I used default settings. 640x480.

What I like:

+ the small size

+ I have been told picture quality is very good at the other end (I have used it with Skype only)

+ the built in mic - works well, although on some Skype calls, there was feedback from the speakers to the recipient. Mic works well from a distance. Also when the mic is on the Microsoft logo lights up which is a good visual cue.

+ spring loaded camera - when its in, you are guaranteed privace

What I don't like:

- One very annoying negative: this webcam mic has no echo cancellation. after many complaints from people at the other end of the line, I finally disabled the mic in the webcam and now use another mic.

- the spring loaded clip is difficult to adjust and feels like it could break. Having said that it will hold on my beveled edge Dell Inspiron laptop which also has a plastic colour plate

- inability to easily swivel or tilt (you have to do it via the software using combination of zoom, pan and tilt functions)

- when I first installed it, the sound received via Skype was constantly being cut off. I uninstalled the LifeCam software as well as MS Live Messenger, then re-installed LifeCam software only. Works fine now, but not always reliably...

- there is a button on top of the cam which is hard to avoid pressing when you move the camera. This button starts MS Live Messenger if installed and if not then it throws up an annoying window asking you to install Live Messenger. This is very irritating. One should be able to disable the button or re-assign it to another application. Wake up Microsoft....

- the USB cable is too short (about 1.5ft).

I needed to buy a webcam to do videoconferencing with relatives in Italy. I decided to buy a Microsoft product because I could be sure it would be the most conventional, mainstream webcam available. I decided to get this model because it appears to be the top-of-the-line for Microsoft, with a 2 Megapixel video resolution (as well as a 7+ Megapixel still camera built-in).

This particular model is designed to attach to the top of a laptop. It does not fit securely on the top of a flat panel display, but with a little tape it is quite usable. I am very impressed by the quality of the picture, and the ease of use of the hardware and software. What most impressed me however was the noise cancellation done by the software, so that the camera's microphone does not create feedback from the PC's speakers (something that telephones do that most of us just take for granted).

It worked like a charm for our internet videoconference with my in-laws in Italy. Really great. I have already ordered a second one to give as a gift.

Note: this model is really designed to use with a laptop. I had to use tape to attach it to the top of my flat panel display and I had to use a USB extension cord to reach the PC under my desk.

I bought this unit and it works "great". Not good in dim light and no focus adjustment so nothing past 4 feet...

If you want a portable cam with easy setup and great video its for you.

But if you want a cam with more fetures and your not in need of the portability try the Philips 900nc..better unit with more features and killer dim light ability..read my review there for more...

This webcam SEEMS to be the best LAPTOP webcam in the market right now in terms of it megapixels. I believe that it would fit almost all of the laptops because the clip that fits to the laptop adjusts very easily.

I think the only comparable webcams are the ones of Logitech. Although Logitech webcams are not better in terms of megapixels, some webcams of Logitech are far much more expensive than this webcam and Logitech seems to be the leader in this market. Therefore if you want to be 100% sure of the best webcam in the market and if you have the opportunity, for instance if your friend/relative has a hightec webcam of Logitech, go and see it, then make your decision.

With respect to its features, all of them work great. I believe one of the most important issues that a webcam should have is a build-in mic that receives your voice crystal clear. This webcam proves to be so. As far as its image quality, as I indicated above, it is the best webcam in the market BUT bear in mind that during video calls the performance would not exceed a certain limit due to the softwares' (such as MSN, SKYPE) own settings. So do not expect that the receivers will receive your image in 2.0 megapixel quality. On the other hand I believe there is a possibility that the softwares or technology may improve and someday you would be able to use this webcam to the utmost. Nevertheless the receivers tell me that they receive my image really very very well. Also there is a light in the device that blinks when you try to connect to a video call which later stays when such connection is established. The camera seems to track your face. I believe it makes it very well. Nonetheless I do not recommend to move so frequently and avoid sudden movements, which, as far as I see, affects your video call quality.
