So we got 2 kickstarer update messages today.
BOTH of them are very concerning if you ask me!
The first one for 8KX owners, if you have a RTX 3000 series card you can get 90Hz, “yay”
Except the wording used
“Offers Free Beta Update”
Maybe it’s just a bad use of English, but it sounds like they want to charge for new firmware updates?!
All firmware updates for devices should be free for any consumer product!
The only ones who charge are for business users, for things like server updates.
Even then I think that’s down right underhanded as well! So good thing I’m not a business
Second, as we all know is the downright ridiculous decision to add ransomware to PiTool!
Pay up your tax bill or we’ll stop you using the hardware
Sorry but an apology isnt good enough, this never should have happened in the first place!
I am fine with paying my taxes, but the problem is that the kickstarter has been delayed and you are sending items out separately!
The backer box contained many items which were free to backers! Yet we’re having to pay taxes for the retail price?!
So since we didnt pay any taxes for the headsets, I am fine with paying these taxes, UPTO the kickstarter price!
But seeing as we still have our controllers and wireless to ship, we’ll see what happens if the figure goes above that value.
But this is again thanks to the bad communication, and sometimes lack of it, from Pimax.
Sure there are some who didnt realise they had to pay taxes, but I think at first there was no mention of taxes originally on their site.
PImax have done SO many wrong things since the start of this kickstarter.
The ransomware alone is going to scare off a lot of customers now!
So what else can we except from Pimax in the future?
