Summary: Creative WebCam is no longer compatible with Windows since XP. Will not work with Vista, Windows 7 etc.Do not buy this product. But anyway you probably know this since external webcams are becoming more and more obsolete and unnecessary.
Summary: this cam does not work with windows 7. I got tired searching and finding the compatible driver of this cam with windows 7 but no luck. the cam is great but Creative's OS support for newer Windows release is very poor. I wouldn't buy any products from Creative anymore.
Summary: There are much better available, avoid this "Creative Webcam" unless you are getting it cheap and are only installing it on an XP PC. It does not work on Vista. It did install fairly quickly on my XP PCs (we have 3 of these webcams) and performs well enough for video chatting.
Summary: The microphone on this gadget has never worked. I've tried help topics, their website, even uninstalling/reinstalling on this and another computer with the same results. What really disgusted me is the amount of spyware and malicious programs embedded in the camera's software.
Summary: I bought a microsoft NT3000 in the beginning, it is really a big disappoint. I bought this one at last, and after $[...] mail-in rebate, it is just [...] dollars. I love this webcame, it has a great value, and the image and sound are both very clear.
Summary: [...] Just a cheap crap. Picture quality is poor, does not work in regular light - needs extra ilumination. And that useless backgrounds are just STUPID. I needed a good quality camera - not a canyon background behind my picture, and neither tiger ears on my head.
Summary: Nothing to write home about... it works, unfortunately not in Linux. I have not tried too hard to get it working in Linux, but it definitely does not work out of the box on Ubuntu, even in Gutsy.
Summary: If you're looking for a cam with all the bells and whistles then this one is not for you. If you're looking for a great cam for video IM's and snapshot captures to immediatly send to friends, then here you go. Yes it has backgrounds, but if you don't like them shut them off.
