[Pictures]The PiMax products are ready to send 16th Jan 2019



Maybe pimax team could make some kind of google spreadshit where would be information with backer numbers in every batch? This topic itself does not help to understand status of any package. By numbers i could say that my headset was sent in batch 8. But i don’t have ANY info to be sure about it. So are other backers that still did not get their tracking numbers from local delivery.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English. Not my native language.


Yes, that was my final decision. Several 8K owners have said that the text is readable on the 8K (even if it’s not as crisp). I picked it for the better blacks and colors. The deciding factor was that a few 5K+ owners have mentioned that they regretted not picking the 8K instead, due to the washed out colors and “black dots” issue. I have yet to see an 8K owner express regret, for not picking a 5K+.

I have ordered a Vive lighthouse, which should arrive well before my headset does, so I will be able to lean in close to the text (as needed). I only ordered 1 lighthouse from Pimax, so now I’ll have 2 and be able to play non-seated games, as long as I don’t need more than a 4 x 6 foot (1.3 x 2 m) area (or am willing to move furniture).

Yup, that’s the same logic I used as well. (Plus can just buy 5K+ and sell 8K if change my mind and getting 8K saves money if I do it that way.)


But are you getting a v1 lighthouse? because Pimax will send you a v2 and I don’t think they work together but I’m not sure


I’m getting a new one from Amazon. It’s not specified, but one of the review comments said that it was v2. I’m mainly interested in seated games, so it’s not a big deal if I can only use 1 (and I’ll still have replacement if it dies).

The main thing is that I don’t want to wait for my Pimax lighthouse to be shipped. I’d like 6DOF asap.


Well you will be able to use 6dof at least so that’s good


hello, nice photos from the cartons, the headsets in the cartons are also okay, but take some photos of your quality assurance, because I expect my headset not with joy, but with care …worry


@neal_white_iii There are some amazing room space VR experiences out there. You should definitely consider moving furniture for those. :smiley:


Problem is if you get V2 Lighthouse you’ll also need V2 controllers as V1 controllers aren’t backwards compatible with V2 base stations.


Thanks for the tip! I’m not particularly worried. I don’t have any VR equipment at all. I’m mostly going to be playing Elite Dangerous, so my initial setup will be spartan (no VR controllers, 1 lighthouse).


They are basically doing the same thing by giving the numbers. I mean, they said specifically they are sending them out in order of backer number, minus a few people who didn’t respond to the survey. So, since as of yesterday they’ve shipped 1129 units, if someone is backer number 1129 or before (and responded to the survey), they can know for sure that theirs has been shipped.


@Dallas.Hao What about Backer Number:1450 ~6078 ? Who are the lucky ones ?


They’ve actually shipped 1,479 as of yesterday.

Edit: these are unit numbers so the backer number is higher.

@Dallas.Hao I am backer 4180. Can you please confirm me if my 8K is in Batch 10 – 1450 ~6078 ?
Thank you !


They only sent 36 units


Is this referring to units being shipped to the warehouse, or units being shipped to the backer?


To warehouse as far as I know.


@Dallas.Hao can you explain what is happening please.
we don’t know if we are in those batches or no… would be nice to get an answer as most of us are asking this for a couple of days.
Thank you


Warehouse first and then backers of course.
