I can't make it work.

Pam Simerly, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • 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: It is functional, but it does not hook on the laptop securely and it's bulky. I personally don't like it.

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.

Poor microphone

Mark Kislingbury "MarkChess", Amazon

  • 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.

Not HD 720P Poor Performance @ 640x480

FidoSysop, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • 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.

Works for a while

Kengineer "Kengineer", Amazon
29 June 2011
  • 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.
