Cord was short

Jenni Croft, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: The camera was great but the cord to hook it to the computer is short. We had to buy a USB extension cord. I wish the cord were longer but the camera works great.

Poor color

creyente, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: Overall I like this webcam. It does the job--my family can see me and my baby when we video chat. However, the picture might as well be black and white. I searched online for a solution and many other people have the same problem and there is no solution.

Not the best webcam

boilerjad, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: This webcam has slightly above average video with average software. It comes with many mounting options and each of them has challenges and/or drawbacks. Why doesn't the camera and/or the software allow this camera to be rotated in any direction?

almost great but I would get another one...

A. F. Usher, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: Almost great... but you have no control over the white balance and the color, so all my items that are black come out looking a bit purple or grey (depending on the lightning), so if you wanted to show someone how, let's say a shirt looked, they wouldn't be able to see the true color of said item.

Great in low light, otherwise just ok

SZ, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: When I first got this out of the box and plugged it in (without installing the software), I was really disappointed to see colors flickering constantly; it was as if it couldn't decide between magenta/yellow/cyan and the picture quality was horrible.

So-So Cam for So-So Price

J, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought this cam because it was affordably priced, and seemed like it would do good enough. It's okay. But I do have problems with it. I use it for making Skype calls and AIM messaging and have tried some Flash-based chat rooms.

Okay, but didn't work with my Skype

Katrina R., Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: Just bought this to use on a 2 year old laptop running Vista. I wanted to use it with Skype, so I installed the latest version. The camera itself worked okay, but after 15 - 30 sec of a video call on Skype, the image would freeze.

I got a defected camera

TC, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: The reason I say defect is because resolution was great, sound was great, camera quality suck. Grays were black, Reds were light Pink..it was all bad. Lights were coming in and out and I'm black but i had Micheal Jackson's complexion in this camera.

Having some trouble

Nestegger, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: I chose this Webcam because it is the same brand and look as one that I have just recently lost on a trip. I wanted something that would be very easy just to open and plug and play. This one plugs and plays, but the color of the image is all washed out and somewhat reddish in tone.

Nice cam but REALLY bad software

Chris M. Morris, Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: This web cam is nice. No complaints about the product itself. However the software is atrocious. After waiting on the install program for 45 minutes, I cancled and tried using the camera as a plain jane USB camera device. And it worked.
