VR is super sweet and I love my vive, but the tech isnt exactly perfect yet. I'd get the printer.

Depends what you want to do, I mean a 3d printer is cool because you can make almost anything with it, but with a rift you can explore many things that not a lot of us get to in the world of VR. Personally I would get the 3d printer as I am an engineering student so would be REALLY helpful with my projects but like I said, it is all subjective

The printer sounds more exciting and practical. VR is really cool but, it needs to get better or at least cheaper.

Should you eat cake or pie?

Should you buy a car or a bike?

 

Questions like these don't have an objective answer, it all depends on what you want. I get the impression that you're just looking to buy anything though, so I would recommend keeping your money for when you actually want something specific.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Imma also chime in with the "get a 3D-printer", though, only if you get one of the higher-quality ones, like e.g. Prusa i3 MK3, and not the cheap, low-end ones. Why do I recommend a 3D-printer? Well, you'll have a proper excuse to learn some actually useful skills, ie. 3D-modeling and/or CAD, you can print all sorts of fun toys and gizmos, or you can do what I do and print custom cases for DIY-electronics, fix all sorts of things around the house, print custom parts that just can't be found anywhere and so on and so forth.

 

Hell, you don't have to even print anything for yourself: I print various kinds of plastic toys for the nurses at the nearby hospital to hand out to sick kids. I get a good feeling out of it, and the visit to the hospital will hopefully be a wee bit less awful for the kids, too.

I'llya be getting a 3D printer, as it's MUCH cheaper (for a little self build). I may think about occulus/Vive v2. Because IMO it needs 1080p+ to make it just feel more natural.

Go for the Printer if you're into DIY stuff and can see/picture actual usage for it.

Go for the VR if you want to play games in VR... or watch porn.

Depends what you would use a 3D printer for. What are your PC specs because that would effect whether you could use a rift properly?

I bought a used 3d printer just a couple days ago. Its cool but so far I haven't found it very useful.. and the prints can take hours to complete. 

 

If its an either or situation I would probably go VR headset

you probably wont be happy with a printer like that.

 

i started with a low cost printer as well and while it got me started i now really come to hate the shortcomings and i am considering buying a prusa mk3 so i can print much better quality.
