    Anyone used it before? I wanna know how well it performances. Kinda cool when it logs in based on facial recognition.

    It's laggy as hell. I always get tired of waiting for the recognition and just type the password..

    I tried using for about a month hoping it would get better at recognizing me. It never really did. I wear glasses though, which may make me harder to identify. I would get tired of waiting for it to work and just type my password in. I have now turned it off.

    I saw a video of a guy use a picture of himself to gain access. I am not sure where the security slider was when he did that. After I saw that though I kind of dismissed it as a gimmicky thing.

    I don't think smartlogon gets any better at recognizing a specific user.. It have the option to take a couple of pics that will be used as "keys".. so anything different from that series of pictures might make the program a bit confused.. not sure tho ! =p

    Sounds like some cheapo program they whipped up out of the blue for kicks.

    It works the same as any other manufacturers and as far as whipped up its been around for years. Early fingerprint detection was just as bad and as insecure but theyve gotten alot better than facial recog.

    Problem with low resolution facial detection is there isnt a whole lot of detail to work from and a good photo of the person can be used to log in. Poor lighting when taking your login photo can lead to hard to login under good light and vice versa.

    If your having trouble, take shots in all sorts of lighting situations, will make it easier in the future. Remember each successful log in also creates a new photo from which to compare your face.
