Summary: took some time to get it working but when I finally did, I was pleased. I only gave it 3 stars cause I had to hunt for the windows 7 drivers that were not available on the disc that came with the item.
Summary: We are having GREAT fun communicating with the grandkids, however the picture is NOT real clear. Set up was extremely easy, it fits most computer screens (as stated)and I am not dissatisfied with the product.
Summary: WebCam would work with other regular computers using Yahoo IM, but I could never get it to workfrom my Dell to an Apple computer that was using Apple Yahoo IM. Webcam works with Skype between both type computers, after I read on the internet to use an older version of Skype. I also had to make some changes on my computer that thier book did not explain, in order to get either IM or Skype to work.
Summary: This is a decent webcam for the price, but it cannot be compared with higher-end cameras. Overall the installation and configuration is quite simple; load in the drivers, plug in the camera and you're all set. The camera comes with a small program that allows you to adjust certain settings on the camera, such as brightness and hue, and the software also allows for still-picture and video capture.
Excerpt: "This camera was bought very cheap thusly I accept it's faults but for 30 or 40 dollars I'd stay away from it. It is easy to use and the software it comes with is ok though for windows xp users it is not needed. The camera is small and has a good range of motion. However, the camera has a tendancy to change colors in the picture as the sensor tries to capture movement, it is also very good at blurring everything in the picture if ANYTHING moves. ...
Pros: small, easy to use, reliable
Cons: Blurs on movement, static in sound, sound and picture do not synch
