Jeffrey, South Africa. 16 April 2015

Decent 1280x720 picture. I'm using it as a security camera. Works on Linux (Ubuntu), too. Got it on a 5m passive USB extension cable, and it runs just fine.

Jade, South Africa. 13 August 2015

Its a good camera but my only two issues with the product are that there is MS provided software available but you have to find it yourself online and the image quality could be better. Even at 720p I find that there is a constant "fuzziness" with the image.

For the price one cant complain, its not a bad deal at all.

kasturi, South Africa. 19 May 2015

This cam is the most value for money i have gotten in a long time seeing that its way more expensive on other sites and it the same product i really do ALL my business and personal shopping here and have not been disappointed ever. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

Patric, South Africa. 13 June 2016

Quick and easy to install, quality is great. Camera swivels horizontally but not vertically - vertical position is adjusted by bending the flexible foot. It would have been nice to anchor the foot completely and adjust position by swivelling the head. Other than that small thing, no complaints.

Gerhard, South Africa. 3 February 2017

Excellent price for the product. Using it in integrated software and snap still pictures for stock control. No problem.

Devon, South Africa. 18 November 2016

Good product,fits easily to my monitor and i love the built in microphone. Makes life so much easier.
very clear and i can use it to instruct Cortana on Windows10
Pics are also very clear, and the setup is a breeze.

Ruaan, South Africa. 14 March 2016

Software is very basic. Doesn't zoom. Fuzzy and laggy.

Tomi, South Africa. 14 July 2016

Decent video quality. Plug and play was painless. Great service from Takealot.

David, South Africa. 2 August 2017

Works well, picture is good. Only issue is the clip to hook it onto the monitor. Its more of a heavy rubber weight that holds the camera down on top of the monitor than a clip to attach it to the monitor. Mileage may vary.

Adrian, South Africa. 4 August 2017

I'll give this webcam 5 stars for the price

Louw, South Africa. 16 September 2016

This is the first HD webcam I've tried, so wasn't sure what I was going to get for the price, but works better than expected even in low light. Internal mic is also not bad for causal chatting.

Allan, South Africa. 9 June 2017

Installation was quick and easy, windows detected the unit and drivers installed without a problem. Quality of image on Skype was great.


5 Stars

Dennis, South Africa. 11 December 2016

Microsoft don't provide updated drivers for Windows 10. My camera is now useless. I'll never buy Microsoft hardware again

Pieter, South Africa. 19 January 2017

Works flawlessly on Windows 10 as soon as you plug it in. The resolution is 720p, which isn't the best ever but it's good for what this costs and FHD units are much more expensive. The mechanism for affixing itself to the monitor is quite stylish, and works well with every monitor I own. It's not the best webcam in the world, but for this price I really cannot complain. 5 stars since I can't find any fault for the price.

Alex, South Africa. 17 March 2017

not worth the price, the mic is terrible and the picture quality is very bad
