Good choice for a windows compatible webcam with current windows drivers

Summary: Very good video quality and good sound. Easy Install. Installed on Windows 7 Pro to replace an older webcam that did not have compatible drivers Win 7. Easy to use with Skype. Does everything I want it to do, and does it well. Flexible base makes it easy to set on any surface and adjust the direction of the webcam.
Summary: This is a great product, and I fully enjoy it and it is used exactly how it said it would be and it works perfectly. Pros: - Good visual - Small - Works with all computers Cons: - The way it hooks on is kind of awkward - The software is slow and buggy Overall great.
Summary: We use it for skyping - works perfectly in this role. This is not a precision German optical instrument. it is a practical small camera that installs in one mintue and does the job. The MS brand ensures easy compatability with the rest of your software and MS operating systems.
Summary: good product for a great price, very easy to use, although i had to porchase anaudio boost to be able toskype and communicate good price dou, very god and easy product. that i had to buy extra accessory to it wasnt fun dou, and costly too.
Summary: This web cam is great, and very user friendly. Its perfect for chatting with friends via skype, but I do not reccomend using this for business purposes. The transmission is great, but if you want to exhibit professionalism in your communication delivery you may want to invest in a better product. Overall, it is a definite must-buy for informal communication with friends and family.
Nice cam at a good price and I got it fast.. I'd do it again .

Summary: I got the cam within a week and was on Skype in no time. I ain't too old yet, I needed a cam so I could see my grand kids in another state. Both daughters in two state made it kind of hard. This cam was the answer. It,s a good camera I just plugged in and went to skype . Hi girls!
Summary: The product arrived in a bulk package and that was not specified on the web page, although the product was not damaged and is working. So, far so good. You defenitelly need to install the drive from the microsoft web site to ensure full functionality for XP at least. It is not the best on the market but worse the money.
