Good, but horrible fps
2 May 2014
Summary: This webcam is good. The microphone sounds very clear. The picture quality looks pretty good. However, here is my reason I'm giving this a 3 star review is because the fps on it, its absolutely horrible. Its only like 4fps and that's not good enough for me. But so far, I like it.
Summary: I bought this camera to use as a stand alone webcam, but it is a plug and play only unit. Microsoft has no software to use with the camera, and there is nothing on windows 7. So you have to either download software, or use it with a service like SKYPE. I spent hours on Microsoft's support lines, only to be put on hold, dropped calls or referred back to the place where I started. I gave up and will buy a better camera with software to run it included.
Summary: for my needs. After years with this and no problems, I do need to upgrade to a more expensive one because it just doesn't always deliver the clarity I need talking long distance and I'm talking LONG DITANCE! Good enough to give to grandchildren as first Skype cam. Excellent for the price!
Summary: This camera is perfect for video conferencing and especially for use with Yahoo messenger. With nothing to install, it worked right away and the microphone is excellent. I highly recommend this little camera for those who want something simple and of good quality.
second one i've owned, gave my other one away and regretted it :)
