Pimax 8K and 5K Plus, prices and specs

The wait is over: Pimax, Chinese group that develops virtual reality viewers of which we already talked about, first started the pre-orders and then officially launched on the market its new 8K and 5K Plus viewers (as well as a new release of the 5K, the “Business Edition” or 5K BE).

All prices of VR viewers

Prices are not really chea: 900 dollars for 8K viewer, 700 dollars for 5K Plus and 1,000 dollars for 5K BE. To make a comparison, Htc Vive Pro costs 800 dollars, Htc Vive 500 dollars, Oculus Rift costs 600 dollars, Oculus Quest 400 dollars and Oculus Go 200 dollars, while Playstation VR costs 500 dollars.

Delivery Times

As for the delivery time, while the specimens booked in the pre-order phase will be shipped in the second half of January 2019, so around 90 days after pre-order, viewers ordered from now on should be shipped from mid-February onwards (and in any case after all the copies sent to the members of the campaign have been handed over Kickstarter and then all the viewers of the pre-orders).

On Kickstarter it was a success

Pimax 8K was developed thanks to the funds raised by the most successful Kickstarter campaign ever (4.236 million dollars collected in 2017), while Pimax 5K BE was offered to campaign supporters instead of 5K as originally planned. Here are the technical specifications of the two new Pimax viewers.
