    I would avoid this product simply on the basis that it is associated with Facebook.

    Linus is extremely naive and gullible to actually believe there is privacy with this device by trying to sell the illusion of privacy in the video. Damn, I bet face book paid him at least 7 figures for this one video.

    well, the product is actually great for the money and the services you get out of it, I just bought it despite all the controversy. for privacy concerns, after all the scandals Facebook will take privacy seriously as they have no choice.

      Just some thoughts - Isn't it a little too expensive for some fancy webcam features? As a smart device, it's quite lacking in smart home focus. I have a Lenovo Smart Display that does webcam calls as well and honestly, it's been working great. I don't see myself needing loads of webcam features for video calls with my family. I do agree and hope Facebook will work on their privacy issues though.

    i hope you got paid a lot for this Linus. I was counting on you to actually give me an honest reaction, but i agree with the majority of the comments. Makes me wonder how this collaboration came about. Facebook is really trying to push this on people if they are seeking out youtube influencers who have built a trust amongst their followers. They must really want this in your house. I'm not on facebook so its pretty much worthless to me, but this just has my spidey senses tingling. I don't trust it.

    And here's the fucking thing- you spend $700 for these things (one for you, another for a family member you want to chat with), and then you get sent to FB jail for 30 days (or even a permanent ban), and this thing becomes useless. Just like all of their other shit.
    I've been to FBJ many times because I don't agree with their leftist fascist views. When in jail, Messenger is blocked, all FB contacts you're syncing to your phone are gone, any app that you've used your FB credentials to log in to are now useless, and so on.
    Fuck zuck. Fuck FB. And fuck linus for sucking their cocks to make this infomercial.

    This product has revealed just how far reviewers are in the clutches of these big companies. (Yes, I know Linus says this is sponsored by Facebook) No review of this type of product is complete without some full and frank discussion of security and privacy concerns. Not a mention of it here or on Justine's channel. The product could easily become a close relative of Orwell's Telescreen.

    REALLY?!? No one is going to buy that! what where they thinking? Facebook Made it! why would anyone spend $200 for a box that does fancy facetime, made by facebook.
    All that privacy stuff is a lie too. in a year facebook will start monitoring it and doing their normal spying like they always do, saying that it was used to plan a terror attack
    Plus I could get a old $150 ipad from ebay or kijiji and a stand for it and use it just like this and play netflix, spotify, etc on it

    I won't be surprised if zucc crawled out of that thing in the middle of the night and started licking your ears. Linus himself would have locked it in an opaque metal box and thrown it in the garbage. That thing will record every single thing and send it to amazon and shit. You talk to someone about something and boom you're seeing ads related to it on your phone and computer as soon as the call ends. No thanks zucc

    If this thing works as shown in the video, I'm really impressed with the software complexity. They should sell a device with just the camera and localized tracking hardware/software as a creative media product (twitch streamers and similar types of content producers, video podcasts, etc).

    I just watched that old video on how LMG makes it's income. You know the one where Linus states that their integrity is the most valuable asset, and deliberately avoiding sponsored, non-reviews that take the form of a review would never feature on the channel.
    This "showcase" definitely looks like a non-review review to me. He doesn't once ask any of the pressing questions; 'Why should we care about it?' 'Does it solve a problem or create one for it to solve?' or 'Would I buy one?'
    Food for thought.
