I don’t think @Matthew.Xu was trying to say about the loaner units, they are not something 8KX KS backers can be refunded for.
Trade-in @Matthew.Xu was talking about can be about either KS stretch goals like MAS or extra items people ordered during the KS time, like handtracking, base stations, cable etc.
What I hope Pimax can do is to sell new 8KX/8K+ to KS backers using their internal manufacturing cost, not the market price.
Most of the KS backers are feeling like they’ve got not what they originally signed for in terms of panels/SDE and productivity. This is not a total Pimax fault, because of at that time there were no other options for panels/upscaler etc. (new ANX chipset was announced but not released, the casing was not mass production tested etc).
At least Pimax is trying to fix most of the problems.
And thanks to Kevin and Martin the communication improved a lot
I think we all need to calm down and wait for next week announcements.
