Summary: This does exactly what I need! I might gets something with higher resolution someday but right now this meets all my requirements. It has built in microphones so it allows me to both voice and video chat via Skype.
Summary: This Hercules Dualpix Exchange webcam is not perfect but Ok for the price..the video works quite well but the mic is very weak and sometimes distorts the voice quite a bit...this may be my computer or a slow internet connection, I really don't know how to tell. The only complaint from others on the receiving end are about the sound they hear being distorted.
Summary: Hercules Dualpix Exchange WebcamI bought the used web cam, because my Dell laptop doesn't come with a build-in web cam and also laptop build-in mic does not work on OS X. It is plug and play. I set up to use for skype. both mic and video cam work. It does not even need to install the driver The sound and picture quality are not that great but it is doing the job. I will need to adjust the lenz focus at beginning to get a better picture.
Summary: It took me a whole day to find a good webcam until I found this one. The quality is crystal clear, the sound is amazing and for the price you can't go wrong. My wife and I just love everything about it. I highly recommend it.
Summary: It took me a short while to install the webcam and get it working right. That was my fault and not the cameras. It works great as does the built in mike. I set it up for Skype and have had no problems since then. It has been about a year and still no problems. Great product for the price and I highly recommend it.
Summary: I got 3 day delivery via USPS and was extremely surprised and how easy this webcam was to install on Windows Vista, Mac Leopard and Snow Leopard, and also Linux Mint 8. No software was needed for either OS's since this is driver less UVC. Some reviewers complain that this Hercules webcam does not work with Mac, but it does. It was detected using iChat and Photo Booth. My intention was to use it with Skype on Mac Mini, Vista Desktop, and a camera less Linux laptop.
