4 out of 5 eggsit works

Pros: you plug it in, you go to gmail, you got video/audio

Cons: not quite the resolution of my other one, but good enough

Other Thoughts: i already had one of these on other laptop, so i went with this one versus a cheaper one on tiger. you plug this in, you go to gmail, and you start hanging out. it's that simple. i do lnux, so a free os, free video chat, and a cheap webcam appeal to me. my first call was to my son in korea, my daughter in the ca desert, and me in ga. all at once. it not only worked, it worked very well.

1 out of 5 eggsCouldnt download the drivers

Pros: looks promising, i got drivers for another model ( unsure if newer or older but it makes little difference and the included software looks nice, but i was

Cons: no drivers on the website, my sister had bought this from the store a few months ago but had lost the cd. i told her i could find the drivers online but i was wrong. the gearhead website is horrid and there are only drivers for select devices, not all. so if you are planning on losing the cd, dont buy this, you will be beat. 1 star because if you're going to sell a product that requires drivers, at least let them download the drivers for the product they buy if they happen to lose the cd

Other Thoughts: this probably wouldve been a 4-5 star camera but i couldnt get those dang drivers
