Micro Garbage

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: Microsoft fails again! I can't tell you how many times this company has disappointed me and caused me to waste countless hours trying to get one of their products to work as advertised. This product is crap. It worked for a day and then stopped. The OS says the device is working properly...so why doesn't it work. None of the software titles I have recognize it anymore. I'm tired of screwing with poorly designed products from their untalented developers.

Don't buy!!!

3D Knight "Paul", Amazon

  • Summary: Don't buy it unless you are Microsoft developer... The camera came without any drivers or software CD. I've spent hours and hours installing it, searching online for the drivers, contacting Microsoft customer care - noone was able to solve the installation issues... After installing ten different SDK's and other type of software, my (very stable, clean and perfectly working) Windows 7 system has crashed. I had to return the camera to Amazon.

  • Summary: After finally buying this product, I would say I am not impressed. The games that are availible just are not that great, and the sensor itself just doesn't seem to pick up your movements really well. I tried playing golf on kinect sports 2 and found myself getting very aggrivated with the fact that it would tell you that all you had to do to change clubs was stick your hand out to the right, but it wouldn't pick it up.

'Near mode' is of questionable value - $100 more - and why no XBox 360 support?

Morimoto "Morimoto", Amazon

  • Summary: All of this is AFAICT based on working with both the Kinect for Windows sensor and XBox 360 sensor in VS 2010. Other developer comments and corrections are welcome. I feel Microsoft is trying to convince developers that the 'near mode' is somehow qualifying the Kinect for usable input from users at normal laptop or desktop distances in the Windows environment, buts its ability there is very much in question.

NOT a satisfied customer.

Don K Schoemaker, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: I was SHOCKED when I opened the box and the Kinnect for Windows contained NO OPERATING SOFTWARE... huh? Why are you selling this AMAZON? It is a $250.00 paperweight unless your a programmer. When I buy electronics I expect them, for the most part, to be plug and play or at the very least to have some drivers to load. This comes with NOTHING, absolutely no software. Plugging it in does nothing.

  • Cons: Движение на экране происходит с задержкой 1-2 секунды (на телеке выставлен режим "игровой"). В стрелялки\бродилки не поиграть, управление топорное. Шагаешь по комнате, а на экране - как будто стреляками на клавиатуре управляешь - игроку не пройти в дверь, не развернуться к монстру и т.п. Короче, ерунда. Кучу игр перебрал, но сенсор оказался гораздо хуже мыши и клавиатуры. Если бы не было секундного отклика - может было бы интересней. =( Ставлю 1 балл за высокую цену и...

  • Summary: Verkligen tråkigt. Responsen är inget vidare. Förstår inte hur man kan tycka sånt här trams är kul. Sen att det kostar lika mycket som en ny Xbox 360 om man ska ha ett spel till också är ju hutlöst.
