Summary: A chip in the camera sounded like a good idea, but the picture quality is just not there. I don't like the fact that I can't turn off auto exposure. Picture is grainy, and definitley not true hd. I'm also disappointed with the software. The hardware saves on resources, but the software eats them up. And does not play well with Logitech cameras. All in all, I'm considering it a waste of my money.
Summary: Disappointed so far. Image quality is not at all impressive compared to other webcams at same price point. But the worst part is there was no H.264 output from the camera on Windows 7 or 8, despite the claim.s on the box and website. Also the clip/hinge is very flimsy making it a challenge to attach this camera to anything but a large flat surface. Save yourself some time and money and buy something else.
Summary: After much struggle with my friend who would always buy bad quality webcams, I have let him see the light by buying him this webcam. Now I can see his face, and the surroundings clearly enough that he can teach me guitar over webcam! Sweet deal man.
Summary: We have two of these in our house, one for myself and one for my father, it captures light well and works perfectly, for the price it's a very respectable webcam, even at 720p. I plugged it into my Mac and it worked instantly, all I had to to was tell the program where to get the video and audio from, and it picked up everything from there with no problems since.
Summary: Plug and play but auto-focus and auto brightness control fail at a high rate in my experience using the drivers included in MacOS. Not moved them to Windows to see if it's hardware or software but --- time is expensive and the slightly more expensive Logtecs have been great for me, saving significant tech support time.
Summary: It arrived very fast and was well packaged. Was easy to install. Run the included CD to configure, plug into a usb port, sit it on your monitor and your ready for action. It has auto focus which is a big plus for those of us that are focus challenged. It works great. It is a lot smaller than it looks on the amazon site, but to me that's also a plus. It's not as obvious. Would recommend to anyone in need of a good cam.
