Cord was short

Jenni Croft, Amazon

  • 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.

Poor color

creyente, Amazon

  • 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. Under "properties," "hue" "white balance" and "color enable" are all disabled and there is no way to adjust these settings, which seems to be the root of the problem.

Great but not for too long

  • 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. I then hook it up to my laptop which runs off of xp, and its still glitchy! Excellent quality video...but only when it works!!!!

Should have been better

Kindle Customer, Amazon
6 January 2009
  • 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. What's in the box: One of the best aspects of this camera is its physical design. The camera its self is oval and about 1 x 2 inches. It's about a quarter of an inch thick.

Easy to use, comes with a lot of fun features but for it's price under lowlight conditions is where the LifeCam underperforms

Dennis A. Amith (kndy), Amazon

  • Summary: With the webcam war between Microsoft and Logitech, Logitech has so far been on top with its quality web cameras especially in low light conditions and video quality. This time around, the Microsoft LifeCam Show is now available with it's thin and sleek design. The LifeCam show comes with a 1 ft. stand, a magnetic stick and also a clip on for laptops.

It's ok...nothing outstanding

Jenny, Amazon
17 July 2011
  • Summary: I'm a little disappointed considering the good reviews from this. I had the Lifecam-VX 2000 before this and there's not that much difference between the two in my opinion. Visually, the Lifecam show is better, although it goes a bit funny in brightly lit rooms, but audio wise they're pretty similar. As mentioned in the other reviews, the USB wire is TINY!

  • Excerpt: Камера очень приятная и удобная, наличие ножки и нескольких креплений большой плюс. Тем кому не надо большое разрешение и есть деньги, брать советую.
  • Pros: 1) хорошая комплектация: длиннкая (сантиметров 25-30) подставка, 2 крепления на поверхности (липучки), прищепка на экран ноутбука (на обячный монитор скорее всего не налезет, маленькая) 2) удобство крепления - сама камера крепится к держателям посредством магника (в камере есть 2 круглых углублуния - спереди и сзади, к самой камере магнит и при подносу к держателям они мпримагничивуются к ней, крепится мягко но достаточно надежно. 3) качество картинки не плохое. 4)Отм...
  • Cons: 1) Написано на коробке запись видео с разрешением 2 мегапикселя, ничего подобного!!! всего лишь 800*600!!! двух мегапиксельный там лишь сенсор. 2) Зум работает только при 640*480.

webcam

agnès, Amazon

  • Summary: Très bonne qualité d'image, envoie rapide, mais cable de la webcam beaucoup trop court. Je ne sais pas quoi dire d'autre, c'est pénible de forcer les gens à écrire un roman.
