I see that you have calmed down, that is good. Hopefully Sweviver will too.
On my statements - I am judging the situation based on the facts I have at my disposal. That is what I consider to be a reasonable approach to a situation with conflicting statements.
I see one person who is letting people know that he is really enthusiastic about the 8K, while mentioning that they are still working on issues. So he is very excited about the potential of the 8K, but I don't recall that he ever stated any expectation of readiness for an imminent release. This is the part I see you interpreting into his statements, where I do not read the same.
And MRTV, who typically is a bit less enthusiastic as a character than Sweviver, two weeks ago or so expressed his growing excitement, and made the famous "the Samsung is awful in comparison" statement.
To me, factoring in their respective natural happy bunny level, that is pretty much on the same level as Sweviver. But - to me - both are addressing the potential of the 8K while still pointing out that there remains work to do.
And then, please let me address this: both of you have taken this too far already, but I think this statement stands out a bit:
I do not know how you meant what you wrote, but to me it sure reads as if there is a subtle threat hidden in this statement. Firstly that you have means at your disposal to (likely illegally) hack your way into protected systems in which personal data on your adversary is contained (although he actually mentioned his job publicly not long ago), and one could even read into the statement that you might use your powers to get him into trouble with his employer. And reading it with the context of the current discussion, where his performance at his job is not relevant at all, and you are clearly mad at him, doesn't make it any better.
This is a point where I draw a line. We are talking about a VR headset. To many of us here this is nothing but a toy. A very coveted toy, true, but still a toy. Nobody, even if disagreeing completely with the views of another user, even when suspecting that that person is deliberatly misrepresenting facts on the toy discussion, should start to make that sort of statements.
I am 99,999% certain that you yourself, once you have cooled down, will regret that statement, because from what I have seen in this forum so far you may be an ever pessimistic mierenneuker (whose girl-friend better be damn perfect or else she will probably already have platinum status with the local shrink because you will point out every little flaw she has) but otherwise seem to be a reasonable, likeable character.
And I actually would say the same about Sweviver, just without the part with the ants. He probably has quite different standards than you and some others have, sure. But also factor in that people accommodate to flaws so that they start to ignore them and can enjoy an objectively flawed device almost as much as if they didn't exist. After all, he seems to be the guy who spent much more time with this M1 than any other tester, so I could see this being an issue of accommodation - why did Pimax themselves release it to the testers thinking it was good to go ? Perhaps exactly because they accmmodated to the flaws and cannot see them anymore (as big issues).
And then perhaps there is some wild variation between the M1's and he simply recieved a unit which was better calibrated, built.
There may be different reasons for different perceptions here.
Where I tend to agree is that Sweviver should not have communicated his enthusiasm so much, but only because they were not supposed to communicate about the state of the 8K at all, so saying that it is not complete crap was already a statement. That would have saved him a load of heated arguments here.
But okay, so I will go back to Helio's statement and hope, just hope, that September may bring us good news.
