New HP 4K HMD $599

accessory

#598

Great idea man. Good luck. I keep thinking it would be great to see a company use a mirror to overlay one panel on top of another, like Varjo. Imagine the Pimax FOV with an HD zone in the middle of the FOV.

recieved mine today. Went through many updates on windows 10 pro. The mixed reality portal works but its a no go on steamVR. It doesnt recognize that an HMD is connected. Very little instructions come with this thing. Any support forums for it?

You need to install mixed reality for steam… search for it in the steam shop

and Boom. it works. Thankyou


#602

Interesting, didn’t know they were shipping, all sites seem to still have them as ‘sold out’. Where did you order yours, directly from HP?

#604

Amazon. The order went from “we dont know the shipping date” to “out for delivery” OVERNIGHT!

My review is its hot. Its not nearly as comfortable as the 5k+ with vive DAS, The field of view is dissappointing after getting used to the 5K+. Especially vertically. It will be on ebay soon. This seals the deal for me. Im selling it and a GEAR VR I had. Its pimax 5k+ for me and the next one I own will be an 8K and that will only be when the graphics card prices come way down.

Personally I don’t care too much about (extremely) wide FoV, I prefer higher resolution, however that being said I really did feel that the Reverb’s FoV was just a bit too small. It’s probably only just a few degrees smaller than my Odyssey+ but it made a lot of difference in how that felt to me. It’s like you’re continually being reminded that you’re wearing a ski mask, something I don’t feel with my odyssey+ (only when I focus on it).

It’s gone now, I only see one second hand for $900


#609

Wow. I bet HP’s head of VR is feeling like a dick right now :slight_smile:


#610

Well, really no longer. quickly dismantled … In vain I did not make a screenshot :grin:

Received today Pimax 4K (Aukey) for $ 60 from ebay.
It really looks like a P4K! :sunglasses:

I just connected it to the PC and my PiTool picked it up easily, he worked with a half-kick! :clap:

I took some pictures through the lens to show the quality. It really fits the Pimax 4K. This is only $ 60. I will never buy Hp Reverb at 10 times the price … :roll_eyes:


#613

Hehe, well the pimax 4k is ok for porn but for anything else I would never use it. Lack of controllers, the extreme ghosting, washed out colours, no hardware IPD (I always had to look cross eyed), nah.

Trie bit he can ise his vive wands for controllers. :beers::wink::+1::sparkles:


#616

Yes, I use it for video :beers:
But I hope that I can connect Vive-wands and stations to it, if I can find a way. (like where it was).

@Heliosurge, somewhere there was a way to do this, I would have to look at my leisure. maybe @SweViver has it :roll_eyes:


#617

He is there after all, I found him! :joy:

Ah, great to see that they’re selling it again. I’m still hoping that the Reverb at least will give WMR a new impulse.
