Ease of Use

Great HD webcam at such a decent price. After receiving it, plugging it in, and it works just fine even without installing any software with the CD. Both for Windows XP and 7 detected it right away without any problem. Maybe you would like to install the full software in order to have it fully function as stated on the manual but for now it just works perfectly fine for me as a web chat camera. Nice product! And compact!

Great product and easy to use

by Customer on 3/12/2009

This is my first cam. Overall it is very easy to set up and use. The pictures and videos are great and adjust to the lighting of the room. It only happened once, but the sound and video has separated on playback. Sometimes I have to reboot the software as it is very slow.
