I am generally pleased with this product, although now I only use it for video calls on Skype.

Some reviewers reported audio feedback which made their Skype sessions insufferable. I have not experienced any such problems despite having the cam in front of my speakers and I suspect that these reviewers have an older version of Skype installed which pre-dates the call quality and feedback reduction improvements. For reference, at the time of writing I was using the manufacturer's driver version 5.7.19.121, and version 4.0.0.206 of Skype.

The only problems I have had with this item are as follows:
- Dead pixel. There is one dead pixel on the sensor which is annoyingly right in centre frame and appears as a white dot on video, which leaves a faint trail when there is movement.
- Flexibility. A very minor issue, but the neck is not as flexible as you might hope. It does not like acute angles, and will topple over if it becomes unbalanced.
- Focusing. Can be tricky to focus accurately with the manual focus.
- Whine. When the microphone and video capture are used at the same time, I have noticed a whine in the audio playback. I think this is EM feedback in the microphone caused by the image sensor being powered up. The problem is not evident when using the microphone on its own.

Apart from that, the quality is great. It has great resolution and a whole raft of video effects which can be very fun. Installation is really easy too.

At this price, it's recommended for both Skypers and Youtubers.

** Update: 27/06/09 **

I contacted the manufacturer through their web site and reported the dead pixel.

I have never owned a webcam before but purchased this on the basis of reviews. I was not to be disappointed.
The camera was bought as gift and was to be used with skype on a laptop with Vista.
Setup was very easy and took less than 5 minutes.
The picture quality from the camera was excellent, even in less than ideal light conditions.
Sound quality from the built in microphone was also good- loud and very clear.
Skype recognised the camera straight away and the results using the camera for a video call were impressive.
Build quality of the camera also seemed fairly good and robust.
Well worth £25.

Having family and friends living abroad we were recommended that we use Skype. We purchased the Hue Webcam. It arrived in 7 seven days.
It was very easy to set up and I made contact with my sister in Holland and I have to say it was great!. Picture was good and the sound was good.
I am now a skype-aholic. I would recommend this webcam highly. It does what it says on the Tin !

I ordered this as a fault with my laptop's built-in webcam neat I couldn't be seen by she who must be obeyed when we chatted on msn each night. Some might say being unable to see me is a GOOD thing, but she seems to enjoy looking at me, so...I ordered this based on previous reviews!

The installation was super easy, and after a little tinkering MSN found the cam.

And when I saw the image quality I was astounded - it was fantastic! Tracking was fast and smotth, and I much prefer the manual focusing of the lens to using a digital zoom function.

So in short, if you want a webcam with great image quality for not a lot of cash, get one of these - they rock!

What I like most about this webcam is the flexibility of the coiled neck.
It really does help when you're able to move the camera head around moving children.
Also webcam is solidly built, quite sturdy. It doesnt feel like it'll fall apart from over-use.
The camera pictures are very clear.
All round good buy.

For the cost I think its great value for money.

I'm a mac user, and I'm quite into dabbling in a bit of stop-motion animation in my free time, and the iSight on my computer just doesn't cut the mustard for that, so I thought that I'd look a little bit further into cool inexpensive webcams.

I'm a bit of a sucker for well designed products like this one, but this one actually had function in its style, the kind of function such as manoeuvrability that I crave. So I thought to myself, fantastic, I'll buy it.

I showed my dad, and obviously he thought it was just a big gimmick comme d'habitude, but when it arrived I let him play with it for 10 minutes on his PC, and after that very short time he was sold and the black model was on its way to him. He now uses it all the time on skype to me, and all seems to work well.

It really does make that much of an impact in my experience, great stuff.

One minor gripe is that if you use it in its stand and bend it really far forward it will fall on its face, as the base isn't quite heavy enough. Just popping a book on the cable will fix this though.

Works well with both Mac OS X and Windows in my experience (I haven't used it as a main camera on the Mac side as I already have one) and I would recommend it to anyone.
