I can't make it work.

Pam Simerly, Amazon

  • Summary: It's supposed to be plug and play. It isn't. I had to hunt drivers for it when the initial download was interrupted by a bad connection. I finally got them, and it still won't work. I wouldn't buy it again. My 6$ one is working just fine now. Thanks Microsoft for another faulty product.

An HD Webcam That Can't Do HD Video Chat

Ed, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: The Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 is Microsoft's latest budget HD webcam offering ($39.95 MSRP). As far as webcams go, it's pretty much been a two horse race for the past few years, with Logitech being the other horse. The HD-3000 boasts 720p support and other enhanced quality features. The last budget Microsoft webcam I reviewed was the , which was an outstanding webcam value at the time. Can the HD-3000 equal or even best the old king of budget webcams? Let's find out.

Poor microphone

  • Summary: The microphone on this unit was pretty bad, so I purchased a HD-5000 and that model works better. Won't buy any more 3000s.

OEM webcam, not retail

cheetah, Scan
10 March 2015
  • Excerpt: It's an OEM version of Microsoft HD-3000, so there's no software (Microsoft Life Cam) included, you may have to download from somewhere. Usually, OEM product is sold to system builder, not end user. So, the warranty of it isn't with Microsoft anymore. This webcam is very good quality from Microsoft. The picture is very clear.
