100x better than Microsoft's efforts
on 23 December 2011
I needed to upgrade my webcam for Skype (previously using a Logitech QuickCam Zoom which people were telling me looked like **** at their end), so bought this after comparing specs etc on the web. Under XP Pro SP2 if you just plug it in and go then Skype only sees it as a generic 'USB Video device' with only limited tweaking using Skype>video settings>webcam settings. However if you download the latest driver (in my case LCCH_0700_PCDRV_17_1_00_06) then Skype sees the specific device (not a generic one) and a ton more Skype setting tweaks suddenly become available, including tilt/zoom function.
I have friends with Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 or similar and this device is 100x better quality, plus it is in a very neat package to sit on top of your monitor.
