MTBS' Ultimate Virtual Reality Shopping Guide - Where to Try, Buyers' Protection


Virtual Reality is a significant purchase, and it's important that consumers get the chance to try the technology before they buy.

Here are the individual product try before you buy search engines

Google Daydream Viewer
Sony Playstation VR
Oculus Rift CV1
HTC Vive

Detailed below, Neil Schneider secret shopped at Best Buy, Amazon, Gamestop, and the Microsoft Store.  In addition to showcasing where to try VR devices before buying, Schneider outlines what customers can expect from each retailer.  This also features an amazing interview with Yorkdale, Ontario Microsoft Store Manager Donna Ball.

Special update!  We just learned today that Microsoft Stores also sell the Oculus Rift, and they offer the same 30 day satisfaction guarantee that the HTC Vive receives.  As of this writing, this customer satisfaction policy is unique to the Microsoft Store when compared to other Canadian retailers like Best Buy Canada, EB Games Canada, and to an extent Amazon (Amazon is a case by case negotiation) that don't offer the same easy returns on opened VR items.
