Good Webcam for PC "ONLY", not Mac

Summary: I bought this Webcam for a Mac computer. I was suspecting its compatibility, therefore I looked everywhere in its description, even reviews to find a sign stating if it works on Mac or not, but didn't find any, so I bought it assuming that it'll work.
Summary: I bought this webcam to use with an old IBM Thinkpad R-30 since it is compatible with the old 1 ghz Pentium III processor and Windows XP OS. It is difficult to find cameras that work with the slower processors. The price was good and Amazon.com delivered the product quickly and without problem.
Summary: The picture quality of this camera is quite good. The little fun effects are neat, too. The webcam is easy to setup and install. However, sometimes it asks me to put in the Microsoft webcam CD to use certain features, even though I've already done that, twice.
Summary: This is an ok camera. I havent had a web camera for about 5 years and this camera is only mildly better than that one. Videos are ok, a little choppy so if you plan on moving...beware. the sound is excellent though. The pictures are grainy and dont compare to cameras in laptops like Mac.
Summary: ...but what should one expect from a $16 purchase? It gets the job done, just don't expect incredible quality. Some of my experience may depend on how our computer responds to it as well... because our computer is quite old. All in all, It's a decent camera for the price.

Summary: well this works good but it definetly not hi-def if u have a none hi- def monitor or dont care fore a perfct picture it works good my second one is a logitech hd c310 and it gives a great picture but much more money. If you have a lot to spend this is grat value.
Summary: This webcam does have good video quality, but the clipping mechanism to hook it onto your laptop LCD is about the junkiest I've ever beheld. If your screen bezel is not absolutely flat or squared off (my Thinkpad has a little lip on it) you'll do all sorts of interesting contortions to find a way to...
Summary: I have a Toshiba Sattelite notebook, but when I bought it, I didn't think a webcam was really necessary, but recently I have found that it is something I wanted, so I found a great deal for this little number on ebay. I looked it up and checked some reviews, but I didn't read anything about this.

Summary: Bought this camera to skype with my girlfriend overseas. It works fine, but we hardly ever used it because the quality doesn't stand out when compared to the built in cameras on computers and phones nowadays. In other words, it's a nice camera that sits in a drawer unused.
