Microsoft cheapo cam not worth the money.

John Grui, Amazon

  • Summary: Terrible product, Worst resolution ever... Only works decent while in low light settings on lowest resolution. Terrible software support only supports up to windows 7 however will work on windows 8 but suffers. Only pros are the actual cam software which has cool effects. The design is right on the post and case are nice but seems like they dumped money into extras and let the actual camera suffer. If you NEED a cheap cam that won't fail..

low framerate, obnoxious installer and applications

MaxVideo "maxvideo", Amazon

  • Summary: Background: I installed this on two Windows XP Professional SP2 systems. I followed the instructions to the letter, installing the CD FIRST, before plugging in the camera. I am a 30 year software developer who has tested dozens of webcams over the past 5 years and writes videoconferencing software for Windows using DirectX. 1. The installer is obnoxious.

A good product spoiled by the bean-counters?

  • Summary: I bought this webcam for a Desktop (see below) - it may be better suited for a laptop. The webcam provides excellent quality video (for a webcam) in a range of resolutions & excellent quality sound from the in-built microphone. However, the slim webcam unit comes attached to the shortest USB lead you've ever seen.

Schön klein aber ein Taugenichts.

Andreas Grüner "WEB2.0 goes >NIL:", Amazon

  • Summary: ich habe diese Cam bei einem bekannten Elektronikhändler zum drastisch reduzierten Preis erworben (gleich 5 Stück) Die Cam ist schön klein und handlich, der Magnethalter ist eine gute Idee, könnte jedoch etwas stärker sein. Der Standfuß sollte für einen stabilen Stand sorgen. ABER M$ weist darauf hin, dass man zu erst deren Software installieren soll. Gut, gelesen und getan. Deren Software ist recht resourcenhungrig bzw suboptimal geschrieben.

  • Excerpt: Никому не советую.
  • Pros: набор разных креплений и подставка
  • Cons: - отвратительное качество видео - ужасное качество фото - разрешение виде максимум 800x600. а зачем там режим 8М для фото вообще непонятно
