I am thinking of using TrackIr with rf2 for better immersion effect. I have a 27 inch monitor. Does anybody have any thoughts about the value and efficiency of this product?

Not everyone gets on with head tracking, it can be disorienting for some users, so I would suggest going down the DIY route or try this super cheap but surprisingly effective option first.......

The quality is ****, it's not RF2 and it goes on a bit, but you get the idea. This is why I love trackIR, able to look around and get involved in the enviroment

tbh, I have tried many of the alternatives from time to time. None of them are a patch on the the TrackIR camera.

I didn't get on with it, primarily because I can't sit still. My head moves around too much and I can't stop doing it. Immersion was good, but the feeling of turning my head, whilst keeping my eyes on the monitor was strange. I tried it for quite a while, but I was slower. Some people say it's more intuitive with triple monitors though. Personal taste IMO. I'd try a free version first, or buy used so that you can resell without losing much if necessary.

Been using trackir with a 34 inch ultrawide monitor and thought that was amazing... Recently upgraded to a 49 inch super ultrawide curved 3840x1080p....
Now my trackir experience is ABSOLUTELY amazing! Now when I turn my head to look at apex or check whos beside me, its MUCH more natual feeling. I've always recommended trackir with at least 34 inch ultrawide monitor. Anything smaller might give you headaches and neck strain because you are turning your head away from the screen, while your eyes are straining to look at the screen. Trackir so underrated, ultrawide (34 inch minimum) makes trackir really shine

I cannot stop ED Tracker from drifting. It would be fantastic otherwise. Collecting dust now :(

Don't know if it can help, i solved the drifting problems by changing the USB cable
