I use this webcam attached to my home tower PC mainly for a chat with my friends who live in Seattle.
The reason why I purchased this webcam was value for Money and apparent easy of installing being plug and play.
The most important point is video and audio quality, which has surpassed my expectations. There is nothing like having a conversation with family from across the ocean and not paying for the privilege.
The hardware appears well built and has taken many knocks, as it's fallen off the desk or been knocked on the floor. However the webcam keeps working which is truly amazing as we have a number of children, and they like playing with anything that has a cable attached to it
Generally I have found the webcam to be very acceptable even with a 2 meg standard BT line that is not the most reliable.
Any visual issues are usually down to buffering and not the quality of the hardware.
Installation was easy I just installed the hardware to a free USB port and Windows recognised the device and installed the files without issue or using the supplied Installation CD.
We love how this webcam has really made a difference to keeping in touch with friends and family overseas and I have found that our phone bill have definitely reduced since using this fab bit of kit.
I spend about 20 pounds about six months or so ago which I think is very good value, however you might be able to pick something up for a few pounds more that has better specs.
I would recommend this webcam because in my experience it offers great value for money and allows my family to keep in touch with others by talking but also sharing video.
If you are looking to replace or purchase a webcam this is definite a contender as it ticks all the boxes for my family.
You can chat with your family, friends and acquaintances across the world or create and send videos by e-mail. Even when you want to monitor certain rooms via the Internet, Sweex has a webcam to match.
