Summary: Too cheap to return and go through the process for what? Another one? No thanks. I'll find something to tie together with this cam wire. Ponnied up the $80 for a good quality one, something I should have done to begin with.
Pros: Easy to order, quick shipping
Cons: Terrible video and mic/sound problems. Tried it on two different well performing PC's with and without provided drivers, still had mic problems.
Summary: Do not get this if you plan on doing any development under Linux or if you want to use it for Youtube (or similar) videos.
Pros: Very cheap, small form factor and good build quality.
Cons: Very poor compatibility under Linux (you might be able to get it to work, but it's not plug and play like many Logitech webcams). Otherwise works fine under Windows XP. Video is not that great either...
Summary: I don't use a lot of the extras that are included - the picture effects and stuff, but they seem fairly decent.
Pros: I'm impressed with this webcam that I received as a gift. I have moved several time since receiving it, and it has held up to the beatings it takes in the tear-down and set-up process.
Cons: I'm now using my TV as my monitor and set the camera on top of it. This results in a pretty grainy picture due to the distance from the couch to the TV. If it's really important, though, I perch it on a jar candle closer (unlit, of course).
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.
