Good Bang For The Buck


This is a good deal for typical usage as a web cam, video surveillance camera, and a number of other areas that don't require perfect color reproduction.

Low price, good frame rate, works with Linux right out of the box. Plug it in, and it just works. A small blue LED lights up when the camera is recording, so there are no surprises.

Colors are noticeably imperfect. Not enough to worry the casual user, but you'll see it.

Does work in Linux


Hey, it works in Linux. if you get the (usb_submit_urb) -28 error, or (depending on where it is reported) no space left on device, you have too many devices plugged into the hub, and that includes external hubs.

My blue-green shirt is orange, can't seem to change it to the correct color.

Excellent webcam!


This is my third webcam. I've had both a Logitech and Creative before this, and they held up MAYBE 2-3 months. That's also fighting with them to work all the time. This one seems to be better quality all the way around, especially for a cheap price. I...

Good quality, and resolution. Fairly fast capture rate (but that always depends on the program your using it in). The magnetic clip is great for positioning, as long as the cord doesn't get in the way. It automatically adjusts to the lighting around...

Sometimes the colors jump around, but if you give it a minute it should go back to normal. My computer doesn't always recognize the software right away, but if you unplug it and plug it back in a couple times it works just fine.

Not worth the cash


It's a cheap piece of junk that is about as stable as Charles Manson. Blue screened the computer after 20 minutes and stopped identifying to the computer after 2 weeks (whether with original or latest drivers). Called Newegg and they took care of me...

Excellent microphone

This is is NOT a rebranded HP camera although it's small and straightforward in it's design. You might think the magnetic clip is useful but it's not. It severely limits the view direction and snaps back otherwise. You cannot attach this to a regular...

this webcam is an HP!!!


i was reluctant at first to purchased this camera because there is only 1 customers' feedback about it at the time of my purchased he is emphasizing its use on linux. but i'm glad i did because this is an HP camera!!!. i was so surprised when after...

this is a great camera, the resolution is very clear and the capture rate is fast. this is more than enough for my online use. the magnetic camera base is sleek. the camera overall quality is those of the the branded ones.

the clip base just barely fits enough the top of my 19" viewsonic lcd monitor. this must have been designed for the far more thinner lcd monitors, but not a big deal as i can always clip it somewhere else.

Nifty design, not so great in Linux


Camera has an LED that comes on when it is on the air.

In Linux, the camera has a very muddy, green/yellow cast to it.
