Summary: I use Skype. I have been assured by those who Skype me that my video feed is superb (proviso of a good connection). I use a headset so I cannot testify to the quality of the in-built mic. For HD video over an internet connection: my friends and family say that it is the best quality! Unfortunately it just stopped working for no apparent reason after a few months.
Summary: After reading many reviews of the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000,i was expecting a lot from this webcam. I installed the Software and plugged webcam into my usb,i immediately got a system warning saying "Poor System Performance"when i used Full HD .I have 4 GB of Ram so was surprised .
