Similar spec to the Logitech Pro 4000 i.e. built in microphone and 1.3 Mega pixel CCD lens (not your inferior CMOS).
But cheaper (how does that work?) normally 49.99 pounds, but buy it from Amazon and cheaper again and free postage.
Easy to set up (Win XP SP2) install s/w first then plug in hardware.
The microphone (with echo cancelation - right sound technology) works great, so no more need for the headset and external microphone. Does however come with external headset, but have had no need to use it (perhaps only in you want a private conversation)
Excellent in low light (Right light Technology) and it has the ability to track your face/head and zoom in - if selected.
Then it has the advantage of syncing your face, lips, eyes to animation characters, known as avatars, great fun for the kids (and adults). One slight warning - it can not use this function to calibrate in poor / bad lighting conditions. Would ony work if the room was naturally lighted i.e. daylight.
Also nice mount to work either on flat surface or bend round LCD flat panel screen
Overall, excellent clear pictures and good microphone response without the annoying echo problem associated when using speakers.
Works with Skype (using external video plugin - spontania [...] and its free)
