Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good quality

 

Works great no skype and it has very clear video quality. Decent mic

Use manual settings. Mess with the exposure your self. Make sure you have enough light or using a higher exposure will lag the video feed

Cheap and High Quality

 

Get this webcam when it was on sale for only 20 bucks. For the price, it's the best. Image quality is great, and it works fine for all Skype, Google Talk out of the box under Windows 7.

Great Web Cam

 

Purchased this for my mom for her birthday. Her oldest four grandchildren are in college. She loves that she can "see" them when she talks to them. Saves a lot of "i never see them" comments!

Meh

 

Second one of these I've had, the first kept losing sound and then dying entirely, although when it worked it was really good. I'm sincerely hoping the new one works for longer than 6 weeks.

Excellent Clarity

 

This model is very good VFM with a highly noticeable improvement in picture quality from my old cheaper model. Also good fun features to play with. SB

Good quality webcam!

 

I thought this is a very good webcam. The picture quality is very good. Though the sensor isn't HD the software uses interpolation to increase it to 1280 HD - which is does very well. The frame rate is good (but only in well light environments)....
