Summary: bought this to compensate for the poor built-in webcam on toshiba's 755d laptop. such a waste of money! the purpose is for HD web chats - high quality pictures and video - when i plugged it in the video quality was little different than the built-in webcam - very poor, very disappointed, i am returning this immediately to costco
Horrible, sub-standard picture quality, definitely NOT HD

Summary: I record instructional videos and lectures with my webcam, and felt it was time to upgrade to one that had HD and tech more suitable for 64x software. The Creative Live! inPerson HD cam seemed to have the features I needed, but once it was installed I learned the truth of the other negative reviews. The Live! inPerson cam has an absolutely unacceptable level of picture quality.
It's been said before...good audio, poor video, terrible price

Summary: It's a rare instance when out of hundreds of reviews I give something a 1-star. But I do when its appropriate... INSTALLATION: Step 1: plug into USB Step 2: Install software from disc = this took FOREVER. I only selected 1 of the 3 total packages it wanted to install by default. But even on a beefy laptop there is no "installs in a snap" experience. Plan to brew a pot of coffee before this process finishes.
Summary: By Philip R. Heath "Gadgets, Music, & Books" Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2KKX1CDJDZ0CW They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I think that the video much more telling than anything I could write. I am very disappointed in the quality of the video this webcam records, and I cannot recommend it - especially given its rather high cost. Give the Logitech Webcam C310 a try instead.
Summary: Am very disappointed with this camera the picture quality is not on bar with Logitech c910. Much worse is the it keeps crashing my skype. This is quite outrageous since this camera supposed to have build in video encoder and is skype certified while my old Logitech c910 dosen't have it. Thanks to Amazon am returning this camera with big disappointment.
Average Quality Cam... "In Use By Another Application"

Summary: Comes with lots of options & I like that the software is on the device & not my computer... except for the useless bloatware that installs itself and even makes itself a part of your start-up. As for the actual camera, it's decent but not up to par with the price. My biggest gripe is that, most of the time I get a message that reads, "camera is in use by another program" even though it is not. Sometimes this goes away if I restart my computer.

Terrible picture even when it's 720p. Excellent sound

Summary: I received Creative inPerson HD webcam a few days ago. I bought it for the following reasons: - skype certified - onboard H264 compression (for lower CPU load) - 720p video calling on Skype When I installed it and tried on Skype, I thought it doesn't switch to HD calling, remaining with SD. I installed latest Creative drivers, then latest skype, then latest DirectX. Still - quality is poor. I wrote to Creative support - no reply so far.
Summary: Leider habe ich mich bei dieser Kamera von "Testberichten" blenden lassen. Die Bildqualitität ist "unterirdisch" (jedenfalls im Vergleich zu den iSight-Kameras, die ich von meinen Macs gewohnt bin). Ich habe diese Kamera auf Basis der Tests mit höchsten Erwartungen gekauft und traute meinen Augen kaum. HD-Auflösung ist leider nur über Pixelmaße definiert. Deshalb ist die Angabe Full HD bei der Kamera auch vollkommen korrekt.
Conclusion: Atentos al comprar este productos. NO ES COMPATIBLE CON NINGUN SO DE 64 BITS. La mayoría de los vendedores o no tiene la menor idea o dicen que sí. Pero no, no es compatible. SI tenés una PC con windows xp 32 bits, del año 30 o con un windows 98, dale para adelante. SI no, huíle. Los drivers están llenos de bugs, la salida digital cuesta varios intentos para activarla y hacerla funcionar.
Pros: Sale 2 pesos., Relativo buen nivel de sonido
Cons: Teconología vieja., No es compatible con ningún SO de 64bits, La versión de Dell no tiene drivers (Modelo SB0020), Usa un slot PCI standard.
