I picked mine up for 229, but since it's the only VR experience I've had I didn't notice the fov. On paper it is supposed to be 110 degrees and when I was looking into buying it was about middle of the pack according to the specs. I actually contacted hp about it because it was listed differently in places. The developer model had a narrower fov that caused confusion too.

Thanks for the continued coverage. Reviews like this are important for WMR's success, in order to steer people away from the weaker competitors and give them a better (likely) first experience with VR.

Yeah, but these retail for a fraction of the price & require no lighthouses or cameras, etc.

A lot of people (myself included) would sacrifice a fair amount of features, performance, or other trade-offs to go with WMR for these reasons.
