I expected the light to throw off a bit more light than it does. It definitely improves the lighting situation, but you'll need other lighting sources for the full benefits of this camera. The integrated mic and overall quality is great. The fact that it works standalone with the stand and clips onto the computer is also great - it's a really novel and effective design. I would highly recommend this camera for people who are on zoom meetings all day, like I am. The webcam comes with a bunch of software which is really unnecessary for people who just need a webcam to get a basic job done - I've ultimately uninstalled all of the Razer Synapse add-ons.
