Summary: Well don't let the HD on the tittle fool you the HD stands for Hercules Dualpix not High Def so if your looking for a Hi-Def cam don't buy this one but on the other hand if your looking for a cheap cam that has a real good picture then this one is top of the line, don't get me wrong I love this cam and will keep it as part of my arsenal because I do a Web-TV show and can use some good cams for fixed positions but I am still going to have to buy an Hi-Def cam.
Summary: After 4 mos of using item, turned it on one day and there are lined areas different shades of me on the screen - so basically it looks like the top is clear and the middle with another shade of color and the bottom with a darker shade. This item was never dropped (I am the only one using it at home) .... it was nice and clear the first time i used it ... I am kinda sad I'm returning it ....
Summary: You get what you pay for. I needed an webcam to do a project on my mac and after doing some research it appears that webcams need to be UVC compatible in order to work with macs. Most webcams do not advertise that they are compatible with macs so finding one is not all that easy. (Check [...] and search on UVC) Anyways, the image quality with this webcam is rather poor and it does not work well in low light conditions.
Summary: I purchased this webcam for my lap top to use with Gmail and Skype. The camera is steady and a breeze to set up and use. It feels adequately secure when attached to my lap top. The picture transmits in real time and is constantly streaming. However the video quality is somewhat grainy, but that is what you get with a camera of this megapixel. I also notice that colors are not as vibrant.. they are a little washed out.
Summary: Works ok on Mac Pro, on which I don't need it because it has a built in webcam, but not on ibook G4 with Mac OS-X for which I bought it, even though it says OS-X compatible. No software for OS-X delivered, and support line suggested Macam, but can't get that to work either. Old Logitech webcam works with this combination though. Now given up trying - too difficult! Would have liked a more accurate compatibility list.
Summary: I have bought two of these, as presents, to use with laptops. One seems to work OK but with the other the mic./sound is OK but there is now no picture and the message "unknown fault" appears: it worked OK initially.
Summary: A simple to set up camera, basically plug and play, and it's nice and cheap. Quality is always pretty poor though (as my relatives at the other end of the line regularly point out). If you want quality video, might be worth spending a but more.
