      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very ancient concepts like taking snaps, slideshow etc, hanging clip. Stay clear of it.

      When my generic webcam started freezing on Yahoo and Skype, I bought this from local currys store for around £12. I thought that standard branded webcam will work fine with yahoo and skype. But it had similar problems with Yahoo. So, looks like Yahoo Messenger is not very good. So now I stopped using yahoo and use Skype instead.

      The camera itself is not that bad. It is gray/black 2-tone color, with built-in microphone. It also came with mono-headphone which I never used. The microphone quality is not very great, so I use dedicated mic for Skype.

      The bundle software is horrible and heavy weight. It always runs in the background, no matter if webcam is connected or not. Everytime skype looses connection with webcam, the webcam software window pops up in the front. I don't think anyone would be interested in taking grainy pictures with webcam using that software. so 0 marks for the supplied webcam software.

      Another bad thing is the clip. My £4 generic webcam had nice rubber clip, which will help the webcam to sit nicely on my laptop. But clip supplied with quickcam is very ancient and useless. Webcam keeps falling with slightest of movement on the laptop. So it is not suitable for laptops.

      I would not recomment this quickcam to anyone.
