Summary: I waited for this product as it was on backorder. When I received it, it was a great looking camera...but when we tried to use it the picture stayed mostly on red and then it would start changing colors..the autofocus would not stay focused..
Summary: After trying out 3 of these on different PCs, I can confirm the other negative reports here. The camera itself could be decent, but the software trouble was just as bad as the support, and I had to return them.
Summary: A fine webcam, but after updating my Windows 7 Ultimate machine to Windows 10 (without any problems except this one) I cannot sign out or shut down without having to click OK to close a dialog box that says "AcStBmhE.exe - Application Error.

Summary: I had some issues with lighting with it which was my only problem with the video. I have a lamp on my desk and when it was on my face was completely washed out in a bright alien like haze. Changing settings didn't help so i ended up just using a different light source but it works much better now.
Summary: I'm a geek, loyal HP computers for decades, and did a lot of research and thought this was the best deal, eclipsing the new logitech c910, which I will now buy. This camera, even after firmware upgrade I did from HP support site, did not fix the color problem.
Summary: Bought 2 of these webcams. The one used myself works great, the other used in a different household is always changing colors, sometimes going all red then changing to blue or yellow or some other color.
