Hmmmm… I got very excited as i saw the enthusiastic short review of 5k BE my Sebastian (MRTV , @mixedrealityTV ) ! 2 days ago I reanswered the surveys gotten 2nd time. Yesterday I received my 5k+ , first out of 4 pledges (2x 8k, 2x 5k+ , but first I decided to get 3x 5k +, 1x 8k keep the best and sell the rest).
First impressions of 5k+ :I am having a lot of fun with the headset and enjoy it especially the FOV!
But, as stated before, in completely dark scenes with very little or no contrast by objects in ones view even on the low brightness black level bothers me a bit, even if I am only a casual player and not into horror games like @VoodooDE. Yesterday I tried Apollo 11 VR HD and there are scenes where you look into the space with only few stars visible - for me it look lot greyish. But as soon you have some other object in your sightb with some color, because of the contrast the “black” appear black again! Enough black for my taste at leastn
SDE never was such a problem even on OG vive so SDE in magnitude of vive pro (like stated by Sebastian) also wouldn’t bother me.
Therefore I asked Pimax support if it’s possible to still change the headsets version like 5 hours ago but got no reply yet. (Of course with paying difference between 8k/5k+ to 5k BE). I just now read this announcement. I am afraid. I might be too late.
I really wished pimax would have give us more information on 5k BE and some testing results by three musketeers and set a deadline LATER on if they wanted to give us the possibility to change to 5K BE.
But even if I could’t switch anymore, I/you surely will have a LOT of fun even with 5k+ and 8k!
