Affordable, Descent Webcam

 

Price, Ease of Installation, Convenient Size, Style,especially the quality of the images(Crispy and shearp).

The rotations of the webcam are not as good as I expected them to be.

No built in Mic, won't fit LCD monitors

 

I was under the impression for some reason (perhaps a user's review) that this camera had a Mic which I required. It did not so I had no desire to keep it. Never the less I tested it out to see if it would fit my 17" LCD monitor (it didn't even come...

Can be adjusted to many angles

Poor video quality, Won't fit any LCd monitors that I've ever seen (only lapotps), no built in Mic as I had previously thought

Decent Camera for the Price

 

Good value for money. Hassle free operation.

Compact, easy installation, versatile. Works really well with a laptop, without TOO much cable slack

Doesn't work in very bright (outdoor) conditions. The clip is not wide enough to secure itself to a 19" flat panel monitor

Decent Little Thing

 

Good picture quality for its size.

A little loose clipping on my laptop screen, doesn't pinch down to the thin width of it.

Design

 

I like the design of this web cam. I like how it can almost blend in with everything. There should be more colors 2 choose from.

A4 Tech PK 835

 

EASY TO USE REAL TIME VIDEO VERY GOOD SUPERB RANGE OF CONTROLS VERY GOOD PRICE I BUY THEM IN THE UK AND GIVE THEM TO FRIENDS ALL OVER THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY ARE BETTER THAN MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE CAMERAS

THE BALL JOINT IS POOR IT NEEDS A SYSTEM FOR TIGHTENING UP THE BALL IT WOULD BE USEFUL TO HAVE A MICROPHONE INTEGRAL TO THE CAMERA IT WOULD ALSO BE USEFUL TO HAVE A STICK ON BRACKET SO THE EXISTING CAMERA COULD BE ATTACHED TO REGULAR MONITOR
