I bought this to use Motion Control and Skype on my Samsung UN50HU8550 Smart TV. It got detected well and works perfectly. I tried to use 2nd USB Port (1st USB Port says TV Camera) and it works in any USB Port. Video and Audio Quality in Skype is Average. My HP Laptop HD WebCam Image quality is great compared with this. In 50" TV Screen, the video looks bit grainy. Motion control control works fine. But it's hard to master. Need lot of patience and steady hand. Still I like it, because I don't need to search remote to control TV(Need adequate lighting for gesture control)

Last December 2014 I purchased a Samsung 65" Screen 4k HDTV (UN65HU8500FXZA). Last week (January 2015) I purchased this camera (VG-STC4000) and proceeded with the installation, which was basically just plug and play. The TV had no problem detecting the camera and it started working right away. However, the picture quality is definitely not HD, but instead quite grainy. I tried connecting it to my PC to make sure the problem was not with the camera, but instead the TV, but it simply won't work on a PC. It appears the camera is designed to work with the TV only. Will be returning the camera ASAP unless Samsung offers a solution...

I have the VG-STC4000 which is in 1080p on my 60" LED F6300. Works great when it comes to Skype. Works real well when when using the motion control. I love being able to mess with my friends and family by putting out my arm, waving it and changing the channel!
I have no trouble with this Camera. Plugged it in on my UN60F6300 TV and it was real nice!

Make sure you check that this is fully compatible with your TV before buying, and just as important, make sure that you buy it from a vendor who has a good return policy. Chances, are, you'll be very disappointed in the product and will be returning it. All in all, I've very disappointed in the Samsung smart TV and issues with peripherals etc. Much better option is a computer hooked up to your TV with HDMI support, and Skype from that. Plus you wont' be restricted to the pathetic menu of samsung apps. There's nothing really "SMART' about smart TV's.
This gets a lil warm... Even though it has a shutter , I don't recommend leaving it plugged in all the time. It seems to cause my TV to restart from time to time. I unplug it and my TV works just fine all the time. :-/
