To be clear, the Pimax BE model is what I preferred over the Odyssey. IF the 4k model was brighter and didn't have the ghosting it would have Beat The Pants Off of the Odyssey! The resolution and corresponding color vibrance of the 4k is just stunning, really can't see a screen door, but I no longer have a 4k model, returned after 10 days, because of darkness and ghosting. I picked up Odyssey before returning the Pimax 4k because the Odyssey was better.
But I say again, the Pimax BE model had a better image than the Odyssey, they have the same resolution, but the Odyssey does not have Brain Warp tech, which definitely makes a difference, and the Odyssey has the stupid idiot fresnel lenses with the godrays included. The 4k and BE models did have that myopic issue too, but I put on readers to deal with it just fine.
If Pimax 8k delivers the 4k resolution into each eye (remember, covering a wider FOV), with a brighter screen, no ghosting, larger sweetspot (which may be some of why I don't like godrays), no myopic lens issues, physical and software IPD adjustment, an FOV that takes me out of the scuba mask and into the scene, maintains the build quality (which is different than engineering, which is Also Different than the sourcing, what quality is available to them from current vendors), maintains the same level of engineering, and meets all their sourcing needs based on the highest desired specs, the 8k is going to be what many are pining for, including me.
Love your videos. Need someone who tests things out for us like you do! Thanks!
