Yes, quite right.
I removed the shudder glass because I thought that the additional brightness would be an advantage. However although the colours were indeed brighter, even at the lowest possible settings it still caused eye tiredness after only a short time of use.
The filter effect of the glass is also necessary I believe to help prevent eye damage as well as reduce some ghosting. So I replaced it after only a few hours and all has been fine since.
Although I probably won't be buying an 8K, it isn't because I don't think that Pimax can deliver on their promises.
Given time, I think they can. It is simply because I don't believe 8k resolution is necessary for great VR experience.
I play a few games that I like and I occasionally watch short 360 videos and my Pimax 4K does what I need very well.
In real life, although we have wide peripheral vision we only really see what is directly in front of us and we follow objects by turning our heads and this is what I do when playing Elite Dangerous etc, and having a wider field of view, I don't think really improve that much on what I have.
Most of the games I play, I play on my 28" pc monitor and I can tell you that the fov is significantly less than my Pimax4K.
The main thing I miss with the 4K is not having reliable hand controllers. So many good games need tracked controllers.
I'm not interested in room scale. The last thing I want to do is stand up when playing a game.
I'm quite happy playing games sitting down and for me, room scale would be a novelty that would quickly off.
I have tried PSMove controllers with PSEye cameras and the experience has been interesting but unusable.
As has the Kinect One sensor. It can work, but poor stability makes it not worth the effort.
I'm hoping that Pimax makes their new tracked hand controllers able to work with the 4K.
I would be interested in buying a set if that was the case.
Before I spend more money on VR, there really has to be some new content that I really want to use that my 4K can't handle.
Realistically, if I can get some tracked hand controllers (not Nolo) for me I think that will probably be in about another year.
But hey! We can all change our minds at the drop of a hat, right?
