Summary: What you are buying is a Vimicro USB Camera (Altair), according to Fedora 20. The cam works with Linux and Windows. Weird mount, decent picture - quite decent. Even excellent considering the low price.
Summary: The webcam works fine. The image quality is what you pay for, which is fine with me. My friends can see me over Gmail and Skype. However, the microphone hardly picks up any sound. I practically have to yell for my friends to hear me. Even then, they say I sound muffled.
Summary: I got it on a sale so it was $5 instead of 17. Oh and it shipped about a day faster than I thought it would.
Pros: It's a pretty cute. It's relatively small and portable. It has good video quality. Easy to set up.
Cons: According to my friends on Skype the microphone quality is bad; it sounds like I'm holding a hand over the microphone. However, I have a headset with a microphone that I just use for the audio so it's all K.
Summary: You get what you pay,really nothing much to say. The image is what you expect from such a cam. The wire is of a good length. Forget about hanging it from on a laptop using it's functionality, But I can see it can fit a regular desktop screen.
