The webcam shows up in Device Manager as working properly.
The camera is set up to all all apps to access it.
The microphone is set up properly.
Open any app an NOTHING. No image, no sound.
I feel like I have been completely ripped off. I get that it was only 18 bucks, but
That being said, I really like it. The stand contorts to many positions for ease of use. Clip it to your laptop, stand-alone monitor, or curl it under so it can stand alone. The microphone works fantastically, which was one of my big worries. Not having a good stand-alone mic because most built-in mics tend to be really crappy. Not this one. It picks up everything you say with minimal background interference.
The cam quality itself is what wowed me. Granted, it likes to auto-focus quite a bit if you have a high light source behind you (Including sunny windows) BUT the precise focus is fantastic. Some smaller things may take a second (like displaying items on cam) but as long as you create it so you're the center of focus with lighting and positioning, it will hold perfectly on you or that item with HD quality. I really love this cam. It's not the absolute best, but it's the best for it's price range.
-It was a good price (some $22 dollars for me, easily worth more)
-Great high quality video. Possibly better than my midrange ($40) Logitech with a slightly bulkier round camera was.
-Good microphone [better than my internal]
-Plug and play [after windows found drivers]
-It has blurry tracking (worse than the logitech I had before)
-It has weird autofocus (worse than the logitech I had before)
Great Camera. Possibly best camera for <$30. Overall for *MY* purposes I'm not sure how I feel about it, I suppose the benefits (even better quality) are even with the cons (reduced tracking and autofocus). It's much better than the average $20 dollar cam you'll find though [and on par with quality $50 cameras]. One thing I would consider is the quality of your internet. If you have slow internet, you will not be able to make use of the high quality capture (in video calls), but you will still be affected by the *slightly* delayed/blurry tracking and the funky autofocus (it occasionally becomes blurry as it unnecessarily autofocuses).
*Final note on the form factor*: The camera itself comes in a very nice form factor. I thought it would be bulky, but it's in fact smaller than my last webcam and a nicer shape (rounded rectangle-square). The way it attaches to monitors and screens was also better, and had a nice weighted mechanism more than a 'latch'. I would have liked if the mount folded up in a better way (taking up less space) or was detachable.
I know many people in the computer repair business and had a close friend suggest I purchase a microsoft lifecam hd5000 720p HD webcam.As soon as the cam arrived I plugged it in and barely got through the cd installer before it saw the cam and had it up running on my screen.The software and everything runs perfect and it has some very great quality features.IF YOUR RUNNING WINDOWS 7 64 bit or 32 bit this cam will not let you down.Its excellent and top quality.
STAY AWAY FROM LOGITECH WEB CAMS!! THEY ARE A RIP OFF AND NEVER INSTALL OR RUN PROPERLY!! THEIR TECH SUPPORT SUCKS AND THEY HONESTLY DO NOTHING TO HELP YOU BUT TELL YOU TO KEEP TRYING TO REINSTALL.i WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER LOGITECH PRODUCT AGAIN AFTER WHAT I WAS PUT THROUGH WITH THEIR SUPPORT DEPT.
