Update3: The next video is online now. In this video, I'll show you how to properly install the glasses. Unfortunately, you can do a lot of wrong with the installation, if you do not follow the correct order. After a quick test with the game "ADR1FT" I can already confirm that E2 is very close to the Oculus DK2.

It is interesting that the DeePoon E2 with the Oculus DK2 drivers compatible is. The device is recognized without any modification as DK2 or as DK1. SteamVR should therefore also be possible with these glasses. This is nothing else than a slightly improved clone of the Oculus DK2. Thus, with the DK2 compatible games can also play on the DeePoon E2 VR glasses. In the DeePoon own "App Store" called "3D BoBo"There are also compatible 3D software and games for download. A separate SDK is also available on the manufacturer's website.

So I am more than skeptical of the Chinese manufacturers. There is no review in English yet, so from the US or UK, certainly not from Germany. In the case of a return to China in the event of a warranty claim or simple disagreement means the savings there probably not really expected. In addition, the customs could still strike (right it is!). Well, and I have already tested a DK2 extensively, which has not yet been the yellow of the egg. I think wait or take the OSVR (Razer). German shop, probably limited warranty but, the thing is expandable, you should even be able to upgrade the display when higher resolutions are available. In addition, there is more and more Namhefte manufacturer (Acer) with it.

I agree with you. Customs will probably not be charged if you count the device to the game consoles or smartphones or tablets. With the EUSt you are still just 150 € under a used DK2. But you should just keep in mind that you will hardly get support with the Deepoon E2 and the device does not support positional tracking, unlike the DK2.

Nevertheless, China-VR could become quite interesting this year, as manufacturers are barely investing in marketing and therefore the devices can be sold at a fraction of the price of the known sizes. China smartphones have done it and VR will follow suit. The recently introduced Pico Neo VR glasses have an interesting approach with two OLED panels (1080 × 1200 pixels) per eye. Xiaomi also registered a VR account only a few days ago. You can expect a lot, but currently you should still be patient;).
