This Black Friday VR deal is a double whammy as the Meta Quest 2, an affordable and reliable headset is $50 off and you can claim a $50 gift card with your purchase too. We like this headset a lot and it features in our best VR headsets guide.

Grab the Meta Quest 2 256gb VR headset for $299.99 ($50 off) and claim a $50 gift card when you get it from B&H Photo Video.

In our Meta Quest 2 review we found it performs extremely well, especially for the price point. It's convenient as it doesn't need wires, it's compact and comfortable to wear and it has access to a huge range of titles, both Meta native and from SteamVR and PCVR. This Meta Quest 2 is the more powerful 256gb model, as opposed to the 128gb model. The Quest 2 has been surpassed recently by the more recent Meta Quest 3. But, that does mean the Quest 2 is now even more affordable, even before the Black Friday discount, and it still boasts decent specs.

The specs are detailed below but if you want more great virtual reality content this Black Friday, why not check out our VR headsets deals hub?

So what exactly is it that makes this deal worth getting? Well, the Meta Quest 2 is known for being an affordable entry point into the world of VR and now it's even more affordable. It has good resolution, making visuals look impressive. It feels comfortable to wear and it has access to a huge range of both games and experiences. It's not the highest spec model on the market but it is impressive and it offers a lot for the price you pay, especially now with a further $50 saving and a gift card with your purchase.

Key Specs: 256GB of storage, 1832 × 1920 per eye resolution, 60, 72, 90 Hz (120 Hz experimental) refresh rate, touch controllers, 89-degree field of view, hundreds of Meta native titles and can play SteamVR and PCVR titles.

Consensus: This is a great affordable entry into the world of VR and now it's made even more affordable with the saving. There is a newer version of this model, the Quest 3, which surpasses some of the specs but the Quest 2 is still fun, reliable and now even more affordable.

Buy if: You want a VR headset to experience what virtual reality has to offer and the fact that this isn't the latest model doesn't bother you.

Don't buy if: You want the latest model or even a higher-spec headset and you don't want to buy something from Meta.

Alternative models: If the Meta Quest 2 isn't quite right for you then we would recommend either the Meta Quest 3 or the HP Reverb G2. Both cost more but both offer some higher specs.
