Although I was a little let down at the malfunction of the effects button, there was still plenty to take note of with the Starcam Genie. It works very effectively at it’s main job; being a webcam. It also produces reasonable quality pictures and although it’s a little OTT, the MyGuard application is at best a cheap security measure, and at worst, a fun little program to play with. The bottom line with the Starcam Genie though, is price. At £15 it’s a steal for the features you get with it, and hell, it even looks quite good. Granted, if I used this all the time I’d be wary of the magnet near my PC, but looking at everything else, yea, I’d buy one.

|Bundled software is useful/fun||Picture quality not anything to shout about|
|Good value for money||Included microphone is useless|
