Good hardware, bad software

Pros: The camera is compact and low-key, shoots relatively good video, mic has been good for my purposes (video calls all day long). I like the simple "leg" that lets you prop it up on the desk or hang it from the top of the monitor.
Cons: While the camera is okay, it's been a nightmare to control. Basically it makes up its own mind about when and how to work. For example a moment ago when I using it for a google hangout, the green light was on and the mic was working but no video. There's no way to reset the camera, neither on it or using any of the accompanying software. I even tried disabling and re-enabling the driver via Control Panel to no avail.
Summary: I ordered this on Nov 10, 2010 and now it's dead. Upon first installation with my XP desktop, it had issues. Then it sat for the last 5 months. Yesterday I needed a webcam for a video conf/mtg and this webcam could not be detected by Skpye, the Webcam Sotware that it came with nor Windows Device Manager. I rated this webcam 4 for value only because I got a rebate. This is not an inexpensive webcam by all means. However, the online support via email is very good.
Summary: I ordered this for £13 which is great for the.camera quality but it seems the half price is clearly reflected by the.lack of microphone feature so I've given it half the rating it deserves for that.
Summary: The item is well made and delivery was prompt however the Logitech software provided with it kept crashing my PC. After 3 attempts to load it I gave up and ditched the software. I just use the Windows 7 drivers which gives me limited functionality. Good product spoiled by its software.
Summary: First the good: Flipkart delivered the product within a day and excellent packaging. Nice work. Now the bad: Although the webcam software installs smoothly, I am totally unimpressed by it's quality. I have a reasonably good configuration laptop, and my primary goal to purchase this webcam was to make short ~5 min videos. This webcam does not even record videos for 3 mins.
