I'm a long-time fan of HP products so was delighted to receive the Webcam HD-3100 for review. Here's my take on it.The 720P with trueVision is a plug and play device offering clear images even in low light. It has three quick launch buttons (IM, Snapshot and Video) on the right-hand side of the camera and comes with a glass lens and a handy mount. It works with AOL Instant Messenger, Skype, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. Fill featured software with special effects lets you choose ma ... sque designs, and a 16 x 9 widescreen range rather than the usual 4 x 3 and still-shot resolution of up to 5.7 megapixels.The Technical Details:720P (1280x720) CMOS sensor; Fixed focus- range approximately 12 inches to 10 feet; USB 2.0 high-speed certified; Still Picture Resolution: Up to 5.7 Megapixels.Compatibility: AIM, Skype, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo!

Most of my family's computers are Macs with built-in iSight webcams. I also have a G5 iMac without an iSight and a Dell D410. This gave me a good base to compare results across platforms and against other modern contenders. In summary, the HD3100 worked well, was plug and play on both Mac and PC, but has only adequate image quality that makes me wonder how this can be "HD". In particular, its unadjusted color balance and basic sharpness are just OK vs. the Mac's built-in iSight.Details:The unit ... worked just fine on Skype on both the Mac (OSX 104.11 and 10.5.6) and PC (XP). The video did not lag or pixelate on our internal testing or on cable broadband (3M up and 13M down). It supports UVC, which means that it is plug and play on most OSX Macs and PCs that are XP and newer. One might question the use of this on a Mac since I've already said the built in iSight is better, but if you are using an older Mac (iMac G5) or a Mac that doesn't have a monitor More >
