Thank you all for support us as we have, we are here to thank you for your loyalty.



Great very appreciate about this policy, I can promote to people with confident.

May I contact to a youtuber with 8,000,000 subscribers to test the headset if she interested.
I also have a plan to make meetup in Bangkok next week.


Really loving the Pimax support so far.


I am very honored to thank you.


Excellent news.
My 5k+ with cracks on the edges has visible black dots on the panels so hopefully the replacement wont have them.
Although to be fair I dont notice them most of the time.
They do however stand out very clearly when watching a video in bigscreen


So are you using new panels for the 5k+ which removes the black dots? @Matthew.Xu

Wow this is huge news!


That’s what I want to know also…if it’s the same panel then I’m not sure I’d want to bother with an exchange since there wouldn’t be any guarantee that I wouldn’t have the same problem and might end up with something worse like dead pixels…if a different panel is being used then I would definitely consider going for the exchange

Sure, Pimax has had bumps along the way but to me it seems they always end up doing the right thing… :+1::wink:

Now if only people would stop complaining/dissing (I get the frustration, but not the rudeness of some) all the time and realize they’re really trying to get it right… :kissing_heart:

You guys rock…! :sunglasses::metal:


Thank you Pimax!!!
You are doing the right thing by your customers…and we appreciate it!!



Nice from pimax to offer a replacement for 5K+ affected about black dots :+1:

Can you let us know why recent 5K+ have almost not black dots anymore ? It seems like the panel manufacturer improved it and managed to reduce the black dots, that’s it ?

Also could you also make an official reply about the cracking housing ? There are a lot of recent report about that too:


Oh this is awesome news!
@matthew.xu if you can tell, what causes the black dots on the displays exactly?


Holy shit. If this aint the best support i have ever seen in my entire life :open_mouth:.

Really hope my unit comes without black dots and better plastic so i can avoid disturbing Pimax with all the hustle of replacing the product.

@Matthew.Xu you rock man :heart_eyes:.


You OK!!, you shore you dont want to sit down for a minute :slight_smile:

This is great, thank you for your support!
So are you using new panels for the 5K+?
Same size and ppd of the panels?
Some backers with new units without black dots reported a kind of dirty effect/film on the screen, are you aware of it?
Thank you very much! @Matthew.Xu

Really hope this does not delay preorders. Dont think i can make it to march.


@Matthew.Xu Sounds like the MURA effect issue on Rift and Vive.

Are you terminally ill? :open_mouth:


LMAO, you were mean af XD
