Summary: I don't need the box for $10 which I'll throw out anyways. This camera is plug and play in Windows. Quality is good for the money. Much better than 90% of the integrated webcams on the market. The 720P quality looks reasonable.

Summary: For the price, this is a fantastic webcam. I ordered two and have been using them on my desktop PCs with Skype with no problems whatsoever. Unless you're really looking for a professional image, these 720p cams are the perfect price/performance fit for web conferences and light recording.
Summary: I have been using this camera to communicate with my deaf friends on Skype. It provides a great field of view, keeps up with the motion without freezing the video, and is a great camera for the price. The built-in mic does a very good job at picking up and transmitting sound clearly.
Pros: Plug-and-play with Ubuntu 14.10. Works out of the box with Cheese and Skype. Nice form factor - it sits unobtrusively on top of my monitor. This is really the only place that works for video chat, imo. Good picture and sound quality.
Cons: USB cable was a little short. Unless your computer is on your desktop you'll likely need a short extension.
