Summary: With an abundance of image settings and software, the Creative Live Motion Webcam is aimed at a more sophisticated Webcam user. It features remote monitoring and motion detection for the security-minded and has the impressive ability to take panoramic photos. At $149, however, the Live Motion costs more than a basic Webcam, and it's merely mediocre at its primary task of taking still photos and videos.
Summary: I read the other reviews & I want to know what these people want. For a $30 camera, this thing rocks! I borrowed my brothers camera so my daughter could talk to grandma. I plugged it in, downloaded the driver from the web & was video conferencing on MSN Messenger in about 2 minutes. I'd definitly buy another one!!
Summary: Compatibility: -------------- Read many reviews saying that they had compatibility issues. But mine hooked up fine on XP Home (make sure you dont connect the cam before you install the s/w - this is mentioned in the instructions). Image quality: -------------- Image quality is a little grainy, but for $20 its OK. Does not handle bad light well. With good light its fine. I do not use it for anything other than doing cam-chats with folks faraway.
Summary: I'm not sure if this is in the instructions manual, but for those that have complaints about photo quality, here's one thing you can try- twist the blue lens cover. This changes the focus of the camera which may resolve any image quality issues.
Summary: This is actually NOT a review & rating was given just on average. I'm just wondering if this device is compatible with a high speed USB 2. Because it says it requires USB 1.1. So, can anybody suggest me on this matter? I appreciate any suggestion. Thanks.
Summary: Bought this webcam from Walmart, due to a reasonable price. However, when I got it home and installed it on my computer (Dell Dimension 4550 w/XP Home) it wouldn't let me get out to the internet! I tried uninstalling & reinstalling several times - I could get to the Internet no problems without it on my computer. Checked Creative's Website for a patch or download - of course there was nothing.
