Creative Live! Cam Connect HD

 

The mid-priced Creative Live! Cam Connect HD doesn't stand out on performance or features, but it's a noticeable upgrade from the built-in webcam on the average laptop lid.

Sleek, diminutive design. Plug-and-play compatible. Skype HD certified. Clear audio recordings

Noisy video recordings. Only captures mono sound. Doesn't record in 1080p

The 720p HD sensor and auto-focus lens record video at up to 30 frames per second. Built-in H.264 hardware video processing usually helps here. Alas, video quality was still a disappointment in my tests. Recorded 1280-by-720-pixel footage in H.264 mode...

Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Perfect for Skype users, the Live! Cam Voice shows off Creative's audio pedigree.

Adaptive-array microphones • Wide-angle lens • Headset included

Lengthy installation process • Poor low-light performance

Creative WebCam Live! Ultra Review and Prices

 

The WebCam Live! Ultra is a respectable (although not inexpensive) choice for individuals buying their first webcam. Image quality is only average, but it's as good as the quality you will get from most budget-price webcams.

Easy to set up and use, impressive software bundle

no pan or tilt features, base works better on LCD and notebook displays than CRTs or other flat surfaces

Creative WebCam Live! Ultra for Notebooks Review and Prices

 

Creative's WebCam Live! Ultra for Notebooks has a price tag that's high enough to move it out of the fun gadget category and into more serious territory. If you have a true need (rather than a simple desire) for a webcam, the Ultra's features and...
