Samsung’s first consumer version of the Gear VR is now available to pre-order for $99.99. That’s half the price of the original developer edition — and the new model is compatible with not just one, but four of Samsung’s latest smartphones.

Developed in collaboration with Oculus, Gear VR gives Galaxy smartphone owners the ability to transform their device into a virtual reality headset. You simply stick your phone inside it, slap it on your face, and you’re good to go.

Gear VR makes its debut on November 20, and will come bundled with a 16GB microSD card loaded with 3D movie trailers and 360-degree videos, plus access to Netflix, Hulu, and Twitch. Support from TiVo and Hulu is also on the way.

According to those who managed to get their hands on Gear VR when it was announced back in September, the new headset is a huge improvement over the original, and delivers an impressive virtual reality experience.

If you want to get in on that, you can pre-order yours from Best Buy now by following the source link below. The device is compatible with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5.
