Summary: This affordable Web Camera worked extremely well right out of the box. If you have the Skype software loaded and are a member it is easy to begin communicating right away. The only minor drawback is that if you leave it connected to your computer after shutdown you may have issues when you start up. The easy remedy is to keep it unconnected till you intend to Skype.
Summary: This webcam is great for the price (I paid $12.99 for it). Excellent image quality, audio is pretty good too. The only downside is the mounting bracket, the ball joint the camera sits on moves VERY easily, so you'll probably want to tie the cable down in some way.
