Inexpensive, easy to "install" but I am annoyed that Yahoo Messenger doesn't recognize it - this was a problem for a previous reviewer. Any advice on getting YM to recognize it? If YM won't work with it then purchasing the software to run with iChatAV...

As I said above, this is a pretty decent basic webcam. The picture Quality is acceptable, especially at this price. The ability to work with both Mac's and pc's was critcal to me as I have a Mac, but most of my friends have pc's (they have yet to see...

Small and very light. Fairly easy to adjust. Pretty good picture quality, especially at this price. Very easy to install.This is the ONLY webcam I was able to find that works on both mac and pc!

Usb cord is WAY too short for use with a desktop(need to plug into Usb hub as all 4 Usb ports in use.I had trouble getting yahoo IM to recognize, but OK now.

I've had the worst time trying to get a MAC compatible web cam. I finally have one now, and I like it! While this is certainly not a top of the line product, it is a very inexpensive alternative to the real high end MAC ready web cams. It is very easy...

Small size, very flexible

Not great resolution

The image quality is disappointingly poor. I have a built-in iSight, but I wanted an external cam to film away from my monitor (e.g., for stop motion). The quality of the IceCam images are SO MUCH poo

low price plus a flexible, self-standing gooseneck

image quality is very poor. MUCH worse than the built-in iSight camera on my iMac.

Can't beat the price, especially if using for a MACINTOSH, you don't have many options for webcams, but this one has good quality for the price, not disappointed.

Small, light and adjustablilty....

Short cord so you can't move around, have to purchase software for ICHAT/MAC separately...

I have been searching for a cheap and reliable cam for my mac laptop, finally found it! this thing is portable, good looking, and again, price was right. picture is not really great, but i am using it just to chat with family and friends, not trying to...

price, portability, compatability with MACs, looks are pretty good as well.

not as clear a picture as traditional webcams, but for all the PROS, I would not really complain.

Recommended for people on the go and like to get in touch either with the office or the family while travelling. It helps and also fun for chating.

Small/light. Good for travelling or on the road!

Not too good for image capture.

I like the size of the Ice cam camera. I bought it so I could talk on-line with family and friends and have visual contact. I only wish the flex cord was a little longer than 13 inches. It would make it easier for a better placement of the camera angle...

Lightwieght camera with a positional flex cord.

Flex cord to short.
