Walmart Selling Refurbished 64GB Quest 2 Headsets For $199

A list on Walmart’s website offers a refurbished Quest 2 headset at its lowest price yet, with a few caveats.

The first caveat, of course, is that this is a refurbished standalone VR headset, which means that this hardware was most likely returned to Meta / Facebook / Oculus, for what could be a number of reasons, and is now being resold. These may include previous demo headsets, opened headsets that were returned, or headsets with defective parts that have been replaced and repaired with similar new parts. In any case, refurbished headsets should appear and function like new. Previously, Facebook tested the price of $ 199 for a refurbished original Quest, where the program ensured that there were no visible cosmetic imperfections, no scratches and a 6-month warranty. The refurbished Quest 2 listing on the Walmart site still mentions an “Oculus Limited Warranty one (1) year from the date of purchase or delivery of the Product, whichever is later”

Previously refurbished headsets were sold directly on the Oculus page, but this Quest 2 refurbished offering has only been seen at Walmart.

These 64GB refurbished Quest 2s are the lowest priced version of the headset we’ve seen since release – a whopping $ 100 below the $ 299 base model price when sold as new. Keep in mind that while this refurbished Quest 2 may be cheaper than a brand new system, it also has less storage space. These specific models are the old 64GB SKUs, now phased out of the Quest 2 series and replaced by the updated 128GB model for the same base price of $ 299. So while paying $ 100 less, you also get less storage space than a new base Quest 2 model.

For some people, 64GB of storage may not be an issue, but it’s definitely something to consider as Quest 2 games get bigger and bigger in size. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond hardly fits 64GB Quest 2 and takes up 41GB of space – when you include the storage space occupied by the system software, it does not leave room for much else. Likewise, Resident Evil 4 VR and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners take up 12 GB of space each. If you want to install a lot of Quest 2’s major software draws (and even upcoming mega-titles like GTA: San Andreas) at the same time, then you might want to consider going for a bigger brand new 128GB Quest 2 or even the top end 256GB version priced at $ 399 new.

As the 64 GB models have now been discontinued, these refurbished models may only be available in a limited number. It’s been a little over a year since the 64GB Quest 2 model was launched, so there’s a chance we’ll see refurbished 128GB models later. The original Quest headset was launched in May 2019, but refurbished models for $ 199 only became available in February this year – almost two years after launch.

You can buy the refurbished 64GB Quest 2 from Walmart for $ 199 while stocks last.
