Summary: When you use this CAM, install the drivers and also change SKYPE to use the HP CAM editor, instead of SKYPE viewer. This will allow the HP to covert the video to MAX quality and not lock up. It also has the privacy lens cover built in to the CAM. A must for any CAM.
Summary: I have the smaller hp webcam for my laptop, it works great so I decided to buy this one for the PC. I am not dissapointed yet. Has a good picture, not awesome but a good picture. My wife installed it with me out of town and didnt call me once! She is not computer literate at all. It is just plug it in, let it find drivers and your ready to go.
Summary: I got this to replace my current Microsoft Lifecam VX-7000. Before recently, I converted my mouse, keyboard, monitor, and now my webcam to HP products. So far, all of them including this one have given me no problems right out of the box. I have those same pixels as the other guy had, but for the most part they aren't even visable, so they don't bother me. I don't know about Mac compatibility, but I don't even have one anyway. Overall, great HP webcam for the price.
Summary: I bought this Used for my wife. It turned out to be a great product that someone had taken good care of. It works well and brings real definition to Skype. Thanks so much for a super product at a price that I could afford. I couldn't and wouldn't have bought this same web cam at their New price. Thanks Again.
