Confirmed purchaser Nothing

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to instal. I know very little about computers but was "up and running" within five minutes.
Bad points:
Probably not the fault of the product, but image can be very poor at times. I suspect this is because I live a few miles from the nearest telephone exchange and my broadband can be very slow.

Audrey, Basildon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Buying this camera has made a huge difference to my video calls with my family in U.S.
They no longer look fuzzy, and they say they can see me much better. In fact my son pointed out he could
see a childhood framed photograph of himself placed on a cabinet behind me when speaking with him.
So, as I have already said nine out of ten.

Dave, Liverpool Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Looks smart, Featrures are OK for price. This camera is OK for basic conferencing if you can put up with the poor sound range on its buit in microphone.
Bad points:
No movement detection software available for this camera. Video can be slow, dark and jittery at times. I found this out after being on the recieving end of this camera as I have a built in one on my Laptop. Quality is Ok but not the best for price. I have now upgraded to a more expensive model and this proves that you get what you pay for.
