There are much better options

Corey Shaughnessy, Amazon
5 April 2016
  • Summary: The camera is constantly refocusing. Very obnoxious. The mic is also terrible and barely picks up audio. Not to mention Windows 10 does not recognize a Microsoft camera that is certified for Windows 10. Wut.

Not COMPATIBLE with WINDOWS 10

Michael Meacham, Amazon
18 February 2016
  • Summary: Not compatible with Windows 10, in spite of what Microsoft says. Impossible to open the dashboard to change camera settings after installation. Microsoft support kept hanging up on me when they found I was calling about a web cam.

DOES NOT DO 30 FRAMES PER SECOND

CD Tak, Amazon
2 February 2016
  • Summary: You cannot get 30 fps as advertised (if using the MS drivers and MS LifeCam software) - only 15 fps, which is really choppy. After some searching online, I found that some people can get the 30 fps, but it involves fiddling with drivers and using 3rd party software.

Decent set of software but poor focus

Stabglabilatz, B&H Photo
10 January 2016
  • Excerpt: Bought this to use for video calling and various photo and video projects. I like the accompanying software which seems would be very nice to go with a better camera. But the picture quality is far inferior to the older Logitech unit it replaced.

Jett, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked beautifully for about 5 months. Now its completely dead, I have been using it on and off. I have uninstalled all related drivers and reinstalled accordingly in multiple ways. Would I recommend this? No, get the C920.

Great Video, HORRIBLE AUDIO

Eric C., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: Autofocus is a bit crazy in some lighting but you can always adjust it manually.
  • Pros: Crisp and clear 720p video.
  • Cons: Mic gives a constant high-pitched hiss that is unbearable in a stream or call.

Not a good deal

Jason N., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Summary: The mic is not usable. And there is no fixing it. I ended up buying a dedicated microphone. I would not recommend this brand of webcam to anyone ever.
  • Pros: Video quality is ok.
  • Cons: The mic is very bad. worst mic I have ever used. all kinds of noise (hissing sound). The software for the camera us useless.
