The present study assesses the usability of a desktop virtual reality system in the light of individual differences and sense of presence. The issues we focus on are the performances achieved for spatial tasks and the induced level of satisfaction. The results indicate the impact of each considered variable upon time demanded to accomplish task but not upon its accuracy. Findings also indicate genderbased and presence-based differences upon user’s satisfaction with the system.
