Really good image, even in dark. But the software options are really restricted, compared to logitech.
The caoutchouc hook working for standing at the top of the monitor, but in my setup situation, this is not a versatile or genius concept.

I decided to purchase this webcam after reading a large quantity of favorable reviews on the internet, so when it went on sale, it seemed to be a no-brainer. Unfortunately I have not had the same favorable experience that other users claim to have had. Here's some pros and cons from my experience:

Pros: 720p HD image quality; bright image (usually - see below); effects are pretty amusing; decent audio quality

Cons:
- the camera absolutely cannot keep focus, even if you do not move from a single location in front of the camera, it will drop focus again and again. In a 1 minute 9 second video i captured, it dropped focus a total of 9 times, THAT"S OUTRAGEOUS and makes the viewing experience unbearable
- The camera seems to almost constantly be changing brightness levels, usually not too drastically, but sometimes so much that the image suddenly goes very dark, and then bright to the extent that you can hardly make out an image.
- I'm inclined to believe that this may be a software issue, but in a recorded clip i took, the audio skipped ahead multiple times, with only about the first 5 seconds of video having the words and mouth line up. This was so drastic that it left the second half of the video without any audio at all.

Overall, although the image quality is very good, the problems that I've experienced with this webcam should sway anyone away who is contemplating purchasing it.

I recently needed a web cam for my desktop because I don't get to see my girlfriend a lot so we settle for web cam convos. I could have bought a cheaper camera for this purpose but I didn't want to. Now once again, I don't really use the camera for anything else so for me this is perfect, its true colour option is fantastic and really offers great picture quality, on top of that the focusing on this is amazing, you can show items up-close and it will be in excellent quality and have great detail. According to my girlfriend the camera quality is great on the other side, usually the syncing is far better on skype but the New Windows live Beta improves video chatting and even supports wide-screen and HD which is great if you have this camera.

For picture taking. I am a man, a real man and therefore do not stand in front of the camera for more that a few seconds to take a picture, but I will tell you that I have 2 teenage sisters and that they hate how the camera brings out the pimples and the imperfections on their face, they prefer the poor quality camera that's on my netbook, so if your looking for a camera that "makes you look good" I suppose based off of my sisters opinions, I wouldn't get this one.

The sound! I sing, and as for the Microphone, its really not that great for recording purposes but is is great for just web cam convos, probably better than most I've heard. I suggest you get a separate microphone for this purpose, however, I've heard that the software does not support a different mic and that you need a third party software to do this, which does kinda suck. For more info on this issue check out some youtube videos

It's very easy. Throw in the cd, press "next" a few times and plug in the USB cable when prompted. Voilà!

Really pretty too. I was a little surprised as to how small and light it is "in person".

I got this for my girlfriend, when we used to live apart. This thing was very easy to setup, and was simple to use. The only tricky thing that happened was she wouldn't always get the mic working first try, but that was Windows Vista not setting the Mic on top to be default input device. This has great picture quality, and sound is excellent. If you can get this at a great discount, Go ahead and do so. No Complaints here.

Mic works great, too. I've had it for a few years now. It's nice to have a good webcam.

A funny thing is that it possibly has to be plugged into the exact same usb port as it was when the drivers were first installed. This isn't the only usb device that I've seen do that but it is rare behavior and puzzling. So to anyone who's webcam stops working, try plugging it into every usb port you have.

I was in the market for an improved webcam several months ago for video interviews and better quality video calls. This achieved that. My old webcam was a LifeCam model from a decade ago so the quality difference as well as sound quality was incredibly noticeable. There is less blur with rapid movements and it just generally functions better than what I used to have.

My only qualm with my purchase is that it's difficult to adjust the height of the webcam since the rubber piece works great for being on top of a screen but by itself it doesn't function very well. With that said, for the money I paid I don't expect there to have been a better choice at the time than this model. Although it says it's HD, I didn't really notice anything especially clear during video calls or taking photos with it, but I wasn't looking for that type of quality anyways as my internet connection doesn't support that.
