  Surprisingly good

| | See all FentonGib's reviews (10)

I'd been contemplating getting a webcam for a while, and when I saw this I couldn't help it for the novelty factor alone.

The Good: Surprisingly decent webcam, more than ample for IM and Skype use. Uses standard drivers so was up and running very quick. Looks nice with lit up nacelles.

The Bad: Brings no software at all, unlike other webcams, so you can't take your own photo with it, add fancy effects or similar without 3rd part software. Can look perhaps a little TOO plasticky (but find if you're a geek like me or if it's for children). Though the foldable stalk is durable, it is "stuck on" your monitor by a sticky pad on the logo. This started becoming loose after 5 minutes and came off totally the first time I had to point the camera elsewhere. I now have it superglued on (that works for a while). The USB cable it brings is too short for the fact it's going to be put on a monitor, unless you put it on the side next to a usb port if your monitor has it. I have it placed near the middle of my 20" Dell widescreen, which has 2 USBs on the left and 2 more underneath - the USB doesn't reach and required a (not included) extension cable.

Overall: despite some flaws, it does its job, and looks quite cool (for me and my geek friends' standards) and am happy I bought it.
