no its not the best analogy, but maybe i should not even expect criticism on HTC on a pimax forum hahaha
And maybe the difference lies that pimax has to raise funds? and HTC doesn't.
At least as backers we have a tracking on how things develop before final product, that in itself is nice. Maybe 1% of our feedback reach the devs.
All by all i don't think any of us lost money in this project, we just need to have patience, we also got some nice extra add ons for free.
And at the end of the day, if you don't like the item, you can always sell it, there will be plenty people waiting to get one i believe, if they can grab one before international launch im sure people will
