Summary: I purchased this to replace a cam built into a ViewSonic monitor that was also replaced. Not too crazy about the folding leg that attaches the camera to the monitor. It doesn't hold its shape very well and won't stay attached to the top of the new monitor. I was hoping for better video resolution and sound too. I guess the integrated setup in the old monitor did a better job than I gave it credit for. It does a good job but not a great job when using Skype.
Summary: I really like the quality of the image with this camera, but when I took it out of the package, the plastic frame on the front of the camera fell off. I tried snapping it back together, but it won't click in, is still a little loose. Once the webcam was in position on my computer, I wiggled it so the loose frame does not affect the operation of the item, but seems cheaply put together.
Summary: The video quality is good. Audio pick is good. No one on the other end of my calls has complained. Driver install on Windows 7 64-bit was a bit finicky and had to be redone after unplugging and reconnecting to a different USB port which seemed silly. The Mount is rather sad. Simple, yes. It does not rotate side to side so you have to move yourself to the center of frame. It falls off my monitor with even a little bump.
Excerpt: It was a toss up between this and the Belkin version. While they're all pretty even, the reason I went with this one was purely aesthetic. The reason I wish I went with the Belkin is because of Microsoft's stupid integration policies with their other features. I don't use MSN's chat features. I bought this unit solely for Skype and Google+. I had to go in and manually disable an automatic boot-up of Microsoft Instant Messaging.
Pros: Fast Connection, Good In Low Light, Sharp Image
Quality of camera good, but let down with poor software support in Windows 8.1 atm

Summary: While the quality of the hardware and camera picture quality both seem excellent I'm afraid that currently Microsoft supporting software has taken a significant step backwards when it comes to Windows 8.1 support. While the basic camera does auto install drivers and will get you a picture for Skype, etc I found on Windows 8.1 the boasted 'TrueColour' option which enabled by default gave me a garish over saturated look.
