     Great webcam for the price

    I've had this webcam for just over a year now.

    It's a very simple yet effecient cam. The picture is good and it does the job brilliantly.

    For the price it's at.. if you want a cheap yet cheerful cam, but this one.

    The webcam connects to your computer via USB.

    It comes with software + drivers disk, so if you're comp doesn't automatically detect it once the cam is in, just pop the disk in and install.

    The perfect cheap cam. Very simple and quick to install. Worth the money. Not the most fancy of cams, but it does the job. The quality is good, too.

     For the price , its pretty good.

    Well obviously for 7.99 you can hardly expect a remote controled electronic webcam now can you? But for the price its pretty awesome.

    This labtec webcam is Ok quality. A bit hard to position the angle to where you want it but it does eventually.

    The program that you get with it is simple and easy to use which is always a good thing.

    If your looking for a cheap webcam , then this would definatly be the perfect thing for you.

     Webcam OK, some problems with software

    | | See all LaurelHouse's reviews (1)

    As others have said, this webcam is OK for the money.
    The problems are with the software, which eats up system memory - if you find your computer slows down after installation then this could be why (do a google search on "labtec webcam" and you will see many others say the same thing).

    For best performance, do not use the CD which comes in the pack. Instead download the latest version of the software from Labtec's website and do a "custom" installation to install the driver only but not the application.

     Does the job, easy to use!

    For me, this webcam is ideal. Very easy to use, good quality, and a fair price! If, like me, you aren't too up on these things and you're looking for something straight forward that does the job, then this could be for you!
