The tripod looks and works amazing and its sooo darn cute! The ring light (main reason why I got this particular model) on its max setting is good for up to 3 feet away, any farther and you will need additional lighting. I am using with my Macbook and I am only getting 720p streams where as product description says 1080p. I shall have to check with Windows and update review if I face same issue there. But anyways the picture is clear and it picks up sound also very nicely so now I can just leave my Macbook closed without having to open it again and again for video calls. Overall solid 4 stars!
