New HP 4K HMD $599

accessory

#583

Nice to know, wonder if it has the same near sighted lens used in the originali 4K ?..


#584

I think they are completely the same, except for the name (at least in appearance).
The risk price in this case - $ 60 is justified in my opinion.

I think @Heliosurge may know a little more :beers: :sunglasses:

There the seller went on vacation until July 8…
He only registered my track number, but did not send it. (I look forward to)


#585

Was this due to lack of FOV or something else? I always feel that the LCD panels dont have as much 3D effect as the OLED panels


#586

There is unboxing:

It will be the same. It’s just rebranded. A simple mod with a 1.0 - 1.5mm spacer fixes the focal length. But needs a slightly longer screws.


#588

Not sure, I didn’t have enough time to really determine that, could have just been the IPD.


#589

as you have it opened glue there small radiator

I just saw this nice comparions between HMD’s, from @evertec: https://www.reddit.com/r/WindowsMR/comments/c8ajuv/first_impressions_of_index_vs_rift_s_pimax_hp/

He says the Reverb is the overal winner. Damn, if only they would have added IPD adjustment, we could all enjoy it. Damn you HP :slight_smile:

And what’s up with Acer? I really can find no news at all for the last few months. Just hoping the Ojo Concept D didn’t die already (like the Ojo 500 did, they never really released it apart from I think 2 asian countries)


#591

Yeah I wish it had IPD adjustment but both it and the Rift S were surprisingly decent for my IPD (around 58mm). What is yours?


#592

Mine is around 69, clearly too big for the Reverb unfortunately


#593

Hmm, yeah, hopefully the Ojo or something with similar res will come out soon, or the Pimax 8K X turns out to be similar clarity, because that resolution is pretty amazing.


#594

Rift S said to be decent if your ipd is not big


#595

Don’t remember Lucky’s but nogo for him. But if mem serves 72?


#596

“a hair under 70mm”


#597

So I tried the Rift S today. It certainly matches the 5K in clarity. Everything just works super smooth but it suffers from LCD syndrome. That lack of presence where it feels like your looking through a large TV viewer. Man I hope LG and BOE get their sh*t together fast


#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.


#599

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?


#600

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

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?
