End of Service Life?
18 November 2011
Summary: I went to Creative's support page to determine if this webcam would work on my 64-bit Windows 7 system, and I was met with this: . . Live! Cam Vista IM (VF0420) Thank you for your interest. End of Service Life The product you have selected has been classified as 'End of Service Life'. . . Fortunately, further down the page there is a driver for Windows 7, both 32- and 64-bit. But, there hasn't been anything updated for this product since Jan 2010. Hmmm.
Summary: Am not sure if it will be working with Windows 7 OS. I have a creative webcam VF-0080 and creative no longer supports it. It doesnt provide the drivers for windows 7. The webcam inspite of being in working condition is unusable because creative is not ready to work on developing the drivers for it. I find it very strange because any upgraded or new version of software should at least have this basic backward compatibility..
Summary: I saw there were a few bad reviews and mostly good reviews so I decided to buy this item. I downloaded it and it froze constantly when I tried to use it with skype. I thought maybe there was a glitch when I downloaded the cd-rom, so I tried downloading it again and it froze up. I can't get this thing to work!!! I will update if I figure it out..
Summary: I bought this a couple of weeks ago. The color in this cam is absolutely terrible. I think it is ok if you just want a cam but not if you want to the person you are letting view you see anything that has to do with color!!! There are no special features on this cam - I have tried to adjust the color in the settings and it does nothing but make it worse. I would NOT recommend this to anyone.
Summary: I haven't even had time to use it much and they sent an email for this review. I don't want to leave it in my inbox or forget, so I'm just going to do it now. I've only had this thing for like 2 or 3 days. So far I seem to be happy with it though. It works and the picture quality is better than I expected. The sound works, I know alot of people talk about how the sound doesn't work when they get their web cam.
Summary: I have not even bought this cam. After the reviews I read, I tought this product was great. When I got the product by me best friend, I hoked it up on my mac. It was the perfect gift. I was able to chat with my friend. You can use the microphone up to 3-5 feet with out my friend hearing me. The cam is amazing! Get the cam it is worth it!
