Summary: Having moved several states away from my family, I realized that I needed to invest in a good quality web cam so that I could chat with them on a day to day basis. I am beyond happy with my purchase of this LifeCam from Microsoft. The picture quality is crystal clear, and though I normally chat with my headphones on, the few times I have just used the mic from the camera it's been pretty spectacular. On the camera stand. It isn't hard plastic, which is awesome.
Nice, solidly built, rugged little webcam that serves its purpose perfectly.

Summary: Nice, solidly built, rugged little webcam that serves its purpose perfectly. The software and drivers that Microsoft makes for it allows you to use the camera with Skype and most other video-chatting programs. Ive a few of these and have bought them for relatives over the years. This is the webcam I point people to when they ask what a good, reliable webcam would be to get. Highly recommended.
It connected right up nice & simple and hasn't failed me yet

Summary: I've been using this webcam for some time and have had no issues with it. It connected right up nice & simple and hasn't failed me yet. The video / audio quality works great for my needs. I don't need a more expensive high end webcam that has features I probably won't use anyhow. I just need(ed) a webcam that lets me see & hear the person on the other end well enough to maintain a conversation as long as I wanted without being frustrated by poor quality video or audio.
Summary: I'm using this webcam to watch my 3d prints from my phone while away from home in order to remotely shut them down if need be. The resolution doesn't seem to be necessarily what they say it to be but that is most likely because of the streaming software I'm using. This has great low light capabilities and captures without the typical webcam lag.
Summary: The camera arrived on time and is as represented. The picture is clear and the camera, was easy to set up. The flexible band to help hold the camera in place on the laptop lid while certainly helpful, could be more adjustable--the camera tends to slip if the computer is slightly moved.
Summary: Not bad for a cheap webcam. It says that it's noise reducing, but I haven't heard it do that yet. It is very small and very light so it can be easily knocked off. That clip is actually flexible which I was surprised about cause I thought it would have been hard. The head of it can be swiveled about 45ᵒ from left to right or right to left.
Summary: Excellent cam, very well made and convenient on my large monitor. The quality of the video via Skype is pretty good in decent lighting conditions and in excellent lighting conditions, it's simply perfect.
