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.
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.
Summary: I am using this as a webcam for streaming live video. Does not support 720p HD as advertised. The maximum resolution is 640x480 and it has trouble handling that on demand. Software is popping up resource limit messages when in use.
Summary: Would have given it a 5, but the Internet software didn't install. Got errors and continue to. I have a Dell XP SP3 2.8Ghx with only 1.5Gb ram. I'll add more ram and see if the low system memory errors go away. It's the only thing running on this machine.
