OK, so. I have a Sylvania TV/PC monitor acting as the monitor for my desktop computer. It doesn't have a webcam internal to it.

Therefore, I need a webcam.

Monitor specs: 17" or so, LCD flatscreen...Beyond that not sure what to say...

Webcam needs: Needs to connect to computer via USB. Wireless would be awesome, but I'll take wired. Needs to be good enough for Skype video chats, and of such a type that it clips to the top of my monitor (so I can just look at my screen and the other person can see a proper picture. Internal webcams like on my laptop, I've had issues with positioning properly for physical reasons (only one eye to see with, no depth perception, etc) - I'd like to avoid that).

Because I'll be using Amazon gift cards to buy this thing, it'll need to be available on Amazon. I know I could probably get a whole new monitor, but I don't want to do that yet.

Unfortunately, I can't make heads or tails of Amazon's search results for webcams. So, uh, recommendations wanted.

The monitor clip is flexible so that you can shape it to fit your particular monitor.

Oooh, looks good. Bought!

OK, we can close this thread now...Or can I? I'm not too certain re SA's rules on that.
