5.0 out of 5 stars Works nicely on Windows 7, May 29, 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: PlayStation Eye (Video Game)
too bad this is only 480 P, and initially I was going to hold out and wait to purchase the PlayStation 4 camera to use it on my PC, but I read that it's not a USB camera and has some sort of proprietary connection not compatible with PC. So I might as well have just gotten this one now, which I did. And actually came with the move controller as a bundle.

This is a nice little camera that you can use as a WebCam as well as a nice recording microphone on your PC. On Windows 7 I haven't figured out how to adjust the level setting to increase the microphone gain so I have to be very close when speaking into it. But the recording quality is superb and records at 48 and 16 bit CD-quality. Just plug it in USB style.

For WebCam some people recommend CLI drivers, but for me the uncompressed recording video is costing me too much hard drive space and I haven't been able to figure out how to get MPEG conversion working. If someone figures this out please let me know. Some of the software I downloaded does indeed work with his WebCam and FLV or MP4 or MPEG conversion, but they came with extra bloatware that was very annoying and hard to uninstall.

Surprisingly it also works quite well as a microphone with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I'm using version 12 premium and dictation has been very accurate so far. When I play back my dictation it is noise free, but you must also take into consideration that I'm in a noise free room) my bedroom). If this was a busy office where my neighbors were mowing lawns and I had my windows open, I'm pretty sure my recording quality would suffer a lot because I don't think there is a hardware noise canceling element on this microphone.

It is however in array microphone with four individual microphone elements so if someone is able to get the noise canceling working, I bet it would work really really well with this microphone.
