Summary: What can I say...This product is HOT!!! ( It generates a great deal of heat while in use.) Manufacture quality is high, great looks , easy to use ( hardware wise )...Now to the software : not so great , as with a good deal of Microsoft software written for the engineer and not the ease of the end user...but it gets the job done. Good sound performance and good picture quality ( inclusive of low light operations and true picture color ).
Summary: I have use it with a desktop computer, Windows 7 x64 Pros: - Good in low light - Easy to configure - Nice camera effect for chat - You can turn up and down the camera len, so easy to mount to laptop. I was have some fix to mount it to my desktop LCD. Cons: - You must install software first, installation requires internet connection and you must set default browser is Internet Explorer to continue the setup.
Summary: I only bought it because it was on sale. If it was full price, no way is it worth it. The quality was decent, but no more than $30 decent. Now we have a smart phone and never use webcams anymore, but it was a good 6 months of decent webcam chatting.

Summary: Microsoft product made for microsoft applications. I couldn't get the zoom to work at all and couldn't get it to work with Skype after installing microsoft drivers with microsoft app. Only easy was uninstall. I went back, reinstalled and updated drivers, and it works great now and still. I really love that the lens manually pushes inside the camera to shut it off. Easy controls for the best quality image.
Summary: It is an OK webcam. It provides decent quality and such, but the mic is not so great. The mic made me sound super low-pitched, which I am not. It took a bit of tweaking but once I was done, it was almost as clear as my logitech mic (which has almost unbeatable quality). It has a bit of background noise too, but it's nothing major. The video quality is really good. If you set the res. to 800x600 and then set it to zoom in 2x, it will look very nice.
Summary: It's pretty much as it describes. As far as compatibility problems go. I have Windows 7 and it just told me to go online and then started to download the update it needed to do the installation so no real problems there. Granted I've only used it for about a day but the video quality of it seems fine about what I had expected. The only thing about it is with the sound it has some weird humming or pulse kinda sound.
Summary: I feel this product is definitely worth it for the price. Only good for laptops though. Picture quality is alright, definitely not as good as they advertise. I found some of the software to not function completely but the camera itself serves its purpose. If you want something for the long term and will use this often, go buy a more expensive camera.
Summary: This is a great little camera. The picture is incredibly sharp. I was able to see my bird walking around on the floor of the living room in detail. Installation was easy and my computer didn't choke on it once! It installs Windows Live which you don't really need to make it work, so unless you like this overinflated software for messaging, I wouldn't chose the option to install it with the camera driver.
