OK webcam, but too expensive here


Gave it 4 stars because I got mine free bundled with a better webcam. For free, it does a good job, but for $15, there's better stuff out there. I don't use it for video chat, but I've used it in the past to look under a wall-mounted TV to find the...

Small, simple design, adjustable focus, fair picture quality. Windows Vista, XP, and Linux compatible.

Well, I unfortunately sell these things and others. Save your money. Buy a Swann Versacam or Swann Opti.

Picture is terrible. Picture is not clear at all. Enlarge the picture distorts due to it's small resolution.
