Where was the good in that review?

Not happy with that, cristicising iSight for obvious things like "it doesn't work well when there's a window behind you". Someone name me a camera that does.

And who has a sunny window behind their computer anyway? It would glare on the screen.

I concur on the sound fuzziness issue. I've noticed it at home on Airport on a TiBook and at work on a wired T1 connection on a dual 1GHz MDD.

It starts out clear and slowly gets fuzzy, making it necessary to turn the volume up to be able to make out the conversation.

The picture quality is excellent, though. I'd blame their issues on a poor DSL connection. And the complaining about the glare/eye contact issues are lame.

I've only used the audio part, and it seemed to work very well. If/When I get broadband, then I'll probably get the iSight. :cool:
