Summary: I advise you to do as I did after receiving this item: Spend a little bit more and get the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, 1080p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording instead. It is far superior for a minimal cost upgrade.
Summary: I've been using this webcam literally every workday for the past 6 years and it is still working like a champ. I have no complaints with the hardware. The software they want you to install is pointless and annoying, but you can just skip that. Unbeatable value.
Summary: Expensive but a very high quality camera. This camera gives the best images I've experienced with a web cam. Its low light performance is really good. Highly recommended if you want this style camera.
