Very easy to use, albeit not the best quality

Tie Dye Bagel, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: This webcam is simply so easy a caveman could use it (wow that sounded corny). Anyway, the sound is a little scratchy. The picture quality is average at best; it's very fuzzy. Plus, there are not many features. By features I mean webcam settings, special effects, etc. It is just okay.

Not too bad

Chacolex "Chacolex", Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: It is hard to give this a great or a bad review, so I am going with neutral, since it appears to work, but with somewhat mediocre internet connectivity it varies, so it is hard to say. However on a normal flat screen it was a little difficult to get to stay attached to the screen, which was sort of an annoyance. Still, easy setup with software and getting in with different types of webcam programs.

Usable in OSX

Harry Tick, Amazon
15 November 2008
  • Summary: This camera works on OSX with a sourceforge driver. The image quality isn't bad, but the refresh rate is very slow and the microphone, from what I'm told, is difficult to hear. I have to use a separate usb mic in conjunction with it. Still, not a bad purchase considering it doesn't claim Mac compatibility and it was less than $35.

Software is Terrible

Craig, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: The camera it self is small and compact and for the price is a good value...but what good is it if the software malfunctions.First of all the software disk is loaded with 3rd party software which means it contains "ADWARE"...the reasoning they tell you this is installed is for automatic updates....now seriously,how many updates do you get for a web cam?.

All right webcam, but

my_view "my_view", Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: Got this webcam today and set it up in office (bright light condition) and I cannot see much differences in video quality vs. QuickCam Pro 4000. But the similarity ends when this webcam gets home, at home's lighting condition, QuickCam Messenger cannot compete with the QuickCam Pro 4000 in video quality, not even close.

Good for beginners

Kyle "Edgewalker", Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: Before purchasing the "QuickCam® Messenger 2-pack" I was using the more expensive "QuickCam® Pro 4000". Until my dog chewed the wire. Alone one of these web cams sells for 50 dollars, while the "QuickCam® Pro 4000" sell for twice that much, 100 dollars. The price reflects the quality. CONS Unlike the "QuickCam® Pro 4000" this is not USB 2.0 compatible. If your computer doesn't support USB 2.0 then this isn't a big deal. It doesn't have a shutter (lens cover) for privacy.

Too much software required for use

Kris, Amazon
30 December 2004
  • Summary: Great camera, but it installs entirely too much software before you can use it. Most of my other PC cameras just plug-and-play, but this thing requires so many extra software packages and wants to install so much more that it can end up over-writing your existing instant messengers and other products. I though the whole point of USB was for plug-and-play. All this device really consists of is a camera with a built-in microphone.
