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.
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. This "creative" thing is so useless and pathetic. Don't waste your money.
Summary: The quality of this camera is so outdated. The pixels did not fully show and you'll see a picture of some hill. really weird stuff... Really bad in low lighting. Spend a little more on a better cam. I recommend Microsoft Vx-3000.
Summary: I do video chats often, so I like to update and buy new webcams every two or three years. Even though according to the specifications this webcam is superior, its quality doesn't come close to my old Logitech QuickCam Zoom. I've played with its configurations but it made little difference.
Summary: I bought this camera recently and found the picture to be really grainy and out of focus.I would never suggest this camera to anyone.I would recommend the Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX.I've used this webcam before and it has excellent picture quality.
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.
Summary: I just purchased this Webcam Live Pro and I am very unsatisfied with it. It is very slow and choppy where my 5 year old Intel webcam is not on the same computer. I tried this on two different computers and it is very slow and choppy on each. The quality of the picture is not very good. The microphone is decent but is not a part of the webcam. The way it snaps on to the monitor is not what I expected. There is nothing holding it to the monitor but gravity.
