Compact and well thought out.

Summary: Bought this cam for Skyping. If you're using Windows 7 do not use the install CD. Just plug it in and the video and microphone driver will be installed. LifeCam 3.6 software will also be automatically downloaded and installed. Good picture and sound, no major faults, clamps onto Thinkpad screen edges with ease. An overall very good design for laptop use.
Summary: This is a good camera. It was recognized in Windows 7 and Windows Vista without any problems. The quality image is acceptable. This is beatiful and small. Good for Microsoft with this device. Please, be aware. This camera is recommende to have excellent images for objects located a little bit distant from the camera. For objects very near is not a good option.
Summary: Good price and postage cost . Return offer if not working. Bought it to replace the photo detector in a spectrophotometer so that the diffraction grating could stay stationary once aligned . this allows the whole spectrum to be captured in one go Software needed an up data , but with microsoft this is not a problem .The genuine high resolution and brand name played a large part in my decision to buy one Would place this web cam a high end of the market not to be confused...
Summary: I had to buy a webcam because the built in one in my laptop quit working. I ordered this because it was a familiar brand and cheap. I found this unit clips easily to the lid of my laptop and the picture & sound are excellent. The CD that comes with it though certified for Vista, will not work on Windows 7 though technically it should. However, a screen appears that re-directs you to the Microsoft and it downloads and installs updated software in minutes.
Summary: This webacam is just what I needed. It's compact enough to carry around while traveling, discreet, and has a retractable lens for protection. It also includes a carrying case. The specifications are very nice, software is upgradeable and Microsoft's hardware tech support is so great! I guess the only bad thing for this camera is Microsoft's effort to push you to use it's instant messaging software as evidenced by the web call button on top.
