What's really great about this deal is that it also comes with free express shipping from NCIX! Usually, the shipping fees on NCIX kill some of the deals on the smaller gadgets and electronics, so seeing free shipping on this was a real bonus.
It's got a pretty basic specification, as you might expect for such a cheap item. But if you are just needing a very basic webcam that doesn't break the bank, this could be just the ticket.
A couple of months ago., we bought a very basic webcam for my mom-in-law to be, to put on her old desktop computer. We didn't want to be spending much on it as it's only used about once a week, and we got her a webcam very similar to this one.
P.S. A 3 year warranty is a definite benefit.
