True, but this is not Sixsense stem, I agree with you since this is my first Kickstarter campaign I backed (out of 4) that actually pulled through and sent out the product, comparing it to any other start ups accomplishes nothing. The issue here is that we were promised a number of things and, as I have pointed out as well, if they have issues, keeping us up to date should not be an issue and to some degree you are inaccurate in saying that we should be happy with our HMDs since it doesn’t come with the strap (the one that comes with the HMD is a stand-in, which is why it’s vastly different from product pictures and the picture that pops up in PiTool), plus the case cracks at the corner(s). Suggesting rushed product, which is fine and understandable but not keeping us in the loop is the major issue and leads to speculations and “conspiracies” which led to us to this problem.
And lest we forget, they received further funding from Tianma Bearing Group Company,
Shenzhen O-film Tech Company and Galaxy Internet, which means that they are no longer a company funded solely by backers from their Kickstarter campaign, but also corporations. Meaning that marketing and a good PR should have been their priority to keep those investors happy. Their obligations no longer concern only backers but those corporations as well. Bad PR and non-existent marketing will be their downfall. There are some new additions to the Pimax team, which is always good, but so far none of them are part of Pimax marketing team or PR, so they just pop in for a couple of days, then gone. I was promised that someone from Pimax will contact me regarding my cracked case, I heard nothing so far and it’s been days.
So no, I disagree with you regarding Pimax keeping the community up to date since news doesn’t always come from official channels. Take the PiTool software for example, we sometimes receive word from Sweviver back before he joined Pimax team, which is weird. And news don’t have any set schedule so sometimes we don’t hear anything from them for months.
So be happy that you are not as concerned and as frustrated as me. I’m sure some of you who have read my posts would attest that I used to be very supportive of Pimax, but I can no longer do so. I’m tired.
