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. I like the cam, it works fine with my Windows XP but when I upgraded my system to Windows 7, the cam's life ended unexpectedly because Creative did not release compatible driver for windows 7.
If you get what you pay for, this should have been free!

Summary: This is a very disappointing webcam, even at a low price, for the following reasons: - VERY POOR LIGHT SENSITIVITY. The camera is pretty much useless in ambient room lighting. If you plan to use the camera by anything other than sunlight or bright office lighting, your frame rate will drop to the 5-10 frames per second range and the image will be very red and blurry.
Great for daytime usage, horrible for nighttime usage

Summary: I purchased this webcam to chat with my family, so the only requirements I had were that it give consistent good quality in bright light or low light. I use the webcam at night mostly, and this webcam doesn't work very well in nighttime lighting. When exposed to artificial light, it doesn't know how to handle the brightness well automatically, and you have to change some of the configurations, specifically in the brightness, to adjust to your indoor lighting.
Summary: I think this is an excellent webcam. I can get it to work with Yahoo! Messenger in its super-webcam mode. My folks have also said that the images are great in MSN Messenger and even better in Skype Video.. Maybe it matters very little what software you use, its got to do a great deal with the webcam itself. So, I am very happy with my purchase of Creative Live! Pro webcam. I was apprehensive of some of the mixed reviews out here.
Summary: Ok first off this is the pro and not the basic model or the ultra some reviews have been for the basic models.Another thing is that this cam and many others do not work with all systems so do a google search before you buy...I rate this a 5 start because its wonderful I had a labtec and well it sucked.
Worth the price,Good Face Tracking and motion sensor feature

Summary: Well i am pretty statisfied with the webcam, althought the performance is not the best in low light but i think its the same case with all webcams in this price range. the Face Tracking and Motion Detection feature is real nice and works pretty good. The webcam clips nicely to any laptop or desktop screen.
Summary: I was looking for a good webcam and settled on this. If there is any con, it is only that it cant be used on a mac. Other than that, the install is very easy. Just plug it onto ur notebook screen, push in the USB connector, and install the drivers when XP asks for it. The quality of the image even in the fastest speed mode is photoquality when made large size. No dots or noise visible. At night, quality does go down, however only if there is not enough light.
