Excellent headset, price a bit much though. Receiving the extra $500,00 import duty when it went through was also a nasty shock that should have been included in the price in my opinion. I found the image becomes blurry closer off the center of your vision than other headsets I have, but the field of view and the effect it has on peripheral vision is what makes this stand apart from the others as peripheral vision is not clear anyway. That and the resolution and SDE is the best I have seen so far. Takes a grunty PC to run properly, 2080Ti card and im still putting settings close to minimal to get smooth game play. But all in all, its the best headset I have and very very nice.
Amazing performance excellent FOV and controllers working very good with pimax
I loved my PIMAX 5k plus but had to modify it for comfort and the quality was just okay. The 8k plus even without the MAS is much more comfortable and the quality seems much improved. I use VR for DCS and Elite Dangerous so no room scale VR. I ordered the 8k X back in Nov 2019 and can't wait to receive it.
This is a great headset and the only thing i think is an affordable true second gen device, unlike the competition. Some games that are vr optimised are massively improved in the 8k Plus on large FOV. The added immersion you get from having peripheral vision really enhances the sense of speed and movement. The strange forehead cup is a great design, all the weight (which isn't much) can be spread across your forehead so there's no pressure on the bridge of your nose, unlike the 5k Plus which i spent over 1000 hours in. The clarity of the screens is impressive. To illustrate how different it is from the 5k Plus, i have one eye short sighted and one eye long, i need glasses for near and far vision. In the 5k Plus, text was illegible with my glasses on, but i could make it out (blurry) with no glasses. In the 8k Plus, i have wear my reading glasses , but then its like reading off my monitor screen. Think about that for a minute, i have to now wear glasses to see clearly in vr as the screens clarity and resolution have gone past the point at which my vision needs correcting. This did not happen in the Rift CV1 or the 5K Plus as they could not replicate even close to the point of clarity where my vision breaks down. Much better build quality as well which was needed. This 8K Plus feels very solid , there's no flex anywhere in the plastic. The only downside is that in pushing the screens size and res so far, you need a powerful gpu , well optimised games and lots of settings tweaking to get the best out of it, and there are some things that even with a 2080ti do not run well and i need to reduce the FOV to get acceptable framerates. This is not the Pimax's fault though, its delivering us lots of potential, but developers need to exploit it. But that just means this headset will keep getting better as gfx cards and software improve further. Can't wait, i love it, i'm going to spend another thousand hours minimum in this over the next 12 months. I hope games companies deliver us more worlds to immerse in as this is the headset to do it with. Come on developers, we need worlds not "experiences". I've got the headset for it, now i'm just waiting for you.
I’m really happy with it so far. My only issue is with the game Elite Dangerous which has some weird behaviour with it that I’d love to try and work out…
