So now that the first batch of 8KX has gone through testing and is on its way to the Shanghai offices you can surely reveal the quantity of headsets which make up the first batch, and how many of these are going to be sent to 8KX backers ?

Thank you for the update. I’m also very interested in the number of 8kx’s being produced and tested at present.

SO…
“Our Pimax Now Event is nearly here. We expect this event to take place next week or early the following week. We will advise with further information.”

…The same as you said last week :woozy_face: :scream: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :cry:

Dear Pimax,

Just set the Pimax NOW date for August15th and then either deliver on time or (positively) surprise everyone by delivering earlier. The current method isn’t doing you any favours.

I also accept that technically, the first batch of 8KXs has been shipped, although of course this is referring to the shipment from your factory to your office. I believe that the shipping date most important to your backers is the one from your office to their homes as well as the actual number of HMDs in that first batch. Please do communicate that number and the ETA for ‘actual shipping’.

Other than that, I’m glad the eye-tracking module appears to be coming along nicely.

A lot of the usual, But the main point is that the foam issue is no more and they can go ahead and produce like crazy :partying_face:
Hope the supply chain is solid, so we don’t need to wait for any components… would be nice to know more. Back in the days of 5K+ and 8K production we got that nice little table of amount of material in stock, units produced/day etc. It was a nice way to show what was going on in the factory+testing:

Just to make sure I understand correctly: the first batch of 8k-X is ready and is going to be shipped out as soon as it arrives in your office? Of is there still a process waiting to be done?

Thanks

My best guess is that the shipment happens when the loaner thing is solved (ongoing).

While the copy/paste “schedule” for NOW is increasingly hilarious, I’m glad to see that ALL 8kX+SMAS units passed internal testing. Hopefully the trend continues, and we aren’t plagued by the RMA nightmares of the pre-Vision era.

@PimaxUSA How many 8K-Xs are in the first batch? When are you actually going to ship the 8K-X out to customers? Pimax was due to ship these a week or two ago.

I won’t be surprised if:

First batch - reserved for internal usage , and a family of employees
Second batch - demo units for YouTubers & Media
Third batch for - partners , resellers in Asia

We need Mulder & Scully from X-files to get one for backers

Pimax is really good at making people think they are just about to ship the 8K-X and then somehow weeks later that is still not the case.
