I was a huge Mixed Reality sceptic, right up until recently.
We picked up a HP Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) Headset from Microsoft for me to review and trial, and while WMR is still firmly what I'd call an "early adopter" experience, I'm now a believer in the future of this paradigm, if Microsoft and its OEM partners can iron out the problems.
At this point, I have only used HoloLens, PlayStation VR, HP's WMR headset, Dell's Visor WMR headset, with a brief amount of time with Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive at various trade shows. Some of the issues I've had with HP's headset is more to do with their design choices, rather than Mixed Reality itself, but it shows that Microsoft still needs to take a firm grip over how OEMs build these experiences to ensure early adopters and regular consumers get a decent experience. Still, this is a great (and affordable) first attempt from HP.
