Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Although the holding bracket works, it appears to require a look into the design.the camarait operates on my sysystem, it took a very long time initially downloading from the CD disc, and doesn't always like operating if I've just opened my Broardband account, but this may be bad transmitted speed. For its cost the results are quite spectacular, sharp picture
