Samsung Odyssey Black Friday Review
As far as design goes, the Samsung HMD Odyssey is nothing to get excited about. It is black with no color accents in any way. It bears a close similarity to the LG SteamVR headset we saw back in GDC 2017, even down to the miniature headband that goes across your forehead.

As mentioned, the Samsung HMD Odyssey is exceptionally comfortable. It feels as though we can wear it readily for a long time without having neck strain or growing that cinching feeling around the cranium which other headsets tend to induce.
I really love that Samsung included an IPD adjustment. Why the other Windows MR HMDs don’t have this really is a large error as while I purchase they are fixed on the average, it means anyone not close to that average will possess less than a perfect picture. I am 59mm which is a whole 5mm off the 64mm average.
As opposed to picking off critters from afar, Samsung HMD’s settlement made it worth it to be more precise: I would aim for a kneecap, stagger a creature, then teleport directly into the enemy, triggering an explosion. Because of the clear resolution, I felt confident enough in my planning to really go for weak things. Ammo is all but infinite, so while I could’ve mowed creatures down from afar without much effort, the crisp visuals made the extra effort worth it. It gave an axe-murderer a surgeon’s precision, adding surprising strategy to what could have been unsatisfactory mayhem. As someone who becomes really lazy in FPS games, that is a feat.
The Odyssey also has a physical knob to correct for the difference between your students. Yes, others are”one size fits all” units that just try to compensate for differences in human anatomy with applications. Only the Samsung allows you to manually adjust the differences between the eyepieces having an easy-to-use knob that you turn until pictures seem their sharpest, such as at the eye doctor. Additionally, it boasts a 110-degree field of view, which bests the 95 levels offered by nearly any other competitor — that the Acer headset also offers a 110-degree field of view.
Do remember that it is still early days for WMR, and you can tell by the amount of adventures out there. Cliff House is a pretty cool house area to roam around, however, there is not the quantity of great adventures that Vive, Rift as well as PS VR provide at this stage in its lifecycle. Hopefully, that will increase as the month’s pass.
