Summary: A USB Web Cam, it is very good. Has built in mic that is also very good. Haws adjustable focus which is good. I use it every day. Have bought additional copies and given them to friends that I think that should be on Skype :-0 Bought from Amazon, delivery was fast.
Summary: It is a reasonably priced web cam. It arrived promptly, installed quickly, and works fine. It comes with good features, but the face tracking doesnt work well when you use many cam (which has its own face tracking). Just turn off this web cams face tracking if you use many cam and it'll be fine. If you don't use many cam, the face tracking on this works great.
Summary: I did buy this as a refurbished unit. It's hard to maintain a real sharp focus, but easy to set up and use. The other problem I have is if I keep the camera plugged into the computer I sometimes get a blue screen that indicates a driver problem. This was the last device I installed so I can only assume that it's the webcam. While unplugged the problem never occurs. I tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. I searched for new drivers and there are none.
Summary: I bought 3 of this for $30 in total, and all work well. What a steal deal! Update 1/29/2011: I don't know why the review for this product here is so low. I have been using this for one year and all there of them work perfectly. The accompany software is also great. We can create animated avatars with our photos. The pictures from webcam is bright and clear and works very well in dark, even without light.
Summary: Super easy to install and use. Got it for my wife so she could Skype and blog - she's not the most excited over new tech or a change in her tech, but loved this product. Has made life easier for her.
Summary: I didn't buy this off Amazon, but bought it second-hand. I found the video quality to be mediocre and the audio to be terrible. I'm also running it on a Mac, which isn't officially supported. I bought it for $10 so I guess I can't complain too much. I did like the fact that you can manually focus the camera and the clamp seems to work quite well. I recommend it if video quality isn't a must have and you're ok with low quality audio.
Summary: In looking for a camera to point out the window, I bought and tried this one. Not the right choice. It does most things well--recognized by XP without drivers (shows up as a video input device under My Computer), very compact, nice picture quality, long cord, and a manual focus ring. It has an unobtrusive blue LED when powered on, and even connected via USB1 produced a high-framerate video stream.
