It’s worth noting that you can grab this offer if you’re happy with a renewed model (the renewed model comes with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty), but if you’re not, you can still get the regular price of an Oculus Quest 2 and claim a free $25 Amazon gift card.

Because it’s Amazon Prime Day, there’ll never be a better time to claim a $25 Amazon gift card (opens in a new tab), so it’s not a deal to pass up easily. There’s no doubt that this is one of the best VR headset deals around and not just because of the economy, the Oculus Quest 2 is lightweight (weighing just 500 grams), durable and flexible meaning it’s comfortable to wear and if you drop it or take a slight knock it’s unlikely to break. If you’re still unsure, you can read our Oculus Quest 2 review, we really like this VR headset, and these deals.

What sets the Oculus Quest 2 apart from our best VR headsets is its value. The low price and its ability to be used in multiple formats is a big bonus. You can switch between standalone VR games or connecting to a PC if you want a more powerful experience.

Comfort is an important factor in using a VR headset, and our testing has shown that the compact and lightweight design will reduce neck strain.

Performance is excellent on this headset, with a Snapdragon XR2 chip and 6GB of memory. Although it’s not a 4K headset, the graphics are crisp and there are no frustrating lags that drag you out of immersion. The wireless setup for Oculus games helps you or your child avoid unintentional tangles, and the battery lasts two to three hours.

You can also enjoy a PC gaming environment, as long as you connect with an Oculus Link compatible cable (ideally to a USB 3.0 port for maximum speed). Just check your PC carefully to make sure it can support the high resolution required for PCVR Game.

Luckily, setup is pretty intuitive, and you can easily tweak the visual clarity and goalkeeper limit to stay safe in your gaming room. Setup requires two hours of charging, a Facebook account, and the Oculus app on iOS or Android .
