Summary: I find it annoying how some reviewers shower another brand/product with accolades that have nothing to do with the product being reviewed. Those products have their own section. And other reviewers who can't get a plug and play device to work properly on, perhaps, their extremely dated laptops.
Pros: I got this on a sale for half the price and free shipping, thanks NuevoHuevo! The picture quality is good enough under low or excess lighting. The push in/out lens feature is awesome and keeps it secure. The call button located on the top makes contacting my girl very easy. The cam comes with a m...
Cons: Price shot up again. I was hoping to get another for my girl, but it seems I might have to go fishing elsewhere.
Summary: If you plan to use it with a desktop, you will probably need to get an USB extention cable or hub. You also need come up with a means to mount it. A double-sided adhesive or epoxy, a piece of material to clip the camera on and some creativity.
Pros: Low price, high-quality, high resolution, built-in mic. Perfectly designed for use with laptops.
Cons: Only if you plan on using this with a desktop, this camera is designed primarily for laptops. The USB cable is very short and mounting clip won't open wide enough to put on a conventional desktop LCD monitor.
Summary: Don't buy this if you want to use on a desktop monitor unless you like Velcro and duct tape exposed.
Pros: I've had this installed on a Win XP laptop for two years now. Use it several times a week, never a problem. Great sound and video using Skype. It is definitely designed for a laptop, clips well on thinner top bezel. Wonderful little case for travel.
Pros: Nice small package, the video quality is good, get a great frame rate at 800 X 600 resolution. I have it installed under vista, which it does work in. Just went to the manufacturers websites /download page and found the model. It guided me to the correct driver fairly quickly and after the instal...
Cons: The driver install was lengthy, and this is meant to be used with laptops so it doesn't fit properly on the monitor but I knew that going into this. Just a word of warning for others. I used a USB extension cable I had laying around and it works great with that, just be warned.
Summary: OEM means just that; you'll get a well-packaged plastic bag with the camera and the instruction book/CD package, nothing more. However, if saving a dozen (or more) dollars is more important to you than a wrapper that you're gonna toss anyway, I'd highly recommend it. Oh yeah; Newegg Rocks!!
Pros: We purchased two of these little OEM beauties and are very happy with both of them. Say what you will about MS, they have setups down to a science. Keep in mind, these are for LAPTOPS; don't buy one for a desktop and expect to be happy. They are designed to be mounted on a LAPTOP screen and don't...
Summary: I got this little webcam from my son-in-law and daughter so that we could talk to the grandkids and see them too. I know absolutely nothing about web cameras, software, etc. My son-in-law was able to walk me through the set up and in 10 minutes, we were having a visual conversation. It works great.
Summary: LIFECAM NX-6000 Excellent Product --> Amazing clarity, Great Resolution. A must to have to bring families and friends closer..... ....... ....... ...... Negatives: hmmmmmm. . . . cudnt think of any at this stage. Just go ahead n buy this product and at such a great price, its a steal . . !!
Pros: Great Resolution. A must to bring families and friends closer.
Cons: hmmmmmm.... cudnt think of any at this stage
Summary: This is the first Microsoft webcam I have tried. Compared with Logitech or Creative webcam, this one is very small and thus suitable for travel. Its lens can be pushed inside and protected when not used, which is a very cute and favorable design.
Pros: Small size clear video and audio taking protected webcam lens
