Decent value for occassional calls
3 weeks ago
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.
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 camera is ok in terms of the image and application options, however the design was not right for my laptop as there is no way of firmly securing it and it tends to wobble if the laptop is moved. Also, there are no instructions on how to attach.
