Absolutely Useless with Windows 8.1

Swanzola, B&H Photo
11 July 2015
  • Excerpt: This webcam does not work. It is apparently not supported, nor is the current version of the driver. It WILL work with a much older Windows 7 driver, but until Microsoft cleans up their software DO NOT BUY. Also it is tiny and has poor resolution. Even for the price, it's a huge gamble.
  • Cons: Driver Is Broken, Not Supported, Poorly Designed

Don't know about this cam

TonyB "TonyB", Amazon

  • Summary: I don't know about this cam because I was having Windows 8.1 problems (the download turned out to be corrupted) and so never really got to use it. You'll have to ask someone else about it. TonyB

Great cameras but not with Windows 8.1 - problem solved below

Calynette Design, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased four of these cameras from Amazon to use for my business opening for security and promotional purposes. These were to be used on three computers throughout the property and based upon on the feedback and reviews that I studied, all compatibility issues seemed a go.

Don't like / trouble working with Skype

Micheal Smith, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this item because the purveyor assured me this would work with Skype as well as Windows programs, and it does not. Very very, very HORRIBLE items; would not buy again.

NOT Compatible with Windows 8.1 even though Microsoft claims it is.

D. Hines, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Microsoft should stick with making keyboards and mice, because the rest of their hardware is nothing to write home about. Case in point: this item. There's a page on Microsoft's site claiming this camera will work with the new Windows 8.1 - even has a link to a "software update" to make that happen.

Does not work with Win8

Agent60, Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: After spending hours trying to get this cam to work on my new Win 8 computer, no luck. MS provides a download driver for the cam that is suppose to work on Win 8, however it does not work. The product was also received without the typical store packaging.

I really hate this webcam

Tyler PC Guru, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: I have a 24" monitor that makes my face light up and the webcam doesn't really adjust the lighting correctly. With other webcameras I look fine but on this one my face looks washed out. With natural sunlight this camera does great.
