Hi jonnypanic, I ordered a Lenovo Explorer WMR, it should arrive in a couple of days; since I've tried the 4k and had sent it back after experiencing some hard to solve problems with the lens and ipd , I could do a review and in-depth comparison of the two headsets and write my impressions here .
Having had a number of headsets (Deepon E2, Oculus DK2, PS VR, Pimax 4k) I can say that the quality of the display resolution in the 4k was the highest ever seen, but the lens and bad assembly of some units really made it almost unusable to far sighted or unlucky people who got a bad assembled lens unit....this is very unfortunate I think, as Pimax could have been able to sell many more 4k units if these problems were solved or professionally taken care of by their tech support.
Sebastian Ang of Mixed Reality TV on youtube said that the Lenovo Explorer is probably the best WMR headset for the price point, having its strenght in:
- Comfort and lowest weight of all the WMR headsets.
- Reasonable quality LCD screen and good quality lens.
- Lowest price (FYI currently on sale at just $199 on Microsoft store US)
- Reasonably good controllers tracking.
Only known problem with most WMR headsets seems to be the IPD range, it is known not to be suitable if you have it very far away from the standard value of 64, for the mayority of people it's okay but if you have IPD values of over 67 or lower than 62 then most WMR headsets are not recommanded as there is no manual IPD adjustment, except in the Samsung Odyssey.
I will tell you more as soon as I have thoroughly tested the Lenovo Explorer myself.
