almost great but I would get another one...

A. F. Usher, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Almost great... but you have no control over the white balance and the color, so all my items that are black come out looking a bit purple or grey (depending on the lightning), so if you wanted to show someone how, let's say a shirt looked, they wouldn't be able to see the true color of said item.

Cord was short

Jenni Croft, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: The camera was great but the cord to hook it to the computer is short. We had to buy a USB extension cord. I wish the cord were longer but the camera works great.

Not the best webcam

boilerjad, Amazon
17 June 2012
  • Summary: This webcam has slightly above average video with average software. It comes with many mounting options and each of them has challenges and/or drawbacks. Why doesn't the camera and/or the software allow this camera to be rotated in any direction?

Having some trouble

Nestegger, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I chose this Webcam because it is the same brand and look as one that I have just recently lost on a trip. I wanted something that would be very easy just to open and plug and play. This one plugs and plays, but the color of the image is all washed out and somewhat reddish in tone.

Poor color

creyente, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: Overall I like this webcam. It does the job--my family can see me and my baby when we video chat. However, the picture might as well be black and white. I searched online for a solution and many other people have the same problem and there is no solution.

Great but not for too long

Overstock
22 April 2010
  • Summary: This was an excellent product right out of the bag...I purchased this in 02/2010. It's now 04/22/10, and the camera still works but is glitchy. It works for 10 secs and freezes. I have tried it on my desktop which is running off of windows7 and the camera is simply not compatible with the system.

Okay, but didn't work with my Skype

Katrina R., Amazon
14 March 2010
  • Summary: Just bought this to use on a 2 year old laptop running Vista. I wanted to use it with Skype, so I installed the latest version. The camera itself worked okay, but after 15 - 30 sec of a video call on Skype, the image would freeze.

I got a defected camera

TC, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: The reason I say defect is because resolution was great, sound was great, camera quality suck. Grays were black, Reds were light Pink..it was all bad. Lights were coming in and out and I'm black but i had Micheal Jackson's complexion in this camera.

Should have been better

Kindle Customer, Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: As web-cams go the "Microsoft LifeCam Show" falls in the middle of the pack somewhere. As is often the case with Microsoft hardware the basic design and intended functionality is very good. But as is also often the case with MS products, what is delivered falls well short.
