Quality camera with great features,
This review is from: Creative Live Cam Socialize HD 720P Webcam (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First off, let me say I have used many webcams over the years, and this one would be my 5th one I've owned.
Currently I own Logitech's flagship Orbit AF webcam, which is a superb camera in terms of video quality. Knowing that, I could have gone with the Logitech WebCam Pro 9000, but I didn't want to spend $99 for a secondary camera. I wanted to spend as little as possible and still have a camera good enough for low light.
After having test driven three other cheaper models which I bought and returned from Fry's, I fortunately had to opportunity to get this one on Amazon Vine. While I have to admit the video quality isn't as crisp as good as my Logitech, it's still heads and shoulders above the sub $50 cameras that I tried. It is sensitive enough to be adequate for low light environments like my office at work, which was the most important feature in a webcam. The software package is decent, comparable to Logitech's.
In the webcam department, you really do get what you pay for. If you absolutely must have the best video quality, I recommend the Logitech Orbit AF or Webcam 9000 that use Carl Zeiss lenses. But if you want a decent compromise, this one isn't bad.

I have had this Creative Socialize camera since March, 2011 and have yet to be able to get a picture from it. I have downloaded it from the website, downloaded from the disc and still nothing but an error comes up. This is annoying and frustrating. I plan to contact the company to see if they can help me, if not, it will be going back to them by the end of this week. I cannot put up with this frustrating camera any longer. I had a Logitech and it was great. I just may go back to it if I cannot get help with this one. L.S.
