Showing 1-10 of 13
PRODUCT IS OUTDATED (NO DRIVERS AVAILABLE) FOR VISTA 7, OR 8.

Summary: Wanted a decent cam for personal security at the nursing home I live at. The Creative web cam is a good choice, BUT ONLY if you are running Windows xp or below. Creative will not come off any drivers that will work with cam for win vista, 7 or 8.
Works great if it stays connected or doens't uninstall

Summary: I have been trying to use this webcam for the past 6 months. I purchased it for work.It worked great the first time i tried it - everything ran smooth - the picture was great and there were no problems. When i tried to use it again, the camera was not recognized.
Summary: Bottom line, if you expect to upgrade your OS forget this cam. It will not run under Linux. It will not run under XP x64 and probably never will. After two years of lead time it still only has beta drivers for Vista x32 (none for 64) which do not work and for which there is no tech support.
Summary: I was surprised when I got this product. It IS for video ONLY. All Logitech webcams I used before come with an integrated microphone. This one does need a separate microphone to talk through the net.
Summary: Never could get this to work with Windows Media Edition. After hours of trying and multiple tech support contacts from Creative I finally got a smart tech person to say "We don't make drivers for Windows Media Edition for your webcam It won't work." Not up to speed. Don't buy from Creative Labs.
If buying for remote monitoring or home security - Buyer Beware!

Summary: First off this review was originally for the Creative WebCam Live! however the software that runs the entire Creative Live! Live! Pro and Live! Ultra is the exactly same, and the cameras are very simular so this review should be relevant to all customers considering buying a creative webcam.
