    Looks good but so does the Odyssey +. The +'s fov is 110 and costs a hell of a lot less too. Interesting info though.

    Not impressed :rolleyes:. IMO, with the lenses setup to give 87 degree FOV, the new pimax would look just as, or possibly clearer then this headset - well maybe not....:), but for most people pretty darn good for the money. PIMAX 5K+ at 2 x 2560 / 87 degrees = 58 pixels per degree (VR-1 stated at better then 60 PPD) - so not bad.. the 8k X (if it ever happens) will be even better.

    Thanks for info nb

    Regardless of cost it’s good to see higher spec’d headsets being released

    Price of tech decreases as higher end features become mainstream
