Summary: I ordered this webcam and it started having problems after a week. First the picture only came in black and white. After a few more days, the picture kept getting darker until it was no longer visible. Because of the cheap price, it's not worth the shipping cost for a replacement. Since then, I purchased a Logitech webcam.
Summary: Creates only a very dim image; when I put two 250-watt spots on the subject, only then did it make an image worth looking at. The software that came with it disabled all my other cameras, and even though I hadn't turned on Parental Control, demanded a password before turning the camera on. I couldn't guess the password, so uninstalled and reinstalled...no luck. Removed all cameras and all software, reinstalled, and this time it let me see its incredibly dim image.
Summary: I bought this for my oldest son, he has my old PC laptop. It gets the job done and at a price that is unbelievable but true. If anyone wishes to buy a web cam and don't want to spend a lot of money this will work for you.
Summary: I went to Creative's support page to determine if this webcam would work on my 64-bit Windows 7 system, and I was met with this: . . Live! Cam Vista IM (VF0420) Thank you for your interest. End of Service Life The product you have selected has been classified as 'End of Service Life'. . . Fortunately, further down the page there is a driver for Windows 7, both 32- and 64-bit. But, there hasn't been anything updated for this product since Jan 2010. Hmmm.
Summary: Am not sure if it will be working with Windows 7 OS. I have a creative webcam VF-0080 and creative no longer supports it. It doesnt provide the drivers for windows 7. The webcam inspite of being in working condition is unusable because creative is not ready to work on developing the drivers for it. I find it very strange because any upgraded or new version of software should at least have this basic backward compatibility..
Summary: I saw there were a few bad reviews and mostly good reviews so I decided to buy this item. I downloaded it and it froze constantly when I tried to use it with skype. I thought maybe there was a glitch when I downloaded the cd-rom, so I tried downloading it again and it froze up. I can't get this thing to work!!! I will update if I figure it out..
