If you still haven't hopped on the Windows Mixed Reality bandwagon, Microsoft has a pretty steep price cut available on Lenovo's offering. Right now, you can pick up the Lenovo Explorer for $199 on the Microsoft Store, which is a full $200 off of its usual $399 price tag.
Outside of aesthetics, all of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets on the market are fairly similar. Lenovo's Explorer is no different, offering inside-out tracking via the cameras flanking each side of the headset. Each camera allows the Explorer to track motion controllers in your hands, along with the space around you.
Like other headsets, the Lenovo Explorer operates over a single cable running to your PC. The mixed reality experience runs on two 1440 x 1440 displays in the headset. In our review, we had a couple of gripes about the headset, but found it to be a pretty solid offering for dipping your toes into Windows Mixed Reality. And for $200 off, the experience is a little more tempting.
If you're in the U.S., you can pick up the Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality headset now for $199 at Microsoft.
