Yeh, alls he said was “new backlight and new panels” right at the start.
If pimax sent him that for review, its crazy they sent him 1 that did the bodged firmware update why not send out even just the review units with the updated firmware?
I owned a G2, i prefer the 8KX. its just more fun.
I do own the varjo Aero and the pimax xr oled and the reverb g2 and the vive pro 1 with lense mod and wireless module.
I prefer for shooters like:
the Varjo Aero
For comic like games with darker areas I definately prefer the Pimax xr Oled , it was such a better experience in Walking Dead Saints and sinners compared to my Varjo Aero. I wish I had the Star Vr One for this game.
But overall the Varjo Aero wins in games with great detail like The Wanderer .
Pimax should focus to bring out wireless oled hmds with 210 degree fov without sde and great colors .
And dear Pimax please wait for display Port 2.0 before releasing a new hmd that would be great so we will get 240hz per eye
One could look at it as being honest and sending reviewers the same stock that customers are sent.
And frankly, I think that perspective Pimax customers should be aware of the nature of Pimax. Expect to deal with significant issues while setting it up and getting it dialed in. Expect the out of box experience to be frustrating. Expect it to initially seem disappointing. It’s worse if the customer doesn’t know ahead of time that this is the usual Pimax experience.
I did a lot of research before I bought my 8KX. I knew what I was getting into. I signed up to go through that initial pain, and it helped a lot.
This was the (in)famous video that resulted in a nearly 2 year blacklisting & subsequent railroading of Pimax products from his channel.
I like Seb and his “independant reviews” but it was kind of unbelievable how he had beef with Pimax after “Pimax NDA-Gate” and then suddenly the FOV which he constantly bragged about and claimed he couldn’t go back from…became suddenly all distorted and unplayable.
Luckily PimaxUSA crashed his 12K livestream with an olive branch and since then Sebs “Independant Reviews” have gotten alot more positive.
