Well, what can i say, it looked great, resonable price, came with a free mic, and it had great software, i went straight for it.
it came in good time, brilliant, it worked, done videos, pictures everything perfectly, and the mic was brilliant too.
two months along the line, well, the mic no longer works, but that was just a freebe anyway, and the cam is causing even more trouble.
firstly, it will not stay connected, at first it took me a very long time to get my computer to remember that the drivers were already installed, and get the program to recognise that the webcam was indeed already plugged in... but i perservered, and with much effort, reinstalling drivers, and using different hard drives, i finaly got it to work again.
but now it will not work indefinatly, it will run for about 10 seconds before it cuts out and instantly reconects, so for online webcamming, it is terible, for you have to resend the web invitation every ten seconds! or less
also apart from that, it has started making my pc crash and even shut down, giving me driver errors and then completely shutting down.
well, as i said, this camera was good right up untill it past the time zone were it could be returned, i have had it about 4 months now, so thats 2 months of struggling with it, but the only place it belongs is in the bin! if you want something that will last more than 2 months, do not buy this, biggest waste of 30 quid i ever spent

I'd echo the experiences of the poster a couple down. Initially it worked like a dream, but it is now incredibly temperamental (after a month or so) - some days it works, others it doesn't. When it does work, the mic may or may not work, and it may or may not crash my PC. (complete lock up - switch off at the wall job)

For me, this is going in the bin - I've reverted to a geriatric Philips webcam which works fine.

(NB - I use XP - I wonder if the experience is better with Vista?)

Bought this sometime ago and it single handedly stopped me using Skype for video calls (until I got a laptop with a webcam). From day one the picture quality from this little camera has been horrendous. I'm either bright yellow (quite an interesting look for an Indian) so grainy that no one could ever make me out or just lost in a dark haze. I've used it in any number of conditions - including with professional lights (I'm a videographer) - and it's just terrible. And yes I've messed around with settings, left everything on auto...played with focus etc...nothing helps!

definitely a case of you get what you pay for!

A good webcam but be aware that this camera does not have drivers for Vista x64 yet so will not work

The aftersales support was the letdown but it was a good camera all the same. The software program was also good.
