User from the forum 4PDA.ru received 8K in Russia.
I did the translation through google translate. This is not my review.
He has some problems.
The first thing I’m trying to solve now is low resolution. It is felt in the absence of clarity in the image, as well as in the complete unreadability of the fonts in Bigskrina and the virtual desktop. Current settings:
I feel somewhere a dirty trick and conflict.
Otherwise, about the first impression, although it is probably wrong to give them out for the final, because important points are still not resolved. I also remember how many of those who received helmets, at first were not enthusiastic, but then changed their minds.
I’m also in an uncertain state at the moment.
Firstly, the headset straps are inconvenient, the seams are rough and when fitting the straps are in the ear area, respectively, they create pressure and discomfort. (subjective moment)
Secondly, a strong smell, when I ordered a large mouse pad from China, I also encountered a similar smell, weathered it on the balcony for about two weeks.
The face pad smells weaker, while it doesn’t cause any unpleasant sensations, unlike my PIMAX 4K, the pad of which, after prolonged wear, dug the pores of the sponge into the skin of the face. (subjective moment)
The above is not the main thing, of course, given for information.
On lenses, fresnel and that says it all. I clearly see the glare, they are more pronounced if the helmet is tightly fixed on the head, i.e. the eyes are maximal to the lenses, in such a position the illumination goes along the fresnel rings (semicircular highlights). When I remove the helmet, the glare disappears or becomes weaker. They are not the same as in the helmet lenovo, but still exist. Apparently, you need to change the face pad to a more dense one, since the loss in the viewing angle will in any case be insignificant.
Also on the lenses, the wheel of adjustment of the interpupillary distance is not informative, it has idling, it even seems that the reading of the value on the screen of the helmet and the position of the wheel may not coincide, but this is just a guess. By the way, when you scroll the adjustment wheel, the IPD value immediately appears on the screen.
As for the clarity of the image and the adjustment of the helmet in a vertical position on the face, then there is such a moment, you need to raise the helmet more upwards, otherwise the muddy image, probably also the Fresnel heritage.
And the most important thing that disappointed me is the gap between the lenses, I see it and notice that I see it often. This is a thin vertical arc, more pronounced towards the bottom, is almost not noticeable when you look straight, but if you just look to the side, this gap is like a partition between the eyes. Because of this, the sensation of an inseparable whole picture in a helmet is lost. I brought the lenses as close to each other as possible, while the ipd value is displayed as 60, this did not eliminate the septum effect.
The overall picture in the helmet or field of view looks like this:
The borders of the screen and the helmet are visible, the top is smaller, the sides are larger. This is not a pipe, but not a complete view of the view. Does this feeling cause delight? Rather, no, looking at it you understand that the field of view is extended, but apparently due to the fact that on the sides you can see the borders of the helmet and this reduces the effect of full immersion. But it should be noted that the screen already holds more pictures, for example, you can see the entire front part of the cabin, as well as the right mirror of the car in the autostimulator from the cab, which was impossible with other helmets. Senturi has already provided similar information from the reviews of other helmet owners.
As described earlier, there is a blur around the edges of the lenses. In Virtual Desktop applications, these blurring and geometric distortions are expressed very clearly. With a slow turn of the head from side to side, a strange effect can be observed, the picture seems to roll up and unfold from these edges (barrel effect). To this we add geometric distortions, when the rectangle located on the front top when turning the helmet is drawn out at the corners. Straight lines bend. This effect is not pronounced everywhere, it does not appear brightly in the autosumulator in the passenger compartment of the car, but if it stops near a traffic light, then when you turn the helmet, the traffic light will start to bend a little.
Screen-door effect or pixels, I unfortunately see them. I have myopia and therefore what I see close and well. And I begin to see them not only on a light background, for example, the sky, but also on people’s faces, and on everything else. On PiMAX 4K, the Christmas tree pattern appeared on bright colors, otherwise it was necessary to peer. Here is the diagonal pattern.
So the only positive thing I see in this helmet is an extended field of view, it is not so exciting, but it still looks more natural.
edit: Here I sit and think that the letters are blurring suspiciously, it seems that the supersampling was unscrewed and the helmet is sitting tight. I decided to put on my glasses, put on the letters and at once the outlines acquired, they became clearer, the text in Windows Explorer became readable. True, I had previously reduced supersampling for the sake of experiment by 100 and then I put on my glasses, did not plan one for the other, it happened. Still in a virtual desktop I observe ripples. This ripple, as if the overlay in the form of heterogeneous color transfusions on straight lines, was observed similarly after installing the title on top of the pipe on the helmet of pimax 4K. Here, this ripple is also present.
I measure my eyesight in 2005, my left eye: -2.0, right: -1.75, but now I think that it has worsened a bit, as I usually don’t wear glasses. It should be noted that in PiMax 4K and in Lenovo helmets, I did well without glasses, the texts were read normally, I did not have any difficulty.
