Useless. Epic Design Fail. Other device works fine
1 week ago
Summary: This is a useless product. Require superfast internet. I have Ipad 3 and the Skype video call to Indonesia is normally clear. As soon as I switch to the TYCC20W, (connected to my brand new Panasonic Viera 50ST60), Skype video call is blurry. Conversation is choppy. Sometimes can only do voice call only. And even get cut off mid conversation. And as soon as I go back to the Ipad 3, video call is normal again.
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, Poor documentation, Poor quality, does not work
Summary: Overall nice picture quality and easy setup. The one major draw back that makes this camera average at best is that there is no zoom feature and it has such a wide field if you use this on your tv and are sitting on the couch you look very small and far away. You literally have to stand up and stand next to your TV to really see anyone's face. This kind of defeats the purpose of using it to skype, which was my primary reason for purchasing.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Simple Controls
Excerpt: Bought this to use with 60" LCD....poor quality. Also because given as a gift after 30 days, can't return. Have never had to return to RadioShack and was unaware of their strict policy. Was Not Written on Shipping slip that said you needed to keep for return! How ironic.....
Summary: Camera is good and does the job. Not enough settings for mic volume, brightness while you talk, speaker volume in Skype, etc. Camera got stuck on very dark screen after clicking the reset button in skype. That's a known problem that Skype and Panasonic should not let exist a second after they are aware of it. The solution is to connect it to the PC and choose Auto-Exposure under camera settings. This is not a solution though. Many people would know know how to do that.
Pros: Compact, Convenient
Cons: stuck on dark screen after clicking "reset" in skp
Summary: Bought this for my parents last year so could use on their smart TV skype in the lounge instead of them having to go upstairs to skype each week on their PC my brother in Australia. They love it and is a breeze to set up and integrate with their TV, not one problem with it since installed.
