3 out of 5 eggschoppy video

Pros: Still images are decent. What's nice is the way it adjusts itself with room lighting so the picture comes in clear.

Cons: Video is choppy. Almost completely unusable.
The problem is, when the camera auto-adjusts for lighting, the video slows down.
I'm going to guess the little processor inside isn't strong enough to handle both video and picture quality at the same time, so one suffers.

Other Thoughts: If it were possible to adjust camera settings, that would be great, and I'm sure it would fix the problems I'm talking about.
However, even then, the user would have to set up their own lighting to make up for the lack of auto-adjust.

3 out of 5 eggsOk for the price

Pros: Its a good picture taking webcam

Cons: I've used this webcam with all three major OS platforms and during use, it would slowly degrade in quality. The camera becomes unusable and very choppy after about 5 minutes of use.

Other Thoughts: Ok for the price but if you're looking for a webcam for periodic web chatting then look elsewhere.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for Skype or iChat!

Pros: Great picture quality for stills or recording video.

Cons: Terrible fps in webchat, like Skype and iChat. Averaged about 5fps, if that.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my parents, since they have an older iMac. It performed very poorly during a Skype call, when my iSight camera had worked perfectly before. I thought it might be the age of their machine, so I tried it on my Mac Pro and it was just as bad. Recording video to the hard drive seems to work fine, but this is NOT a good camera for video chatting.

3 out of 5 eggsNot great but not bad.

Pros: Good for its price and my use, which is an occasional video chat or troll on the internet. Microphone is good quality.

Cons: Kind of grainy.

This is just a slight con, but it leans slightly to the right and is rather annoying to see me tilted.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad buy, but you could get better for just a little more.

2 out of 5 eggsLow FPS

Pros: Good quality picture even in poor lighting, fair sound quality.

Cons: Very low FPS in web chat.

Other Thoughts: The picture quality is fine, but after trying it out in skype, msn, etc, the fps is very unsuitable for video chat.
My mistake going for a cheaper cam, I wouldn't recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggssimple webcam, no bloatware, no drivers required for windows 7

Pros: No bloatware drivers, simple installation

Cons: I guess has no auto focus.

Other Thoughts: I am always annoyed by clunky bloatware drivers (like those from Logitech of a few years ago), and webcam drivers tend to be some of the worst offenders.

I was happy to find this little guy, no drivers required for windows 7. Good resolution and works great with Windows 7. Just plug in, and it works. No software installation necessary at all. I did not even need to connect to windows update.
