Consumer review (newegg.com)

No software

 

I wish I could return this, really thought I could just go to microsofts site and download something to use my webcam outside of msn/skype/etc. The only reason I bought it was for taking pictures that would be easier to get on my computer than my...

The quality isn't awful, its just fine for the price. It doesn't get too blurry with fast motions

The mounting sucks, it doesn't really attach, just kinda loosely hangs on top of your monitor and will fall off a lot. ZERO software!! There's no way to just turn your webcam on by yourself to take pictures with it or anything at all. You have to...

Great for Skype / G+ / Jabber

 

These little cameras are inexpensive and get the job done. They have a low profile and mount on monitors easily. The video quality is good for the price, just don't expect the world from a sub 20 dollar camera

none. remember you get what you pay for

Easy to use and setup

 

This camera works 10x better than any built in camera. Pictures, audio and video are very clear and the software that comes with it is fun. My only reserves are the price(but it is worth the money) and it does focus every 10 seconds if you keep moving...

Great Webcam

 

Clear picture, small in size, big on performance

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works great but where's the software?

 

Solid device for the price. I'd buy this again, for sure. It only gets 4/5 stars because there was no software included. Windows 7 found the device right away.

Great little webcam with built-in microphone. I have used this to Skype and it worked flawlessly. It has the ability to rest on top of almost any surface

No software included, so I had to download freeware to test. Also, the mounting of this device is chinsy and most likely will fall or get knocked over

Worked as advertised

 

There was an initial issue with getting sound to work with my 5.1 set up. Once I got that solved, its worked like a charm.
