Razer hit a "not so" home run!
Reviewed in Canada on April 6, 2018
I've been off and on streaming to Twitch for a couple of years now. Recently I have been placing a lot of focus on the quality of my streams. I've used lots of webcams to enhance the quality of my streams; I have used Logitech's 920 & 922 as well as Razer's Stargazer. I now use a green screen regularly and I decided to give the Razer Kiyo a try, due to its light on the front.
I can confidently say that if you are a regular streamer/youtuber, you definitely should purchase the Razer Kiyo. The light is bright, but not overwhelming. It is nice and clean and does not create shadowing on my green screen. The image quality and extremely clear and the camera does not run into any glitches (unlike the Razer Stargazer.)
***UPDATE*** June 6, 2018
Just wanted to give an update; I purchased the Razer Kiyo on March 25, 2018. I have used the camera light to moderate, sometimes between 2 to 4 hours of stream sessions twice a week. Some of the light bar on the front of the camera has burnt out , which really defeats the purpose of this camera. I have contacted Razer with my issue and hope to get some technical support for a possible replacement. I will write an update once I receive their response.
**Update** June 6, 2018
I have sent all my information to Razer and now I am waiting a response. This process has taken almost two weeks and I have yet to have a solution issued to me. I will continue to update. This is my first time using Razer Customer service, and it seems quite delayed.
The price may be high for most, there are lots of cheaper alternatives for a traditional webcam, but the light as well as the image quality on this webcam are top notch. I would highly recommend this webcam for streamers/youtube creators.
