Summary: Microphone works only on OSX 10.4, 10.5, 10.6 (maybe 10.3 and earlier too, but I don't have those to test on). Microphone doesn't work on OSX 10.7 and 10.8, according to my customer who returned it, and many users on support forums and other Google search results (which everyone should read before they purchase a discontinued product such as these external iSights).
Summary: While using the iSight external firewire webcam on my Mac G5 tower with Panther 10.3.9 system software installed, I found it to have excellent video quality and to be very easy to use. Shortly after installing Leopard 10.5.1 however, the fun was over. My cam stopped working and no amount of tech fixes have brought it back. It now shows up as "unknown device" in the system profiler, and is not recognized in Yahoo or any other program I've tried.
Summary: For $150, I expect a crisp image with no soft edges in good lighting. What a disappointment, Apple. I even aimed it outside during sunlight, with the window open and nothing in between, and still got fuzzy soft edges. I suppose if you minimize the viewing window to it's smallest little box, it might look okay. This is my second iSight. I returned the first one because of the same issue, only worse. Too bad I gave it another chance.
Great camera, lousy software, no mount for iMac G4.

Summary: I purchased two iSights so that I can videoconference with my mom and sister. The cameras work fine (but do get very hot if you keep them on for a long time). The only problem I still have is with the software (iChat). It works videoconferencing with my mom, but does not work videoconferencing with my sister. All of us use Macs. I have researched extensively in the apple support site, without success... changed firewall settings, router settings... none worked.
Summary: Fuzzy images and feedback. That's not what I expected with the iSight, but it's what I got. After months of holding off, researching and reading reviews, I finally purchased two iSights, the Cadillac of video cams. "Like no other camera," the review says. As an avid Mac fan it pains me to say this, but I'd change that to "Like most other cameras." When we took the iSights out of the box and installed them, my wife and I were very pleased with the ease of instillation.
Summary: I just got my iSight today and guess what? I need to get the accessory kit to mount it on my flat panel display. If that requirement is in the above verbage I missed it, but the picture shows it happily on the top of the display. I'll add on to this once it's connected ( sitting under the display till UPS brings the accessory kit).
Summary: my dad bought me an isight about a year ago, and i love it! however, while it works great, it only works with macs, and since most people seem to have pcs, i can only use it with 2 or 3 of my friends and family, not what i was hoping for!
Summary: Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Web- bzw. nach einer TV Cam für meinen Mac Mini und meinen 60" Bildschirm. Positiv ist dass die Webcam läuft. War leider mit vielen anderen Webcam nicht möglich. Ergebnis ist aber auch nur durchschnittlich. Wenn Ihr eine wahnsinns TV Cam sucht nehmt die Logitech Web TV CAM HD, die lieferst ein sensationelles Bild.
