Where's the RGB lighting? RGB on the sides, RGB on the lens (so that people see you have RGB), RGB digitally added to the stream, RGB everywhere because, Razer.

"Razer was going to sell the Stargazer for $199, but it lowered the price of the camera to $149."

Probably because they realized that the C920 is just as capable and still half the price.... This is why I haven't bought a Razer product in years.

As much as I dislike Razer, the Stargazer is still the first non-Dev kit Realsense webcam on the market. $150 isn't bad for speeding up Windows logins. My cheapo fingerprint reader can be finicky at times. Would still wait for reviews though.

C920 isn't even in the same ballpark, mate. It's not a 3D camera with depth perception like this one. This is based on Intel's Realsense SR300 camera. Supports 3D mapping of objects, gesture control, facial analysis and so on...

Also, C920 doesn't do 60fps at any resolution.

I mean, the SR300 devkit itself costs $149, I am assuming that they cut a deal with Intel, otherwise I don't see how they can even afford to sell it at 149.

The C920 is just a webcam.

if only logitech was capable of makeing good software, and this is saying a lot as razor had a bug which slowly ate 25% of all my cpu processes due to it slamming a single core till i killed the software.

i have one of the 1080p logitech's
the video is horribly compressed, not option to uncompress it and do my own processing, the audio is horrifically compressed, oh, and no mater what i do, if i zoom all the way in or out, it crashes, if i used motion sensor, it crashes, if i take a picture, it crashes.

logitech makes fantastic hardware, but the software kills every single one of their products.
