Ok, my full Pimax 8K vs 5K+ review and in depth analysis report video is now live! Sorry for the delay but it took almost 5 hours to export the video (22G), 20 minutes to upload and another 2 hours for YouTube to process it…
This will definitely be the most in-depth testing analysis found online. During this full Pimax 8K and 5K+ review, you will get everything from unboxing, in-depth Pimax functionality information, testing results, Pimax 8K and 5K+ benchmarks, through the lens photos and videos, comparisons and much more!
This definitely the most extensive and advanced video I have ever made, and I really feel that I have put my entire heart into this. Not because I’m a small YouTuber, but because I really enjoy this community, I really like Pimax as a VR device and I see the huge potential of it. And also, because I’m a total VR geek who loves to go in-deep on everything
The whole review took me more than 180 hours to make during the past almost 2 weeks, and its based on my 3+ months of testing the Pimax 8K m1 headset during the beta testing phase, but also 2 weeks of intense Pimax 8K m2 vs Pimax 5K+ testings, comparisons and conclusions.
Do you appreciate my work?
Please support me on Patreon. 2 bucks a month is actually a lot to me!
NOTE: All my Patreons will get ALL my original through-the-lens photos and videos to analyze! I will post all files in a big ZIP file later tonight and publish it on my Patreon
I know it may sounds wrong only giving it to Patreons for now, but please understand I spent several days with 16-18 hours a day just taking those through the lens videos and comparisons. Eventually, I will release the files for everyone, but for now I would appreciate if they stayed among Patreons only. Thanks for understanding.
Please be aware that ALL my conclusions and opinions are my own here. I have NOT even discussed anything about the Pimax headsets and their performance with neither Sebastian or Thomas, since we were in Berlin. I have my conclusion and you have yours, but I’m sure my video is in-depth enought to answer 95% of your questions and give you your own “whole picture” when it’s time to decide between Pimax 8K or 5K+. I really hope all the information, footage, my knowledge and also visual proof will give you all the help you need today with your 8K vs 5K+ decision!
Also I will do a Live Stream tomorrow night on my channel, most likely around 8pm. If you have any questions please join and I promise I can spend hours tomorrow diuscussing with you
Now, I just need to sleep. I never slept at all last night, and the last 2 weeks I have been sleeping for 3-4 hours per night because of all stress with this deadline so I might need a 10-hour sessions now, but I promise to start answering your questions tomorrow again!
And again, if you really appreciate my effort, please consider supporting me on Patreon with 2 bucks a month or whatever - and remember I will upload those through the lens images before I go to sleep tonight.
Also, do NOT miss the end of the video where I have a personal message to you all, including the Pimax team! :slight_smile:
Thank you very much guys.
- And enjoy!
