Live! Cam-inPerson HD Webcam
I have a Live! Cam InPerson HD Skype HD Webcam. I haven't had it long, but it is certainly an improvement on my older Logitech Webcam, which used to freeze intermittently.
I have friends and family that live in various locations across the country and abroad.
We all use Skype to keep in contact and there is nothing more frustrating than disruption to your communication, be it with you sound or video stream.
I decided to buy this webcam because first and foremost it is Skype certified. I also have High Definition TV and love the quality, so my replacement webcam had to be HD.
According to my friends and family, with other webcams I have used, when I move too quickly, the video footage at their end freezes.
It then jumps forward, and they didn't see what I was going fully. This disrupts the flow of the conversation and action, which I found very frustrating!
The other requirement was to minimize the disruption to sound. This webcam has 4 inbuilt microphones, ensuring sound the quality.
It also comes with something called Live! Central 3 Software with all sorts of features, although I must admit I haven't used any of these 'gimmicks'.
This webcam is easy to connect. I think you need a fairly modern computer. It plugs into a USB port, ask for the drivers that comes with the CD, and away you go.
I didn't even have to refer to the quick start leaflet that it come with.
The webcam cost around $189, which for the quality and frequency I use, it is money well spent.
I do not have any complaints about my Creative Labs product. I have had nothing but good experiences. I would certainly advise others to look towards Creative Labs for their products too.
