Do you use Skype or any other video conferencing software? I don't very often, but when I do I want it to be clear. I just use the built in camera on my laptop, but at standard VGA, it can be a small and unclear picture. It is fine for my rare uses but if you use it a lot, you may want something with a larger display ability.
If you are one of the growing group that do video conference regularly, then you know what I mean. Don't you want to see the picture in full screen? For full screen display, you need an HD webcam. faceVsion has come up with an option. The FV touchcam N1 is the first webcam with Internet streaming and true HD that works with Skype. This means that using it will get a full screen display for the other end. If you want full screen, then you will need to send one to whoever you are talking with too.
In order to process the data, compress it and send it along the device has its own Express Card to save your computers processor power. That means you need an express card slot. Many laptops, including mine, no longer come with express card slots. The VideoCam-FV TouchCam N1 does not seem to need the express card slot that the more expensive ones do. It might use more processor power without it, but for those without the express card (or don't want to spend an extra $30) it might be worth it.
If you like color choices the FV ExpressCombo comes in black, white or red. It boasts an HD, 720p, UXGA, 1600x1200 display. That display is larger than my 17 inch laptop, so should give a nice crisp clear full screen image on most displays up to about 18 inch, or even larger.
