    Great Webcam

    I got this as a birthday present and I love it. Microphone is awesome and crystal clear. This camera actually works better in low-lights conditions. I use it with Windows Messenger. When video calling, it lags a bit, but most webcams do.Video quality also downgrades a bit. You have to set the ressolution to 352X288 to zoom and pan and tilt, but that only changes the size of the video box. Picture quality isn't crystal celar, its a bit grainy. Overall a very nice webcam. You can also add cool video and picture effects.

    Don't Bother

    While this cam might provide a decent picture, what good is it if you can't put it on your laptop screen? The clip on mine broke after about 3 months of gentle use. In addition, the Windows Live button on the top of the cam gets pressed accidentally all the time. If you don't want to make a call through Windows Live Call (and I never do), it always asks if I want to install Windows Live Call. This got annoying very quickly - the button should have been located somewhere else on the camera, somewhere you're not always pressing in order to simply mount the camera on your computer. Went back to my old Creative webcam and it still works fine.

    Wonderful quality in video and audio! Camera swivels very nicely. No wheels or small pieces that can break off. The Windows Live Call Button on the top of the unit is more flat and has a delay on when to display the calling screen, which is handy for when your attaching it to your computer; no misread presses. The only problem I had was getting it detected by Windows Live Messenger, which is funny, because its what the camera was designed for. I tried it out on Skype and it works flawlessly. Great Camera!

    I've been using the cam for a little bit now and like the video quality. My wife and I can see each other pretty well! Like the small design & cool carrying case. There's a mic on the webcam too and it provides pretty good sound. The only thing that I don't love about it is that I can't use it over on my desktop PC because it won't attach to that monitor (monitor is too wide)...only to my laptop monitor. Overal - great webcam.

    horrible

    I bought this web cam with high expectations. The reviews seem to rave it. However, with first use I was horribly disappointed. Not only is the video quality poor (color and resolution), but its choppy!! It continually would flash white or cut out the bottom of the screen like an old bad movie that has a scratched reel. Not something I can use to communicate with loved ones from afar ...

    Really clear webcam

    Very pleased with this product. My family in England say I am much clearer than my previous webcam and the microphone is excellent. It seems to adjust to the lighting in the room which is great. I love the fact that it attaches to my laptop so I'm more mobile when using Skype. It does seem to get quite warm when I leave it plugged in but that's my only complaint.

    This webcam is great! I like it a lot. The resolution is great on it for the price. The only thing I noticed that wasnt too great was when I sat in front of a window when it was sunny out. The camera had a hard time adjusting to the light.

    If you are just recording something, the picture is perfect, bright and clear, sound=amazing. But if your using it to talk to somebody like on msn live, the picture downgrades alot but they still make it extremely easy to use.

    Larger than it appears

    Judging from the pictures of this, I expected this camera to be small and compact. When I opened up the package, it was huge. When attached to my 12" screen on my laptop it looks like a mattress balancing on a bottle of wine.
