How would you say the clarity of the oddesy + is relative to other headsets you've used. I know they use a 1200ppi figure due to the way the "blend" the pixels to get rid of the SDE, but I'm wondering what that does to clarity/scene resolution. I'm debating getting one later this year depending on when I get a better computer that or a Pimax. Till then my Rift works well enough.

I have used the Rift, Vive, Vive Pro, OG Odyssey. The odyssey+ is better than all of them. I have 0 screen door effect but can see the pixel texture if stare very hard at the sky, but that is a given with the current VR screen resolution limitations. I have a better picture out of the O+ than I did with the other headsets.

Are these through the lens photos of the HMD?

It sure looks like it's through the lens. Very nice shot at that. Hard to get through the lens pics.

Yes, I have the Odyssey plus also and the resolution is that good.

Any links to said horror stories? 95% of the feedback I’ve seen from those whom have received their units has been positive, at least from what I’ve read (which is quite a bit of reading).

Ya, that sounds odd. Everything I have read or watched about the pimax 5k has been very positive. I haven't come across any negative reviews.

OMG! At first I thought these were actual photos of the real thing (like real world, in cockpit photos). It took me reading your post and a couple of minutes to realize these are "in game" shots in what appears to be through the lenses. WOW. !!

Anyway, as I've posted in a couple of other places, you all should read this article. Don't be mislead by the title. This is what's in the pipeline and coming soon to a HMD near you. An important take away from the article is that Qualcomm’s reference designs are use by competing HMD vendors for their "proprietary" HMD's and that's not just for the "standalone" HMD's.

I`ve read about issues in relation to backers still not having their hmd`s etc. and a lot of promises unfulfilled. I just would not trust them myself and will wait for the new CV2 or main players to release the next gen products. As the saying goes “act in haste, repent at leisure”. In the end it`s up to people`s own choice whether to risk it or not.

Edit- Those picks from the SO+ look quiet good, I was very close to buying one during the Black Friday reduction.
