3.0 out of 5 stars Webcam dissappoints for the price tag, December 23, 2011
By 
This review is from: HP Folio 13 Notebook PC (Personal Computers)
I just unboxed this thing and tested the HP TrueVision HD webcam. Two things will pop at you immediately: shadow effects when you move, noisy pixels which make it look like a webcam from 2004. A couple hours with the tech support, lead to the conclusion that the driver is by Microsoft and not by HP which is probably the reason for it, however the webcam is called HD because it can take images over 640x480 and upto 1280x1024. This argument would work if the images were great but they aren't.

The boot time seemed nice. I haven't timed it yet but it is at the order of 30 secs.

My fingers kept sticking to the trackpad enough to feel irksome and resulting in non-smooth mouse control. The trackpad mouse buttons are quite hard to press and I don't see why something like this couldn't have been fixed by HP.

I will update the review as I learn more. But most likely this thing is going to returns dept.
