There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That was on 4/10. It was scheduled for delivery on 4/15, but I actually received it on Easter Sunday 4/12. So I give the seller high marks for promptness both in answering my question and shipping the product.
Now for the camera. It comes in 3 pieces. The camera / microphone unit comes attached to a flexible gooseneck that's about a foot long. The gooseneck plugs into a plastic base. Then the base plugs into the computer via the included cable (approximately 6 feet long.) Some reviewers claim the the attachments are not secure, that they come loose easily. I have not found that to be the case. Some also report that the base is too light, so the camera tips over easily. That may be when you bend the gooseneck down to shoot documents, but it is plenty stable for my purpose, since I will always use it with the gooseneck straight up.
I don't know why some reviewers said they had problems with installation. All I can figure is that they're referring to the software, not the camera itself. The camera is simply plug and play - at least with Windows 10.
The camera's image quality is excellent. The webcam built into my wife's laptop is ok when viewing a small image, but it becomes quite grainy when viewing full screen. Not so with this webcam. When I view the image full screen on my 32" monitor, there's just a bit of graininess, not objectionable. And the microphone works great. When I tried the camera out in our small group Zoom meeting, everyone was having problems hearing me, but my issue was not having Zoom set right. When I fixed that, they said that they could hear me clearly.
All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
The stant connects to the computer via USB cable. This connection is fine. The camera connects to the stand via USB socket, which is so CHEAPLY manufactured that the camera WOBBLES in the stand, disconnects from the USB hub, causes the software to freeze - after wobbling the camera to get it to reconnect to the USB hub, you have to restart the software to get any use from it.
Somebody threw out the packaging for the product, or I would return it - they've got my money, don't let them SUCKER you out of yours!!!

On the website it seems to be higher then it is, but with four paperbacks underneath I can show a full page.
In an advertisement elsewhere the camera was announced as 1920x1080, but in Amazon the correct resolution is stated: 1280x720, and that's enough for a good image on the screen.
I didn't test the sound quality, because I already have a good external Mic.
I don't recognize any of the criticism in the other reviews. The camera fits well in the base and in win10 the camera was recognized immediately.
The camera doesn't come with software. No problem: I use the free program: YAWCAM. It's simple, but it shows the camera image on the screen (upside down if I want) and that's all I need.
I recommend this camera to everyone and especially to all my colleague teachers.
It was worth the money, but I should have gone for a higher spec.
I didn't test the sound quality at all.
Look for the frame rate; 60 fps is the best standard, this one (Like all of them under £100) only has 30fps
If you want a camera to chat with your friends this is the one, if you want to look professional you need to spend professional money.
Estoy muy contenta con la compro, la recomiendo
