    I'm not defending the Pimax at all, I'm just saying I know how you talk and you are rude and you get angry very easily.

    Lol, I misread your post and thought you were getting it on the 13th, but now I see that is the date for people ordering on thursday.
    That response tho... holy crap.
    I think you calling them 5 star is a bit generous though.

    I MISSED IT omg ah work. Oh well next lot.. Wasn't going to pre-order cause i'm moving house in 3 weeks and wasn't sure when it would drop live or be shipped.
    I will 100% buy one, even if the Pimax comes, nothing wrong with having every set.

    Someone on the article said "it's sold out and pre-ordered all the way into august now. It may not be good value but it's better then the other options on the market. Although I will concede, it you do have a Vive right now, it is only $500 to upgrade so that's not bad."

    How can they be so useless at predicting consumer demand?

    Edit:2 It's not available in Australia. AT ALL??

    Norm and Jeremy from Tested have a poke around with the HP Reverb - and sum up their experience via other headsets (not the index) once they get back from their school trip.

    This is the direct cut and paste of another buyers post in Pimax forums.
    "Similar situation here, Derek is saying i am harassing him and he is insulting me, and i never used any bad language."

    Just for Bart who thinks Derek had every reason to tell me to watch my mouth and just wait.

    They admit they were not being very nice though, even if bad language wasn't used.

    This derek guy seems to be little over sensitive though, everyone at Pimax needs some customer service training for countries outside China.

    As someone mentioned in that thread, they seem to be behind on orders.

    So PayPal this morning decided in my favor and refunded me.
    Later today i get email from Pimax saying shipped bahahaha. But the tracking number is a fake, which seems a lot of people are being given fake ones on the forums.

    What a bunch of losers.

    Not really sure why you seem to subscribe that everything is a conspiracy.


    Pimax will give you the tracking number before its given to fedex, most companies do this, however pimax seem to have a longer delay between the point where its given to fedex, probably because they are busy.

    Whatever helps you sleep at night though, glad you got your refund.

    A lot of places will have consignment numbers before they're in the system, won't show up until the actual pickup/first depot scan and even then it could have a days delay.

    I've seen a few reviews for the pimax and seems to be a couple of folks on the iracing/simracing reddit subs that have theirs so units are getting out there steadily.

    Everything?
    I don't believe 9/11 was an inside job, i know chemtrails aren't real. I know religion isn't real, i know vaccines work, GMO's are good and yeah.. So maybe you are nuts.

    Called FedEx, they said it's definitely fake. What else would you like me to do sir Bart?

    With a bit of luck it turns up and i got a free headset, i mean PayPal refunded so yeah!
    Although still moving house soon, so probably won't ever see it.

    When i bought it it said get it by May 5th.
    I trusted that, being a real online retailer i've never had one lie like that in the past.

    Be patient and not jump to conclusions for no reason?

    You got your refund so it doesn't matter I guess.
