Good Webcam for PC "ONLY", not Mac

Omiss "O.K.", Amazon
15 December 2011
  • 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.

Yahoo IM balks at NX 3000

R. Headley, Amazon

  • 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.

Great, until the hinge broke

  • 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.

Doesn't compare to built in cams

Jocelyn A. Thomas, Amazon
24 April 2008
  • 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.

Not the Greatest...

  • 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.

Small Standard Definition Camera

Preston S. Page, Amazon
24 April 2008
  • Summary: The camera meets my needs for an occasional use basic web camera. The design is pretty bad, though. The way it attaches to a laptop lid is not adjustable or secure. There is a swivel mechanism, but it is not anchored to the part with the clamp - makes no sense.

works, if it fits

K Davis, Amazon
24 April 2008
  • 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...

Mounting clip is tiny!!!

Samuel Clemens, Amazon

  • 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.

D. Haynes, Amazon
23 April 2008
  • 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.
