Oculus Rift S: Fix Sensor Check

Sensor Check Solution

When I received my Oculus Rift S I thought I met all the prerequisites until I plugged it in. My problem was one little oversight that Oculus didn’t know either. I was running an older version of Windows 10 that I had never updated. Here is the solution to getting your Oculus Rift S to pass the sensor check.

Review: Seagate 3TB Expansion USB3.0 Portable External Hard Drive

The Seagate 3TB portable expansion drive packs a large amount of storage in a little box. The Seagate expansion is larger than the other ultra portable drives on the market and is the size of the Western Digital SE or My Passport portable drives. The Seagate is fine drive, however, I’d recommend the Western Digital My Passport portable instead.

The Western Digital (WD) has a small activity light on the back by the USB port where the Seagate has a wider light on the top. The WD has a flat surface so you can stack where the Seagate has a smooth spiked surface. The WD has rubber feet on the bottom so it won’t move, the Seagate is completely smooth making it too easy to slip.

The two drives are pretty much the same in terms of specs and performance but in my option the WD is a little bit better overall. The WD is also cheaper than the Seagate, but prices changes all the time (high today, low tomorrow).

HTC’s Vive VR headset (Steam VR) is now available for pre order. The $799 USD headset is marked at $1149 Canadian with an estimated shipping cost of $65 CDN, making for a sub-total of $1214 CDN. Vive costs about $300 CDN more than the Oculus Rift. The primary cause for the markup is the inclusion of the wireless motion controllers, and the Vive’s advance motion tracking over the Oculus Rift.
