My quick impressions -- more details to follow with an edit, when I've had more experience with it.

I've only had time to set it up, install the firmware, verify the software works, and perform a test call with the Skype test call feature.

Installation is quick and easy. The unit has a magnetic clamp-style bracket that allows you to secure it on top of the television. It occupies one of the USB ports. Unfortunately, once it's clamped, the camera can only be aimed in a single direction: up. This is a fundamental flaw of the mounting hardware. I have a 47LE8500, setup on a stand such that the middle of the screen is at my eye level from a seated position about 6-7ft from the screen. With the camera mounted on top of the HDTV, I can barely see the top of my head. There is no zoom capability. At the maximum declination of the camera, when mounted on top of the TV, I have to be standing straight, approximately 3-4 feet from the screen to get a full headshot in the webcams view. If I mount the camera below the TV, there's more flexibility, but the clamp/mounting bracket isn't well designed to have the camera free-standing on a flat, horizontal surface. It's really designed to be clamped to a vertical plane/top of the HDTV.

The Skype application is functional and is a good melding of the UI design of Skype and the other LG NetCast applications. You can set it up to login when you launch the Skype application. It has a video test feature that allows you to view the output from the camera, change various lighting, color, and other settings. The default settings resulted in an image that was a little harsh given the lighting conditions under which I used it last: night-time, ~400 sqft. room, single lighting source at same plane as TV/camera. Resolution was typical for skype...

Okay, I will admit it, based on the only other review I was a little bit worried about the purchase of this camera, but since it was designed for my LG LED TV, I decided to give it a try. Here is my review:

Out of the Box - Packaging was excellent and everything that was promised was in the box and well protected. Since we are a military family and have experienced a lot of moves, I decided to put the box in the attic for a future move.

Set-Up - I mounted this on a LED TV that is very thin. The TV itself is a 55" LG mounted on the wall 4' above floor level. That put the camera at about 7' or so. the magnetic clamp worked flawlessly and with a little adjust of the mounting bracket, I was able to get it to aim down at the correct angle to hit the family of four in view while sitting on the couch or standing in front of the couch (important to allow the kids to show off for the grandparents!). The cable plugged into one of the two USB ports on the side with the LG N dongle in the other USB port.

NOTE - I know that other reviews have complained about the mounting hardware. I had no issues getting it aimed where I wanted to aim it. Yes, LG could have done a better job with the mount design, but it is adequate. I deducted 1/4 stars, but buyers should not have a problem with getting it where they want it.

Software - It took a bit to get the television to load the new BIOS to support the Skype features (so I deducted a 1/4 Star). At first I did not think it was working, but the next day when I turned the television back on, it loaded the correct BIOS. I talked to LG about this and they admitted that they were having a problem and had released a new BIOS update. Since then, no issues.

I purchased AN-VC300 from eBuyNow on 12/18/11. Installation was supper easy. Sound is good no complains. One big problem I noticed is that according to spec video resolution should be HD (1280x720) in fact it is not. Maybe 375 lines or less per frame. I compared quality of video from AN-VC300 and from Microsoft HD webcam (purchased for $50 few years ago). Comparison was done on LG TV model LW6500, where I had two equal size frames on TV screen next to each other. Low resolution from AN-VC300 was obvious. I called LG Customer support for help and they recommended to send back for replacement. Now I am working with eBuyNow to get replacement and ask them to test webcam before they ship otherwise I would like to get refund. Hope this is just one defective webcam.

This is a discontinued model but was the one I needed for my LG model TV. Brand new in box and was recognized right away and worked perfectly when used to Skype with my grandson. Very pleased.

This item was purchased for use with a 55" LG LED HDTV with built in skype capability. My wife is from Latvia and uses skype to call family and friends regularly. The best feature with this set up is the ability to zoom in and out. With the TV mounted above the corner fireplace, in normal 1x view they can see us in the front room, dining room and kitchen (open floor plan), but for closeups it can be zoomed in 2x, 3x, and 4x. 4x mode is a close up even with the sofa mounted 13 feet away from the TV. With four microphones, no matter taking english, latvian or german, family memebers have no difficulty hearing the conversation.
