Julie, Trowbridge

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Neat little webcam with built in mic which records very good quality sound and camera produces a flawless image. Good back light and natural colours.
I was very impressed with both the video and audio quality on Skype with this webcam. Also good with Facebook & Yahoo Messenger. Great little camera for the price
Bad points:
It took an usually long time to install the software. At times the install window disappeared completely, and I was not sure whether it crashed or what it was doing. Left it installing for a couple of hours and when I returned to PC it had loaded fine.

Good points:
Small and compact.Good price and does the job well.
Bad points:
Could do with a rubber pad on the bottom to hold it more securely but a bit of blue tack does just as well.
