Wow guys, take it easy We are just a few short steps away from finally getting the Pimax 8K, Xunshu still confirms Q2 shipping and I assume that most of us in here should be excited. Or am I wrong?
This has nothing to do with the brand, the hype, biased or not - we can all agree that 98 out of 100 users that has tested the 8K in any v2-v5 prototype form, can confirm it's way beyond any existing VR headset out there. Not only in terms of FOV but also SDE, resolution, godrays etc.. From what I saw in v2, I have no doubts this headset will be a great unit.
BUT... have in mind we cannot expect a 100% perfect headset, neither during these tests or at launch. There will always be things to improve, just like with any other HMD out there. Lets not forget that, and lets be realistic.
Sure the beta tester team will probably find flaws and the only right thing to do is of course to report all those flaws or issues to the Pimax team. And once closed beta period is over you will all know about it. Full disclosure.
There is nothing to hide, and definitely no reason to lie or pretend. Tester team is there for a reason: Evaluate the unit, hard test it, find possible issues and report them so the Pimax team hopefully gets it fixed. And by testing im not talking about playing around for an hour or two and then do a simple review video or article. We have enough hands-on reviews already...
Now we want to try everything, and KNOW that it works before we even open our mouth. Why? Because thats what all backers are expecting, including myself. No more assumptions, its all about real tests and facts. This is not an advertisement campaign. If the testers lie - every backer will know that once the backer units arrive.
I don't really understand all the scepticism i hear every day. From my point of view, being just another individual consumer (that happens to be an early backer), all I see is a small but very sophisticated company doing hard work developing a next-gen product soon available for everyone - long before any big company even starts to consider doing the same.
Being a VR enthusiast since Vive day 1, Im very excited about this headset - but if it doesn't deliver its promises I will be just as disappointed as any of you, why wouldnt I?
So instead of starting conspiracy theories and paint the walls red, lets wait just a little bit longer, and soon we all know everything.
Having that said, I still gotta admit i dont really understand why the "bad" opinions in previous reviews always are taken more serious than the good ones. For some reason, if me including hundreds of people say "wow" and 5 other persons says "nah", then Im automatically the liar, right? Just think about it for a second...
All I know is that we have something very exciting coming up. More exciting than anythig else. But its ok, you dont have to believe me. Because I smile, right?
