Very easy to use, albeit not the best quality

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.
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.
Summary: I thought that the camera (while working) is really good. I was very impressed with the images and the way that it sat nicely on the top of my laptop. There's no need for a headset when talking to friends and family, as you can play their voice over the computer speakers and the built in microphone...
Summary: Alot of my friends have this webcam and they have reccomended it to me. If your the type of person that isn't tooo picky with image quality, then this is the cam for you.Sometimes the cam tends to act up a little when it comes to lighting but other then that its just fine.
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...
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.
Summary: How is it that reviews done back in November still head the top of the list, and more recent reviews are further back..could it be because of such the favorable rating(5 stars)...I think the average consumer can figure out what is going on here.
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...
