Customers Report That it is Fairly Priced

Four people who reviewed this webcam concluded that it was good value for money.

  • Ok for price…
  • Works as intended, strong battery life, user friendly and fairly priced…
  • That is really SAD Now compare the specs, can you buy anything else for this PRICE that is as good, NO…
  • Neither machine cost me more that £45 including delivery costs - an incredible price considering these were retailing new at £400+ only four years ago…
  • If you are looking for a good tablet with the flexibility of downloading thousands of games and applications at very cheap prices - this isn't for you…

Users Report That it is Robust

Two people who reviewed this webcam agreed that it was well made.

  • The feel and quality of product one that is well made and its good size…
    Lyn (Amazon.co.uk) - January 2012
  • Once the connection between the two devices is broken, there are no emails left locally on the device - which from a security perspective (business users) is a great solution to a potential issue…
  • Also It has a really solid feel and the appearance of it is more elegant then other tablets on the market…
