Mind your homophones, his sole may or may not be be dark but it cannot be dreary, also he cannot be a sole if you assume he's human, though he probably has a sole or two. You mean "soul."

Woot linked this under the "Oprah" link in the description. This is also why the site is not working, just like how woot has trouble during a wootoff, a small "manufacturer" has trouble handling 5% percent of the traffic woot gets.
The following error occurred:
[code=CANT_CONNECT] Could not connect because of networking problems. Contact your system administrator.
Please contact the administrator.
This means the web server cannot connect to the database server, which is probably running their content management system. It simply crashed under the load and continues to crash when they try to restart it due to the load (you guys) not going away. It has almost no indication of the level of support you can get from the company or how good their drivers are. I can basically guarantee you this site will be up tomorrow.

Good idea; you can't trust Oprah any more than you can trust Regis and Kelly on such matters as quality electronics.

Use this code 15450...and you will also get 5% off your first purchase, because the site is run by my good friend from his bedroom.
They sell on ioffer.com as well and you can use Paypal for absolutely no extra insurance from them.
These have the definite air of being fenced stolen goods. Sometimes you can trust the fencer to actually give you the product after payment, sometimes you can't.
Pandawill is selling on their own site and on ioffer; ioffer is based in California and might actually be able to be held more accountable than pandawill. On their own site, pandawill lists their contact as a gmail address, even though any domain host should give you email at your own domain name, and in a pinch gmail can be configured to read email from that account. Also google sells business level access to google apps allowing the setup to be done even more smoothly for say firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will notice that the domain name pandawill.com disappears from the URL on other pages to be replaced with the IP 18.104.22.168. This indicates poor server configuration, or a very cheap setup without support. I wouldn't really trust a very cheaply put together website with prices 4x below the next lowest cost offering free shipping from somewhere that is likely china to anywhere else air mail; that said I got an airmailed circuit board from Hong Kong that seemed to cost the sender 15 cents in USD.

It's not natively compatible with iChat, but there is an app out there, ichatusbcam, that allows you to use a USB webcam with iChat. If you don't use iChat, then this probably isn't a problem. Don't think I want to trade my isight in for this quite yet
You probably don't want to trade in an iSight; Apple makes iChat free to sell Apple hardware like the iSight and all products with one built in. No manufacturer can make an iSight compatible webcam without paying Apple, and even then, they are likely to shoot down the proposal.
So call Apple and tell them iChat is broken and you want it fixed while it's still under warranty. Record this call and post it on a comedy site. You could become internet famous. Please note I will bill you for 10% of the profits from this idea.
It supports audio and video; that means something about having a built in microphone. Its probably not a good microphone.
Not HD... rage
HD isn't an industry standard term. HD doesn't specify the image quality of a webcam nor it's frame rate. It's a term for marketers to foist on suckers.
There's HD audio, HD radio, HD television sets, HD broadcast standards, HD production cameras (like the Red), HD camcorders using tape or memory or hardrives, HD still cameras with video, HD still cameras without video, HD cellphone cameras, HD web cams, HD printers even. It really only means it's better than what we tried selling you last week.
