Excerpt: I use this camera for Skype and it produces sharp clear pictures. However the microphone leaves a lot to be desired. My Skype partners cannot hear me without shouting and I have the settings turned all the way up. Bottom line is Good Camera, Lousy Microphone.
Summary: Great for everyday use. I noticed some reviews are a little critical of certain specialty aspects, If you need higher quality optics, just move on & buy something with those qualities for a higher price. It works as advertised. 1 negative.

Cons: Driver Is Broken, Not Supported, Poorly Designed
Excerpt: We got this for conference calling with our remote offices. We link it up with Skype accounts and since it has built in microphone, it's a complete solution. What I did not expect is such clear crisp video quality - especially when compared to a smartphone. Great solution for the price.

Excerpt: IT's a Microsoft product, it does what it is suppose to do and functions fine. The source where I bought it on the other hand is awesome. I could get this item anywhere, however, B&H have an easy to naviagte website, easy checkout process, best price and the shipping is fast.
Excerpt: I bought this for skyping with family and it worked great with almost no set-up required. Because it is a Microsoft product, the moment I plugged it, Win 7 recognized and downloaded the latest driver for it. No restart required and I was skyping right away.
