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



I really hope this insane ramp up does not happen at the cost of skipped or overlooked QA…
I’m really worried about that as they went from 200 to almost 500 per batch in less than 2 weeks.

What about the recent multiple reports about cracking housings ? I’m not very confident this has been resolved already as those are very recent reports. I fear many of those HMDs sent in huge batchs now will suffer from cracks sooner of later.

Same for the automated panel check using a camera (dead pixels, light bleed etc). They haven’t confirmed this new process was up and running, I wonder what is the chance you can set up a new QA process like that (must be complex) and ramp up the shipping that quickly in the mean time.


Thank you for the pictures. :grinning::+1:


They said recently they had hired more QA testers and were training them on the pimaxes. So that training finishing can explain the sudden increase in shipping.

I’m worried about the cracking though. That’s something that QA can’t see because it cracks days/weeks later. There’s obviously a stress point at the corners and I worry that is going to happen to every hmd and be a complete disaster for Pimax. I cannot recommend dealing with pimax to friends and family but that doesn’t mean I want them to fail. A return claim on every hmd would be difficult to survive.




What does SH mean on the spreadsheet, Shanghai? So if it says Jan 7th SH, means my headset was in Shanghai on the 7th?

How much longer does it take from “SH” to get to customers in the US?


backer 2128 here. How many of those headsets arent mine :angry:


Everyone says Shanghai but I’ve also seen Shipping & Handling, which makes sense… so… I don’t know

EDIT: It’s Shanghai


472 units per day ? Nice ramp up indeed, keep up the good job Pimax and every backer will have its headset very soon !


No that’s a batch, but still pretty quick


Nope ! Shanghai !!



I can smell mine from here ,new box smell lovvvly


As for shipping into the US, I would remind you that there are GOING to be delays that are beyond Pimax control.

Thank your government for deciding to shut down - CBP has been working for weeks with reduced workforce (and those that ARE on the job are working for NO PAY) which combine to a perfect storm of delays with products coming from overseas.

I am sure that Pimax is doing whatever they can to mitigate, but still…this one ain’t on them…

I like how they had to move to the canteen now. So.Many.Boxes!!!111

Why are headset choices locked in Pimax!?

It seems that at the current rate, actually sending preorders will begin at the end of the month :heart_eyes:


Not during Chinese New Year. I suspect Pimax are going full-throttle now to get all these backer orders fulfilled before CNY kicks in.


Yes most probably. If an order is not send to their oversea warehouse by end of January, it might get delayed until end of February. Usually Chinese New Year last only one week but many companies ramp up slowly afterwards.


My replacement is arrived at my country within 2 days, faster than last time which use total 9 days. Good job.


its not per day… he wrote: “Batch 14 quantity 472 Ship date 208 units(9th Jan 2019) 264 units(10 Jan 2019)”

9th jan is 208 (its per day 208) and 10 jan is 264 (per day) now 264+208=472 for batch14

472 pimax’es sending in two days
