-Not an HD webcam
-Make sure your computer has a microphone (very few don't, but this webcam doesn't come with a microphone)
+Great in low light
+Easy to use light intensity switch on the cord
+Lightweight and portable, HOWEVER
-Design flaw in that it doesn't fold flat, so I predict this won't take too many bangs in my bag before it breaks at the "neck" area
-You'll get sun spots staring into the camera, because of all the LED lights (I had wrongly assumed they would be infrared
-A longer cord would be desirable, but it isn't necessary for most people

Previously, I'd said some incorrect things, and now I've completely disassembled the product to figure it all out.
Before, I (incorrectly) said that this thing didn't have LEDs, just 6 plastic domes with a light underneath. That was because, looking into the domes, I could barely see the light, unless it was pointed directly at my eye. Well, that's just how LEDs work, especially bright white ones. Highly concentrated beam at the center. It gave off the illusion of a single light mounted under the bubbles, and the bubbles just focused the light forward. That was my mistake.
This is not a "night vision" camera, unless "night vision" means "can see in the dark, because it has 6 bright LEDs attached to it". The LEDs are all within the visible spectrum of light, and the lens has an IR filter on it, so even if they were IR LEDs... it wouldn't do any good with that IR filter in place. Again, this is NOT an infra-red / night-vision camera.
There's a dial on the cable, to adjust the brightness of the LEDs... however, instead of getting gradually brighter or darker, it's either "off" for 90% of the dial positions, or "on" for the top 10% of the dial. (That is, if it was a volume dial, 1-9 are "off" and 10 is "on, full power"). Maybe mine is just faulty.
The stand is ever-so-slightly sticky on the bottom, to kind-of hold it in place, but the weight of the cable on the back still easily pulls the camera down, so it's constantly falling. I stuck on silly putty on the bottom, and that was the end of that problem.
The stand also unfolds, and as someone says in the comments, the purpose of that is to clip it to a laptop or whatever you feel like clipping it to.
The camera is plug-and-play, installing the drivers automatically.Read more ›
