I bought this camera to replace a Logitech QuickCam Fusion. I'd been having problems with Skype, all of which seemed related to the Fusion.

This camera's image in significantly better than the Fusion's in my (not so great) office lighting. That's quite an accomplishment, considering the Fusion is a current product and sells for three times the price of this camera. I recommend it particularly for those who want to video-chat with their away-from-home kids. It's inexpensive enough to buy one for each.

I'm new to webcams and have found it both easy and enjoyable to use the VX1000. It installed quickly without disruption to my laptop, provides clear images, and decent audio quality. Perhaps users who are more tech minded might prefer something more elaborate, but this works well for me. Good price too.

We are moving across country, so I bought this video camera as a gift for my father so that we can stay in touch through Skype. I had it shipped directly to him and told him to give me a call when it arrived so I could help him set it up.

After it arrived, he called and said he had it ready to go - it was that easy to set up. We connected via Skype and everything worked great. I'm running a MacBook Pro with a built-in camera, so the video isn't as great as what I'm used to seeing but for the price, it deserves five stars.

Very easy to install, the connection is reasonably easy to make with another unit. The video quality is ok, but not like you're watching TV, for sure. A unit that follows your head as it moves might be a better choice for heavy users. But so far I'm very pleased.

I ordered this cam a week ago,ive used it 2 days now, and i am happy with it. the only thing is that, if you have the new window's vista, the cd that comes with the cam, dosent work. you have to go directly to microsoft's website, and download the software. the cam arrived earlier than they said it would. the company was very good at sending quickly. the cam show's very clear. this is the best cam i've owned. i found this cam on this site for $14.99 in new condition, you cant beat that! i would recommend this product to other's who are looking for a good quality cam,and dont want to spend alot of money.

I have this webcam and it's great, the only downside is the lighting it's too dark but with a lamp it's perfect. If you move fast it doesn't blur,if you know nothing of technology it's easy to use, the sound is really good and the price is perfect. I didn't want to spend to much money but I wanted a good camera,I did all searches and read all the reviews and this was the perfect 1 for the price. But don't get the microsoftVX3000, just because it's more money doesn't always mean it's better it's the same thing as this one but if you want a great camera and the price doesn't matter then go with the Microsoft VX6000. Don't pay more then $30 for this camera.
