Great for the price – Cannon Style Driveless 1.3MP HD Webcam with Built-in Microphone - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works perfectly out of the box on both of my XP SP3 machines. Stays recognized when continuously plugged in, making it a suitable gift for my very non-tech-savvy in-laws. Allows us to have regular video chats with them so they can see their grandson.
Cons:
Doesn't seem to adjust well to lighting. There's a sweet sopt where the quality is the best -- below that, it gets very grainy, and above that everything light-coloured, such as people's faces, becomes washed out and lacks detail.
Other:
The stand it's attached to is a little odd. Seems to work best for a laptop. Doesn't stand on a flat surface particularly well, and isn't really designed to.
Bottomline:
For the price it's a very handy little cam, great for chat and other basic activities. Would buy again.
