I am amazed at how bad this camera is. It is almost twice the price as the Creative Live! Cam Chat HD, and the image is a good deal poorer than the Chat. While it doesn't show very much in the still images, when watching a live video the image is very grainy, even in good room lighting.
The stand is fairly well designed to sit on a desktop or on the edge of a monitor, however, the camera is light enough that it is difficult to keep it pointed where you want it. The cord is a bit too stiff and tends to cause the camera to move away from where you point it.
During the testing, I have noticed this camera has some difficulty in maintaining focus. During my test shots, under florescent light, the camera was unable to obtain proper focus even over a period of 30 seconds, so as you will see, the florescent test is fuzzy.
There is not much good I can say for this camera. In general, I would avoid this model and go with the Chat HD listed above.
