Summary: Per the other reviews, the software was difficuult to install, but after a restart, it went fine, although verrrry sloooow. Picture quality great.... software worked fine once installed. I am pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Very pleased with the web cam and it's easy to install. Complete instructions come with it and the novice should be able to set it up, no problem! Although I have set up my Skype account, I have yet to make that first call! I'm happy with the camera and you can't beat the price!
Summary: As a mac user I was happy to find a reasonably priced web cam. The picture is not great, but it does the job. Also note, before you attempt to install it, try just plugging it in and turning on SKYPE. Voila! It works.

After a lot of time and confusion, I decided to just buy from Amazon and they made my buying experience far more enjoyable.
Summary: Got this camera for my mom to use with her mac mini. It is recognized for skype and iChat on snow leopard with no drivers or other software. Picture quality is quite good - perhaps better than the internal iSight on my MacBook. Great price on a very decent camera.
