An ideal upgrade from standard webcams, this Jupiter HD Web Camera has a 720p HD sensor so you can chat in high definition. It has a built in microphone which most software will automatically adjust to get the perfect levels for clear sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly OK I bought this to allow me to Skype with my old desktop machine running Windows 7 Pro. It works well. Yeah I have better proper cameras than this but for what I bought it for it's perfect. It took a bit of fiddling with the stand before I worked out how to hang it off the top of my monitor. The instruction sheet could have been clearer in this regard. Do I have any gripes at all. Well there is just one. I would like to have a hotkey that could just turn it off and on at the touch of a button. But I added an extension USB lead I had lying around and I can plug it and unplug it in about a second. But no software control loses it one star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I picked up the webcam a couple of days ago and have been using it for Skype and recording videos ever since. The quality of the webcam (720p HD) is nice and crisp and the camera seems to be perfect. As expected the microphone on the camera isn't brilliant but it never is. It has a lovely design and looks lovely on the desk. The stand is average and can hook onto the monitor but the magnetic connector that connects the camera to the stand isn't brilliant but works. Overall 4 out of 5. It could be improved by a better stand and 1080p HD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Little webcam, weird zoom in image I bought this webcam because i wanted the cheapest 720p alternative i could find, and this is what i got. The build quality is actually quite good for just 12 pounds. The image quality is indeed true 720p and nice and crisp. The only downside to this is that it has a weird fixed zoom in the lens. The image appears much closer than it actually is. With the webcam attached to the top of my screen, it is about half a meter away from my face but the image displays me quite close. Not a major issue but it is kind of annoying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay-ish so the only gripe i have about this product is that the driver software included wouldnt install on my windows 7 machine, which is mightly annoying as i wanted the touch controls, but video is brilliant, stand is a little flimsy, could possibly do with a stronger mangent but ehh, overall not bad

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but cable too short Camera itself is perfectly acceptable for the price but the cable is too short. Probably a majority of users would have a configuration of the webcam on top of the monitor on a desk and the computer under the desk on the floor. 1.2 metres of cable is not long enough for this where the cable run isn't straight down. The cost of another 0.8m of cable can't be much more than 5p straight from the Chinese factory, but skimping on this makes the product far less useful as you need a USB extension cable to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor microphone The microphone on this webcam is poor, producing a muffled sound. It's actually worse than the built-in microphone in my laptop. If you're buying this product to make Skype calls or similar, I suggest this webcam is not a good buy. Disappointing.
