I'm pretty disappointed

Stephen W. Roberts "swr999", Amazon
19 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought Rovio about 8 months ago. When it arrived, I got it set up the first evening with really no problem. So I sort of figured that the negative reviews were probably from PC and networking noobs who just weren't "getting it".

Nice when it works

Irwin J. Gordon, Amazon

  • Summary: I have several WowWee robots which work great. Sadly, this is not one of thewm. The first one I received could not be programmed as it would not establish a USB link to three different computers and also had an inoperative LED.

Nice, but need serious improvement.

  • Summary: Let me give you the short version: If you're a techy/geek and love getting your hands dirty, and are determined to solve various hardware / software problems no matter how frustrating they might be, feel free to pick one of these up.

  • Summary: Pros: Easy setup, cool "toy" Cons: Miserable indoor video, would leave dock on its own, headlight is a joke. Sent it back and can't reccomend it.

Lots of problems

Larry T. Mcneal "Gadget Guru", Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: Got this yesterday, 12/30/09, assembling was a snap. Went through the setup procedure and charged the batteries for about four hours. Mid day sunshine through the windows still didn't give much of a picture. Awfully dim. The headlight was similar to lighting a candle in sunlight.

Good idea but still needs more work

J. Girado "jgirado", Amazon
30 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this little robot because I want my family and friends abroad to be able to communicate with me in a cool way (Skype and the likes are too "static" ;-). The browser user interface is very well designed and easy to learn and use. The idea es very good but unfortunately it lacks key features.

WowWee Rovio is a toy for computer savoy adults.

James Goddard "Carpetguru", Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a super fun gadget. It does require some computer skills to make the robot available through any computer anywhere in the world. It does require that you do not just follow the instructions blindly and insert the disc.

NEEDS LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS

Raag, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: It is true that it is a mobile webcam. Web interface is really good. I checked with IPhone but the browser crashed 2 out of three time on IPhone. I have not checked the two way Audio yet so I can not comment on it. For this high price the webcam pic quality is really bad and way too dark.

  • Summary: "Rovio, sur le papier tres bon, mais en realité un temps de reaction (2-3 sec) qui le rend inutilisable. Pas mal de videos youtube qui le montrent. A quand la V2 qui corrige ca?"
