Great Impressions and a Case tip!
Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2019
I ordered one for my meetings. It isn’t available in EU yet, so I bit the bullet and shipped it international.
Remote people have instantly commented on dramatic improvement in meetings... as you can probably expect. Several day trip meetings are now been postponed to “Owl It”. Quality is very good, so I can comment on how much this Pro version is versus the earlier one. I use Skype and MS Teams.
I do want to add a note about the case. It is a shame that Owl Labs don’t have a convenient case that comes with it. This isn’t the sort of hardware you want lying loose in a bag during transit.
I did discover that most Oculus Rift VR carry cases available on Amazon are an excellent dimension to fit he Owl (Pro or Regular) in with its power supplies and cables. I attached some photos of one Oculus Rift case I ordered. I cut the foam out and glued in some new foam to match the Owl. Works like a charm. I now can carry it separately to meetings or throw the case inside my larger everyday backpack. I just wish Owl Labs did include a case, even if it was an additional purchase option.
I honestly cant fault this for much, since there really isn’t anything else in the industry quite like it at the moment.
