I purchased an Oculus Quest 2 as a gift for a friend about 20 days ago. My friend refused to accept it and returned it to me. It was unopened.
I went today to the local Best Buy store from where I had purchased the item, hoping to return it. The store refused to accept the return, not because it was outside of the 15 day return window, but because the Oculus Quest 2 has been recalled by Facebook. They gave me a number to call at Facebook, which was useless.
I feel like Best Buy ripped me off. Why should I be stuck holding the bag when an item is recalled by the manufacturer? Best Buy is in a much better position to get its money back from Facebook than I am.
This does not seem righ tot me and I will be hesitant to purchase anything in the future from Best Buy.
Interestingly, I could have purchased the same item from Target, at the same price, with a much better return policy.

I gave that Oculus to my niece.
This was never about the $300 for me. It was about a return policy that I felt was wrong and that should be changed.
As for the Oculus, I love it. I play Beat Saber all the time. I use it as a workout. By the time I'm done I've sweated up a storm. Great workout. Very fun game.
Also, I play a round of Walkabout Mini Golf almost every day. What a beautiful game. The scenery is incredible and the company keeps adding new courses at no extra cost. It is super fun.
Just those two games alone make owning an Oculus Quest 2 well worth it.
Finally, I would not worry much about the fabric around the nose. I get what people are saying. It can get a little itchy. But I never got a rash, and it has never been a real problem for me.
Facebook did send me the silicon replacement. It fits great on the devise, and for a low impact game like golf, it is great. But for playing a game like Beat Saber, one where you sweat a lot, the silicon guard causes the lenses to fog up a bit, and causes sweat to pool inside the face mask area. I prefer the original fabric.
