Summary: I bought this to replace an older cheaper webcam. I like my older one better. This is great for pictures. Great with dim lighting. But I was using it to record videos and sing. And it sounds terrible. Wish I could take it tack. It's muffled and sounds like you are far away and in an empty room.
Summary: I mainly bought this webcam to stream on twitch.tv and to video chat with friends on Skype. I just moved last July and keep in touch with friends through skype for video chatting. I was using my laptop for the most part, but the built in webcam was pretty crappy and there really wasn't a point of using it, so I voice chatted for the most part. Anyways, I decided to buy this to use on my desktop and I couldn't be happier with it.
Great fair cost replacment for my old Logi webcam.

Summary: Not too happy with the stand, but it works great. No problems at all. Used it with Skype and Yahoo chat just fine. My system runs Windows 7 ,and is about three years old now. I had no problems getting it to work once I got online. I still have some upgrades to do to my desktop. I never ran it on my OEM laptop that runs 7 as it has one built in. I do not use a wide range of different products, so running in too conflics remains at minimum.
Excerpt: This cam has a nice clear, sharp image. I also like the auto focus, so you can zoom in, or out and stil have the clear picture. I was impressed with the motion feature that allowed me to move while the camera kept me in the frame.
Summary: You can record videos at 1280x720 resolution. The frame rate for my videos was 15fps. The specs say it can go as high as 30fps but there is no way to manually change it. You can record in lower resolutions for a smaller file size. The files save in .wmv. You can take a photo at a max resolution of 3mp. That is 2048x1536. The quality over skype is great if you have a decent internet connection.
Summary: Easy to install, clear images and great microphone. I haven't done any fancy work with it, but it works great for taking pictures and for chatting with my family on Skype. I'm sure it does lots of other things as well. Compatible with my Windows 8.1 and whatever else it says in the description.
