Summary: I was happy with this camera and creative products in general until I tried to install it on a vista machine. That's when I found that creative does not support it's products. I would never buy another creative product again.
Summary: i gave the creative lab webcam instant one star, not based on its performance, but on its compatability with my operating system. i contacted creative lab and there are no current plans on developing any drivers for windows vista. i'm upset, considering that vista is such a widely used operating system. i haven't actually used the product, nonetheless, it shall receive a one-star rating based on the companies insensitivity.
Summary: This is a piece of junk, especially the software. It hung up twice on trying to install the software, and the video portion got hung up so badly I finally had to simply shut down my computer to turn it loose. I sent it back pronto!
Summary: I can't believe how generous other reviewers have been in assessing this cam's awful performance. The images are sooooooooo blurry and dull - maybe it works better in very bright light but for normal lighting conditions forget it. I have a 5 year old Intel web cam that works a milion times better than this piece of junk.
Summary: Ordered the Creative Labs WebCam Instant and paid quickly, but received the wrong item. Shipping was fast, but item was wrong. Girlfriend received the Logitech QuickCam Chat webcam instead and showed poorer quality. Was really unsatisfied, but didn't want to hassle with sending item back. Sorry for responding so late. Will NOT be ordering from again.
Summary: Its not good. It breaks up. Bad transmission. Please dont buy this webcam. Its dissapointing!!! :( Creative rebates are a hoax. They mail me a post card and say the UPC bar code does not match.
Summary: I second the first reviewer's opinion. This is a total piece of sh*t. First I had trouble getting it to work on my WinXP desktop. After a couple reboots it finally worked, and the image quality was a total joke, even in the webcam capacity. The video quality was visibly worse than my 5-year-old Logitech webcam which had cost me about the same amount at CompUSA five years ago. In the end I returned this POS and will keep using my Logitech until it dies.
