I’ve not been on these forums for quite some time! Just catching up on some recent posts. I was on a pre-order but cancelled due to lack of faith and concerns about quality.
1/ Did the plastic ever get improved? I’m still seeing photos of the housing cracking.
2/ Customer service improve at all? I did see a post a few months ago where the guy was posting for 2 months to get answers. Just checking now I think people still getting delayed responses?
3/ Have people that purchased their Pimax’s had good experiences? No issues? A solid product? Completely happy with their purchase?
The FOV on normal 150 degrees is what graphics card can handle, so the larger 200 degrees is for future graphics cards (probably other options of HMDs with larger FOV’s by then anyway - by the time any massively improved graphics cards are developed).
Here’s my reasons for cancelling my pre-order and just wondering if anything has changed?
Black grid pattern pixels
Dead pixels / clusters of dead pixels
Audio jack bad connectivity
Flimsy construction / glued uneven seems
PiTool breaking optimisation / oculus software
Product and website launch a complete flop
Website hacked for months with virus
Black bars on outer edges
SDE still present
Sketchy communication / bad PR
It was never 200 degrees FOV
RMA could be very lengthy
Numerous over optimistic deadlines
Dirty boxes / grubby HMDs / uneven plastic tone
Quite expensive for what it is
Requires at least the top end graphics card which is another £1300
Future graphics cards required to touch large FOV
In addition to the above back in January, I knew another HMD would be on the horizon in the near future and then Valve Index was announced. So I’m just weighing up my options. I’m waiting on the Index release and YouTubers getting their reviews out before I make my decision.
Thanks for you time
