Pimax Review

My Pimax 5K+ Review -By Broklynite

Let’s get the framing info out of the way- I am running a 1080Ti, 8 gigs RAM (I know, I know, I want more too), i7. I have the 5k+ loaner while I wait for the 8kX.

Let’s talk about how I feel about that choice: -Pros and cons. Pros: It’s a great VR. I worked myself up a little bit in the months leading to getting it based on comments...
