Summary: Both the camera and the mic work pretty good. One thing I don't like is the clip on the bottom totally doesn't work on my flat screen computer. But, I just leave it on the desk, and that works fine. Love how easy it is to rotate the viewfinder up/down and across.
Summary: Could not have been easier to start a conversation on line over the miles. It was simple to install -- just plugged it in; it did the rest (I did not need the CD that came with it). It even worked with my Windows Vista!
