Summary: Note this WILL NOT WORK WITH A MAC -- but it's a tidy little webcam with its own carrying case and despite Amazon's attempts to get you to buy an additional microphone, it comes with one included. Have communicated with persons using one on their laptops and video is pretty decent.
Summary: I was surprise as to how small the web cam is but I like that because it's easily portable. If you get enough lighting, the image is clear. I just wished the camera rotates left to right instead of just up and down. But I would recommend this product; great for its value.
Decent Camera for the Money. 4 Stars for notebooks

Summary: Got it today and loved the size and the way it is attached to monitors (Dell Latitude). Get one if you need portability, ease of use, and good bundled software. If you need it for more a professional experience, get 70USD up cameras. Video quality is good, but you may need to adjust exposure manualy. Not a serious issue. Focus is nice, as well as depth.
Summary: This cam is decent for the price. It's a notebook cam and therefore very small. The quality of video is grainy and dark. But that's to be expected from a small, cheap webcam. It's still very usable in good lighting for Skype, Stickam, AIM etc. I keep this clipped on my notebook at all times. The cable is not too long and you can use the supplied velcro tie to keep it at your preferred length. It came with a soft case and a wired headset (one earphone and mic).
Summary: I have been using this thing for a couple of months now. It is not professional quality by any stretch of the imagination, but for the price is more than adequate. It clips onto my Vaio laptop very nicely and was pretty easy to install. The usb cable sits nicely behind my screen. Depending on lighting conditions, this cam can go from very grainy (low light) to fairly decent (lots of light).
Summary: I bought this cam about two weeks ago and I have been quite happy with it. I was previously using the Logitech QuickCam Orbit which does indeed have better picture quality and motion possibilities. But that cam was just too clunky for my current purposes (using a laptop with limited table space). I haven't noticed that the picture is dark and grainy as a lot of reviewers have noted.
Summary: I got this webcam for my husband, who travels for business. (Seeing each other's faces on web chats can be very cheering.) The camera is very nice and portable. It comes with a nice travel pouch and a velcro cord wrap. The resolution is crisp and movement is fluid, as webcams go. (It is not the kind of fluidity you get with a video cam, but to get that, you have to spend a lot more money, and it's not that important for my purposes.
