Confirmed purchaser Web cam noob

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Microsoft build quality, excellent sound pick up.
Bad points:
Had to copy dvd to hard drive before I could install it. Once copied, install took over 30 mins as updates are downloaded as part of the process. Has very high real world hardware requirements for a web cam. Can be quite laggy on slower PCs. Would not recommend as a cheap alternative would probably be easier to install and run better.

Jim, Aberdeen Disenchanted Microsoft user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Picture quality and build
Bad points:
As with so many Microsoft products, it takes over the machine. Constant pop-up windows on start-up (I do not want to have to unplug it all the time) Hate it. Has tipped the balance for me to buy a Mac which I now have and is far less intrusive.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Most things about it are good.
Bad points:
I bought 2. One wouldn't install but that could well be a problem with the computer rather than the camera.
