Color issues

Robert, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: For some reason, it makes everything look colored off. I tried to adjust the settings, but it wouldn't let me. I looked purple, yellow, blue, but rarely my true colors in it. People said it looked like I was in a club with party lighting.

More "meh" for your money.

Billy Pilgrim, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: Two stars because it works. Two stars because it works a lot worse than anticipated. The megapixel ratings on this camera lead me to believe that it would produce quality video. It does not. At best, it's a little better than the first webcam I bought almost 15 years ago. As you can see in the picture the cord comes out from the bottom...

Defective

Icicle, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I had one of these for approximately four years, before it finally crapped out on me. I ordered another of the same camera, and it arrived defective, with all the color levels permanently faulty. So, I returned it and ordered a Logitech webcam, which is working well and has more functions than this one.

Keeps changing color!!

Ida Kwong, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: I believe the one I got was a defect product. The video quality isn't bad but the color is very unstable. I can't adjust the color or the brightness to get the right value. If that doesn't happen this would be an excellent cam.

Neeaahh

Red 6, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Arrived pretty fast. Disk would not load on Windows 8. Had to go online to and force the download and install to get it to work. Clip would not work on my monitor. Still will see how it goes. Bottom line get a different one that will load up on Windows 8 better.

Not for me

Patricia A. Erwin, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: This webcam worked on my Windows XP program a few times and quit. I have a Windows 7 now and specifications indicate compatability. However, even after loading the software, I couldn't figure out how to get to work. Gave up and bought a different webcam.

Really frustrating

Jay, Amazon
2 December 2010
  • Summary: The good part is: The picture quatlity is good. Sound quality is good. Has options that it can be used with laptop and with a destop since it comes with a stand. The bad part is: The software installation took more than half an hour. When using for more than an hour, the video goes off and displays a message "your camera is already in use" eventhough there is no other aplication using the wecam. Disconnecting and reconnecting the cam didnt work.

Color Flickering that was Unacceptable

L. Lee "Nerdboy", Amazon
10 May 2010
  • Summary: When will I learn? The software install caused me to have to reinstall Win 7 because it caused USB hub device faults every few seconds. This camera is nicely made but the color balance flickered every few seconds making the device useless. Tried 3 different Microsoft Cams and they each exhibited some unacceptable hardware or software problem. Lifecam Cinema, and 5000HD high end cams too were useless and also produced problems. All of these models drag down the CPU.

Leider nicht so wie erwartet !

Thommy, Amazon
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Von der Microsoft LifeCam habe ich mehr erwartet , weil es Modelle von anderen Anbietern gibt , die weitaus besser in der Bildqualität und auch noch billiger sind. Wer ein Bild mag , das sehr lilafarbig angehaucht ist , ist mit dieser Kamera gut beraten. Wer noch keine andere Cam hatte wird sicher zufrieden sein , weil man noch nichts Besseres gesehen hat. Die Bildfarbe ist einfach nicht akzeptabel auch nicht für diesen Preis.
