This is the second one I purchased but it was defective.. I called and they shipping a new one immediately --- along witha free return shipping label.. Can't ask for a better company to do biz with
The product description is misleading. This is a basic webcam and does not do "night vision".
There aren't 6 LEDs just 2, one on each side hidden behind the 6 "led shaped windows". They are bright LEDs, but not IR and the webcam does not see IR, just visible light. It's a glorified flash light really.
If this is "Night Vision" then cave men invented "Night Vision" when they started carrying torches...
This is not a high end webcam, but for what it is, it is a good value. Installation on our Windows 7 machines was effortless and did not require drivers: just plug it in. This webcam itself sits on a swiveling post attached to a large clip. The clip made it easy to attach to most monitors we tried it on. The USB cable attached to it however is a bit short and on the PC end of the cable is a separate plug for the mic which is really short so you need to use a USB plug close to your mic jack.
I ordered this cam because my older one had broken. It was very easy to order it shipped quickly and is exactly what i ordered. its plug'n'play and the 6 leds for the low-light conditions work great for my needs as my apartment is fairly dark even during the day. plus it just looks really cool. i would definitely recommend this cam for someone who needs one but is on a budget.
