Update 12/6/18: M1 tracking info


#82

That makes me feel better since im 3020 or somewhere close to that #


#83

in addition, how many weeks will it take (from start of production) to reach “full production output”. I’m backer 6000+ so this question is relevant to folks like myself…so we’ll see.


#84

Keep in min # of backers doesn’t necessarily = no of headsets. Some might have fone the $5 pledge.


#85

yea I know man, keep the faith right :slight_smile: This recent beta testers tease is both a curse and a blessing ha.


#86

I hope that the 10 testers give the Green Light to Pimax and then start the mass production soon.

It would be wonderfull to receive my 8K before July XD (I’m backer #69, so I hope mine will be in the first batch :slight_smile: )


#87

Also bear in mind that some may have opted to have their HMD shipped at the same time as the base station and controllers, so they’ll be right at the back of the queue. Suddenly my 5000+ number doesn’t seem so bad :D.


#88

Right, I don’t think that was a popular option though, so you’re probably now 4997 in the queue. :smiley:


#89

Pimax has said: the first weeks will produce a few hundred but in the end they will reach 1000 a week.

Please show us where they said that.


#90

Sorry, far less and not so sure.


#91

Thats true SWAT…i opted for headset first and other parts later since i have vive…


#92

I think they Saïd they would ship the headsets first, and the bases and controllers latter…


#93

It was an option in the backer survey, you could opt to receive the HMD, controllers and lighthouses at the same time, or get the HMD first and the other parts when they’re ready. For people like me that have the HTC Vive we can use the 8K straight away without needing to wait for the extras.

@SWAT

When they asked if you opt to receive the HMD, controllers and lighthouses at the same time, or get the HMD first and the other parts when they’re ready ?

[/quote]Yes it was one of the questions in the survey that was sent out to all of the 8K backers. To quote…

Q) Our estimated shipping date for controllers and base stations start from April, whereas headset being shipping from January 2018. Would you prefer to:
A) Receive the HMD as soon as possible, and the controllers and base stations from April

OK so the April deadline has come and gone, but I should still get my 8K headset first, which is fine for me as I already have a Vive, v1 lighthouses and controllers, then when Pimax release their own controllers and lighthouses they’ll ship them to me separately (at which point my brother will inherit the Vive).


#96

My oldest son gets my vive…as long as he he keeps his grades up at RIT…:wink:


#97

So you are keeping your Pimax 8k ALL TO YOURSELF… :imp:


#98

I have feeling once my son Austin tries pimax he will want one but he is 5 hrs away in Rochester so vive vr for him is better then no vr…lol


#99

& us old timers need an edge on the young. Lol


#100

Lol, i thought I was the only dad who kept the best toys for himself… my son gets my hand me down graphics cards too :slight_smile:


#101

True. Very true. How else we old people going to enjoy things of tomorrow? :stuck_out_tongue:
