    I just received this from HTC support :

    "We are investigating on the backend why this is failing.  In order to keep you from having to wait needlessly, what I would like to do is offer you this as a workaround to a missing discount code:

    1.  This would require that you place the preorder number without the discount.  
    2.  You would provide me the order number which I would put on a list
    2.  When the orders for the Vive Pro 2 units ship to their new homes, we would revisit the list and go in and manually refund you $50

    If you'd like me to set that up for you, please make your order and provide me with the order number.  I will provide you with confirmation once that order number is on the list"


    So I just placed my order and emailed them my order number. Just waiting for the confirmation. 

    Me too. 

    I strongly suspect the discount issue is only happening to non-Americans.

    @testgrounds - Confirming here that it's HORIZONTAL and it's glorious. Here's hoping these headsets help drive 120+ as the minimal acceptable FOV moving forward.


    That's great news! Pimax headsets have 160 degrees Horizontal in Large FOV mode, 140 degrees in Normal FOV mode, and 120 degrees in Small FOV mode. So it looks like HTC has achieved what is considered Small mode on Pimax but far surpasses other headsets like the Reverb G2 and Valve Index. 

    I hope someday HTC reaches 140 Horizontal or higher as that peripheral vision is really nice.

  3. HTC never specifies on their website whether the 120 degrees is horizontal or diagonal. It just says in the specs sheet "Up to 120 degrees". 

    There is a HUGE difference between 120 degrees horizontal which is much wider than many standard VR headsets, and 120 degrees diagonal which in comparison, Reverb G2 has 114 degrees diagonal. 

    So can HTC answer this question clearly once and for all? Is it 120 degrees HORIZONTAL? Or is it 120 degrees Diagonal?
