5 out of 5 eggsIt's Rather Unfortunate

Pros: That a decent product gets a bad review because a user doesn't know what they're doing or didn't check for compatibility with their OS. One user states that the unit didn't work on their install of Linux while a later user's review states that it did with an install of Ubuntu 12. Purchsaed my unit from a friend who upgraded and it works fine on 7 (which is on the OS compatibility list), and has decent picture quality for what I use it for.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: No product should be denied an objective review simply because the user didn't check the unit specifications against their operating system. No where in the specs on newegg's product specification tab, or even on Microsoft's product page does it state that the unit is compatible with Linux and there is good reason for it. The correct thing to do is chalk it up as a learning experience and RMA or log in to your sellers account.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: Decent cam for the money. 720p is nice. Also, it's compact and adorable.

Cons: Not crazy about the attempted auto-install of bloatware. Had some lag and sync issues when recording, but video chat appears to be ok.

Other Thoughts: bought primarily for video chat so will likely not be using the higher resolution, but it's there if I need it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Webcam

Pros: Really nice webcam for the price. Works right out of the box no installation required other than plugging it in. Look very sleek and professional on top of my computer monitor.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I do like the flexible mount for this, it makes it easy to connect it to whatever you want.

5 out of 5 eggsLinux Compatibility

Pros: Worked out of the box on Ubuntu 12.
Camera was disassembled and bare board placed in weatherproof container for outdoor monitoring. Has been running flawlessly in rain and sun for some time.

Cons: As stated, the camera is fixed focused. More over the focus ring is glued into place. While this is great news for the average user who might worry about the focus drifting due to impacts, be aware if you plan on modifying it.

Extreme low-light sensitivity is not that great. My camera is fixed staring at the sky. Morning, mid-day, and evening skies are bright and crisp, dusk to dawn is pitch black.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent price vs specs

Pros: Better than VGA, smooth 30fps, Microsoft hardware, so easy plug'n'play with option for extra software goodies.

Cons: Fixed focus. (?)

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a family friend, I went w/ the fixed focus since fewer (no?) moving parts means simpler and more reliable. Plugged in, recognized and ready to go in less than a minute.

4 out of 5 eggsMost Excellent webcam, you should buy this

Pros: High quality video performance.
compact design.
easy to mount anywhere, nearly.
Works on windows 2000, XP, and 7x64. Haven't tested it on other platforms.
Not the best quality in low light, but looks amazing in sunlight.
Seems pretty durable considering (see below).

Combine this webcam with a 30' USB extension

Cons: Does not take capture images at the advertised 1280 x 800, it is capped at 1280 x 720.
There is no software within the unmarked package.
Good thing I know how to use the internet to find the proper software.

DHL aka USPS are not professionals and do not care about your package.
Instead of leaving it in my huge mailbox, it was left sitting in the driveway as if it was just thrown towards my gate from the mail jeep.

Although there are no discernible damage so far, I am sure NewEgg will not honor any warranty if it does end up failing to work due to being left in 108 degree heat in a dirt drive way and having been thrown around like it was trash by the mail service.

Other Thoughts: I bought the non-business one for 24.99 a couple of weeks ago and decided to buy another, to my surprise it had gone up in price by $6. But the 'business' version was only $1 more than I originally paid for the other one.

Also it is worthy to note, the Microsoft T4H-00002 Business and the Microsoft T3H-00011 L2 have the exact same specs.
A difference in price and model makes absolutely zero sense.

1 out of 5 eggsOK WebCam

Pros: Works with Windows 7 and Skype very well, one of the the best webcams to get for that use, it will do 720p HD Skype video calls with some user modification of Skype config files under Win 7.

Cons: I gave it 1 egg becuse it does not work with Linux.
I tried all kinds of thing to get this to work in a reliable way under Linux and I can definitely say this hardware is NOT compadible, caused boot hangs, kernel panic, and what ever else you can think of.

Other Thoughts: All the software avaible for this is verry poor, don't even bother installing it, jest install the driver from Windows update then say No to anything else.
