Has a Built-In Microphone

The Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams that are a similar age to this webcam also have a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Foscam FI8918W (£56.99) which has better reviews; or the Tenda C30 which is cheaper.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the Chuango IP116 (£80.17) is also worth considering.
