Decently priced cam --- but there are better ones.

Summary: This web cam doesn't have a built-in mic. You'll need an external microphone in order to transmit sound, so if you already have a mic, this cam will work just fine for you... There are cams with built-in mics now. I just wanted a cheap webcam. A built-in mic would have been nice as it would have reduced the need to plug in another USB cord. The video quality is adequate -- but my mother's $90 "face-tracking" logitech cam is 10Xs better.
Summary: Ok - I'm not too bad at getting these things to work - however this is my third webcam (with a microphone) and nobody can hear me - so I took Creative off my computer and bought a logitech from Walmart which does work and which does give sound.

Excerpt: This is a pretty cheap camera, I'd like to mention firstly. It also comes with a whole load of software from creative that you really do not need. I would recommend binning the CD and just downloading the drivers for the cam from the creative website, that way you avoid having to spend a considerable amount of time getting rid of all the crap. The camera itself does what it says on the tin.
Summary: risoluzione alta ma solo 15 fotogrammi a minuto. non ho grandi esperienze di webcam ma deo dire che si vedono le immagini piuttosto rallentate. non ho capito se la UBS è 1.1 0 una 2. libretto di istruzioni senza dati tecnici. attenzione ai piedini. sembra delicata e se si spezzano non c'è altro modo di piazzarla. sul portatile si monta bene.
Summary: Come la maggior parte di voi saprà, la mia famiglia è divisa in tre per l'Italia, infatti io abito nel Veneto, mio fratello in Puglia ed i miei genitori a Roma.. Fino a qualche giorno fa non ci pensavo neanche ad una web cam, quando mia cugina mi chiedeva di comprarla le rispondevo "e cosa ci devo fare ? Io non devo vedere nessuno..
