Ease of Use

Works great, except the autofocus keeps on changing the focus. If you disable all is good, but that also disables the low light detection.

A cyber-Monday deal! This little gem was a bargain at $30 and my wife loves it. The installation was simple and quick. If there is a downside to this device, it is the mounting. All there is is a moveable rubber link that may or may not fit what you're trying to attach it to. Ours rests on top of the monitor, but it's not very firmly attached.

Love this Webcam

by A customer on 12/11/2010

WOW - I bought this webcam to replace an old Logitech Quickcam Express which would not work with Win7. This camera has a great picture and sound and exceeds all of my expectations.

Great Web-Cam!

by A customer on 12/13/2010

This web-can is great, great value you for such a clear picture, and by clear, I mean CLEAR. Only con is that it auto-focuses quite often, possibly x2 a minute, so it'll be blurry for a few seconds then go back to it's clear picture. If you are able to cope with that, I DEFINITELY recommend this. I usuallt use this on Skype and Oovoo, and the mic is also quite crisp (or so my friends say), they also mention how the picture is nice except for when it decides to auto focus. Overall, 9/10!
