The unwritten rules is that you shipped First In, First Out. Show love to all your backers but make sure you take care of those who supported you first.
I am frustrated by the shipping method selected by PIMAX. I want to emphasize the word selected because it was their choice. When I pre-order my Oculus Rift, I was one of the early adopter and I got my HMD early. Today I am sitting here as a 23xx backer waiting because my HMD is in the HK warehouse while backers in my country/province with backer # in the 47xx and 66xx are enjoying theirs. When I called FedEx, I was given the nice explanation that it didn’t make it on the plane before CNY because they didn’t have any room on the plane. That’s the rules of economy shipping, whenever they have room, they add your package. Some might say it is FedEx’s fault but I beg to differ. This is entirely the responsibility of PIMAX. They picked the cheapest option available to them and the end user experience is suffering for it. I am not even going to mention the UK backers are are in the same situation as mine. I bet they are as frustrated as me about the whole situation.
I am not a big YT and I don’t have an big community. I am just a small streamer within a team that stream other VR content from time to time. There was lot of interest within my team to provide them feedback about the Pimax VR HMD. Now that my experience has been delay, I need to move on to the big game of February : Anthem and The Division 2. I was going to do this whole streaming thing about the Pimax HMD but this might have to wait until summer now. It’s a big lost opportunity for PIMAX to get some wanted attention.
Heck, I am not going to get mad for long, I got other things to do. Eventually, i’ll get to to it and I will probably enjoy it. Hopefully, they will be less bug and the product will be even better by that time. I just wish I couldn’t have been part of the process. Oh well…
