It's not high resolution, but it's great quality anyway.

It's virtually no set up, just plug it into your USB port and go! You may have to restart your computer with it plugged in if it doesn't work the first time.

No, there's no mic attached, but it's a $10 digital camera and most laptops have mics built in (like mine) so I didn't worry about it.

The light brightness is adjustable with a little knob on the cord (like those old-fashioned lights with the rotating on/off switch)

The lights are the perfect color to convey a real color image.

I live hundreds of miles from friends and family and I'll soon be living thousands of miles away, it's great to keep in touch!

For $10, you won't find better!

I'm a old and frequent customer of Amazon.com but am very disappointed with this transaction.

This camera came with a micro dvd and no instructions. There is no Mfg. p/n or model number on the camera or the dvd.

Plug and play did not work. I tried multible times to load the software and drivers and was unable to make it work.

I have extensive experience with computers and this episode has gotten me totally disgusted.

I bought 2 of these cameras for family, so we could keep in touch (using skype)while I am abroad. The camera's add states it's perfect for video conferencing and skype, so I guess it is my fault that I interpreted his to mean that it had a mic, that you could hear the person using it, NOPE. Very disappointing. The people I gave it to say the lights on it are too bright and blind them, and I have noticed the poor picture quality. Not impressed.

This is a low quality camera that cannot keep up with even the slowest movements. It works right out of the "bag" and the lights are bright. Those two things are they only positive things about this camera. It amuses me that some people say this camera has a Mic included let me set the record straight IT DOES NOT! I have used this camera on Skype and AIM and at the end of the day it is just not worth the money. Please do not buy this camera as there are better cameras out there. I am using the old xbox live vision camera in place of this one. If you have used that camera before you will know that is saying a lot.

I was looking for a camera with infrared sensitivity in order to check to see how IR light lasers were working. There are lots of things that can do this. Kids Nightvision toys, Security cams, Baby monitors, stuff like that In fact, video camera makers have to take special effort to keep their product. They have to make it more expensive to build. Because the electronic element that detects the light does not care if some photon is visible spectrum or infra-red. All it cares about is 'got photons!'

So when I see a camera surrounded by clear lens LEDs, I think its like many other IR devices out there. Especially when the product name has the words NIGHT and VISION in the title. I thought "Those are IR LEDs, and its been left IR sensitive." Because who wants to skype with a flashlight shining in their eyes?

WRONG. They are white LEDs (and if memory serves, white light LEDs cost more than IR LEDs), and you ARE supposed to skype with a flashlight shining on your face. But at least they do give you a knob to adjust the intensity of said light.

Anyway, if it is an IR camera you are looking for, you CAN make do with this. Unscrew the lens. On the back is a small square filter plate welded to the lens stack with small plastic blobs. Slice off the welds with an xacto knife, flick off the filter and throw it away. Your camera now sees IR light clearly.

You are still stuck with white light LEDs if you want to use the LEDs though.

And while you do get OK video from the device, if the thrill of your skyping in the dark experience might be affected by a substantial fraction of a second video delay, this may not be the product for you.

The camera comes in a box. No instructions, no notes on how to install, no directions, no hint of a web site to go to for help.
Doesn't work at all with XP, barely works with Vista.
Seller says it should start up automatically when installed. It doesn't.

PROs:
- You are paying $5 for a web cam with mediocre visual quality.
- It has LED lights that you can manually control to brighten up the area in front of camera.
- Windows 7 plug and play. I plugged it in and it downloaded the drivers and was working in about 15 seconds.
- Works great for Google Hangouts, Skype, etc. Just don't expect to be able to see the person you are talking to's acne scars.
- Did I mention it was cheap?

CONs:
- The quality is a little crappy, but it works just fine.
- No mic. The description says nothing about including a mic, so why are people complaining? As a colleague of mine says, RTFD. Read The Description.
- Fairly short USB cable. I suppose an extension cable could work for you.
- Has a circular base and frame making it nearly impossible to mount on anything. I rigged it with a rubberband on my monitor stand. I'll post a picture.
