Summary: this never worked for me, it was broken from the very beginning and I didnt no it, it was to late to send back I had it a while and by the time my son came home and tried to hook it up for me it was no good. what a waste of money this was.
Summary: This is NOT an HD camera even if the specs say so. It tells you its 720p but the picture on highest resolution cant even show a face. Its a VGA cam sold as HD. Very bad glass lens show reflection on picture.
Summary: Camera never worked, (right out of the box), as stated in the ad !! you can use the zoom , ( manually ) , and frankly not worth the trouble, my honest opinion ................ Do Not Waste Your Money !! If you want a good video camera buy a Logitech !!
Summary: This cam is supposed to be HD and too have auto focus well I will tell you that it was somewhat blurry and it does not do well in low light. Also the auto focus function did not work it was fixed focus. I compare this camera to a Logitech C920 and to the integrated camera on my laptop and it was the same awful quality as the one that comes integrated and it didn't come nowhere near close to the awesome quality of my c920 not worth it if you are looking for a HD cam.
Summary: I bought this camera as a bargain deal at my local Fry's for $14.99 and now I know why there were 100 of them piled into the bargain bin. The audio on this thing is wonderful, everything comes through loud and crystal clear, everything else is terrible. The software it comes with is your typical bloated HP software does way more than you would ever want to, takes up a lot of memory, and is more confusing than helpful.
Summary: I bought this garbage webcam right when it came out, I've tried to get it to work on 3 different pc's and other than the 1st time I used it I've never gotten it dom a damn thing! The cam says its on, lights up and projects no image at all! I called hp and told them of the p[roblems I was having and they insisted that I was doing something wrong, so I had a tech specialist out to my place to see what I was doing wrong.
Summary: I have spent a number of hours trying to get this to work. No joy. Video works. Microphone does not work. No useful documentation, either in paper or on HP's website. It crashes my computer, causing a Blue Screen of Death, with error messages: "DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL" OR "BAD_POOL_CALLER". I had to do a System Restore to get my computer working again. I should have quit then. I tried one more time to get the camera working.
Summary: Webcam DOES NOT work with the latest version of Yahoo (10) or the upcoming beta (11) upon initial install despite what the packaging states. Found updated firmware and drivers on HPs site and updated the camera. Still didn't work with Yahoo 10. So I installed the included software supplied with the camera and still doesn't work with Yahoo 10...
