2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: OK value compared to other webcams. Image and sound quality as expected given the specs and price point. Plug and play installation with no issue using it with Skype.

Cons: I found the cord length to be too short to reach from the top of the monitor to the computer underneath a desk. I had to use a USB extension cable to place it on a monitor. The base itself isn't design in a way that can firmly grip the top of a monitor, the webcam shifts easily during use.

Other Thoughts: Might be worth increasing your budget and buying a webcam with a better base design and feature set.

2 out of 5 eggsNo software

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

Cons: 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 search around to download a program to do that for you, which isn't fun or easy. All the programs come free... but in order to actually put the snapshots you take onto your computer you have to shell out 50 bucks for a webcam program. Come on mircosoft throw us a bone already.

Other Thoughts: 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 phone. oops guess not.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Skype / G+ / Jabber

Pros: 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.

Cons: none. remember you get what you pay for!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great but where's the software?

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Other Thoughts: 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.
