    I've seen a lot of products similar to cardboard, anyone out there have one? And would you recommend it?

    If you're looking for something with a strap so you don't have to hold the box up to your head, I usually recommend Merge VR https://www.amazon.com/Merge-VR-Virt...UvrUvbUpU61706

    But if you want something super portable, Homido Mini is crazy thin and folds up for your pocket https://www.amazon.com/Homido-Virtua...UvrUvbUpU61706

    The Homido Mini is crazy small compared to the majority of options on the market. I'm interested in picking one up when I have more time to play with it.

    Well I have A VR Box, it's kinda plastic version of cardboard, I can't say if it's better than cardboard or other headsets since I have not tried any of the others and have no frame of reference, it does seems a little weighty with a Samsung S4 on the nose bridge, it has a sliding door for VR Apps, got it on Ebay fro about 12 bucks with mini blue tooth controller.

    I've tried that one! And I agree, head strap would be useful...

    I picked up this one just after Christmas. It's pretty good for dabbling...

    Cellet VR 3D Glass 360 Panoramic View for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge , Galaxy S6 - Android Virtual Reality - ShopAndroid

    Holds up to a 6" screen size phone, one magnetic switch. Comfortable enough and seems to have a good build quality.

    I have since moved on to an Idol 4S Windows with dedicated headset, but I don't regret this purchase at all.
