All told, this versatile webcam from Creative offers stellar quality video and sound for a bargain of a price.

The USB 2.0 plug-and-play setup allows you to immediately start video chatting online as soon as you connect the webcam to your computer

      This product worked great with my desktop Mac computer. Installed in just a few minutes and I can use it for business and just to talk with family. Not expensive and you get more than you ask for. Only thing was that it didn't stay on my computer and i had to use the stand instead.

              Comments about Creative Labs Live! Cam Chat HD:

              We primarily use this cam at the office for taking images of new members for our directory database. This takes clear still images, which is what we needed it for most. It was nice to find a cam that could even take decent stills let alone clear and good quality for such an affordable price. I am sure the video quality is nice as well, but have yet to use it for that purpose. Setup is super easy and easy image capture as well. No training or tech skills needed.

              I am using this webcam on a Mac and it works pretty well. There is a slight lag in the video but nothing that makes it unusable. Picture quality is great. Would definitely recommend this to others.
