Summary: Setting up was as easy as plugging it in to a USB 2.0 port and sitting it on top of a monitor. The rubber coated stand is extremely flexible but strong enough to stay in position when set. Mine sits on top of a DELL flat screen monitor but can just as easily stand on a desk or CRT monitor without any problems.
Summary: So far so good. Have had this webcam for about 2 months now. No issues what so ever, and was "self installed" by Windows. So much easier than my Logitech webcam that would never recognize. Fast and easy install, with great picture.
Summary: I've bought this one to use it with android tv-box UG008 for skyping and such. Works well out of the box with stock firmware. Wide angle, nice clear picture with good colors. I kind of wish there was no autofocus, since the camera tries to refocus way too often and is not too quick in doing that, but other than that I'm quite happy with the purchase.
Summary: This camera is very easy to install; just plug it in your computer and it does the rest. It even installs its own software for you, and updates it. When you use it with Skype you MAY have to tell Skype to switch from your computer's onboard microphone to the LifeCam microphone, but that's as hard as it gets. Very good camera.
