Summary: Us kids purchased this webcam for my mother last Christmas so she could keep in touch with her great gandchildren (ages 15, and 2 1/2 yrs twins)in Al. I would talk to Mom on the webcam when I visited my grandchildren. I live 100 miles away. It worked so well that I decided I needed this to keep up with family too. And I got it for less than the Facevsion home site price. Thank you Amazon.
Summary: I bought this for Skyping on my laptop to my parents. They are using a Skype videophone from Asus - the non-touch screen model. They say that the video looks great and the sound is much better than with my laptop microphone. My laptop microphone from lenovo would have too much background noise and feedback. I took off one star because I think it only works with the Skype software.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews before i buy it. Now i can say that it's an excellent webcam, HD is perfect and the wide angle is perfect when you are with some other person in the same room! Higly recommended!!
Summary: I was very excited about this camera because its ultra-wide lens and because its fame of a very good microphone. What I found out after purchasing it is that the microphone stops working out of the blue in the middle of a conversation or won;t even start working in some calls on skype (last version 5.xxx). What is the point of having a good microphone if it stops working in the middle of a conversation and you have to hang up and call back?
Summary: I am glad I decided to chance a brand I had never gone with before and ended up suprisingly happy. The camera worked right out of the box and was recognised by windows7. The camera itself works as advertised and lives up to all of the advertisements. The quality of the device as a whole is top rate. The stand can be hung from your moniter or laptop and stood up on a desktop. Probably the best feature of the camera is the design of the stand.
Summary: N1 is everything they said was, very easy to hook up and use. Of course Skype makes it easy also. Receiving end tells me, the image is great and sound is fine. But one thing I wish N1 can do, and that is an ability to zoom in or out, even slightly. The built in fixed wide angle is great for group shots, but for a single video calls, which is the majority of times, your image is a little remote, even when the camera is set at the monitor, which is just about 28 to 30...
excellent audio, but video quality depending on processor speed on both ends

Summary: The video performance of FV TouchCam N1 HD VideoCam largely depends on how fast and how powerful the machines running on both ends of a skype video cha are. The machine that I got runs 1.7GHZ on a single AMD processor. The video resolution can only reach as high as 420x420. Then I connected the FV VideoCam to a laptop running 2.6GHZ on core2duo intel processor. Immediately the video resolution can reach close to 720p.
