Summary: A great way to get together with all my friends on line. The camera was easy to set up and use, all within 15 min of getting the camera in the door. The picture quallity of the product as well as the video was more than I expected.
Summary: As far as I am concerned the Microsoft web-cam microphone is the best on the market. Great pic and picks up sound any where close to it so if you choose you can talk while continuing work. One great thing it doesn't load a bunch of crap from the company like a couple of other brands I can think of.
Conclusion: I have received the Webcam but have not tried it yet. It will be a Christmas Gift so I can't evaluate the item. I do know that I cannot return it after Christmas even if it doesn't work for us...unless I pay for the S/H plus restocking fee..
Summary: Cannot address the microphone, have not used it, i have a headset. If i were to guess it would probably be bad as other reviews say. If you dont require a mic, this should do ok. not great, but ok. you get what you pay for i guess, went cheap got cheap. but will get the job done.
Pros: -Cheap -Works -Picture is pretty good -decent for skype with the girlfriend, she can see me..
