Get virtual with 40% off an Acer mixed reality headset through Amazon’s Daily Deals

Matt Sayer 15 January 2018 NEWS


You'd be hard pressed to find a better deal than this on a quality PC-based virtual reality headset.

Jacking into the realm of virtual reality has long been an expensive proposition, both for users and for the companies developing the tech that grants access to the Matrix-like simulacrum of the real world. That's why, up to this point, only three organisations have bought fully into the VR industry with their own headsets.

However, thanks to Microsoft's Mixed Reality initiative, Sony, HTC and Oculus are no longer the only big names in the VR space. The Windows Mixed Reality platform provides a template for other hardware manufacturers to build their own headsets without having to pour time and resources into developing the software, too. Companies like Dell, HP and Lenovo have jumped on the opportunity with PC-based headsets to rival the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

Acer has also thrown its hat into the ring, and thanks to Amazon's Daily Deals, you can currently snap up the Acer AH101-D8EY Windows Mixed Reality headset for a tremendous 40% off. Normally clocking in at a hefty $500, you can pick it up for just $276.98 plus shipping for a limited time.

With a 2880 x 1440 resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate and two controllers bundled in, this is a smashing deal for anyone looking to get into VR without draining their bank account. Head on over to Amazon to check the deal out for yourself.
