    Pros: - A very cheap webcam for IM. Very easy to use. - Does not need any drivers at all to install. Pure plug and play. - LED lights are ok for very near illumination. - Easy to face camera in any direction. - Camera stand fits perfectly on top of my monitor.

    Cons: - Built quality is average, does not feel solidly built. Feels fragile. - LED lights were not working when I first used it, had to jiggle the LEDs befor it lighted up. - Delievery of the webcam took forever as it did not have a tracking number.

    Other: - Cheap, easy to use webcam for IM. - Be patient when waiting for it to arrive.

    Pros: it works! its driverless.. really simple.. didnt need to install anything.. just plug and have video chats right away! i also like the light switch that you can use.. its really helpful with the LEDs

    Cons: only two things i didnt like.. the clip that is used to put on the laptop or desktop is confusing and not tight.. i just leave it on the table.. also it seems like its zoomed in.. you have to put it far away to make your face look normal

    Other: good product.. okay video quality.. good LED lights.. very simple to use

    Pros: The webcam is cheap, and reasonably well constructed. The base design is unusual, and allows placing it on a flat surface, which can be difficult with the standard webcam base designed for mounting on top of an LCD display.

    Cons: Previous reviews report a maximum resolution of 640x480, but the current version is only capable of half that in each dimension - low enough resolution to be essentially useless. It appears that the supplier has switched to building these webcams with a new, inferior chipset, as the device I received has a USB device id of 18ec:3290, very different from that reported for the 640x480 capable version.

    Other: The previous version of this webcam seems to have been a good deal, but be warned of the significant limitations of the current version.

    Pros: Great view at daylight. And I like the easy picture button on the top.

    Cons: Led lights are not so bright, don't help much. When weather is dark and/or cloudy, rainy, view looks blurry (but since it's problem of all cameras, that's not a con really.)

    Other: I bought this item for my girlfriend almost 1 year ago. It still works as a charm! She doesn't have any complaint. I have almost same one (there is a brand on mine.) which I bought in local market (but for 2x higher price than dealextreme price) that is why I ordered this webcam for her. If you are looking for a cheap camera, buy this one. But now there are fantastic cameras in DX for a little higher prices.

    Pros: Let's see, it worked fine, it's LEDs are bright and the instalation was very easy on Windows XP. It does what it's supposed to, and it's great for IM like MSN meseenger. Vamos ver, funcionou bem, seus LEDs são brilhantes e a instalação foi bem fácil no Windows XP. Faz o que deve fazer, e é ótima para IMs, como MSN.

    Cons: The built quality is not that good, and the LEDs are not bright enough to light the room. If I would buy another webam right now I think I would go for a less expensive one, since this is not that good. A qualidade do material não é tão boa, e os LEDs não iluminam uma área muito grande. Se fosse comprar uma agora, iria escolher uma mais barata, já que essa nem é tão boa assim.

    Other: As I said, I'not regreted for buying it, but I would buy a less expensive one right now. Como eu disse, não me arrependi de tê-la comprado, mas compraria uma mais barata se fosse agora.

    Pros: Webcam reasonably good, the LED lighting work well and needs no drivers to use.
    A webcam é razoavelmente boa, os LEDS ajudam bastante pra iluminar e funcionam perfeitamente. Ela é self-driver, não precisa instalar para usar =)

    Cons: he quality is not 1.3 MP, is well below. To work, you need CODEC MPG.
    A qualidade não é de 1.3 MP, é bem inferior.

    Other: For the low price, buy offsets.
    Pelo preço baixo, compensa comprar.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This little webcam does its job. Installation in Windows OS does not require any drivers (tryed only with XP). Camera works very well for instant messaging software (tried MSN Messenger) allowing you to set different parameters (brightness, contrast, saturation, exposure, ...). It also can be mounted on top of LCD monitor or Laptop screen, although it does not come with a clip (the base opens up so you can attach it, although not very grippy).
    Good product for the price.

    Cons: LEDs looks a nice feature and are bright, but not enough to light up a room, so they are not of a real use. In fact, when they are used, the image gets overexposed. As other users stated, the leds don't work the way they should when not operating in full power. Plastic cover looks cheap.

    Other: Since I bought this camera for IM, it does its job very well. I would certainly recommend this camera for such application. Good price.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This camera is really easy to set up and get to work in Windows XP. Just plug it in, and it installs. You can use Yawcam or just Windows's webcam system to access the video output. The camera is solidly built, and has a dial to adjust the brightness of the LEDs on the side.

    Cons: Unfortunately, the driver that works with this camera on Windows doesn't allow you to adjust exposure or other camera-specific properties. You can adjust the video processing properties, but those only go so far.
    I'm not a huge fan of its automatic exposure compensation. It seems to be set a little high, because all the highlights are blown out. You need to use something like Yawcam to manually pull back the brightness to a more visually appealing level.
    I don't think this camera has an IR filter built into it, so you could use it as a night-camera, though it'll be slow since it tries to compensate the exposure automatically.

    Other: I haven't compared this camera's price and quality against other webcams on this site, but this one is pretty decent versus local webcam prices. I do wish it had greater control over the exposure or other settings. I'm looking around for a driver that may be able to do this in lieu of the fact that Windows's doesn't allow it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Small and inexpensive. The camera stand can be opened for mounting on top of LCD monitor. There is a tripod connection socket as well. Has 6 white LEDs for illumination. These LEDs are quite strong, just enough for shooting in a full darkness. The LEDs brightness can be adjusted with potentiometer mounted on camera's cable. Most important - it works with Linux! See the instructions for Sonix/Microdia Webcam here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=512059

    Cons: The rubber around lens looks cheap and not aligned with the camera body. The USB cable is quite thick and since it is connected to the middle of the back cover it may make your camera unstable when mounted on LCD screen top.

    Other: Good unit, specially if you are the Linux user like me.
