Decent image quality, but autofocus ruins it

BlakLite, Amazon
13 March 2014
  • Summary: Every 10 seconds the autofocus makes a full sweep from near to far. This makes it impossible to watch the video feed for more than a couple minutes. After doing some research, it turns out this is a well-known flaw. Would not buy again.

Works fine for skype

  • Summary: It works fine for Skype. I have nothing to compare it with except some $20 units. It blows them out of the water, but that is not saying much.

Great quality and responsive

K. Reed "Redditor Extraordinaire", Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: Image quality is great, but I had to disable the auto-focus, as it tried to refocus every time I move more than an inch. No delay in the video feed, and lighting quality is better than expected.

great camera with better sound quality than most hd cams in it's pricerange

Angel Faith, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: it is used but workd better than my old logitech camera. it successfully streams in HD and wih bright lighting makes the image look flawless. The auto focus needs to be switched off but it stayed off for me after multiple uses after i clicked "apply' in the advanced settings console by Auto focus box. The audio is great for louder music as well as conversation, not good enough mic for music recording but loud background music is clear and crisp with this camera.

CHEAP!!!

gerardo rivera, Amazon

  • Summary: All I can say is that I hooked it up and it didn't work. I wrote to the people who sent it to me so that I could exchange it for a new one. But they just said, Keep it and we will refund your money!! They didn't even want to waste their time!!! No I would not recommend this and I would not buy anything from these people again. All I wanted was a new cam.

Nice Quality

Corey Graft "Corey G", Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: This is my first Microsoft product that i've bought in YEARS since I switched to Apple. However this cam had received great reviews online & you can't beat it for the price. So I snatched it up. Its very good quality for sure. Great for a YouTube vlog. It does tend to slow down my 2 year old laptop, but a modern desktop can handle it just fine!

It is not wireless as ordered

Habib Zogheib, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: I ordered a wireless web cam, but I got a cheap Microsoft one. I tested this cheap made webcam, I will not use again. I am thinking of returning it but I lost the receipt, so I put it in the junk drawer.
