Not as good as Skype on computer

After researching for video cameras for my 47" LED Vizio TV to use the Skype feature, I found no others are compatible and that Vizio makes their TV's proprietary. The price at Walmart was much better than through Vizio. Hooking it up with HDMI cable and loading/running the app is a no-brainer. My internet service speed is around 10Mbps over 1 and had no problems making a connection with another on Skype. You'll need plenty of light in the room in order for the other party to be able to see you. I Skyped with my girlfriend on her iPhone from the same room, same level of light in a dark-paneled room, and her video from her phone was plenty bright yet she could barely see me. The picture was more grainy than when Skyping on computer. The camera has vertical adjustment but no horizontal. Sound was adequate and voxed decently. For reference, there's no zoom and pan mode as with the Logitech Review camera. Also you won't be able to watch TV and Skype at the same time. As of my last research Logitech will not work with Skype. They have their own proprietary app. I would have gone this route for the added features if they did. To summerize, if you want to gather the family together to Skype from capable Vizio TV, and have a well lit room, this may work for you. If you have a computer and can Skype from that, save yourself the extra cost.

Easily hooked up by usb. works well with the V.I.A. Skype although it seems as if the camera goes to sleep and has to be unplugged and re-plugged to be recognized. Only a small irritation. overall really like it.

Plug and play great. Skype came preloaded on tv so all I needed to do was log in and call. Better pic with wire connect to internet than wireless

You must use usb port #2 and restart the TV for it to be seen. Video is absolutely horrible ( very grainy ) all I can say is it does work. The sound / microphone is excellent.

Has great picture but unfortunately you cannot access camera properties and mine shows the picture in reverse. Vizio support do not seem to know anything about this product or how to fix this issue.

We use it all the time on our Vizio TV and it works great, picture is clear and mic works great. Attaches to the TV okay. Would like to be able to zoom but it works fine for our needs.

It would even be a better camera if there was a way to adjust volume/picture quality
