I couldn't get it to work

Terry, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I used the web cam on Yahoo and the picture was so small, no one knew it was me. I use an online service to visit inmates and the service would not recognize the camera. I returned it. What a pain.

No Software for Mac?!

Eric Christopher Sanderson "Eric", Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: I didnt realize they dont have mac compatible software, ya i can plug the camera in and it works but i have no controls or any additional features of the camera. Wish i wouldve known that could have gotten the same result for a lot less money. Or i wouldve gladly spent more on a camera with mac compatible software.

  • Summary: It can work under MAc OS X ( Lion ) BUT no setup/control, video is overexposed ( day-time ) and sound quality is very very bad. The worst Creative product I've ever owned.

Makes a brightly lit room look like the deepest cavern.

R, Amazon
23 April 2011
  • Summary: This camera is absolute rubbish. With all my lights on, blinding to the naked eye, this camera spits out an image that is dark and low-contrast. It looks like a cave. Even daylight appears muted, with washed out colors with a bad tinge to them. No amount of software adjustment appears to fix this. Of course, I can't install the packaged software or downloading anything useful from Logitech. It claims to be Mac compatible but the software is Windows-only.

  • Summary: This product does not work. Every time I use it, I have to reload the software to use it again. Their customer support is also quite bad. I have been trying to get answers for my problems for months to no avail. DON'T BUY!!!!

KEEP DROPPING!

Duane Hatton "Big Belter", Amazon
5 August 2010
  • Summary: I noticed the price keeps dropping on this one and for GOOD REASON! I bought the top 2 webcams AND this one at the same time, to see which came out on top for ME. THIS was a waste of time..don't bother! For $10 more get Microsoft LifeCam Cinema or for $15-20 more, get the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 / QuickCam Pro 9000 THIS webcam is NOT true ANYTHING..I don't know how they can advertise it the way they do but they do. 1. IT'S FIXED FOCUS 2. NO WIDE ANGLE 3.

Doesn't work with Windows 7

S. Smith, Amazon
24 March 2010
  • Summary: I've tried installing and re-installing the software for this maybe a dozen times on a brand new (one month old as of March 2010) HP Pavilion Elite (with Windows 7) and it simply doesn't work. If you trawl around on the web you'll find other people with the same problem - and general amazement that neither Creative nor Microsoft have offered (as of this writing) a patch. The camera worked for about five seconds before crashing Windows 7.

Poor on All counts

Amazon texas shopper "Amazon shopper", Amazon
11 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of these locally at an Electronics Superstore, and returned it for refund 24 hours later. Webcam bad all all counts: 1. Hardware. Not wide angle enough so doesn't even capture whole face at normal 2 to 3 foot distances. Doesn't do a Good job in poor light. 2. Drivers - Color tint was always off, and no adjustment would make it normal 3.
