Many of the VR enthusiasts among our readers shared their thoughts on the technology with us over the past few weeks via Twitter, in the hopes of winning the Gear VR headset we happen to have lying around the office.

We’ve gone through the tweets, and we must say, for the most part you guys seem quite enthusiastic about the tech and had some great things to say about it.

Wayne Warren’s sentiment echoed the reason I am personally so excited about it:

SP van Zyl said what we’re all thinking:

Yule poked a bit of fun at the idea:

While neither DappingThruLife nor On_the_Phipps_Side were quite as enthused:

So there are plenty of opinions on it out there, and we’re glad you guys shared so many of yours with us. Thanks!

But you don’t care, you just want to know who won… so here goes. And just to re-reiterate, the prize on offer here is the headset alone – we’re not also giving away a Samsung Galaxy S6.

Our random draw technology randomly selected @gareth6pike as our winner. Congrats, Gareth! We will be in touch soon to sort out the logistics of getting the headset to you.

The rest of you, check back with us soon as we’re sure to put on another competition in the coming weeks.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
