Summary: Absolutely needs adquate lighting. Good as a webcam for video chatting. It's a challenge to use it as a security camera, as software that comes in the package is useless. Must use software such as iSpy to record videos.
Summary: I can't recommend this product because of the difficulty of getting it installed. The total time was slightly over 50 minutes. The box says "Plug & Chat without CD installation" which is only true to the extent that you must download software off the internet and then install it.
Summary: Its good enough for the price but I expected a little more of a high def picture and I was also under the impression that it came with some software other than just the drivers being automatically loaded.
