To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Basically a waste of money. VR ready PC does not recognise Oculus Quest 2 as being connected - via USB C port which tests ok with mem stick. Does not recognise headset being connected via working USB 3.0 port with C-A adapter. Get the genuine article they said :( no Steam yet. Virtual Desktop sideloaded to Sidequest isnt recognising the headset on the wireless network either. Painful process to go through, especially trawling forums for fixes, which this cable was supposed to mitgate.
I bought the expensive official cable so that if PC Link worked badly and I criticised it in reviews, the fan boys couldn't ride shotgun for Oculus by saying "ah but you used a cheap cable".
As it happens, it does work well! I did the speed test and it came back at 2.1 to 2.2gbps or whatever the unit of measurement was.
It doesn't click nicely into the port on my PC but does when I plug that end into the Quest 2. Yet other cables do click firmly into my PC. So I've strapped it to other cables coming out of my PC so that it doesn't get nudged out.
It works well. This is a review of the cable and not PC Link but the image quality is impeccable and the latency is no different to playing natively on the Quest 2's build in CPU.
Being tethered isn't ideal but it's a lot better than the triple thickness cable on the Vive. If you use your brain, you can put the cable over your shoulder and down your back in such a way that it doesn't inhibit game play. I tend to turn with the pad anyway so I'm always facing in one direction (in the real world) and the cable behind me has no impact.
One thing to note, the battery still drains when playing with this cable. The USB port can't provide enough power to run the headset so some drain will occur, only no where near as great when running on battery alone.
It doesn't get a 5 star review due to the disgraceful pricing, but would if half the price.
well I wasnt expecting much from this, but maybe I was expecting too much. Well got the cable well packaged and delivered when advised. Took the cable out and whilst I knew it was usb c at both ends from the images (who thought that was a good idea?) I was expecting there to be a suitable adapter so it could be plugged into a USB3 port. Guess what, there wasnt, so I have a nice cable that I cant use as I dont have a usb c port on my pc without buying an adapter
Get a high quality router and Virtual Desktop for the same price and enjoy a fully wireless experience or buy the cheaper Anker cable for £30. This cable works great, but no better than other solutions.
Its a lot of money, more fool me for buying it, cheaper ones available. Check you have the appropriate connections. So far seems to be of little real use. It connects the Oculus Quest 2 to my PC when you've downloaded the app. Like the Quest it comes with little in the way of helpful information. Found out about the app by doing an internet search. I've yet to find anything that makes it worth buying in the first place. VR content appears linked to individual sites like Steam. You have to have bought the game there to play in VR. Perhaps as time goes by the market will open up. At the mo' it's a thumbs down.
is it worth the price? No. Plus I needed to install a USB-C card in my pc. I actually get a better experience using virtual desktop software for playing my PC VR games to the quest 2. On the plus side, it does charge and 90hz will hopefully come once out of beta for the cable. But even so, 89 for a cable is bonkers. A good usb-a cable seems to work well enough, try that first.
I have a 2080ti so i have a type c on back of the card but keeps disconnecting and black screen. The desktop still works and can see the game and even when i move head set but still black screen in the head set. I have to close the game down and start up again. I no its only in beta for the cable but for 89,99 you think it would work when i reach above recommended specs.
This is one of those things where you get what you pay for. Having bought a cheaper alternative that claims it's "This is the next best alternative to the official Oculus Quest Link Cable." I can categorically state that it isn't. In this case there's nothing better than the genuine article. I know it's not the cheapest but there's a reason for that. If you want to enjoy your expensive Oculus Quest 2 headset on a PC you'll want to get this cable. You can always try the WiFi 6 method but that's another kettle of fish altogether.
