So far what I saw from different people on youtube was not a critical review but rather an individual test which either resulted in the reviewer being pleased or not depending how the headset fit to HIM.
I am not really interested in knowing that someone was blown off by the detail, or that the particular HMD did not make him sick (or it did), because these are all very subjective observations. Would I be blown off by the detail if I wear glasses and therefore use different pupil to lens distance than the reviewer, would I enjoy the same FOV for the very same reason? Will I see clearly even with IPD equal to 72 mm, while the reviewer's IPD was 64 mm? Am I sensitive to the motion sickness in the same way as he is? How should I then assess the review results which only focuses on experience which is very subjective to the reviewer's physics and psychics?
I would very much like to see someone to address the review in a critical way:
- Is the reviewer capable of verifying that IPD works as advertised in the complete range?
- Is the reviewer capable of verifying that people with glasses can use it equally well as those without?
- Is the reviewer capable of verifying that refresh rate is stable at 80Hz, and detect when reprojection kicks in? And if it does, describe the root cause?
- Is the reviewer running the tests with several different basestation configuration and cables?
- Is the reviewer capable of measuring technical parameters in a reproducible way?
- Is the reviewer capable of running some benchmarks and diagnostics (e.g. FCAT) and understands the output and can interpret it correctly?
- Is the reviewer capable of describing the rendering pipeline Pimax HMD uses and confirm the overall latency, render buffer requirements, and draw the conclusion regarding the requirements required from the graphics card in terms of rendering power and/or memory?
If someone does all that then I could to draw informed conclusion about the usability for my case.
Is anyone from those who applied for M1 review (@SweViver, @VoodooDE, and others) up to those tasks?
