Now you may think sound quality is an odd thing to talk about when reviewing a webcam. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth, as the MSI Starcam Genie comes with a built in microphone. Unfortunately, although the sound quality is good, the distance from you to the cam needs to be quite small for any sound to be picked up, and you only really become audible when the Genie is right in front of your mouth. This makes using the mic included with the Starcam only good for shouted conversations, which is less than desirable.
The Starcam genie is currently being sold for around £15 which is about on par with other webcams of this type.
