5 out of 5 eggsFollow Up Review

Pros: I'm running 3 of these webcams on a Core2 Quad HP XW4600 Workstation running Windows Server 2008 R2 with 8GB DDR2 6400 RAM. I use Ispy software to use the cameras as a security system. See my 3/11/2013 review for detailed steps.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a follow up to my review "Works great as security camera" on 3/11/2013.

I was able to successfully get these cameras working on a Windows 2008 R2 x64 server by installing the Desktop Experience feature.

1. Open Server Manager: click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and click Server Manager.
2. In the Features Summary section, click Add features.
3. Select the Desktop Experience check box, and then click Next.
4. Complete the wizard by clicking Install.

5 out of 5 eggsAlfred Hitchcock designed this...

Pros: -Super great quality for a video chat, selfies, instagram, what ever kids are into these days.
-Durable, small
-Long cable to go around a huge desk or whatever.
-Great automatic ISO

Cons: -Doesn't do my work
-Can't sing

Other Thoughts: The software it comes with is also good. It's standard picture taking and video recording, with LOTS of neat effects. This is seriously underpriced, someone should probably do something..

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Function

Pros: Quality was pretty good when I was able to make it work with Skype.

Cons: Doesn't function with most applications.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if it's an issue with my motherboard or what, but I've installed the latest drivers multiple times, to no avail. It simply does not work with most applications, for whatever reason.

4 out of 5 eggsCa,

Pros: Works
Cheap
designed to synch to VoIP

Cons: not a good HD resolution (but it works for normal chatting)
the clip sitting method is a little annoying to deal with

Other Thoughts: if you own the monitor and plan on using it for a while without moving the webcam, try using a light adhesive to stick it to the computer so it doesn't fall off if say you turn your ceiling fan up to high.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Raspberry Pi and waterproof!

Pros: I have this attached to a Raspberry Pi running mjpeg-streamer, overlooking a robin bird's nest in a tree, and the video/images are very good at a 1280x1024 resolution with true MJPEG output. Color temperature is not perfect, contrast is low, but that is actually perfect for post processing. I wanted this put up quick as the eggs were hatching soon and did not have time to make an enclosure for it. Figuring if it got wet and shorted out, I would just replace, I put it up in the tree as is. Surprisingly, this camera has survived, and worked continuously through several soaking thunderstorms. The webcam had to be attached to a pole and I figured it would be easy to drill through the plastic base. Not so! The base was actually made of a pretty decently thick metal.

In short, this is a very well made and reliable webcam, with features and quality far above the very reasonable price.

Cons: None for this price.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap and good picture quality... Focuses well and has a pretty decent built in mic. Plug and play.

Cons: Can't figure out how to zoom and the mic has some static which is normal with webcams.

2 out of 5 eggsordered 2, one is broken

Pros: cheap, good quality at low light, fast shipping

Cons: ordered 2 at same time, one is defective

Other Thoughts: device tested on GNU/Linux openSUSE 12.3 and FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE

Ordered 2 of these, fast shipping - thanks. However one isn't working, video was washed out right off the bat and becoming more and more over-exposed, so now only 'ghost' images, which can barely be seen - after about 1 hour of operation. This unit is running very hot.

The other camera works fine, image looks good in low light, is cool to touch. I was looking for something inexpensive, however it seems I am going to spend more time fooling around with a return/exchange than the money saved.

Check other reviews to see if this is a common issue..

5 out of 5 eggsLove it on my Mac Mini (Late 2012)

Pros: Build Quality of Stand is outstanding - Tilt in all directions and raises/lowers easily.

Works perfect with my Mac Mini (Late 2012)

Love the slightly matte finish on the screen, it's not too matte for me and I usually prefer glossy screens

Built in 4 port USB 3.0 Hub

Looks great on 1080p (non Native resolution) - I didn't have my Mini-Display Port to Display Port Cable the first day I got it so I hooked it up using a HDMI cable (which is limited to 1920x1080 which is non-native for this monitor) and it looked REALLY good! Usually when you run at a non-native resolution it doesn't look too good...

Cons: No Display Port cable included (they should ditch the VGA cable and put in a display port to mini-display port cable!)

Other Thoughts: I tried this monitor on my Mac using the Display Port to Dual DVI adapter (from Apple) and I couldn't get this monitor to work with my Mac, however when I used the display port connection (with a mini display port cable adapter) it worked perfect! Overall I am loving this monitor, the shipping packaging was great, the overall monitor quality is great. I'm just loving this monitor and with the Newegg deal the price was as good as I've seen (585$ after discount)
