third party software bundle rquires two resident programs sitting in you memory (it will get during installation into your system registry and load every time you start your PC) they say it's free of charge but as you know there is only free cheese in mousetrap.

major cons is not existing autofocus. tiny focus adjusting ring is awkward to operate and at the end you still can't quite put it in sharp focus.

cable is like 1.5 ft long. i guess it's ok for laptop but if you wanna use it for something else - just forget it, clip is also good for laptop screen only and not for anything else.

automatic light adustement is just plain sucks. manual is a bit better but if you have to re-adjusted evry time you wanna use your webcam it becomes pain in the a**.

i have two a4tech cheapper webcams without any third party useless software and with autofocus and they are way better than creative. SHAME ON YOU CREATIVE! i thought you could do better!

It's small and the picture quality is ok. One main problem is the video lag, but that might be with all 15 fps cameras. I hate the fact that it needs all this installation software though. It should just plugin and work, especially with Vista. Bundled software and unnecessarily complicated drivers annoy me. Also the clip is too small, I have a thinkpad t60 and it's not big enough to fit over the top edge. I'm going to return it.

I got a Creative Labs Live! Cam Notebook Pro. I was amazed by how terrible it was and I returned it.

The camera can't handle high light (like outdoors or bright indoor light) and it can't handle low light (like just light from the screen). It also has far too little dynamic range, so either the image has to be too dark or the bright parts have to wash out. The automatic exposure and white balance ends up with wildly different and ridiculous settings on different occasions for no apparent reason whatsoever. The video displays a lot of blocky artifacts, as if it's highly compressed, probably because despite mentioning USB 2 it is not a high speed device. It was able to get a good image sometimes, like when there's a stationary scene with uniform subdued lighting, but performance is generally unacceptable.

My favourite thing about the cam was its impressively small size. I also liked VideoFX although it had incompatibility issues and the effects where I'm supposed to appear in front of a different background didn't work.

Overall, this webcam is so horrible that it's not even worth it when steeply discounted, and it seriously hurts my perception of the Creative Labs brand.

I just bought this video cam. Very easy to set up. Importantly for me, this Creative cam works fine with Yahoo Messenger.

On the downside, wish it was auto focus, but manual focus probably has some advantages that I'll figure out along the way.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The main reason I went with Creative rather than Logitech or Microsoft is that my company owned work computer does not have SP2 (and the network administrator will not allow it to be installed) which appears to be required for all Logitech and Microsoft cams.

I love the picture quality. It's quite clear and sharp - better than more expensive webcams that I have seen. It isn't fuzzy in the slightest. However, when using it over the internet (as most folks do with webcams), the lag is rather bad. If you speak, for example, you'll see your lips move a good 30 seconds to a minute or so later. Though, it does come with this spiffy "Orb" feature. You can quite easily set it up so that you can see pictures on your webcam from any internet connected computer at any time, or set it to alert you via email if anything moves in the room it's in. Also, the little clip holds the webcam on a laptop quite securely, and though it doesn't turn left or right, you can easily place it left or right on the laptop. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it.

I had another webcam from creative and that was awesome but even though this one is costlier I dont like the quality of this webcam. It doesnt adjust to different light conditions automatically and you have to open the software center and then manually adjust the brightness everytime u have little changes in the light conditions.
