Cool Looking, Not Penguin Friendly

Summary: I have no idea if it works well under Windows, my laptop runs Linux. It does look great though. :)
Pros: Looks great. It's very small, and doesn't look bad clipped to the laptop. Also, the USB cable is short, which is perfect for a laptop.
Cons: It didn't specifically claim to be Linux compatible, so I guess I can't fault it. Sadly, I thought I had researched enough to verify it would work under Linux. It does not, at least not with Ubuntu 9.10.
Summary: This item is really good if you want a webcam for your laptop it has a little clip that attaches to the laptop.. For the amount I paid for it, it works really well and has really good picture quality.. It also arrived super fast :)
Summary: Gave this to my Girlfriend to christmas so when can talk more often while she is at school. Right off the bat she had problems with it. We use Skype to talk with it and after about 50 seconds the blue light on the camera turns off and her picture freezes. She can see me but i cant see her.
Summary: I bought this webcam for an HP netbook and couldn't get it to work in Ubuntu Hardy Heron, had everyone in the office give configuring it a try, wouldn't work past 5 seconds. So I gave it to my niece who has a Toshiba notebook with Vista, works great.
Summary: once you get over the installation process everything else is pretty simple just plug and play, the picture quality is better compared to my previous webcams. so all in all it is a good product.
Pros: I bought this cam to attempt to fix some video/mic quality issues with built-in one on my laptop. I'm happy to say that this was the perfect solution. The video/mic quality has been with both Skype and MSN messenger.
Summary: I bought this webcam thinking it had a built in microphone so I could talk to my brother back east online. When I received the product and got it all installed on my computer, I discovered there was no microphone like the seller said in the ad.
Excerpt: I bought my Creative Live Notebook Cam on Amazon for a very reasonable £15.26 and with the super saver option I had no postage and packing to pay. I didn’t need a big fancy looking cam with all the super duper mods and cons, I just wanted a cam to be a cam.
