Summary: The picture is a bit grainy sometimes, and the LED light gets annoying, especially for someone like me who gets migraines easily. Aside from that I've had no problems with it functioning and being able to angle it is nice.
Summary: I bought this webcam because of the price and the positive reviews. It is so blurry I can't even tell what I am looking at. And trying to find someone to help me is impossible. I can't wait to return it and get one from Target or Best Buy. The ONLY good thing I can say about this webcam is I can take it back to Walmart and get a refund. The sooner, the better.
Summary: The camera aspect of this webcam is great. The quality of the picture is good, and the LED's for night vision is a neat addition, although they are quite bright to look at. Where this webcam fails is the clip that is used to mount to the top of the monitor. It held great for the first month of use, but when I went to adjust it, the plastic had become brittle and the clip snapped completely off. I now have the webcam hot glued and tapped to use.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a cheap version till I could afford a better camera after using it I found it to be much better then I expected and better quality then many of the costlier models..
Summary: This camera is great; it works very well. The lights are a nice feature, since my room is dimly lit. The picture quality is good; you can adjust the color and light settings with the software. You can also make the picture black & white, if you want. I never use the headset that's included. I tried it once, it works fine, kind of uncomfortable, in my opinion. It's just a cheap little thing, nothing special there.
Summary: The camera's software works GREAT on Vista and W7 but would not install completely on XP but I was able to install just the driver so the camera works and has the software for making adjustments but the rest of the software would not install properly. As soon as you take the headset out of the box, use some silicone caulking or other material to beef up where the wire goes into the ear bud section.
