Summary: I'm hopeless when it comes to any form of gadget, so I purchased this based on the reviews. Easy to set up, easy to use and friends have said that the image they can see on Skype is quite clear. It wasn't until the second use that I started to play around with the colours. I think it's essential but it depends on how fussy you are. The colour defaults to a kind of pale green/blue so I change it as I don't want my friends and family thinking i'm not well!
Summary: its all the computer camera and mic you'll ever need, good clear picture and microphone, has a bendable stand to hook over a desktop screen, laptop or just sit on a desk, plug and play through usb port, has a shutter on the front which turns it off completely.
Summary: My gf's sister livs in austrailia ,wel that might aswel be in my front room with this camera ,Superb video + audio easy to set up has tons ov features i.e Face distortion ect wich makes it hilarious when on skype with my gf's sisters boy.
Summary: The S5500 webcam delivered to me was part number 860-000106 which is the version for the AP region. Its VID:PID number is 046d:09a1 It comes with software for windows but no documentation or software for Linux. Luckily, it is UVC compatible and Linux has drivers built into the kernel which will drive this product without any additional software being required.
