Hiya i'm contemplating getting a VR headset and not sure which rout to go. At the moment a new rift with controllers and sensors is about the same price as a second hand Vive with controllers and sensors,or £200 more new. Is the Vive worth getting second hand or the extra money over the Rift

it's not.  I recently got the Rift 6 days ago and can't stop using it.  I would suggest getting the rift considering the only benefits to vive are more games and more comfortable w/ glasses.  I have only good things to say about the rift and I don't think its worth getting a second hand vive or pay 200 extra.

The Vive is not worth the extra money unless there's some special consideration to be made - wanting to wear glasses inside the headset for example (not that the Vive is perfect for that, but there is more room than in the Rift).

 

The other question is whether to wait for new headsets, but there only seem to be more expensive options coming this year, or low-end mobile/standalone stuff. So the Rift still sits pretty strong in the middle, as an affordable PC-based option.

Rift all day.  As long as you get good extension cables for your HMD and your sensors, the Vive has 0 benefit over the Rift right now, and the Touch controllers are SO MUCH better.

Very likely worth saving up for if you're serious about VR
