That‘s the point, I am afraid. If the poor man‘s choice is what 99,9% of the gamers are able/willing to sacrifice for a headset (knowing that it will only last 2-3 years until something even better lurks on the shelves), it is great to exist for the chosen few who don‘t have to worry about the price tag, but will not really compete with those who fall within the accepted enthusiasts price range. Possibly 5 years from now we will be used to paying substantially more for our adventures to the virtual worlds, because the technology takes off and you have all sorts of great but expensive options and it is a commodity people accept to pay more for, but we are not there yet, are we.
However, the point which they made fun of Pimax about is actually one of the two correlating points I am not excited about with this headset:
„FoV is extremely high“
With their resolution, I actually wouldn‘t want this excessive FoV, if I had the choice. With the expected price tag I don‘t have to consider it anyhow, but if it were available for say 1,500, I would struggle. But of course it would be best just to have the chance to try it out.
One important positive point you forgot to mention is the full compatibility with SteamVR.
