Excellent

Great value and great product

Can't really fault it!

Iv'e had this cam for 9 months now, and to be quite honest i can't really fault it. The cam has a good resolution (640 x 480) so if you use it on msn messenger, you dont appear really fuzzy to the other person. Built in microphone so you can chat to other people instead of typing. It has a clever...

Clear pictures, all angle rotation, stylish

none

This is one of the best web cams i have purchased. The pictures are really clear no matter what lighting i am using. The simple click switch on the top makes it easy to get into video calling which i really couldn't live without. Not too bulky it fits nicely on top of any slimline monitor. or can...

Works on Vista, Good clarity

Driver disc supplied wont run under Vista

My only piece of non Dell PC kit. This webcam is excellent for the price, good picture quality and the built in Mic is responsive. Brilliant for all Instant messengers and VOIP. It is also nice to have a black webcam. I know that sounds silly but most PC's these days have black on them some where...

Super

price, Flexible stand, simplicity, ease of setup

The manual zoom can be a little fiddly

When people mention the word Microsoft it's often followed by "what a load of rubbish!" but i'm happy to say i'm pleased with this little camera. It is basic and for the price you can't expect any different but it is great for anyone wanting to chat on camera especially children as it's not going...

Excellent picture, brilliant extras, cheap

None so far

I recently purchased one of these fantastic web cams from pc world for the price of 14.99. I have got to say that this is a brilliant webcam for the money. I have been use to using an old logitech webcam which doesnt even compare to this. Not only has the camera got outstanding picture quality...

“Overall good for the price”

Good for money, Built in microphone

None that I know of

Well, there is a microphone built. the picture quality is decent, you may have to fiddle with the focus a bit and mess around with the settings but after that it is a very good camera for the price. Leaving out the price I would give it a 3 star out of 5, because I haven't had any problems with...
