    Many other models can be found on Amazon also SOME with straps! That is my biggest complaint about my View-Master!

    Be sure to check other storefronts for Cardboard products. The Viewmaster, for example, is nearly half off at Amazon on a regular basis.

    There are definitely better and cheaper ones out there - you could even make your own if you have access to a printer or something.

    How much would you say a good quality one costs

    Are they sturdy enough? I feel like plastic (maybe printed) would be a better bet.

    A good quality Google Cardboard is around 20$. I purchased my own Google Cardboard for around 3$. The quality is really limited by your screen quality. I have seen various brands sell plastic versions for 100$+

    Sturdy is subjective. I purchased a 3$ Google Cardboard kit from one of those chinese wholesaler websites. It is made out of cardboard and it is good. The only issue is if you wanted to put it in a suitcase or a bag it will get bent unless you flatten it.

    Do it! They're not bad at all. Certain phones will do better than others because screen quality matters a lot more up close. But you can start with a cheap (actual) cardboard headset from Amazon first to see what you think, then if you like it, you can invest in a better (plastic) headset. A more comfortable design and head straps make a huge difference. Also, pro-tip you'll most likely need some kind of controller that is able to tell your phone to click, since the headsets with magnetic buttons tend not to be very reliable, so what I did is just pair my old Bluetooth mouse with my phone, then I was golden.

    I've seen plastic "cardboard" models in the 20-30 dollar range that look decent.

    I'm actually in the market for a cheap, plastic Cardboard set, because I've destroyed my cardboard one.

    It really depends. You can get a decent one made of cardboard for $10, but there are plastic ones out there that are more expensive, not to mention ones built with NFC in mind. It all depends on what you're looking for. To be honest, Gear VR is nothing but a very fancy Cardboard set. Same basic principle.

    I ordered a cheap knockoff from China, and received what I paid for. I might get one of the upscale models someday just to try again.

    I picked up a View-Master on Amazon as a cheap way to try it out and was impressed. It does get old holding it to my head, so I'll be looking to upgrade.

    I used the free Star Wars one that they were giving out through the Play Store around this time last year. I thought it was pretty solid, but I don't think I'd spend any money on it.

    They usually sell cardboard headset at dailysteals around 20$. Haven't tested them yet but seemed like a good deal

    Maybe the cardboard is a good option b before spending money on a bigger more expensive unit. You know, get the feel of how a vr unit works. To see if you will use it, or if it is a fad.

    I bought a Google cardboard... it's sturdy enough for the price.

    My question is how much of a drop off is it from Samsung vr to cardboard, my wife really liked the Samsung vr she tried at an event but we don't have a phone that will run it, hence debating getting her a Google cardboard to try for now.
