5.0 out of 5 stars A good little webcam! 31 Aug 2011
By Peter
Webcams have come on a long way since the days of the bulky ball/big-base style. This Creative Live Cam Socialize HD is a nice small bit of kit: it sits nicely on top of a flat screen TV/monitor - probably on top of a laptop too - and is designed so it won't slip off; there is a decent amount of tilt available to adjust the webcam up and down; the webcam USB cable is of a decent length and it actually looks nice!

Video quality is top notch compared to anything I've tried before - well they do say it is HD! Audio quality is pretty good with the built-in microphone - there isn't a need for a separate headset, thankfully!
One feature I like is the intuitive white LED around the lens lights up to let you know the webcam is in use and goes off when it is not active - unlike other webcams with bright green LEDs, this is a glow which is not at all distracting. The software provided allows you to set a password which you will need to type in before the webcam can be activated in applications - a good privacy/security feature, I suppose.

I have tried the webcam with Windows 7 and Linux (Ubuntu) and it works flawlessly with both. I have only tried it with the Creative software - which is full of lots of features, settings and tweaks - and Skype. The webcam works great with Skype and I've had positive comments in terms of audio quality.

With this being a high-quality (HD) webcam, I am presuming you will need an internet connection with a decent speed/bandwidth, as higher quality video = bigger size to transmit - this is not an issue for me, although it may be for people experiencing jerky video and audio cutting out problems with the likes of Skype. The key issue is probably upload speed, which is very poor in the UK as a whole.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor camera 6 Mar 2012
By Sarah
I bought this camera after having a Logitech HD camera lost in a move, and I would
not recommend this product to anybody. The picture is poor and the
camera itself is designed poorly as anytime you move the cable the camera
moves with it. Sorry, seems like I am the only one, but Logitech is way
better and Im going to buy another one right now. I am disappointed with Creative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit 24 Oct 2011

Creative 73VF061000004 Live Cam Socialize HD
Bought this web cam for my Granddaughter who has left UK to live and work in Milan. Keeping in touch with her through Skype is very good, but the Web Cam on her Laptop was very poor and the reception was dodgy to say the least. However the picture and reception from this Web Cam is nothing short of excellent. The picture is clear and the sound level is very good.Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great webcam 1 Feb 2012
By ortibal
Wanted something plug'n'play - this installs with no drama, discs or downloads on XP, Vista and Windows 7 (though there is a Windows update for it that will appear when your next batch comes around). Very high quality picture, good sensitive mic. Fits easily on the top of a flat-screen monitor or laptop. I am emigrating soon and will be ordering a few of these to distribute to family. Best webcam I've ever owned or used by a mile, and a bargain to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality 20 Jan 2012

This is a nice USB Plug n play device. It has the added advantage of a built in microphone which means one less lead.

Picture quality is good... Not brilliant but good, and does the job.

Enjoy it.
