TechNein Posted June 12, 2020 Share Posted June 12, 2020 Pretty much as the title suggest. The Vive will be my last HTC product. Back when I first purchased my Vive in mid 2018 I had to have everything replaced because I got faulty equipment from where I purchased it. This included my base stations, which one is now not working again. I have no clue when, why, or even how it decided to just stop working but I did not get the red light like others do when there base stations mess up. This only serves to amp up my frustrations because I have no clue what the issue with it is in the first place. I am a college student, and my vive is set up at my home where I use it on my breaks. So for what reason did my base station mess up when it has been mounted to the wall since the first replacement and not even plugged in when I am at my school? I don't use it during my semesters, during 2019 winter break it was fine, but once covid-19 happened and all the students were sent home it just stopped working. It could have no earlier than January but I did not find out that my VR was messed up until March when I came home and did not find out my base station was the issue until last week. I talked to support and tried everything to at least find out what was wrong with it and I still don't know. But I was given 2 options, buy a new one or pay $90 to have it fixed AGAIN, but the best I got was free shipping. Now it is sitting in repairs waiting for me to send my money and I am just looking at all the horror stories of how they want more than just $90 to fix. I just want to use my VR but this is just crazy. I did nothing to cause my base station to mess up, and I don't even know what the problem with it is! After this I'm done with HTC, It sucks because up until now I loved this product, but getting ripped off for this repair or buying a new one completely is the only two options they gave me in the end. I can only wonder when the next time my base station wants to break for the 3rd time and so on. Sorry for the rant but this situation has made me frustrated, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
