Lenovo Explorer


Lenovo's Explorer headset is one of the first Windows Mixed Reality devices, combining virtual reality with augmented reality for an immersive experience.

Wireless room tracking. Comfortable.

Requires powerful PC. Pricey.

The Lenovo Explorer will be available in October for $349 on its own, or $449 in a bundle with the motion controllers. Check back then for a full review.

Lenovo Explorer


Good hardware paired with in-progress software. Lenovo Explorer.

Solid design ; Decent tracking ; Easy setup

SteamVR support still a work-in-progress ; Strap is a little rigid

The Lenovo Explorer is a great piece of hardware, partially let down by work-in-progress software.

Lenovo Explorer preview: The best-fitting Windows Mixed Reality headset yet


If there's a theme at this year's IFA show - that's the largest technology show in Europe, if you're not in the know - then it has to be Windows Mixed

Overall, the Lenovo Explorer is a comfortable vision of what Windows Mixed Reality can be. We still think the Windows solution is easy-to-setup virtual reality rather than true mixed reality, but ignore that and focus on the core experience and there's...

Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality Headset Review: A Low-Cost VR On-Ramp


Lightweight ; Removable headband cushions ; Small enough for children to wear

Build quality, in parts ; No adjustment possible for IPD ; Too small for large heads

As an easy-to-use headset that runs on modest hardware (by VR standards), the Explorer is a solid-enough choice. And if you’re looking for a headset to share with your kids, we’re not aware of a PC-connected VR device that will fit better.

Lenovo Explorer review: Hands on with Lenovo’s MR headset


The best chance VR has at going mainstream, as long as the problems are ironed out

In terms of pure hardware, what Lenovo has managed to build with the Lenovo Explorer is truly impressive. It’s incredibly lightweight and wonderfully comfortable and, at £399 for headset and controllers, it’s an absolute steal.

When it works it does work well

If you need to use a mini display port then the HDMI cable needs an active adapter. The adapters are hard to fit on the HDMI cable (I tried two Microsoft recommended brands) and cause a "crunching" sound as you attach them.
