I've had my Vive for a couple days now, and I'm overall very impressed. The immersion and tracking is freaking amazing. The excellent tracking makes me want more peripherals that are tracked and visible in VR-- keyboard, mouse, controller. The lack of a mic input is disappointing.
Any introduced input lag or signal degration seen?okay, I've successfully extended the Vive into my living room

Stock earphones are horrible! Poor sound quality & fit. I use some wireless TB 450. They are amazing! Uses RF so no lag, great fit & SQ.I've had mine for almost two months now. It's spent most of its life at my office where I've been working on getting architectural designs into VR (with a fair bit of success). I'm going to be taking it home today since I'm leaving town for a week. I've been really happy with it. I have a fairly large play area in my living room and there's a nice big rug in it that ends a few feet from the wall. I have a 980Ti running it so I've had no issues.
My biggest complaint is the headphones. The right bud has a plastic piece on the wire to let you know it's the right earbud (as opposed to the left bud with nothing on the wire), but that little piece of plastic catches on everything no matter what I do with the cord. It's pretty obnoxious so I'm going to figure out a better audio solution at some point. People have reported good results with these: Amazon.com: Koss PortaPro Headphones with Case: Electronics, and with these: Amazon.com: Panasonic RP-HS46-K SLIMZ Ear-Clip Headphones with Ultra-Slim Housing (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer): Electronics. I may get both a see how they fair.

battle dome is next on my list! Looks very funFavorite sale games have been Solus, Battle Dome, & Chair in the Room. All 3 are "must haves" on the Vive. I really thought Battle Dome looked dumb with its crappy graphics. Boy was i wrong!! One of the funnest games to date!
The graphics look very basic, but oh man it is fun as hell! The color movement technic used in "King of the Hill" mode adds an extra level of strategy than just your basic shooter. The game is a must have for Vive owners.battle dome is next on my list! Looks very fun
Just canceled my Oculus pre-order after picking up one at Microcenter. Showed it to all 4 of my friends who has oculuses. They are simply blown away. This thing is on a whole new level..........

I'm bad - spent like 150$ on games. (bought Doom also)
I think alitte over a 100$ on VR games
Keep Talking an Nobody explodes
The Solus Project
On your recommendations, I Just bought
A Chair in a room
I did the same thing when I got mine. Spent WAY too much money. However, the best VR games you haven't bought...
- Call of the Starseed: The Gallery Part 1. (Kind of pricey for how long it is, but it's by far the best VR experience out there and the most polished)
- Final Approach
- Out of Ammo
- Hot Dogs, Horse Shoes, and Hand Grenades (My favorite Vive title so far. Basically just a gun simulator. Anton Hand the developer updates every Friday with some cool new features, and I subscribed to his YouTube channel b/c he walks you through the updates as well as upcoming news).
- Job Simulator (awesome and funny game. I show this to everyone b/c it's great)
- The Lab (if it didn't come with your Vive it is a must)
- Waltz of the Wizard (free game)
Yea already had Job Sim and Lab
I heard I should wait on Call of the Starseed due to price and bugs.
still thinking about Out of ammo, looks cool.. again already spent a ton thou
