But for 100-150 dollars it just isn't remotely worth it. You HAVE to use their video service. So you have to have anyone that you want to talk to have the logitech account as well, and that is just dumb. Especially with their partnership with Google.
Also with interoperability with google talk or skype you should be able to use this as a speaker phone too which would be a HUGE plus, but without it it is an overpriced single use video camera.
If you have other family using a logitech camera AND their video calling service then it is worth it, otherwise wait and see what happens.
I returned mine after using and researching and being unable to find any definitive details about when this might change.
Now, on to the Mac Mini situation...
I use a Mac Mini connected to my ET5 as a media server to use with Plex. I had seen mention within the reviews that someone had luck using the TV Cam with a Mac. My Mac Mini is a mid-2010 model and still running Snow Leopard. Yes, I can upgrade to Mountain Lion, but Plex is much more stable under Snow Leopard and so I have chosen to stick with it for now. I plan on testing the TV Cam with my early 2008 MacBook running Lion to see if the OS version affects compatibility one way or the other, and will update my review later if I find any differences.
I connected the TV Cam to one of the USB ports on the back of my Mac mini. From there, I fired up my copy of Facetime that I had purchased from the App Store (0.99 cents) and was greeted by a message stating that my Mac had not detected a compatible video camera. I closed Facetime to go look for a video or web camera setting under preferences thinking that I might need to setup something there first, but that wasn't an option.Read more ›
- The picture/video quality is very good. The lighting in my room is mediocre, and yet the picture still comes out looking significantly better than with the web cams built into the MacBook and ThinkPad which I use in the same room.
- Build quality is excellent. This is something apparent from when you take the camera out of the box. The casing feels solid, and there is a steady hinge on the back of the camera that you can use to prop it onto your flat screen. There is just enough tension for the camera to feel secure on the TV set.
If only Logitech can update the Revue software to support video conferencing with users on Skype, Google Talk, or even FaceTime, rather than requiring Logitech Vid HD accounts, I can bump this review up to be 5 stars.
The Logitech TV Cam is packaged nicely (the attached velcro cable tie was a nice touch). It's very easy to connect and setup. Amazingly easy.
I love the remote control zooming in and out, and panning back and forth. The picture quality was fantastic. We connected with someone on her computer and she said it looked like she was watching TV, not a jittery webcam.
My concern was over privacy issues, and whether or not you could be invisible to others. I don't always need to be "available".
The answer is yes, it's like changing your status on your IM account.
It's a high-quality product, but again, you'll suddenly be thinking about filling up some blank space on your walls with artwork.
I recommend placing the webcam lower, like at the bottom of the TV to not get your ceiling in the picture.
Simple to install, plug and play. Zoom quality is phenomenal. Has the ability to pan and tilt while streaming. Not too obtrusive design wise in the room aesthetically. I strongly recommend this unit with the Logitech Revue. This is a must have with the system.
