    "No 64-bit = useless"

    June 30, 2010  |   By ogman

    Version: Luxand Blink 2.0

    Pros

    Who knows? Since it doesn't work with modern computers, who can tell.

    Cons

    Everything! Developers need to join the 21st century and support 64-bit.

    Summary

    No 64-bit = useless

    "I haven't tried this software"

    May 18, 2010  |   By Jack-Bxp

    Version: Luxand Blink 2.0

    Pros

    I was just reading comments about people being annoyed because cnet are advertising the program for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP - On the Luxand Blink website it clearly says it's for Vista and Windows 7 ONLY, cnet should correct this...

    Cons

    N/A - If you can't test a program because of incompatability, you shouldn't give it a low rating in my opinion. A lot of people don't read all the comments to know why a program is rated poorly.

    Summary

    From Luxand Blink website - "Luxand Blink! 2.0, released on 02/09/2010 - File size: 8.3 MB - Supported OS: Windows Vista and Seven 32bit only"

    "Whats the point of it?"

    May 17, 2010  |   By daviddreghorn

    Version: Luxand Blink 2.0

    Pros

    Nice idea and it works prity quick

    Cons

    it is no more secure than my password.

    Summary

    This is a nice idea, but I have to wonder why bother if it is no more secure than my password. To give it a test I coverd my webcam and then selected my normal login and simply logged in.

    Whilst it might save typing a few words, I can see no added security benifit

    "Does what it saids, but a bit slow."

    May 15, 2010  |   By nathancool

    Version: Luxand Blink 2.0

    Pros

    It did better than i thought it would, it recognizes the face in about 2 seconds and is easy to use.

    Cons

    It takes ages loading up, it is quicker just typing my password then waiting for it to boot up. Even when you have hibernated it, or even locked it, it takes about 60 seconds to get the program running.

    Summary

    It did better than i thought it would, it recognizes the face in about 2 seconds and is easy to use, it has changed the way i log on, however, it is slow, It takes ages loading up, it is quicker just typing my password then waiting for it to boot up. Even when you have hibernated it, or even locked it, it takes about 60 seconds to get the program running. Therefore, i rate this 4 stars, it is a good program, but one thing they could work on is the speed it takes to load.

    "Pig in a Poke"

    May 14, 2010  |   By DrTrocar

    Version: Luxand Blink 2.0

    Pros

    ZERO, stop billing this for any other operating systems other than VISTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    This will NOT download, nor install with anything other than Windows problem child, VISTA!! ALL software download websites are misleading their customers.

    Summary

    Even on their homesite Luxand will not download on anything other than Vista, period. But they tell you only "VISTA. ALL download sites including CNET, Tucows, Softpedia and Brother FAIL to inform of this. This gets rave reviews and is FALSELY billed for working on other Windows operating systems. VISTA ONLY, repeat, VISTA ONLY.

    But it failed to attract me because it took other two faces of my friend's. I had not authorized their faces on my computer. And this is weird.
