I've been a computer hardware enthusiast ever since purchasing my first Atari 800 computer back in High School (yes, I'm probably older than most people here). So this isn't my first new electronics rodeo. I have a pretty good idea of how these things develop. Everything I've posted is simply my opinion. If other evidence surfaces, I may end up changing how I feel. But for now, I can easily see Pimax releasing the 5K/8K headsets sometime this summer, the full package 5K/8K and the 8K X sometime later. Possibly late summer/early fall. After that, the stretch goal components.
Nothing ever goes as smoothly as planned. As long as Pimax remains committed to quality rather than release date, I'll remain content for now. I have nearly $1K wrapped up in my pledge. And within my budget, that's a really good sized chunk of money. So I would rather get my headset later and in good working condition than receive a half-baked product sooner and be stuck with it that way forever.
