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.
Summary: I 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.
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.
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.
Summary: found a site which rated web cams for apple and ranked them by price , quality and ease of just plug and play w/apple-mac. choose the relative cheaper model as I wasn't going to use it much. overall I was very surprised at how good it was!
