Creative Webcam with Clip
Kaushik Datta, Amazon
10 August 2009
Summary: The product is of very poor quality.The image hardly refreshes when connected to yahoo and most of all the picture is grainy and color is very dull.The picture will scare you off!!...Please go for other model.This model is not at all upto the expectation.
Summary: 1- I had better picture with my old $10 web-cam. 2- Limited rotation; can only twist up and down not left and right. 3- The software that comes with it interferes with my power saver tool terminates the auto hibernation, stand by feature. I remember having impressing picture quality and transfer with cam called composite cam. Wish they came up with a cam having that kind of technology with that kind of good picture quality again.
Summary: I would not even give it 1 star if I could. I felt sorry looking at the extremely poor quality picture - mannual on camera focusing is useless, white/color balance is way off and not fixable, exposure is terribly slow, resolution claimed (640x480) is meaningless with its low quality lens (seems a piece of plastic from used food wrap). Don't waste money or time on this item unless you are interested in the included carrying bag.
terrible image quality, even in typical lighting conditions

Summary: Just returned this webcam. Has terrible image quality, especially under low light conditions. Well, I would say even in average or typical lighting conditions, the imaging is still quite dark and noisy. Too bad, because I think they got the form factor right on this model.
Summary: Terrible pictures. Don't buy it if you don't want to be like a prisoner. It is not worth a penny!!! You will regret if you buy this product. I like the Live Ultra webcam though. Bought it during Thanksgiving!
Summary: I got one of these since it was mac compatible with 3rd party drivers (check out macam). It worked on the mac, but had horrible picture quality on both mac and PC. It's just a cheap older-generation device with very grainy and washed out low-light performance. I bought an Philips SPC900NC for the mac, much better due to the CCD (instead of the CMOS sensor in the Creative webcam).
Summary: The video is VERY fuzzy. And after rebooting, it no longer transmitted a signal. Have to disconnect and then reconnect it to get it to work each time. Tech support was not able to help during the free-tech support period. I recommend trying a competitor's webcam.
Summary: I'm taking it back. Grainy image in typical lighting, and the software is not intuitive at all. It took me forever to figure out how to configure the settings. Even after I did, the image was crap. Yes, it's small. So what?!!!
