    You should really stop watching Adored TV videos.

    Surprised nobody has posted this. But, MRTV got his hands on a Pimax Crystal. Here's the video.

    Please help me to spend my money wisely. VR configuration

    The problem with buying a mini PC, is that you need a monitor too. Are you going to lug a monitor around with you as well?? But, a PC should be cheaper than an similarly spec'd laptop. As I said, the base-stations don't track anything. The Trackers track themselves. It depends on the size of...

    Please help me to spend my money wisely. VR configuration

    You are welcome. Sorry for not getting back to earlier but I was away for the weekend. Thanks for the detailed post. That helps a lot. I just presumed you were buying everything new, but, if you are getting the Valve Index with controllers and 2 base stations for a good price, then I think...

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    Just answering both of these posts. And there is the important phrase, you "sample all shipments" You don't test every single part from every single shipment. And when you do your tests, do you put things upside down, or inside or not correctly seated etc. etc. Or do you make sure...

    Please help me to spend my money wisely. VR configuration

    I think nobody knows exactly what you are trying to do. Is the motion capture going to be graphically intensive? While the Valve index is good, it's very expensive. And if you aren't gaming, are the knuckle controllers a needless added expense? What was your reasoning behind picking the...

    Pimax Crystal: Pimax's answer to compete with Varjo Aero (Premium on the cheap....er)

    For me, it wasn't the lack of updates it was the surprise at them launching a Steam Deck competitor. If I was interested in buying the Crystal I would be concerned about Pimax focusing their attention on a completely new type of product. They haven't exactly got the best record for quality...

    Pimax Crystal: Pimax's answer to compete with Varjo Aero (Premium on the cheap....er)

    It's a really odd decision. It's like they are just throwing out products to see what sticks or they are just building up a portfolio that will entice a bigger company to buy them out.

    Pimax Crystal: Pimax's answer to compete with Varjo Aero (Premium on the cheap....er)

    The ease of use is definitely something that Pimax have to improve. It's not just about the FOV and resolution. As VR grows, the User experience will become more and more important. But that's not the main problem with Pimax. I have only two experiences with a Pimax headset. The first was...

    Pimax Crystal: Pimax's answer to compete with Varjo Aero (Premium on the cheap....er)

    I don't understand that reaction about VR headsets. I have seen the same thing on Reddit in the Vive Pro 2 threads. Say anything good about any other headset and you are immediately attacked. It's a strange mindset. VR is still at a stage where nobody can say that one headset is the best for...

    This is the most absurd pile of nonsense that I have read in this thread so far.

    Join us on November 3rd as we unveil AMD RDNA™ 3 to the world!

    Regarding Mindshare, I think it will, especially combined with the current Nvidia problems. And it won't be just one generation. If RDNA 3 is good, it will building on the reputation gained from RNDA 2. Because the RDNA 2 product line was very good. It was a release with no major flaws, cards...
