Pros: * The product does what it says and is very easy to install and use - good software interface * Full 5 megapixel sensor (not the interpolated pseudoresolution that you get in multi-'megapixel' webcams) * USB powered (no batteries or separate transformer needed). * Heavy base and useful 'anglepoise' stand. * I used this with a 3m USB 2.0 extension cable and it still works. Cons: * The first one I got had an irritating 'fixed blurry dark spot' in the corner - probably a dust particle on the sensor chip (not on the lens - otherwise it would have been easy to clean off. The lens, BTW, is a tiny pinhole lens). I returned this and got a replacement. The replacement also has some faint small dark spots but as these were barely visible I settled for it. It seems this model is prone to such defects, so beware. * I reported the above problem to the IPEVO help desk but they didn't even respond to my email - so a big thumbs down to IPEVO customer services (the retailer, however, was very good at arranging a return / replacement, thankfully). * Live motion is noticeably delayed when using the full 5MP resolution. However, most motion display devices (TV, video projector) do not display at 5MP so you can overcome this by selecting a lower resolution when doing live demos and only use the full 5MP resolution when you are capturing stills. * The autofocus function works but can be very slow to respond. Overall: I don't think you can get a computer-controlled true 5 megapixel colour digital camera with autofocus for less money or even similar money. If you think you can - please let me know the details by leaving a comment reply to this review.
