5-0 out of 5 stars Also get the SightFlex
If you have an iSight, you might also be interested in the "SightFlex", which is a flexible mount for the iSight and allows you to position it pretty much anywhere you want.It's really nice.It costs $20, but Amazon doesn't sell it.Just do web search for "SightFlex", and you'll find plenty of sellers.

3-0 out of 5 stars 3 star camera, 5 star price
Fuzzy images and feedback.That's not what I expected with the iSight, but it's what I got.After months of holding off, researching and reading reviews, I finally purchased two iSights, the Cadillac of video cams."Like no other camera," the review says.As an avid Mac fan it pains me to say this, but I'd change that to "Like most other cameras."

When we took the iSights out of the box and installed them, my wife and I were very pleased with the ease of instillation.Plug and play.Simple.But there was noticeable microphone feedback on the sound.No problem, I thought--both iSights are in the same room.So the next day I took my powerbook and iSight to work.Same problem: An echoing feedback that you wouldn't expect from even a mediocre microphone. Also, we really had to speak up to be heard.

The other disappointment was with the picture quality.A little on the fuzzy side.Even when you reduce the viewing window, you never get a truly crisp image.Light helps image quality, but even under good lighting conditions the picture is grainy.

I am very pleased with the frame rate, which is snappy. It looks (and is) very real-time.I'm also happy with the size and weight of the iSight, as well as the carrying case that comes with it.And, of course, you can't beat free video conferencing, even if it's not everything you dreamed.

Note:The iSight comes WITH a mount for flat panel and laptop monitors.I've seen several review complaining that they had to buy the accessory kit to mount their iSight.Simply not true if you have a laptop of flat screen monitor.

Also untrue are any posting telling you that you need to purchase a $99 .Mac account to use the iSight.If you have OSX 10.3+ iChatAV is built in and ready to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars simply outstanding
all in all, this is absolutely the best solution i've found for video chat, and i've tried a few web cameras over the years. with its 50mm f2.8 lens my new isight's low light performance is superb. one complaint i've had with webcams from other manufacturers is their contrast in low light situations falls off, and the image picks up a lot of noise. not so with this little gem. it's also light weight, compact, and incredibly simple to use. plug in a single firewire cable and you're done.

what about the built in audio quality? that's right -- no independent mic required! i often video conference for my job and i bought a coworker one of his own. somehow the isight is able to keep two independent streams of audio going (on both sides of the chat) while still suppressing "feedback" loops, or echoing that occurs if ambient sound bleeds across into an incoming stream. even overlapping dialog is handled well. sometimes i'll play music from itunes in the background as we work and my coworker hears it just fine, but my voice still punches through in perfect balance.

apple has done a brilliant job with this camera, on every count, especially given the price. 3 cheers!

3-0 out of 5 stars check the picture
I just got my iSight today and guess what? I need to get the accessory kit to mount it on my flat panel display. If that requirement is in the above verbage I missed it, but the picture shows it happily on the top of the display. I'll add on to this once it's connected ( sitting under the display till UPS brings the accessory kit). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected
It was exactly what I expected. Delivered good quality pictures with good video stream. Makes for a lot of fun time online. And it's quite clear according to the other end. I would recommend this product if you're in the mid price range, it's not too expensive but there are cheaper models. I believe it's well worth the bang for the buck, and I give it a 4 out of 5 because there aren't 4.5s ;)

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent for the money
As a first time webcame user I wasn't sure what to get.I went ahead and got the cheaper Logitech cam because the one that is above this one really isn't that much different.This camera is great for beginners and I've found the quality to be pretty decent.It's very east to use and set up and the bendable stand it has for flat panels and notebooks is very convienent.

1-0 out of 5 stars Deceptive packaging
I was looking for my first webcam and came upon this camera in a store.The front of the package clearly states that it is USB 2.0.A little checking around revealed that this was really not the case, the representative on Logitech's web forum said that it was USB 1.1 but would work on a USB 2 port and that was the reason it was marked as USB 2.Calls to Logitech's customer service and tech support had totally different results, I was assured by both that this was indeed a USB 2 camera.

