Summary: I got this web cam after my other LifeCam Cinima started acting funny... After two years with that web cam, it began to randomly shut off during video calls but work fine if only using the mic while playing a game online.

Summary: This video cam and mike works well for me in Skype. Sitting in front at bpttom of desktop, it can easily show 2 people should height at a distance of less than 2 feet. Unlike both my laptop and tablet whose built in cameras can show only one person unless you move much further away making it...
Excerpt: The quality is not bad could be just a tad better but for the price its better than most webcams. It takes real good still pictures and does real good video and has awesome low light pickup so you dont need all the lights on in the room to use it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection, Good In Low Light, Sharp Image
Summary: Had some problems with the zoom function but I rarely need to zoom. The auto-focus takes a little two long but if you manually focus it works great. You can mount this cam just about anywhere and the usb chord is a little bit longer which is nice.
Excerpt: LifeCam performs well in all areas. The software running on Win 8 is incomplete. Runs complete on Win 7. Download software from Microsoft for Win 7 to run on Win 8, almost perfect. It allows adjustment of resolution and camera settings. Then download Windows Essentials 2012 to complete software.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection, Good In Low Light, Microphone Performs Well, Sharp Image
Summary: Great for the price only real issue with the camera is the monitor mount. It's a little too light and prone to shifting which incidentally makes the camera auto focus awkwardly though this is rare. Webcam is great as well as the noise-cancelling mic. Would recommend for streaming content.
Summary: Was considering the Microsoft LifeCam Studio 1080p HD Webcam (Q2F-00013) until I read the user reviews on Amazon. It just seemed like too many people had problems with that web camera. This camera, however, had 174 reviews at the time and ALL of them were 4 or 5 star reviews.
