Valve Index Livestream, (MRTV)

review

#1

So Index is better than pimax :open_mouth::zipper_mouth_face:

Time stamp for those that do not want to watch the hole video.


#2

Yes based on his obervations…Index is better because…:

Better build quality
Headphones in the headband
Better picture
No distortions
Good comfort
It actually has controllers

So at the moment its clear why the index is better, but Pimax could catch up.


#3

But all the talk about god rays, Grey blacks and the same visual clarity as Vive pro. Personally I just couldn’t justify spending $1000 on such a small upgrade

The resolution of the HP reverb has given reviewers far more WOW factor than any of the Index specs. I’m far more interested what the 8K-X has to offer


#4

Didn’t sound too positive to me either.


#5

If you are in the market for a new headset he recommends the Index… Normally he isnt that fast in judgement… Maybe he is indeed a little bit angry on Pimax? :slight_smile: :wink:


#6

Looks like a fun review. Would want to try one for myself. His 8k comment is no surprise as the other 2 have drifted towards 8k. So that was a bad viewer question if as Seb said he is known to be biased for the 5k+. Lol

But he should be comparing distortion of pimax small FoV vs Index as folks say Pimax Small FoV is distortionless.

But the answer from Seb should be clear. Pimax get things moving. Controllers LHrs, Pi DAS & the new mask & foam options. & stop stumbling on quality of housings(down playing).

Hopefully they take the wake up call seriously. :beers::sunglasses::+1::sparkles:

But I wouldn’t jump ship if you have a pimax. Reverb has more wow but bigger problems it seems on quality than pimax.


#7

You are totally right, I own a P5K+ why should I waste over 500 bucks to get the index which is slighltly better then my Pimax with the DAS and the v1 lighthouses…
Waiting for the reverb, it got delayed again… VodooDE got a mail that its delayed until August! So I guess that will happen to mine too… :frowning:


#8

I just look at it this way. If you want to compare the headsets with Limited FoV compare 5k/8k on small FoV as they are on equal ground there.

Index/Reverb/Vive Pro shouldn’t have any real distortions issues with the Gen1 FoV. Where as we know wide FoV headsets have compromises to deliver it. Maybe once pimax releases the eye tracking module we may see drastic distortion fixes.

But any headset determined to not increase the FoV should have no excuse for God Rays & other visual artifacts. :beers::sunglasses::+1::sparkles: These gen1 defects were acceptabled with first release og Vive, Oculus Rift, WMR first draft.


#9

I find it interesting WHY no one as of yet as dont a side by side vid on a show down on the index and pimax .

Pimax needs to pull the rabit out the hat and come up with a competitor soon ya its got better fov but thats it
