Best One I've Ever Owned

Summary: Best webcam I've ever had. Awesome bright HD video. Good mic quality (although I don't use the mic on it.). And autofocus; I love this feature. I love being able to hold something up to the cam to show to someone and the cam auto focuses in on it. If you can only find it for 99 dollars you should buy it somewhere else though, I only paid 40 for mine. Buy one and enjoy.
The image quality is very good, and my skype callers always compliment the camera ...

Summary: I got this to replace my Lifecam VX-5000. This camera is in HD and it works perfectly. The microphone is clear, although with a tiny feedback (not a problem). The image quality is very good, and my skype callers always compliment the camera quality.
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.
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.
