I didn't have much experience with VR so asked a friend who has had a couple headsets since VR started coming out "what would you get now?" and he pointed me to the Pimax 5K XR. It wasn't too over the top, but appeared to be decent tech. I wanted something that was good and would last a while without going too crazy. I got it with the steam lighthouses and controllers and immediately sunk about 400 hours into a fallout4vr playthrough as well as a few other games. I wore the valve controllers into the thumbstick drift issue, one of the lighthouses stopped working, but the Pimax headset is still going strong. For this VR startup company to beat a behemoth like valve in hardware longevity had me pleasantly surprised. I am glad I got it, and have been enjoying it ever since. Even when I didn't have controllers or lighthouses for the full experience, I can use vorpX to play older games in VR (doing a Fallout New Vegas play now) and even without using the controllers and lighthouses, the tracking built into the headset is just great.
Superb experience using 5K XR Headset. Playing even 2D games like Stellaris, Subsistence, Cities Skylines is exciting. Against 24" monitor it is huge step forward to the immersion, you almost feel you are inside the game, even it is 2D. Huge FOV is hard to describe how good it is. Unfortunatelly, I had time to try only one simple 3D game, because I get stuck with Stellaris :D and 3D videos. Together with Steam Virtual Desktop is any type of work on PC a strong experience, for example having multiple desktops around you. I am very satisfied, but there are 2 downsides though: 1. wearing the headset for a longer time does my nose hurt - you really need to wear the headset attachet correctly on head. 2. noticeable screen door effect. I really want to buy the flagship Vision 8K X, sure will be amazing.
Good view so wide I like this
One thing that affects my review, is that I can't change the distance to my eyes. The image is fuzzy. If I could get the headset further from my eyas, the image would be clear and crispy. Especially I need to get the upper part of the headset away from my forehead. If that was corrected, I would consider 5 stars.Field of view is fantastic. I have a defect set of controllers, so I'm not able to say anything about gaming. Overall quality is good. Depending the shape of your face, the feel may be different, especially how it fits around your nose. Larger bridge, like mine, and you can feel the set. Thicker pad all around the headset would remedy both- the clarity of the image and the headset wouldn't clamp my nose.
good headset, Pimax!
