Its a microphone only Heidi could yodel to.

Summary: The camera and microphone feature was unique and the price point was right to try it out, I felt like it would be a good purchase. I brought it because of the reputation of Blue. It's not a product I will be using. The microphone on the laptop picks up better than using this disappointment.
Summary: I got this refurbished for $10. At that price, I guess I can't complain. Sound quality is excellent, but the volume is very low. As a result, you need to put the microphone close to your mouth, rendering the webcam useless.
Summary: the video is OK in bright light with little movement, but add either a low light situation or movement and it fails miserably. I got this to upgrade from a MacAlly IceCam2, which is not HD, but gives far better results, mounts easier to an LCD monitor or laptop and is less expensive.
Summary: I guess the saying "you get what you pay for" applies here. Everything I read about the product before I purchased was true. Pros: Out-of-box plug n' play, microphone produces good quality audio, nice case, and low price.
Summary: I was horribly disappointed by the unit I received. It is obvious from my experience that many of the units have defective cameras. That is the only way I can explain my experience as compared to many of the positive reviews and actual videos I have seen on the net of this item.
Summary: I don't understand what good spec claims do if a web cam doesn't come close to achieving them in the applications under which it operates. I bought the Eyeball 2.0 to use with ichat and have not used it with any other programs. I have a Mac Pro with 12 gigs of Ram and a broadband connection.
Summary: I bought a Blue brand because I heard good things, however, this webcam is a piece of JUNK! The video quality is very low, and lags ALOT. The audio quality is OK but is very quiet. Don't waste your money.
Summary: Tried this on my Macbook Pro alongside the built-in iSight. The sound isn't really up to the quality that I expect from Blue, and there was just no comparison for image quality. The lighting hue was wrong, there was a huge amount of pixellation, and it performed as though it was nearly pitch black...
Summary: I'm really disappointed and unimpressed by this vendor's mindfulness to design. Too much marketing, not enough engineering! I mean... SOMEONE in that company had to say "Hey! I don't think this should fall off my monitor sixteen times per day!
Pros: It's very unique looking. Sound quality is a step above most webcams I've seen, but it won't WOW you the way the packaging makes it sound.
Cons: I was overall disappointed in this product. For one, this device is mounted on a base that is nothing short of a joke. It WILL not, no matter what intuitive position you try to put the thing in, REPEAT- WILL NOT sit properly atop a desktop-size LCD display. I've tried my 25-inch, my 19-inch and a...
