Short USB cord, software crashes

roberta markevitch, Amazon

  • Summary: The USB cord is closer to about 4' or less, not 6' as the description says. Software bombs out continuously... I'm a systems engineer, know a thing or two about what I'm doing. Just an app crash every time I try and launch. Do a search, there is free web cam software out there that's probably better anyway.

The software driver has good/manual light control.

Bruce R, Amazon

  • Summary: The audio is way out of sync if that matters. I captured a video and that's all I noticed. The motion and frame rate I estimate are 13-15 FPS. What I really liked was the driver, this cam has 4X zoom, effects, and the light can be manually controlled. I have been looking for a cam with manual light control. This cam would work outside or in low light right out of the box. The focus ring is really tight and its a set and forget thing.

  • Summary: I'm pretty tech savvy, but could not get this to work. And good lord, did I try! Seems likely it's just not really compatible with a Mac.

Get what you pay for.. I'm content.

TheLabrat, Amazon

  • Summary: Works for what I need it for.. I broke out the camera board and created an enclosure to give my robot some vision.. I removed the push button and little mic from the board-- as it turns out that requires a 3.5mm input jack.. disappointed by that because my bot required an additional usb sound card in order to get audio recording.. As for quality... Look, it's a 1.3 MP camera..

  • Summary: Spend a couple of dollars more and get something you can use. Mine only worked for a few seconds in the test mode. What do you expect for $10?

  • Summary: Camera worked but microphone would not work. The software that came with the camera would not run with XP OS. Gave up trying after about 2 hours. I ended up using an older webcam I had in a box.
