Summary: i have a few of these for vid chat they operate great . the built in mic really works. the manual focus is a plus - the video is clear. with win 7 you dont "need" a driver, but the software from creative is well worth getting
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 bought this camera knowing that is not a high end product, without the features or gadgets that high end cameras provide. I only wanted something that could provide a decent picture for my international calls through Skype to family and friends, and eventually, for some educational applications since the technology to comunicate with students through the web has become available.
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.
