Summary: Bought this from "Amazon.com LLC". Uning it for almost 4 years now. It's a great & high quality webcam. With the proper software (i use Cyberlink YouCam) works flawlessly and with added features that its native software doesn't have (eg. security motion tracking). High definition 720p video. Autofocus works nicely. Microphone is great and works from from distance. Still image and video image quality is great.
Summary: The Web Cam works excellent with Windows 8. Auto focus is a great feature, you do not have to adjust anything by hand and it has a vast amount of features that are software driven. It's small and light weight and the built in stand actually works like it is supposed to.
Summary: Returned for refund. Overall video quality was poor. It had jerky motion at 640X480 resolution. The software is very basic only suitable for a webcam. The $15.00 Old creative live cam I purchased in 1990 has better resolution. I also have the 1.3 mp optia pro VF0380 and it comes with a ton of software suitable for surveillance, time lapse etc. resolution is 1920 x1020 and no jerky motion. Much better.
Summary: I've owned and used this for about two years and let me start off and say that it's really a great camera and the twist feature to silence the microphone is great on conference calls. The Creative Live effects are a hoot as well, these were some of the main reasons for me to buy this in the first place. I just recently found out due to upgrading to Windows 8 that this device isn't supported by Creative and using it under Windows 8 causes system crashes.
Summary: Recived this in Dec and have tried it on 3 different computers and get no pictur. Sent email to Creative Labs Tech Support which they responded to quickly, however, their advise was to try "fixes I had already told them I had tried in my first email. Now waiting for their response. The rating I gave is based only on the problems I've had so far and any future rating will be based on the outcome of my support request.
