Pros: compact size, low price, easy setup.
Cons: I have not found any yet.
Owning both a desktop, laptop, and tablet, I began to realize that most of my computing time was spent on the desktop where my work is most productive with a full-sized mouse and keyboard along with a nice display.
The only obstacle with using a desktop was the limit from the inability to video call.
As an avid Google Hangouts/Skype user, I always found myself going to my laptop to video call, until this handy little webcam came along.
Now for roughly $20 (the price at 5/29/2013), the value was hard to beat. It definitely looked more sleek and stylish than those $4 ebay knockoffs and it served its purpose well.
It sits right on top of your monitor and has a hinge design, which allows it to rest on top of it. As long as you have a LCD monitor, you should be fine since the hinge adjusts to fit monitors up to about 2 inches (~5cm) thick.
The image quality isn't anything amazing, but it definitely beat both my tablet, smartphone, and laptop image qualities.
If you're looking to do any serious HD video chatting, this webcam is not for you. It won't make everything super sharp and clear but the quality definitely beats any built-in webcams on laptops that I've used.
In terms on the microphone, it picks up voice fairly well. I have not tested this in a loud environment. I did notice that the further you are from the webcam, the amount of voice the microphone built in to the webcam decreased substantially, so take note of that.
Otherwise, this webcam is sleek, stylish and fits well into most setups and for a $20 accessory, I would highly recommend it for anybody who just wants to sit down for a nice video calling session.
Oh yeah, and heaven help you if you need to download software drivers or anything else from the creative site, because it will take hours even with a high speed internet connection. There's no install disk with the box and their website is horrible at serving up files- it takes several hours for a single tiny driver file to transfer. Which means that if you experience any trouble that you even think is related to drivers OR you'd like the software that is meant to make use of the hardware, you will be spending a lot of time waiting for a download.
I know there isn't a lot of good quality electronics on the market that's affordable to most people these days, but this price is way too steep for what you get. Assuming your unit works out of the box, the build quality of the internals is very low so I wouldn't count on it lasting very long; if you have any software issues it'll waste hours of download time plus the time to find what you need, and on top of everything else you're not going to get a video feed off of it that's anywhere near a good low resolution quality (forget HD). All of which means that this cheap deal isn't really worth the asking price.
UPDATE: The drivers act like a virus, very hard to uninstall because the product registering thing kept popping up every time I exited, and I had to find a backdoor to get rid of it which took half an hour of fighting it. Heed my words, FIND A BETTER WEBCAM.

Side note - the packaging it came in, the box was beaten up, and in general the packaging was total s***, but the product works great and I have no complains - plug n play as it says
It also works which was the most important thing.
