Quality everyday Webcam
7 August 2015
Summary: Great for everyday use. I noticed some reviews are a little critical of certain specialty aspects, If you need higher quality optics, just move on & buy something with those qualities for a higher price. It works as advertised. 1 negative.
Excerpt: I bought this to replace a more expensive Logitech camera when some sort of desktop resource conflict would boot me offline each time that camera was in use. LifeCam saved the day for the online video critique program I take part in.
Excerpt: We got this for conference calling with our remote offices. We link it up with Skype accounts and since it has built in microphone, it's a complete solution. What I did not expect is such clear crisp video quality - especially when compared to a smartphone. Great solution for the price.
Excerpt: I bought this for skyping with family and it worked great with almost no set-up required. Because it is a Microsoft product, the moment I plugged it, Win 7 recognized and downloaded the latest driver for it. No restart required and I was skyping right away.
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.
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.
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.
