Great video, quality audio, easy set-up
26 July 2013
Summary: By J. Lewis This little unit easily clamps onto the top of our 24" Dell monitor and provides great video quality. The audio is rather hollow in our office in comparison to the headset I've been using, but the quality is good and there is no feedback issue with the Dell sound bar. The setup was simple and Skype found the camera and the mike without a hitch. We're very happy with this purchase and, of course, Amazon delivered it about 38 hours after I placed my order.
Summary: This is an upgrade for me. My old Creative product is still good but a lot has changed in five years! This model is superior both in photo quality and in the included software. And if I remember correctly, this one is at least $25 cheaper than my old one. If you have a desktop and haven't upgraded your video camera within the last few years, this one is worth the money.
Summary: By James Duckett For $60, I think you can do better with a Logitech. But it is okay and it performs well. The thing that I do like is that the mic works very well. It picks up noise all around the room (which can sometimes be a bad thing, but, oh well). The camera does the 720 with no problem but in the world of 1080p I'd rather pick up something with the extra bit of clarity.
Summary: By CGScammell This little webcam is only 720p so by today's standard is considered old technology. On an older computer monitor the inferior video is not that noticable, and is good enough for basic webcam functions like chatting. The audio is clear. The webcam is small and is designed to lay evenly on top of any monitor. That it does, although by the looks of it one would think it would fall off. I had no problem placing this on a desktop or on a laptop.
Easy Setup / Good Quality Image / Does The Job For Me

Summary: By frankp93 "frankp93" I had a minor glitch installing the driver on 64-bit Windows 7. When I first plugged in the USB cable Windows correctly identified the cam. After installing the bundle however, Windows lost device recognition until after I rebooted - not a big deal but something to be aware of. The USB cable is about 4 feet long. I wish it were a couple of feet longer for my setup.
Summary: By Lisa M. Hendey "Mom, Blogger, Podcaster, Author" If you are someone for whom the technical details of a webcam or the level of image definition is not a problem, the Live!Cam Connect HD may be a good solution. The camera is plug and play -- I unboxed it, plugged it into my macbook pro, and was recording two minutes later.
Good performance and a nice bundle but can't dethrone the C910

Summary: By J.H.S. I'm comparing the Creative to the comparably priced Logitech C910 which I also own. Build quality: The build of the Logitech is much more sturdy and solid, especially the clamp. The clamp on the Creative Live feels flimsy in comparison, although it does adequately support the web cam on the lid of a laptop. However, on a thicker desktop LCD monitor, the Logitech fits much better.
