So I finally tried out my new Pimax 4K yesterday and am a bit irritated still.
First off the device was very dusty when I opened the package, even the covered lenses where dusty, but as far as I can tell there luckily seems to be no dust on the inside of the device.
Admittedly I am not entirely sure if I got an actual new device or one that had been returned before.
Amazon claimed that it was new, when I purchased it though, so I still assume it is a new device.
But I read here in the forums, that quite a few people also received very dusty products. So is this normal?
Something else I noticed is a grid of little red dots that are noticeable on dark/black background. Interestingly only on approximately the right third of the right eye, and only at a specific angle. Unfortunately I naturally achieve this angle, when I wear the HMD and I guess my brain fills the full vision field with this red dot grid when the area you see is black. And since I mostly want to use the Pimax 4K with Elite Dangerous this circumstance is really annoying and immersion-destroying.
Another problem is, that my vision is somewhat blurred when I use the HMD. Especially on the left eye.
I tried cleaning the lenses but to no avail. I am wearing glasses under the HMD, and there is no way I can not use those, because that would result in even more blur. Even though I have not tried this, my real life experience tells me as much.
Also the field of view is seriously small. Is that normal?
So can this issue be caused by my wearing glasses, and therefore can’t be helped, or is this just a question of finding better settings? If it is settings, maybe that could help with the red dots too?
Or can it be, that the lenses are “off/defective/whatnot”?
Last but not least: The drift of the glasses in Elite Dangerous is insane! Is there a way to make this more bearable? Can one combine this with head tracking via camera?
Sorry for the long post, this kind of turned into a rant. But I am really close to returning the Pimax 4K. I am just not sure if I should label it as defective due to the red dots and blurry vision. But if I return it I still might consider purchasing the 8K or 5K later on though. But if my glasses are part of the problem I probably should stay clear.
So I am really interested in your input on all those points above. Thanks in advance!
