Good, but not in Linux

Paul F., Newegg
27 June 2009
  • 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...

My first webcam

JENNIFER W., Newegg
25 April 2009
  • 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).

It's Okay

Baby Tiger, Amazon
11 March 2008
  • Summary: The Creative Live! Video IM is a great buy. But, you don't really need to install the CD to use it with MSN or Yahoo messenger. The setup was not good for me. One of the drivers that i needed was not installed on my computer and it wasnt on the CD either. But, other than that i love this product.

Good product

A. Kashyap, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • 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.

Great Deal for the money

Sujit Thomas, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • Summary: This webcam has very good pic quality as well as excellent sound quality. The only drawback is with Yahoo or MSN messengers which seems to slow it down to only 320X240 resolution. If you use Skype messenger, the webcam works really fine.

Pretty decent web cam for the price.

rab, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this web cam in March in CC for $20 after rebates (rebates came through without issues). I am very happy with this web cam. Quality of pics is pretty good. I would like to give it around 4.5 stars for this one.
