Pros: Easy to set up, has a decent camera and microphone, I like the flip down privacy covering.
Cons: My setup is not the best lit (window is behind me and to the side), so I do find it hard to get a good image. There is an HD setting available, but this doesn't help, and neither do the number of goofy instagram-filter style settings available (I'm not sure who those are meant for). This is not necessarily the webcam's faultI don't have a ton of experience using different webcamsbut I imagine someone in my situation could probably find something cheaper that does just as well.
Overall Review: It's a decent webcam, but will not do anything special without proper lighting.
Pros: The keys have a nice feel and are fairly quiet. It's very easy to set up. I haven't used it to connect to multiple devices, but I like that that is an option.
Cons: The only thing I don't like is that the backlight keeps turning off when the keyboard is not being used for a certain amount of time (which is fairly short), I guess to save energy. If you were working in a very dark setting, you'd have to be typing pretty continuously to see the keys. I would prefer just being able to keep the backlight steadily on at my preferred brightness level. Perhaps there is a way to do this, but I did not find the instructions helpful for this.
Overall Review: I would recommend it.
Pros: Fairly good image, easy to set up, good price.
Cons: Has intermittent flickering issues that cannot really be corrected. I've tried restarting the monitor, restarting the whole computer, and switching between different refresh rates and display settings, switching HDMI cables and HDMI ports, but nothing works. Sometimes the flickering is very light and barely noticeable, but other times it's very intense, almost like a strobe light. It eventually goes away on its own, but that doesn't help when I have work to do. I've had this monitor for just under 2 weeks now and have had this issue twice already. I considered returning it, but given the low price of the monitor and the cost for me to ship it back, it would not be worth it.
Overall Review: It's an okay monitor for a good price, but with the flickering issue I probably would not recommend it.
