 (who is an optician by the way) had a look and she also found the focal length too short (but not as bad as me).

Another thing to consider is that we are both mid-40s.. So younger people may not have such a problem with them...

No supported games The list is at 91 and growing...

Don't confuse Sonys offering and these "Cardboard" VR headsets.. the PSVRs competition is the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive and will cost £100s.

The Ritech headset is basically a Plastic "Google Cardboard" headset....

£399 I recon.. After having a OR DK1, I know what to expect and would pay anything (literally)... But I just hope they have cured the motion sickness! I never get suck. Boats.. Cars.. Plane.. Rollercoasters.. Nothing makes me sick.. But VR... That was the worst feeling I ever head.. Got a full sweat on and my brain got so confused, it actually got worse when I took the headset off.

I said at the time that this could be the downfall of VR and I hope I am wrong.

What was the previous deal you eluded too?

Yes, can be used with an iphone within measurements and various apps are available on iOS / iTunes (see first comment for example or Rollercoaster app)
nice
I've returned a RITECH II to amazon.

Cold as poorer field of vision compared to cardboard headset (all of these 'focus' ones tend to have poor FOV) and can be difficult to focus.
The poor FOV (field of virw) makes the VR not as immersive.
This also has slots which let's light in.

Plus points for having a magnet though.
