Default Difference between Pimax 5K Plus and 5K BE?

Not obvious to me, but there must be something to justify the $300 price difference!
Can anyone enlighten me?

From what little I have read, don't get the BE.

Thanks Don, but do you know the difference between them? I’m struggling to find this out.

BE as the name says is matched for business cases,a different setup to satisfy those kind of clients, where 5K+ is tuned for gaming and is cheaper!

I think I’ve worked out that the only real difference is that the BE has OLED screens, unlike the 5k plus and 8k.

Yes! It’s more comfortable but expensive in price. Maybe you only need it in office. For gaming both ok
