The Webcam that refuses to die

by Volker Weber

Just found this on Tom's Hardware Guide: The 3Com HomeConnect webcam, that has long since been disconnected and is now the Inside Out Networks Watchport/V.

This is by far the best webcam I ever came across. A new one is very expensive. And there is no driver development. It does run on Windows up to XP, but not on the Mac. I tried the macam drivers, but the picture they deliver is plain awful. But for the PC there is no better webcam. So if you can catch one on eBay, do not hesitate. Make sure however, you get this device. 3Com hat a cheaper camera with a similar name (and that looks very different). It was as bad as the rest of the pack.
