Acer AH101 review

The Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset (or Acer AH101) is a tethered virtual reality headset by Acer, a multinational computer technology manufacturer from Taiwan.

This PC VR headset runs on the Windows Mixed Reality platform. However, this range of headsets is in the VR category. The series of Windows MR VR headsets also includes devices from Dell, Asus, HP, and Lenovo, which are all very similar.

Acer’s virtual reality headset features 6DoF and inside-out tracking. Therefore, the technology of the device offers an immersive VR experience for the user. In addition, users can check their PC compatibility with the Acer VR headset by using a simple Windows Mixed Reality PC Check.

Some users complain that the “screen-door effect” is not obvious but still visible. There are also some user concerns over the comfort of the VR headset around the nose.

However, critiques from users show that the Acer mixed reality headset is one of the best PC virtual reality headsets in the Windows Mixed Reality headset range.
