I read the reviews before I bought the webcam. Just like everyone says this is a great webcam: easy to install and image is sharp. I love it and highly recommand to people who are thinking of buying it. You can only find the product this good with such a low price in buy.com. I've been the member of buy.com since 2005 and I bought almost all my electronics from here.

I use this camera with skype and the sound/video quality is really good. I really like the flexible base which allows easy mounting anywhere.

Excellent value for the money

by KT on 12/30/2008

I purchased two of these, one for my mother and one for me, so that she could watch the kids open presents on Christmas morning for a bit. Neither of us had any problem installing the device and mom is middle-of-the-road in terms of her computer knowledge. The picture and sound quality are both great, in my opinion. Also, we both like how the attached stand is flexible to where you can put it on the top of your LCD or CRT monitor, you can place it on the top of your desk surface or I'd imagine you can use it on top of your laptop screen so it's pretty versatile in that sense. All in all, this webcam is a great value for under $50. Read More
