excellent audio, but video quality depending on processor speed on both ends
2 February 2011
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.
Summary: i bought this primarily to make skype calls and connected it too my HP Slimline & 42" tv in family room. Couple issues i had installing. One, the USB cord wasn't long enough. The 3' cord was a little short of what i needed. Luckily i had a 5' cord that worked. As i mentioned above, I'm connected to an HP Slimline, which is a verticle computer. I've never had an issue with the verticle DVD/CD drive until today.
