Summary: I needed a webcam for work and did not want to pay a lot of money for it. For what I paid for this, I think I got my money's worth. It's not fancy and the picture quality is not great, but it is functional. The included software has a few extra settings that allow you to adjust the picture quality. You can also add filters, frames and effects if you so desire. Most of that stuff is useless for me, but it was still fun to play with it for a few minutes.
Summary: Thing is broken right out of the package. And newegg wants me to pay $11 to ship it back to them? I don't think so. This product is a total waste of money and it's a disgrace that newegg sells these things. Don't be fooled by the occasional high reviews: this product manufacturer makes duds and you'll get landed with one.
Pros: This product has no positive features.
Cons: It won't work. Plug it in, windows can't detect. Put in the driver disc, can't run because windows can't detect. Waste of time and money.
Worked great out of the box on my Windows 7 machine

Summary: Worked great out of the box on my Windows 7 machine. I have tried several webcams in this price range, and this one has by far the poorest image quality, but is also the most reliable. I'm not really expecting great image quality at this price, anyway. Most webcams I have used are unreliable - video or audio will cut out randomly during skype calls, etc. I've had no problems at all with this one. It works every time.
It works great. I see no difference between this and much ...

Summary: I paid $5.00 for this cam. It cost that much to ship it. It works great. I see no difference between this and much higher priced units. The bottom line is that many off brands have excellent stuff, and the inner workings are undistinguishable from the name brands. And for $5.00, I could buy a lot of these before paying for one of the others. It's not a film ready cam. It's just regular internet cam. It works. It's cheap. get one.
Summary: This USB camera works without any additional software or drivers in Windows 7, but comes with a mini-disc that I just threw away. The picture quality is about right for the price. The mechanical lens will need some adjustment by the owner to ensure proper focus. The cord length is about 4.5' (will update with a more accurate measurement shortly).
