    "Light lettering or objects on a dark background brings out the 'screen door effect' and 'god rays." If the content can keep your mind distracted, the 'screen door effect' goes away and resolution/aliasing issues aren't a real problem with most games."

    "With more gaming companies offering virtual reality games, buyers will want to get a headset that not only has great technology but is also easy to use. This VR headset is lightweight and easy to use. The controller will make it easy for any novice to hook up and be ready for virtual reality in no time.

    "Very pleased with the CUDEVS VR Goggles. I use in conjunction with mt Bose Quiet head phones for a dramatic experience. Paired very quickly and simply with my iPhone 6S.

    "I own PSVR and Oculus, and I just can't recommend Microsoft's VR/AR platform against those. This mixed reality solution is really applied differently than other VR tech, and I just can't recommend it for gamers."
