Jonni Anderson, Amazon

  • Summary: I followed instructions, downloaded and installed software, plugged in the webcam when indicated. The software crashed. I uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled. Same thing. I requested a replacement. The same thing happened with the new webcam. Tried installing an older version of the software.

Horrible and Not Worth a Penny!

Richard D. Cole, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera because the store I was in did not have the one I wanted and I figured I would give it a try. I returned it the next day. The biggest problem was that it would not stay in focus! It kept searching for focus and would not find it and would not stop.

Very disappointed

W. Flint, Amazon
26 November 2011
  • Summary: Up until now, the products we've purchased from Microsoft have been at least average quality. Not so with this camera. Not matter what we try, the camera autofocus will not hold a sharp picture and the image is almost constantly blurry. Recommend a less expensive version such as the 3000.

Does not work with XP SP3

Amazon Customer "Professional Geek ;o)", Amazon
2 April 2011
  • Summary: I was ready to really like this camera. Really, I was. Unfortunately, while the description says that it requires either Windows XP "SP2 or Later" (or Vista or Windows 7), what it appears to *actually* require is Windows XP SP2 - exactly. SP3 renders the camera unusable.

User Review

Гращенков Сергей, Yandex
26 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Своих денег не стоит. Полностью разочарован. Буду избавляться и покупать другую.
  • Pros: Хороший встроенный микрофон. Линза камеры защищена стеклом. Забавное ПО.
  • Cons: Авто фокус не может произвести фокусировку, всегда приходиться залезать в настройки и отключать его. Недавно заметил что перестала работать ещё какая то автоматика, периодически картинка становиться не естественной(цвет).
