Dan Farber at ZDnet reviews SightSpeed (v5): "Like others (such as Skype, iChatAV, Yahoo, MSN, iVisit) in the IP video/voice conferencing space, voice and video services are merging. However, SightSpeed's claim to fame is its video quality..... SightSpeed's business model includes building co-brands for partners, such as for Creative Labs, Roxio, Telewest (an MSO in the UK). The company logs more than 90 million in minutes on a monthly basis, Csathy said. SightSpeed isn't offering free calls in North America like Skype, but is competitive with other services (2 cents a minute in the U.S.)."
