    Mixed opinion

    I'll keep it honest. the 5k super is probably meant to smash the boundaries of VR like highest capable fps, FOV, etc. but when i tried it for 2 hours i noticed the nose pad i instantly had to take out, the audio strap it comes with doesn't exactly have the best audio and its quite uncomfortable, the cable is way too short and the face pad is too thin. when you tighten the strap it presses your face closer to the lens which in turn gives off a slight glint on the screen which i fixed by simply pulling the headset off my face by a couple of millimetres. that's all the physical problems. one big thing im really sad about is the LCD screens do not show the deepest blacks like an OLED since i like to play dark games like zombie/horror, etc. it really ruins the quality of the map and gives a fine grey film over the entire view. but other then that the lighter games the LCD screen shows no problem picking up colors. im not going to give a worse star rating simply because this is my opinion. my fixes for my problems included HTC deluxe audio strap adapters to use the DAS with my own headphones, a thicker face cushion i bought for the pimax, and the 6m replacement cable. i really need the most out of the headset so comfort is a big deal seeing i use FBT with it.

    Pimax 5k Super, great FOV

    Work very well for me. I bought the Pimax for de FOV and i am pretty satisfied. The global result is amazing, very immersive.

    Can never go back to 110° ever again

    There can be some little things I could whine about with this HMD, but they knocked it out of the park with the FOV that makes me really not care. It became essential for the VR experience to not feel like you are looking through binoculars. In my experience the FOV is not really a full 200° (rendered maybe but not optically), but more like 170°. Still, this is pretty amazing. Not advertised the vertical FOV is impressive too. The icing on the cake is a nearly imperceivable SDE.

    My 2070 Super doesn't care to run above 120Hz, so I can't say much about the higher refresh rates. At 120Hz Pimax's Oculus ASW-like brainwarp processing works great, and at 120Hz it happens so fast it's not that noticeable when frames drop.

    The strap uses the ratcheting knob style and is the best design for VR headsets (hard hats have been doing it for decades, my guess because it works). This strap is also gracious with foam padding. It's a bulky HMD, but the strap does the job comfortably. An issue I have is tilting my head 90° or more sideways, as the foam is great on the back and front, but not really there on the sides.

    Blacks can be a little grey, but when playing I don't really notice. It does make the brightest whites seem low contrast in comparison. The nice thing is there is no ghosting, which OLED panels have a problem with. The lack of noticeable SDE makes up for the low contrast by making everything look smooth and continuous.

    The software is good, mostly. It has a lot of video customization options, and the defaults are good enough already I'd probably do worse messing with them. Translation from Chinese to English sometimes gets in the way.

    I like the foveated rendering for the benefit of performance, but it will have some occasional graphics glitches. Some people will find the shimmer FFR causes at the periphery distracting, but it didn't bother me. It's hard for me to look that far and the lenses get a little fuzzy at that extreme angle anyway. It's more important that it isn't just black.

    Some other little issues are just glitches that could be Pimax, SteamVR, or both, that means sometimes I have to reset my PC. The base station power suspend feature also doesn't seem to be compatible.

    My only real bummer is the over-ear speakers are really weak and hollow sounding.

    I also would like to mention that my customer support experience has been responsive. I say that just because Reddit likes to moan, and maybe it has been awful for some, but not here. Shipping was slow, two weeks for the HMD, and nearly a month for the base stations and index controllers. Not the longest shipping I've experienced from Shanghai however.

    I really can't state enough how important this FOV is. I'm curious to see the 8k in action at a high frame rate, because after seeing how important FOV and frame rate are to VR, the only thing left is crispness.

    Know your mission

    This is probably a great device for certain applications but it doesn’t work very well for x-plane which is what I need it for.
