Check the about my lighting page to understand the tests.
This camera was made in China exclusively for Radio Shack, so don't expect to find it in you neighborhood computer store.
A fair camera but I found the images to be rather dark and contrasty. In the bright light tests the light side of my face was very over exposed. Rather useless in very low light.
The mount works on a notebook nicely or on a desktop but won't sit on top of a standard flat panel monitor.
I found the Logitech QC Communicate Deluxe to be far better with its image quality at about the same price, even though a lower resolution.
