Summary: I waited three months to buy a gaming headset w/mic. I wish I had bought it sooner. My friends immediately noticed when I began using a headset. For sub-par audio quality at a $99.99 price point, I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
Pros: Shoots smooth 1080p HD video, Nice compact profile, Great mounting clip
Cons: Poor audio quality. This camera boasts stereo microphones, but they sound terrible. In my streaming I sound like I'm underwater, inside of a tin can, and distorted.
Summary: I love the quality of this camera and the fact that it can sit on a tripod unlike the 9000. However, the biggest drawback for my particular use is the lack of a mic mute button on the camera controller.
Summary: The clarity is good but I am very disappointed with the controls for zooming/adjusting and color adjustment. You cant zoom or adjust the picture at all in photo mode you have to click over to video to make adjustments then click back to photo to take your picture.
Summary: The camera has great picture/video quality, it's size is compact, it manages light levels very effectively. The Auto Focus feature is one of the best I have ever seen; quickly adjusts to movement toward and away from the lens. It was also easy to set up and install.
Pros: Great picture quality and video quality.
Cons: Stereo microphone is not great quality, limited software.
Excerpt: Except the expansive price, this is a good buy. It has high quality video.However, this webcam does not co-exist with my TV tuner, PCTV801e SE, made by Pinnacle sys.More than 50% of the time, if they two were both plugged in, my windows will go blue screen when someone called my in live messenger.
Pros: Easy To Sit On Monitor, High Quality Av, High Quality Video
