Vista driver not compatible with 64 bit!

 

I hope that Philips comes out with a 64 bit version.

I am posting is because I've tried this on Windwos XP fine but it didn't work for Vista x64. I read that it was successful for some on some forums but I imagine that they had a 32 bit system. I just built a new system (Intel 6600 with Vista x64). I...

Doesn't work for Windows Vista Ultimate (64 bit)

Don't Waste Your Time With This

 

My Quick Cam Pro 4000 out performs this thing at a much better price. I put everything back in the box and giving it to Good Will.

It didn't blow up when I opened the box

I could find nothing good to say about this camera or it's bundled software. Worst picture I've seen from a web cam. Low light capability also very poor. A total was of money. Lens is manual focus, that is crazy. Mounting base is one of the worst I've...

Great Picture!

 

if your not planning on using Vista get it!

this Cam has a very good picture, I have owned 5 different Webcams since they have had webcams, and this one is the best so far. better than my Quick cam pro 4000

NO WINDOWS VISTA DRIVERS ; when I contacted Philips about that, they said that at this time there wasn't any plans for Vista drivers for this Cam

The Portable Web Cam for those on the move..

 

Not too long ago an old high school friend and me were re-united via the Internet. He is now working in Kuwait and we chat almost daily when we find the time. When we first started chatting, he had a web cam set up so that I could see him. I eventually...

Nifty little device

 

Bought this in a play sale for 6 quid and i have to say it was money well spent. I only bought it so that my ma could see her grandson and i have to say that i was more than a little impressed by it.

PC health warning

 

This webcam seems very good value at the discount price, it is well built, easy to install and performs adequately for chat purposes. But only three stars because imho the design is flawed. Great care is needed once this is plugged into a valuable...
