Yes, I’m not massively impressed by the pixel issue will see how that goes, now that HMD production is more or less flowing, we should have a lot more comparisons from people and we can see where fault trends are. I might just be unlucky twice or pimax are about to have a lot of complaints!? tbc…
I’m still unsure on the lens thing, been just playing tonight with a mate of mine over showing the pimax to. I had no cause to up the IPD to limits being low but he did whilst trying it and got my newer HMD up to 73, my other one barely touches 69.4
So IPD range:
older HMD: 59.9 - 69.4
newer HMD: 60.2 - 73
So IPD adjustment and maybe varience in the position of lens might relate to why I’ve noticed lens distortion differences, I’ve noticed less pain on the nose on the newer one at the IPD I use around 61.
Another slight noticeable difference, the rubber attachment the face foam sits on is a bit stiffer, not saying its a problem, but showing another build difference.
I then started to think the new one felt heavier in the hand, wasn’t sure so I’ve got the scales out again.
Turns out the new one is but not by much. Weighed HMD only, no strap/cable attached.
So 4g of extra plastic
Its the Headstrap that was adding to my perception of weight difference.
Old Strap 39g
New Strap 56g
That’s it for now, its not exploded yet
