In our preview, we wrote, "Oculus has delivered an entirely new hardware tracking system without sacrificing any quality or performance, and that's an amazing technical accomplishment. It may give people who currently own and love their existing Oculus Rift reason to pause before upgrading if they're already super happy with what they have, but everyone else is going to be delighted by this new model. And at $399, this whole package is a steal."
