    "Works good...Works well...It's not the greatest zoom ever, and it's a tad slow, but if you lose or damage it, you didn't lose or break much....One note of caution, this is a right angle connector and it does not offer a great deal of offset from the PC chassis - be careful if you have multiple connectors you are using beside each other - you may need a lanyard based adaptor to allow for multiple side by side connectors on the computer."
