DPVR E3 Polaris review

The DPVR E3 Polaris is a tethered VR headset for PC made by DPVR, a manufacturer formerly known as Deepoon, and based in China. This headset also goes by the name Deepoon E3 Polaris.

The E3 Polaris comes with two lightweight Polaris controllers (151 g each) and a Polaris tracking system. This virtual reality headset is only compatible with SteamVR, while another product from the same manufacturer, the DPVR E3-C is compatible with DK1, DK2, and VRonline. However, the E3-C doesn’t come with controllers.

The overall critique from users are good, they especially appreciate the image quality and the anti-blue light lenses. Users also enjoy the resistant and lightweight design as well as the long cables (16 m). It is also possible to play multiplayer with the large 5 x 5-meter room scale.

On the other hand, there are some ghosting effects when playing.

E3 Polaris main features

  • Eye-friendly Samsung AMOLED panel (2560 x 1440): It has minimal screen door and afterglow effects.
  • SteamVR compatible: users have access to hundreds of VR experiences and games on this content platform.
  • Comfortable headset for the user: the HMD’s lightweight design (315 g) reduces pressure on the user’s face. The VR headset features an adjustable strap as well as IPD adjustment. Also, users may wear the device over spectacles.
  • Dizziness prevention: the 16ms latency provides a better and more comfortable user experience, avoiding VR sickness.
  • Polaris tracking system and controllers: the tracking system is precise, has a wide range and is easy to install.
