I don’t actually include you in the apologists. You took on the role the community asked you to and do try to keep things smooth and positive. You are still willing to say pimax have fallen down on occasions.
Others may well choose vive LHs and controllers but unfortunately we got suckered into pimax ones that no one is expecting soon. The solution of go and buy another is an admission, conscious or not, that they are not expecting pimax to deliver soon…even a 3rd party cable they will buy off the shelf so to speak.
