Other Thoughts: i did not get it from newegg, i got it as a gift from an unknown place, so i didnt bother getting a replacement because of broken clip

5 out of 5 eggsGood camera, good compatibility

Pros: Both XP and Linux work with both the video and the audio. The video capture resolution is higher than most web cams.
Did not require driver installation.

Cons: Visual framerate slows in dark conditions due to increased exposure time.
Sound quality could be better.

Other Thoughts: XP worked out of the box with the sound on this cam but not with my onboard audio.
Bought this to replace an old 160x120 resolution cam.

1 out of 5 eggsKeep moving

Pros: Cheap

Cons: CHEAP.
See other thoughts..

Other Thoughts: 1.3MP is either a low quality image or its just this cam. Either way if you plan on doing the naughty on some website or just taking pics to grandma even your dog will be disgusted with the image quality you receive. I planned on using it for some cheapo home surveillance and am sadly disappointed not even bothering sending it back just throwing it away.

2 out of 5 eggsNot in focus for me

Pros: Nice design, fits nicely on LCD Screen.

Pretty good resolution and face tracking (auto-zoom) does work.

The mic works great.

Cons: 1. I couldn't get it to be in focus. The people on the other end always tell me its out of focus and when I took a snapshot, there was nothing I could do to get it in focus.
I don't see a way to manually focus the camera.

2. The speakers didn't work for me on Vista Home Premium. So I just switched the audio to my superior computer speakers. I was going to do this anyway, so it doesn't matter to me.

Other Thoughts: Basically, it would be a good camera if it would focus.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy install, High Quality

Pros: Worked out of the box. the resolution is great. Both the built in mic and speaker work, as well as all of the buttons.

Cons: It took me about 15 mins to get the sound to work at first. since then its fine. also if you use the mic and speakers on the cam you get feedback. Problem solved with regular desktop speakers or headphones.

Other Thoughts: The mini-cd that comes with the package has useless programs. The cam is plug-and-play and didnt seem to need any drivers
