@CMM is saying that in his opinion Pimax thought the v5 prototype shown at CES was actually fine and ready for mass production as is, and were then stumped by the negative feedback from backers who had considerably higher expectations.
I understand his post in that he hopes Pimax haven’t ordered significant quantities of components required for a v5-based final product which wouldn’t meet backers‘ expectations and that their necessary pivot wouldn’t be financially aggravated by fulfillment clauses for components they wouldn’t be able to use.
I have to say, I don‘t disagree with that this could be a real possibility; there already seems to be some such situation with the component or combination of components that is stopping them from achieving 90hz although I have to admit that we haven’t been updated on this particular issue since way into last year.
Personally I am utterly disappointed with Pimax‘s communication throughout the last months, and if I hadn’t already spent €700+ on them I would have stopped caring a long time ago. As it stands I feel burned not by their inability to keep deadlines, but by their infrequent one-liners on this Forum and hence how little value they attribute to their backers.
It’s shameful and disrespectful.
