  • 300 kpixel !!!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * decent build quality
    * somehow it works !?!
    * tested ok on Vista x64 (Windows own driver and CD provided driver), Win XP SP3 (Windows own driver) and Linux Fedora Core 9 Sulphur
    * first you rotate the knob to obtain clarity,
    * zoom button to software zoom 4 steps

    Cons:

    * not 2.0MP!!! but only 0.3 MP
    * on package box - "Up to 2.0MP"! True! 300kP!!!
    * not 1600x1200, but only VGA 640x480 resolution
    * 1600x1200 resolution achieved only by software scaling using the driver provided in the CD

    OtherThoughts:

    I knew that 1.3 MP were in fact 300 kP cameras software scalled. I hoped that the 2.0 MP camera to be at least 1.3! False! 300 kP!!! Payed 10$ extra for noting!
    Even if they would put a 2.0 MP sensor, no image improvement would be noticed, due to build and lens quality. It would be impossible to focus it with this gross adjustment they provide.

    Bottomline:

    Don't throw away your money! Buy the cheapest! It will do the job just fine!
