"try another one"

dattrieu, CNET

  • Pros: video and mic are good
  • Cons: Annoying MSN messenger button on the top, can't configure it with other applications. Noise build up for no apparent reason while using Skype. Only remedy I found was taking it apart then reassemble it. It was too expensive when I got it.

basically...junk

Overstock

  • Summary: First, Overstock shipped it in a box that was basically a rock tumbler. Everything installed OK, but the microphone had a horrrrrible buzz, making it unusable. Scoured the internet of course to see what I could find. It is a common problem with this webcam. So, following instructions I found, I had to disassemble the unit, remove a ground wire from the mic, and then reassemble. Works perfectly now.So, for the cheap price, it was worth if for me.

Underwhelming

Overstock

  • Summary: The video quality is no better than on a webcam I bought for a girlfriend 8 years ago. The picture is grainy and not much different than the dumpy camera on my cell phone. This is not the webcam you're looking for.

"A bit overpriced..better webcams available for less $$"

  • Pros: The strong point of this webcam is the clear audio recording
  • Cons: Special effects are limited..so far, no new effects available for download. Slow response time for effects and turning the camera on

Eyes Only

Overstock
2 February 2008
  • Summary: The Microsoft webcam works well visually, but the microphone was faulty on both the original and its replacement. Only difference was that sound was intermittent with the first one and totally inoperative with the replacement. Avoid this one.
