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. It might be handy for videoconferencing on a large TV, but we haven't ever needed to do that.
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: worked really really well for some time, i've had it for about 6 months. buuut here's what got it only 3 stars, its not durable at all. after only 5 months or so its gotten touchy, laggy, and worst of all randomly shuts off the camera. i was disappointed but you get what you pay for.
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. It didn't work on Mac, and its software/driver is for different Windows editions. That wasn't shocking since it's branded "Microsoft"!
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. I don't like the mechanism that it uses to "clip" onto notebooks though - it's not sturdy and after a few months use, the clip has broken.
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. You pretty much have to be right next to a window mid day to get a good picture without it looking cheap.
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 hold it where it's usable. If you're not sure this will clip on to your laptop screen based on that description, then I'd suggest you pass on this one.