I finally got down to the bottom of it with further checking with the USB standards organization, USB-IF.The logo on the package indicates that it is a USB 1.1 device, but Logitech has added "USB 2.0" underneath the logo.While one could easily dismiss this as a typographical error, the information that was relayed to me by Logitech on the phone would seem to indicate that there is an intent to deceive and confuse the consumer into believing that this product is a Hi-Speed USB camera when it is not.

I bought this web camera and it works great send email video's sound and picture were great had fun using it, then I went to use my printer and it would not work said it did not reconize my computer so took the camera off and printer worked so then loaded the camera again and still the same thing so cannot use this camera with my printer unless I do not want my printer to work, Could someone who maybe had the same problem help me out.
Thanks so much PAT

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful quality
I ordered this since I am moving away to college in the fall and I got myself the Logitech Notebook Pro which is a thousand times better. The picture quality is ridiculous and whenever I took a picture my computer crashed! I am returning this immediately! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Software Conflict
I purchased the Creative Labs Live Ultra WebCam VF0060 for my home PC. Unfortunatley, it would never give a video picture. I phoned Creative Labs and their Tech. support people indicated a conflict with Haupauge WinTV. The only choice offered was to delete the WinTV software or return the webcam to Amazon. Before I chose to return the webcam, I tried it on my daughters laptop that does not have WinTV loaded. The video and audio feeds where excellent. The moral: If you have WinTV loaded on your computer, this isn't the webcam for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally impressed
I only wanted to spend 50 bucks for a webcam, and I saw this Creative Labs Live! line. I actually intended to buy the regular Live, and not the Ultra, based on what people were saying. When I got to the store, though, all the info people kept raving about was mostly actually details about THIS camera, that they had confused with the more basic version. I haven't used the Live! but I can tell you this is worth the price so it's certainly worth the difference in price.

Not only is it quick and easy to install but the picture quality is great. For some people at high-res video it might be a little grainy (colored noise I mean) but it's nothing you pay attention to. The thing that surprised me is you can EDIT the video with sliders! Color saturation, gamma, contrast, etc... like the basic Photoshop of video, even while the feed is taking place. Comes with a cute headset, plenty of options and file formats. It even looks cool. This feels ritzy to own, but because of how functional it is, and how good it is at doing what it's supposed to. Pleasantly surprised, and glad it worked out this way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Value for money
This twin-camera is real value for money. If you are purchasing these cameras for web-chatting, it is just good. The picture quality is good and it has got an in-built mic!

You will never regret for the price you pay!

1-0 out of 5 stars BuddyCam Gives Logitech a Bad Name
Before you purchase a web cam, check the list of compatible web cams each Instant Messenger recommends to use with their software. [...] Instant Messengers ARE NOT created equally. The BuddyCam had poor video quality; I don't care where you sat it or how many adjustments you made or where you placed the lighting, it looked awful.This product is for children who don't know any better and the price should be about $19.99. Installing the software might be easy provided you do a clean boot install (no running applications and to insure that you need to do "msconfig"). [...] I realize now why my online friends always had something negative to say about their web cams and stopped using them. Thank goodness I bought another model for myself that showed me what quality is. My grandson's Buddy system will be exchanged for the Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Webcam for the Price!
I read the reviews on many other webcams, but this one is the best for the price!I have a desktop with an AMD 750 Mhz Athlon processor, 256MB RAM, and a cable connection, and this product really was simple to set up.In fact, with my Norton Internet Security 2005 firewall, there were no port conflicts or error messages.I only had to authorize Norton to allocate the port to the Logitech Webcam... that simple!With my slower processor, I thought that the video would be slower (15 fps) but after loading the start up software from the CD ROM, I connected the webcam to an open USB port, my XP Professional recognized the camera device, and I was on my way to verify the settings for the microphone volume and audio quality.The Logitech Webcam icon is loaded to your desktop, and all you have to do to start up the camera is to double click the icon, wait for the Logitech popup window, click on the QuickSnap link, and the camera opens a live video window for you to view, film, or capture a snapshot!I have already sent a video clip Christmas greeting to my brother in law in Afghanistan, and to my brother in Texas.CAUTION: Once you load this webcam and mail the other to a buddy, you will not want to stop playing with this tech toy!! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Works, But Not Well
I was given this camera as a gift, so I can't complain, but I haven't been very happy with it. The image is always GREEN, and unless I have a blinding light nearby the image is always DARK. The software has been incredibly buggy and useless, and the hosting site I used was difficult to manage and eventually locked me out for some reason. I wouldn't recommend this webcam to anyone else.

