Excerpt: I needed a webcam for my desktop as an alternate for use with Skype on my laptop. My desktop monitor did not have a built-in webcam so I purchase this webcam separately. It works fine and was simply installed as a "plug & play". I only had to plug it into one of my USB slots on my processor.
Excerpt: The picture is nice and clear. He is in a truck, driving and it makes it so we can talk to each other and see each other at the same time. I love it and look forward to many happy uses. It fits easily on the edge of my laptop and is quite secure considering that it is just sitting there without being actually attached to anything. I am very happy with it and excited to be able to use it often.
Summary: Good quality webcam. Even tho' it is supposed to be compatible with Win 7, which I have, be aware that you may have some problems with it. Audio worked at first through Skype. Next time I was on my computer it did not work...no go through google+ hangouts either. I could record a video but had no sound. My speakers played fine when I was on youtube or listening on other programs so that led me to the webcam.
Great price for simple web cam. Works in Windows 8.1!

Summary: I really like this webcam for the price it came in. I only installed the drivers at first, and it was working great. I later installed the software, and that required some tweaking because it messed with some webcam settings that made the image visibility higher but lowered the quality in low-light situations. Works great in Windows 8.1, which is what I was worried about when I first bought it, apart from the quality of it, and it all turned up positive.
