Since COVID hit, I've been looking for a new webcam. It seems 1/2 the world is too as all the popular (read: doesn't cost an arm and a leg) name-brand ones appear to be back-ordered with no expected delivery dates.

When it comes in and you get it going (thinking positive here), let us know what you think of it.

Very nice price - and specs too.

The brand (Goodtar) is puzzling. They obviously don't make that camera. Any clue who does?

Not a bad price Murf.
Considering that the price of most known established brands have doubled in price since the COVID hit.

But yeah, that brand "Goodtar".
It seems too be one of many quick pop up companies that are trying to cash in on the demand for webcams.

For all we know, it could be made just for Amazon.

Made in China, where else, I cleaned the box...lol At least the instructions were in English. It had great reviews that is why I got this one, was going to go with a Logitech, but this one was cheaper, plus it had the privacy cover I wanted.

Yeah, that immediately caught my attention too.

I was looking at some of the Logitech and MS cameras but besides being out of stock with no estimated dates for availability, most were considerably more expensive and many of those only supported 720P.

Made in China doesn't really bother me. Even the best brands outsource their production. As long as the design is good, and the company whose brand name is on the product does their due diligence to ensure the parts used and manufacturing techniques meet or exceed all design specs (through proper quality assurance tests), I'm okay with Made in China. Of course, just because a reputable company puts their logo on a product, that is no guarantee of quality. But it does give us hope, compared to a generic or off-brand name.

Still - good comments from a name we can trust (e.g., "Murf") is reassuring too.
