Excellent!

Joe A., Newegg
7 July 2010
  • Pros: Extremely happy with this cam. The mic on this unit is incredible and I have had ZERO problems working under XP Pro and Windows 7. Highly recommend.
  • Cons: Will not function under Linux (Ubuntu 10.04) which makes me sad! Stand is not the best on a monitor but velco is a wondering fix.

Almost False Advertising

Alexandr B., Newegg

  • Pros: It works. Plug-and-play. Decent picture. Focus easily adjusted by rotating front black cylindrical thing. Includes software for video filtering and (just barely functional) face tracking. Clip is useful for attaching to monitor.
  • Cons: One and only big problem. Image resolution is advertised "Up to 1280 x 1024" but even if the software is installed, RGB resolution is only 640 x 480. Here's how the manufacturer justifies it: after you install the software, it is possible to sacrifice color quality and frame rate for increasing g...

jWin says it works with Win2000 - It doesn't

Victor V., Newegg
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I know, I know, Windows 2000 is a thing of the past - but I am trying to work with someone who can't afford to upgrade AND jWin said it would work - ugh! Glad it didn't cost too much
  • Pros: None yet
  • Cons: Called jwin to confirm this camera will work with Win 2000 - The pdf manual says it does - at the end of the manual. No Win 2000 drivers AND none on their website to download.

does not work with Mac OS

Reader12 "Reader12", Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: The box lists a minimum requirement of Mac OS 10.4 or higher, but this product does not work on a Mac. The Specs state this is for a PC or a laptop- What does compatibility with a laptop mean? Apparently this means this product does not work on a Mac. I'm disappointed.

what can i say its a webcam

Elizabeth G., Newegg
4 January 2010
  • Summary: um .... its 20$ come on buy it its worth it lol
  • Pros: well its price is nice and its not bad at all the picture is decent no better than decent for webcams. the microphone is really powerful i walked maybe 5feet away and my friend said she heard me just fine. not a lot of lagg on it has the ability to capture pictures.
  • Cons: not really good for supporting itself if you use it for a desktop you kinda have to balance it and not hit the table but its not that bad as i make it sound if you have a thin monitor thinner than a flat screen (idk what thinner than a standerd flatscrn tho lol) then it will hold just fine
