The AVA Omni VR Desktop launched just last week in as our first AVADirect Signature Series, and it’s already received gleaming reviews around the tech industry highlighting our VR specific gaming desktop.

To be honest, I’m super impressed in what AVADirect has done here. They haven’t just slapped together a PC with a video card that is capable of 1080p at 75FPS minimum, they have specifically chosen each part to match the other. Everything is mixed together in a green-and-black color scheme just like the Virtuix Omni, and NVIDIA hardware. On top of that, you’re getting a stress-tested system that ensures ultimate stability, with a price that will not break that VR presence.” – , TweakTown
