    Hi all

    Customer has contacted me she has a Toshiba laptop with a built in webcam.
    She has asked if its possible to replace this as the quality isnt very good.

    My question is has anyone done this and if so was it worth it ?

    Any other advice would be appreciated

    Thanks

    I would think that buying a better quality external Cam is the way to go.....

    Yeah i suggested that but she doesnt want to do that. I explained that the labour costs alone will be alot cause obviously i will need to take apart the laptop.

    But heh the customer is always right

    Never done it myself.....and internal Cams are usually always lower quality unless you pay silly prices........that customer must have more money than they need!!

    Customer is always right but after installing the new one they still may not be happy.........how much is the laptop worth to start with?
