OK for XP, NOT Vista, Marginal Picture Quality

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.
Costly affair with same features, Face tracking sucks BT

Summary: I have this since August, had to literally switch off the face tracking by reinstalling the camera. Face tracking is of no use while chatting as the image quality decreases with the zoom level. Its like I paid $ 7 for the mic which is handy atleast.
Summary: I had a terrible time installing an entry level web cam from Logitech so I thought I would try Creative's alternative, but this middle level model not the cheapo. Of course its an outstanding improvement over the cheapest ones out there.
Summary: Don't buy this webcam if you ever intend to use with Linux. As of Nov, 2006, it won't work under Ubuntu 6.10. Works OK in Windows but the face tracking software is useless. As usual, don't use Creative's bundled software. It sucks. Installing the driver suffice.
Summary: This camera has great capabilities and great picture quality. It adjusts to all kinds of lighting without any problem. The software has features that you can't find anywhere else. It can watch the babysitter or the house and do all kinds of other good things.
A cheap alternative some may find good use of in the short term.

Excerpt: This colourful little device performs the same interactive operations as many other product alternatives offering a simple, fun way to video chat online. So why did I chose the VF0350 by creative over other products, when many rivals offer the same level of features, and the same connectivity...
Summary: It fitted my price range and I have already a Creative webcam that worked fine. I just bought this as the latest similar product. Haven't actually tried it much yet so can't really comment. Plugged it in and seems to work fine..
Excerpt: I have received this camera from my parents for my birthday year ago. It's my first camera in whole life and have to tell you that I'm not going to change it. Video resolution 800 to 600 pixels is absolutely fine for having a good videoconference. Does quite well when is dark.
