Excerpt: We use this camera on our TV to Skype with our children and Grandchildren. We recently moved to Arizona from Wisconsin. We were use to seeing the grandchildren frequently, now it will only be when we get to go back for a few months in the summer. So it is great to be able to see and talk with them in this manner. Nothing compares to be together in person, but this is certainly the closest thing to it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Energy Efficient, Great Picture
Cons: Difficult For Us Anyway, Difficult To Set Up
Summary: Would not recommend buying this... Its sold as an add on for your TV to enable Skype functionality, however it does not have zoom capability- therefor when you sitting on the couch, you show up as about 1/10 the size of the screen...
Summary: After using this camera for 1 month, I am not totally satisfied with it. The camera view is narrow with no option for a wide angle view. Unless you are directly in front of the camera you will not be in view. Too much money for such a poorly designed camera.
Summary: Being able to see the people you are talking to on a 55" screen is a daunting thought and this model did exactly as it said it would, Dead easy to put in place, great to use - but let down by the technology of superslow narrowband communications (although I hope that this will be fixed in the next couple of months. Would recommend this camera to anyone with a Sony TV (but check its compatibility first).
Summary: Got this for my wife to use to Skype family abroad and she absolutely loves it!! Only prob is can't get her away from the telly now!!missing all my football!!!!amd house is a tip!!!Works great,and easy to set up!!
