the biggest difference is, oculus had never made an item before they made the kickstarter...
Pimax already did..so they will deliver eventually that you should not fear.
I believe they don't want it to be another 4k pimax with the many issues at launch...and most of them did get fixed eventually. they fixed the drifting, ghosting also was less, and don't forget its a 300$ hmd...with almost no sde etc
in manyways its further ahead then vive and oculus and in some ways its behind.
i think this time they want to come close to what they promised at launch and not fix it 1 year later.
So they changed lenses etc this had to be tested again etc, new problems might arise etc.
I do believe they are doing a good quality control and it does take long. SO with M1 they send out to some backers and get more feed back. because different people..different eyes/different things that might come up.
Some people are more sensitive to A then C..but if you would it to be tested by the same group, you may only discover issue A in testing phase and C would not even be detected because the people that tested are totally not sensitive to this C/D or whatever problem.
I believe we will get a very decent product and it might be worth the wait. thats what my logic is saying.
They don't do it on purpose, they do it with a reason to delay, and the reason is not to betray the backers etc.
The reason is they want also make a product that gonna last for a while and make name for themselves.
Theywill learn a lot in this production and if they nail it..i look forward for their next HDM and i'm not talking about 8k X.
because if the new 1000-2000ppi screens are mainstream by 2020-2021 i do count pimax to be one of the first to push the ppi out vs western/corp that like to use crumble tactics and release small upgrades at a time.
Most of us already know flat screens cell phone already exist for at least 2 years..the technology i speak about..yet
there is a reason they don't release it mainstream...and it has all to do with $$ and milking.
first let the world adopt the720p screens, then the 1080p screens, then the 1440p screens then the 2160p screens
And when those screens (2160p) starttaking too much battery life..time to bring in the flat screens and the new battery etc...thats how this shitty world $$ works
