For me and many others, we can’t make a decision between the 8k+ and 8kX until these questions are answered and they are not trivial and we will not order something so expensive making assumptions to these questions and hoping for knowledge we don’t know yet:
1. What is the current outlook/status of the 8kX native @ 90hz?
2. Will the 8kX extend by 2m cable in upscaling or reduced FOV native mode?
3. Will the 8kX work with the wireless in upscaling or reduced FOV native mode?
Also can’t make a decision until we know more about the difference between the standard and deluxe MAS:
1. does the deluxe come with a speaker in it if we take the drop down headphones off if we wanted to use it in that mode? I know they said headphones can be added to the standard MAS though.
A suggestion here is stop adding so many sku’s, just offer one headset strap and you can remove the headphones or not…you are creating an information, confusion, and logistical nightmare all the time by doing this! Pimax is shooting themselves in the foot. You don’t see Valve offering multiple headsets with unanswered questions about them, multiple options at checkout for upgrades that have yet to be explained or reviewed. Keep it simpler and you will be rewarded.
Pimax’s silence on these issues are holding back a lot of orders! Pimax, at the price the 8kX and 8k+ is, it should have included the deluxe headset and free shipping. Or at the very least free shipping!
