    Do you have an estimated time scale for delivery or is it just wait and see ? Look forward to your views on it whenever you do get it.

    Pimax said the majority of backers would get their HMD by Xmas, but given they are only around the 500 mark realistically that is not going to happen, mine is about mid 4000 in the que :(

    Yes, their estimates are wrong to the point of concerning, considering this is not the first product they have released (Pimax 4K).

    I'm in the 5000s and I think the kickstarter goes at least into the 7000s, not to mention the original delivery estimate was February 2018 :rolleyes:. So yeah, you can basically ignore anything they say regarding production and delivery timelines. They've even started(?) taking orders from regular consumers with some, uh, "optimistic" promises about delivery dates for those, too. It'll show up when it shows up but don't make any plans around it.
