Oculus Quest 2 Disappointment

I’ve had the Oculus now for a month and it’s terrible for the very basic thing I needed to do. vSpatial is garbage and so is immerse. I just need it to be my 360 degree monitor. All I need it to do is emulate desktops and they can’t even do that. I’ve reached out to Oculus’ tech support and the respond like monkeys and bots. They recommend you go to social media for help. You cannot find any instructions online on how to actually use the product. Just fan boys telling you how good it is. The application is mainly aimed at trying to sell you virtual reality content. I rarely play games on my computer or devices.

Every time I pick up the Oculus Quest 2 to use it, instead of getting anything done. I actually just wind up troubleshooting it. I turn it on and the Bluetooth connection isn’t working. A plain Bluetooth keyboard does work but, I have to reconnect it every time I turn the device on. The K830 desktop keyboard that is suppose to work with it simple does not. Once again… I reached out to tech support which is just ridiculous. I’ve never liked Logitech products, Facebooks Oculus made me go out and get an Logitech K830 keyboard that just never worked.

I turned on the Oculus today and realized somehow passthrough mode is gone. I can’t imagine why you would remove passthrough mode. I can’t image any of the other professional applications actually work but I will figure out over time. I’ve noticed that in the oculus subreddit all the do is advertised. Same thing in the Oculus Quest 2 subreddit, just more fan boys and adds. The Oculus is not for serious people.

I offer my experience as accurately as possible. I always encourage anyone to contact me and or to prove me wrong. I treat being wrong as an opportunity to learn. I love to hear your experience.

On My Oculus Quest 2

So I decided to buy an Oculus the other day. More for virtual office and vSpatial than anything else. I got the K830 keyboard a week later and have been trying to configure it since.  I tried to find some online help and right away I noticed how little information there was on anyone actually configuring it.  Cas and Chary VR are more requirement at no point does she demonstrate or walk you through how she actually set it up.   This guy point’s out some but not all the issues.  You see, I’m curious to see someone take it out of a box and actually configure it.  He didn’t actually show you everything either.  

I contact Oculus support and they also fell way short of my expectations.  The basicially told me turn it of and turn it back on again worse through an email :-\.  My specific point to him was “The K830 keyboard that I order from logitech comes with a separte Bluetooth device intended to go into a computer. How was that ever suppose to work with the Oculus Quest 2.”  One reddit channel is now saying that there are two different K830. I’m not even sure how accurate that is.

But how could I have chose the wrong thing when the I followed the link from the official Oculus website to the Logitech’s website to purchase the product? When it came with Logitech’s proprietary bluetooth USB device I was worried right away if/how it would work.

It’s really bad that they encourage you to use social media before giving any help in this way.  They should be tracking these problems better not social media.

Sometimes the Internet can be the place where idiots gather to agree. Even if you feel like I’m one of those idiots please help.
