Anyone else ordered the 8KX but wants the 8K and send it back before the 8KX arrives since the 8K is coming out in June(Maybe)?


I pretty much expected delays so I am not shocked.

The 8KX does seem like it’s going to be coming out in 2019 or something though.


I’m betting as soon as they lock down the 8K design they will master the X pretty quick. The optics is their biggest challenge at the moment


If the problems of the Bridge chip were due to temperature and Pimax studies changing the “hardware structure” of the 8K, using the two bridge chips of the 8K X can be more problematic.


I’m expecting a similar gap between 8K and X as was originally planned, so yeah I’d still like the 8K loaner while waiting ~6months for the X


While that would be a sweet deal, I would not expect an entirely free unit as compensation for kickstarter reward delay no matter how long. (even as a loaner, they loose that “new” unit).

What are they supposed to do just eat all the new units revenues ? and still give you another one too. I think it would be more likely to get your order changed to the 8k Instead of the 8kx if you do not want to wait, or speak to them about a refund option. I just cannot see them sending out fresh clean 8k units as loaners. Would be sweet for you 8kX guys/gals but… I would be surprised, very surprised if they allowed that.


Pimax has already offered an 8K loaner unit for X backers. It was in the survey "do you want to recieve a loan 8K unit before shipping the X

They also offered that 8K X backeres can keep their loan 8K unit if they dont want the X can recieve a credit for the difference to be used on the Pimax store


I remember that, that was a long time ago. Many details have fallen to the wayside… and promises are not contracts. I would still be very surprised if this ever happened. It sounds good to say it to a customer, when you do not think you will need to really do it. now that the deadlines are pushed so far back. I doubt you will hear it again … just my instinct/opinion as it makes no sense financially to do that.
