Works good, but the mounting is too shaky

  • Summary: I like the cam, but the mount doesn't work well. Even a light tap on my laptop causes the cam to shake. It is very difficult to get it pointed in the right direction.

  • Summary: Works really well. I stuck it on my Win 8.1 boxes and it fired right up. As usual, the drivers were built into the OS. Very high resolution.

"I LOVE it!"

  • Pros: The quality, the auto focus, the size, how well it stays on my monitor...just EVERYTHING!
  • Cons: DO NOT HAVE BACKLIGHT! The webcam doesn't work at all if you have any lights behind you. Just keep it away from direct light. Indirect is obviously fine.

  • Summary: Best price anywhere. Not sure why it says military use only, unless it was bought at a base exchange and resold on here? Same HD 5000 as any other, just had a sticker on the box saying for mliitary members.
