  • Finally, a Worthy FireWire Webcam

    May 2, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: FireWire! Decent software; good video quality, resolution, and frame rate.
    Cons: Permanently attached cable, microphone is expensive "upgrade"

    Summary: Much better than a USB camera, the iBot is essentially just as easy to setup and use as any other Webcam. I have it working successfully with no muss, no fuss on a W2K machine. The FireWire interface allows a much higher quality image than a USB or ... read more

  • One of the best webcams!

    Jun 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Works with Apple/Windows PC's, all instant messengers. Firewire, 'nuf said.
    Cons: Tips over easy 'cuz of wire connection, so use clip to hold it to desk.

    Summary: I've owned this firewire webcam for about 2 years. It's still one of the best I've seen. Good color, good motion capture. Great looking on my desk - It's got style! I've used this with MS Windows 98SE, 2000, and XP without any problems at all. None! ... read more

  • A piece of junk!

    Feb 11, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to focus
    Cons: Tips over very easily.

    Summary: Unless you are a Mac user I would avoid buying this webcam. There is almost no support for PC users and Tech support doen't seem to respond to any e-mail questions. Only a few adjustments are available for the camera though Windows XP and ... read more

  • OrangeMicro iBOT2 USB 2.0 - Not recommended

    Jan 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: USB 2.0; fast; tripod mount; sort of cool look
    Cons: no white balance; need very good lighting; problems with Yahoo! web cam

    Summary: Under Windows XP, on an HP Pavilion 753n: I have an Intel USB 1.1 web cam (CS330) that I bought a few years ago. Now that I have a new HP Pavilion with a USB 2.0 and Firewire ports, I wanted to upgrade to a better, faster web cam. My search ... read more

  • Neat, but Doesn't Quite Cut It

    Sep 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Firewire allows for greater video speed in video chat, etc.
    Cons: Awkward installation. Less than great video quality overall.

    Summary: Not as extensive as some of my other reviews, but I hope I get the point across here: The iBOT was the first "firewire" web cam to hit stores, and was adopted by Mac users first, as Macs were more prone to have firewire ports on their systems ... read more

    Aug 20, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Firewire Interface, CCD Imaging, Great Value
    Cons: High lux, Odd base, Hard to position

    Summary: Background: I've begun dabbling with webcams to make a home webcam website. My first webcam was decent - a Logitech QuickCam Pro 3000 and I am quite happy with it. I needed a couple more cameras, so I started researching them a bit. Why ... read more

    Pros: Fast frame rate at 640x320, picks up light well.
    Cons: Base does not come with a clip for LCD screens.

    Summary: I read all the other reviews, and was alarmed that some were glowing while others were disparaging of the iBot. One guy posted his review in the wrong place: the IBot2 USB2.0 webcam has its own section. But anyway, I decided to pick one up and see how it ... read more
