Have a HTC Vive, and a whole bunch of Google Cardboard. Apparently Biotech companies LOVE providing free VR cardboard to researchers.

I have a Samsung Gear VR. I tried both the Oculus Rift and Playstation VR and didn't care for either. VR gaming seems gimmicky to me and I just like being able to watch a movie or sporting event in VR, not play games. The Gear VR is fine for just that for me. I can watch Hulu and Netflix shows and movies and feel like I'm in a theatre.

1. Google Daydream
2. HP 14402 Windows Mixed Reality Headset

the WMR headsets have a few flaws, but they're so much cheaper and easier to setup than the vive, so its a lot better for occasional use without needing to wire up those sensors and remap everything
