4 out of 5 eggsgood cam for PS3

Pros: long cord, works well with Eye Create, the kids love the program on the PS3. Mic seems to work well also

Cons: the cord seems stiff, so it's a little hard to situate the cam as it likes to be unbalanced somewhat. I don't recall having that problem with the PS2 Eye toy

Other Thoughts: I'm going to try this with Gran Turismo 5's cockpit view, but haven't set it up yet as I just started the game last week

4 out of 5 eggsCool

Pros: Works as advertised. Easy to insert IR filter for FTIR projects.

Cons: Weird frame corruption with Cheese webcam studio.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if frame corruption is hardware or software. Am blaming Cheese until Ubuntu updates.

5 out of 5 eggsA Perfect Mic Input

Pros: The mic picks up only the voice. Sitting in front of a TV you hear no game noise from the mic, just pure voice. Seems as if its a directional mic? Video is actually pretty good and tracks well for a $35 camera. Great when your showing friends new gadgets over the camera.

Cons: Would have liked a bit more free play in swivel and rotation adjustments. Camera seems to point low, as if it should be placed above your tv. Propped up now so its okay.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality webcam.

Pros: It has a higher frame rate than typical webcams, it has a microphone array. I love the Eye Create software, but...

Cons: Eye Create has a nasty problem of crashing on its startup.
I have to wait for the Sony Wand to be released.

Other Thoughts: The only reason I bought this is cause I know that the Sony Wand requires it. When they release it, it should obviously be packaged together. I doubt its microphone works well for rock band, but I haven't tested it.

5 out of 5 eggsSomehow Cuter than I thought

Pros: - Can capture at High frames
- Mic is very efficient and clear in capturing sound
- Focus adjustment works phenomenal
- Works on my PC and MAC using PS3EyeSetup drivers
- Can work at 75Hz and 125 FPS without going nuts
- Easy to setup. The PS3 works out of the box and the computers picks it up right away.

Somehow, I thought it to be bigger in size but it is pleasing to see it so tiny. Sync ratio is great for a webcam and recording videos using the PS3 is as easy as it can get.

Cons: - It has a balance problem. The base it stands on is too short. Moving the wire makes the camera wobble.
- A bit grainy than the original Eyetoy. But not very noticeable
- Not many titles on the PS3 to support it.

Apart from that. None.

Other Thoughts: Sony has neglected this peripheral. PS Eye could be a great product and there aren't many titles to support it well.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Camera

Pros: I bought this camera initially for the PS3, but then decided I would rather use it for the computer. I downloaded some third party drivers and the camera works quite well. I was able to use skype with it. It can produce an image that is 640x480 60 fps or 120 fps.

Cons: Since I mainley use it for the computer, I cant say there are any cons because it was meant for the PS3.

Other Thoughts: Give it a try! Its only 35 bucks, and it is almost as good compared to the new logitech.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Microphone!

Pros: Excellant microphone. Don't have to wear an ear piece.

Cons: None, for me.

Other Thoughts: I bought the Playstation Eye soley for a microphone. Never used it as a camera, so can't comment on that. What a major improvement over using bluetooth ear devices! You never have to recharge it and it turns on automatically with your ps3. I highly recommend it for a gaming mic.
