Great picture, crappy mounting

  • Summary: This webcam works very well in low light or bright light. Works so well in low light I never need the LEDs that came with it. Software included makes it easy to turn lights off or on again. My only problem with this thing is the mounting. The clip is sturdy enough but only opens to about 3/4" wide which will not clamp onto my "thin" monitor. Might work well for a laptop though. Then I tried using the double-stick foam tape included but it doesn't stick very well at all.

Decent for the price.

  • Summary: This webcam works perfectly as soon as I plug it into my computer. The picture quality is decent, i've seen better and i've definitely seen worse. The software though is a little confusing and didn't install on my laptop. The software isn't necessary to run the cam. The lights on the cam are love/hate, they do a good job of detecting the lighting in the room but I would like a button on the cam itself to turn it on or off, the only way to turn them on or off is through...

Web cam

Don C Gottschalk, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for Linda's computer. When I set it up it would not work right. It was kicking my butt. I called the manufacture and they tried to help. I was just about to send it back when I remembered that it was plugged into a powered USB hub, Not the computer. I unpacked the web cam and plugged it into the computer and it worked GREAT. In my opinion, the selectable LEDs are a waist of time. They cause a glare, they are too bright. With the LEDs off the image is great.

Great starter webcam

  • Summary: For the price, this is a good basic webcam. I am currently using it to Skype with a Dell laptop with Windows Vista. Was relatively easy to install for a person with average computer skills. The video quality is very good, and the nice part is you can clip the camera anywhere the cord will reach. The microphone which is included goes over the ear, and is pretty basic and a sometimes the sound is a little shaky. But it's a great way to start out on video calls.

Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass Webcam with headset

S. McKay, Amazon
25 October 2010
  • Summary: For a relatively cheap webcam, this one gets the job done. I do not expect a good-quality image, so I was pleasantly surprised when I first turned it on. The auto lights are nice for when I'm in a dimly lit room, though they did get annoying when the lighting in the room was neither dark or well-lit; the lights would turn off and on over and over again. This was easily fixed by turning on an extra lamp. I had some trouble with the sound from my end going in and out.

Good webcam for the price

J. Appleby, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for use with Skype. I did not have to do anything more than plug it in to begin with, as windows took care of the install process. Easy as pie. Since there was no instructions in the package, it took me a couple minutes to figure out that turning the lense adjusted the focus. Until then, I was seeing a blurry image. The only drawback I can see is the aux led mode setting. In low light, this cam shines 4 bright led's in your face.

Going to buy a second one

  • Summary: I bought this web cam for my friend for Christmas. I enjoyed using it on her laptop so much that I'm going to buy one for myself. I like the led lights that come on if it is too dark and the clip is the best part! For laptops, or in my case a tablet, this is perfect!!
