            I have only tested the product out a couple of times and it works perfectly. It's actually a lot smaller than I thought and the picture quality is good. Easy set up for Apple users. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I haven't had a chance to Skype yet.

                This little gadget was so easy to set up. Since I have a Mac, I didn't need to install any software. I just hooked it up and started to play.

                Fast shipping, great service!
