My husband and I both jumped in at launch and purchased two Vives. Room scale VR with tracked controllers is amazing, and well worth saving up for! I could go on and on and gush, but really it's like everyone says: describing it never fully conveys the awesome. Trying it out is essential to fully appreciate it.
I will caution that having some solid PC savvy is highly desirable to ensure a smooth gen one VR ownership experience. If you're already comfortable as a PC gamer and are hardware knowledgeable, you're a good way there.
