A couple months ago got an Oculus Quest 1 and Flight Sims and Games changed forever for me.. I recently bought the Quest 2 and its not bad but the FOV is not even better than the Quest 1.. SO I decided to get a PIMAX and after a lot of research and based on my system decided on the PIMAX 5 Plus.. WOW at 120 hz DCS looks amazing ! I am running on RTX 2060 Ultra KO from EVGA - ( 2070 speeds) no OC and this still is amazing.. Like night and day from both Oculuses. I bought the set used along with a complete HTC Vive with Controllers and Lighthouses.. Finally got everything figured out. Love this headset so far ! I can play oculus games and steam.. I bought it with a comfort kit and for under $20 got a replacement foam padding for the face. Properly configured this thing is a beast !
Overall experience has been very positive so far. This is my second headset I've owned having replaced my Vive CV1 and the picture quality was an immediate improvement. I havent had any issues with the software either and find it relatively easy to navigate and tweak to suit my needs. I would recommend this headset to anyone looking for a good value for their buck.
I didn't think that something could be so immersive!
I have in my room some VR headsets: HTC Vive, Cosmos, HP first generation, Samsung Odyssey Plus, Valve Index, Oculus Rift S and finally a PIMAX 5K+.
All the better things of other headset 're in this my last little jewel of tecnology.
Extremely light and confortable.
Having a refresh rate at 144hz is the best option for my 2080ti that need to be used!
What to say? What to add?
I received this headset almost a year before I got the index knuckles upgrade. It just sat in a box collecting dust. My expectations were extremely low given the bad press and negative feedback all over the pixax/openmr forums.
My first attempt at getting up and running ended with the headset having a dead eye. Right eye just wouldn't turn on. Pimax swapped the unit in remarkable time (cross shipping w/deposit).
Anyways, since then I have had mostly amazing VR experiences. The quality of the display and the shear FOV has made this the best VR device I've ever used. I've tried lots of other headsets and this one is just on another level.
Note, The software isn't great. Prepare yourself accordingly. Pimax has taken great strides at improving this, but don't have the expectation of glitchless perfection. You'll be sorely disappointed.
Other than the delivery of my silicone sleeve and comfort kit still not arriving as of yet since purchase a few months ago. The headset is fantastic. Already owned another. Until star VR comes to consumer or a Headset with the same abilities Pimax is the way ahead.