1-0 out of 5 stars S-U-C-K-S!!!
Oh man, what a load of poo this cam is! all the footage it takes has a green tint to it no matter how good the lighting, you literally have to shine it into a bright light to get it to go to a normal tone. the software is horrible. it freezes after about 15 seconds of recording, then you have to shut the program down via Alt+Ctrl+Del and the cams light stays on afterwards. so THEN you have to comPLETELY restart your pc. this happens anytime the cam freezes. this is a COMPLETE waste of money!

1-0 out of 5 stars EZonics worst cam I ever bought
Not only did it not work but it also destroyed my operating system. I have a Windows 98 operating system and I installed the software that comes along with the camera without any instructions and the PC I was using for 5 years, quit loading Windows 98. This is the worst web cam someone ever developed. I bought it thinking it was a good deal in the goldbox offer but it ruined my Operating system.
My recommendation to you is DO NOT BUY THIS USELESS WEBCAM.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ezonics is great
I bought the Ezonics and find the image quality very good.

The lens is a bit "long" for chatting and you always feel like it should be a bit farther.

Build quality is very good.

1-0 out of 5 stars not EZ at all!
I HATE THIS WEBCAM! i bought it and i tried it out, didn't work. Installing the software was easy, when the program starts running, then it's really bad. It freezes up my whole computer. I was only able to get about 30 seconds of activity from it then it froze up.It's absolutely useless. Don't buy this, it's a waste of your money. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Low quality image, but works okay.
I purchased this webcam to play around with, not for anything serious. I use it a little for Yahoo Messenger and also to take quick grabs in Photoshop. The image is small, grainy, and slow to update, but it works just fine for my purposes in Yahoo Messenger, where I'm not going to have a very high quality image anyway. The image looks a lot better if the room is well lit, so it might not be worthwhile if you're trying to use it in a darkened room. Artifacts appear on the image even in good light, but faces are quite recognizable. The software that comes with the webcam is mostly junk that I don't recommend installing, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it supports image captures via the TWAIN interface in Photoshop. The low quality of the images can actually make them fun for some things. The clip that is supposed to secure the webcam is only useful for laptops or thin LCD panels. It won't even come close to fitting my Viewsonic LCD that's about 2-inches thick. That means I have to perch it at the top, which is precarious. The base is weighted slightly, but the webcam has already fallen several times, without apparent harm. The webcam is sort of cute -- looks like a movie robot. It may need to be plugged directly into a USB port or powered hub -- my unpowered hub didn't have enough juice for it. The webcam came with a separate microphone, which I didn't expect. I haven't tried it. Overall, if you want a webcam to use for playing around in a well lit room and don't require a high quality image, this webcam is cheap solution that worked fine for me. The image quality is low, but that's all I needed and all I was willing to pay for. I do wish it had a better base for attaching to thicker perches. Tested with Windows 98SE.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dont waste money
I just bought this item after seeing previous comments. But this camera is aweful. Just waste of money. Produces horrible video 90% not clear. I can't see myself. buy a better product for little extra money. Worst possible picture.
