  • Summary: I use this for Skype. It has a decent camera and a good microphone. Quick and easy to set up. Adjustable stand to hang over the top of a monitor or whatever. Price was pretty good too.

Good bargain

Pravin, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this webcam, based on some reviews and also I didn't want to buy a high end one. I found, the installation to be easy and the webcam has a very good clarity even in low light condition. I am very happy about this purchase and plan to buy one more for my parents. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cheap bargain.

A decent camera for the price

Andrew Won, Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera was decent quality - definitely not as good as a High Definition webcam. I had trouble keeping the camera attached to the screen of my laptop, as it fell off whenever I moved my laptop. The image quality was acceptable, but was often grainy and very slow - many of my webchats ended up being choppy. I suppose this low-quality camera would be a great buy if you don't want to feel self-conscious when you are webchatting.

Falling off laptop screen

T. Nguyen "mechguy", Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: The quality is good, but the leg is not so good. It doesn't have a strong grab on my laptop screen. Whenever I move, it falls off. If you're using webcam for your laptop and constantly on the go, try something else, like clip-on type.

  • Summary: This webcam is good, not great... for the price I expected it to stay put on my laptop but it wobbles and falls still. however I did put a piece of tape on the back that solves the problem. The CD i got was also faulty but I just downloaded the drivers from the Microsoft website. Good picture and sound quality. I guess I just expected good webcams to be cheaper...

  • Summary: This is a nice cam with some good features, too bad the Microsoft software does not install on Windows XP... but that is how it goes with Microsoft I think.

Okay

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a decent webcam. It comes with lots of fun features like little cartoons you can add to your video or cool distortions. The problems are that whenever I turn off my lappie or unplug the camera, the camera is no longer recognized on my lappie until I restart it. It also just stops working in the middle of a video call. I'm not sure if it's just getting old, but I really don't use it that much so it's frustrating and disappointing.

Works with Mac OS 10.5.6 out of the box

Mikofox, Amazon
15 February 2009
  • Summary: Pros: Plugged into MacBook Pro and works without any configuration with Skype, iChat, EvoCam, QuickTime Pro and possibly iMovie. Nice compact design. Flexible, rubber-coated base adapts well enough to any situation. Nice long cable allows for pointing it around the office or out of the window. Cons: Too light sensitive in a bright room or if person faces a window. This results in shiny spots on face, purple fringing and washed out areas.
