Oculus Quest is one of the best, if not the best, standalone VR headsets you can own. But it works well as a wireless VR headset, but the ability to connect it to your PC to play even more games is a killer feature. But you had to buy expensive cables. It is up to now.
Oculus Link lets you connect your Oculus Quest to your computer to access other VR content like the ones in the Steam Store. It effectively turns your Quest into tan Oculus Rift.
But Facebook (which owns Oculus) recommended high-speed cables to make it happen. And the company sells an $ 80 fiber-optic cable that it says provides the best experience. But even if the high price is not a problem, it is difficult to find it in stock at best.
Now, thanks to a new update of Oculus PC software, you do not have to buy an expensive cable. You can use any cable, including the cable that came with the Oculus Quest ̵1; if your computer has a USB-C connection.
Oculus Quest Charging Cable is a long USB 2.0 cable with USB-C at both ends. While you may find that USB 2.0 is too slow to be useful for VR, people at UploadVR have already tested and say it works surprisingly well.
You will probably have the best experience with a USB 3.0 cable, or Facebook's fiber optic cable. But if you do not want or can not spend extra money, why not use a free cable?
Your other option is to buy Virtual Desktop from the Oculus store, but then download it from SideQuest. Then you can use Steam VR wirelessly. But there is a delay, and you have through hoops. Using your existing cables is free and easy.
If you connect a USB 2.0 cable, you will receive a warning that it may not be the best experience. But you can still go ahead and play. The Oculus Quest store is constantly growing. But if you own the VR headset, now is a good time to extend the games you can play with the cable you already have.
