very annoying high pitched noise when the mic and video were both used
15 February 2015
Summary: The camera itself is pretty good but I encountered a problem when trying to use the mic and video at the same time. I was talking on Skype and people said they could hear a very annoying high pitched noise when the mic and video were both used.
Summary: When I unboxed it I was surprised at how small it is: about 2.5" long. The "foot" part flexes, so you can bend the T part back and it perches very nicely on top of my monitor. The microphone is...
Summary: This camera didnt wow me but it didnt disappoint me either. I would say its very middle of the road. If I were doing video blogging or that type thing I would probably look else where. Not a bad camera for the price
Summary: Gives a lot of headaches, the software it comes with doesn't work on Windows 8, doesn't even use the 720p HD quality, and gave me a load of other problems. I followed tutorials on which program to use it with to get the 720p HD, but they did not work and ran at 15 FPS.
Summary: The webcam itself is nice but installing the software is a pain. I have no time to find the right software on Microsoft. If they want me to use this product they need to make it easier for me. I don't want to download a package which may contain programs I don't want.
Excerpt: I use the web cam on my 52" Samsung Plasma TV through my home theater laptop. The picture quality appears to be on par with other cams I have used and the feedback I recieve from others say the quality is good. Keep in mind this has been used only with SKYPE and has not be tested extensivly by me.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection, Sharp Image
Excerpt: The camera was as expected but it was not in the orginal packaging and the CD with the PC software and owners manual were not included. I borrowed the software from another camera owner to compelte the installation.
Summary: The webcam itself is good. It takes decent quality video and pictures to a certain point, but I've noticed depending on the light situation, the video can get very grainy. The mic on the cam is actually quite good too (obviously not studio quality, but good for a webcam).
Pros: - Looks good
Cons: - Price, - Grainy video, - Mic can't be used for games (seems to lag the whole system when used), - Stand/latch is sub-par, - Software is garbage
