The gadget surgeons over at iFixit have wasted no time in delving in the guts of Sony's new PlayStation VR headset, slicing open every little nook and cranny to show off its high-tech innards.
Starting at $399, Sony's PSVR has successfully ushered accessible virtual reality hardware in the mainstream market. Now that the headset is out in the wild, it's time to crack it open and see how its internals fare, and how easy it is to repair. According to iFixit's official PSVR teardown, headset repairs are actually pretty straightforward: the PSVR received a lofty 8 out of 10 in the ease of repairability scale. For comparison's sake, the Oculus Rift CV1 scored a 7 out of 10 on the scale, whereas the HTC Vive scored an equal 8 out of 10.
The teardown is filled to the brim with interesting tidbits on the PSVR, including a close-up look at its highly-touted 120Hz True HD AMOLED display that fairly matches those found in Samsung's high-end flagship phones.
