New HP 4K HMD $599

accessory

#242

The FOV is a let down. I cannot understand that 114° marketing gag. More in the full review.


#243

On normal FOV for me they are barely noticeable. Just wish I could get the IPD/Optics locked in. I’ve tried everything and its about 90% where my Vive was (which was perfect). Pimax even sent me another foam (which was same thickness with a lower bottom part) no good. Its one of the main reasons I pre ordered the index. Res and Fov pimax are awesome though. The only hope now with the Pimax 5k+ for me is if the can set the IPD and distortion profile based on eye tracking. But since eye tracking is free for backers and will only cost Pimax money I doubt we will get them any time soon, if at all.


#244

Agreed, even with high resolutions panels is horrible to look in a tube… not for me , I will wait for a high resolution and at least 150 - 200 FOV.


#245

Looks like we have a clear winner! :beers::sunglasses::+1::sparkles:


#246

I think it will come down to application of use. Ie VD-> HP


#247

its not even close! …


#248

Indeed new RGB panels same size as 5k+


#249

That’s the point too. Rainbow RGB vs 5k+ RGB psnel


#250

Indeed even considering doing something like wearity sky lenses for 150 fov


#251

Hp Reverb is what Pimax should have done with redo on the 4k. Add lighthouse tracking done.


#252

Exactly this I’ve been thinking too. Not sure why Pimax didn’t do it.


#253

Hmm that doesn’t sound too good. However, given the fact that current GPU’s can only push a limited amount of pixels, I personally don’t mind too much about giving up peripheral view for more clarity. I think that’s what Valve did quite well, I think 130 degrees might be the sweet spot here.

Really hoping that the Reverb’s smaller FoV won’t be a deal breaker here.


#254

Oh MY GOD


#255

I’m sold, can’t wait to buy this HMD.
Hope the review video will come soon.


#256

Told you we have a clear winner. :beers::smirk::+1::sparkles:

If it looks as good as the pic; you might think you could touch it.


#257

Wow! That looks amazing. Hope I get to try one soon.


#258

The release is a master cluster f*ck anyway, even Pimax are pro’s compared to HP here. I mean, no info AT ALL. Are they working on the mura issue? Are there other issue’s? Are they shipping? If not, when? No, complete silence …


#259
