Wow I really love the LED on my 8KX. Why is there still promotional images of the Crystal showing a glowing Blue Chevron ?
I did not see any information about Pimax removing the LED anywhere and it feels very odd to me as that Chevron LED is great on 8KX and Crystal is a more premium & expensive product which deserves that extra quality touch imho.
Well they didn’t remove it. They just never changed it from the sticker.
I think due to the power draw already being substantially high they opted not to have it in a similar fashion of the missing prox sensor in previous model(save was not due to power but cheap cost savings)
I brought this subject up back in November last year.
Even reps at Pimax didn’t know the answer and thought I was talking rubbish for even asking the question. Well after a PM from the kind people in Shanghai they confirmed it was in fact a sticker and not a light strip. Even then people didn’t believe me.
I think because Crystal is suppose to be an all in one the drain on battery power was of major concern so Pimax dropped the feature. A shame as I think it adds a lot of character to the HMD.
Haha as I write this I looked down at my sons school back pack that has a Kylo Ren led strip. It’s run on 2x 3v batteries.
