Really Really Bad

Hamado, B&H Photo
12 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm living and studying overseas and Skype and Zoom are a good way to keep in touch with my family and friends back home. This is why I've bought 4 Microsoft LifeCam Studio cams to use them (bought 2 of them 2 yrs ago from B&H, then I bought 2 from a seller on @). They are/were excellent when they've worked.
  • Cons: Driver Keeps Crashing

Great at first, then makes me want to trash it after a month

Allen, Amazon

  • Summary: Was by far the best webcam i have ever had....for about a month. It starts to act funny on Skype and show me as a tinted green monster or it doesn't turn on at all. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone if its usefulness turns horrible after a month.

Worked great until it broke. Replacement unit broke too.

Todd Harrison, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I got the Microsoft LifeCam Studio from a local store and it worked great for about a week then completely stopped working. I took it back and order two from Amazon. Both ran very hot and you feel you could burn your fingers when you move it, it has a metal case. One unit broke after 2 weeks. The 2nd is still working but running hot, not as hot as the one the already broke but hot enough to think it will fail soon. To bad because when they work they are amazing.

Not worth it

KURTIS T WALTHER, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I was disappointed with this purchase. I had a logitech camera but it was not compatible with my new windows 8 pc so I bought this. The price was the same as the Logitech but the quality and features did not come close. Going back to Logitech.

Bad pic qual, don´t work really on Mac

EB, B&H Photo
8 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The fist product I´ve bought at b&h I´m not happy with. I have given away it, in case of to high freight charges to send back to US from EU. The missing information is, that the cam are not working with a Mac (I have really checked it in front of my order) as a plug and play. The standard view is overexposed and unusable. So you need an additional software, than you can get an usable picture. The resolution of HD is far away. I have done it with "webcam settings".
  • Pros: Cheap Works Only On Win
  • Cons: An App Needed For Mac

  • Summary: It came with no instructions about how to set it up or use it and no disk for the software. I had a devil of a time getting it to work and still don't know how to adjust the settings or anything.

It's not worth the effort

Mason, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying this; the video quality of the camera is nice. It shoots at a good 720p, no issues with lighting, etc. However, the setup for this camera is just absolutely not worth the time. It took me a solid 3 or 4 days to get it working, and not even properly at that. There were issues with it not being picked up with its own software! It would crash Skype video calls, sometimes my livestreaming software, who knows.

The device was advertized as NEW but it did not work properly.

Richard L Stafford, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: The dealer treated me as if I were an idiot when I told them the camera did not work properly. They did not offer to replace it, which would have been desirable to returning it for credit. The dealer REQUIRED that I pay for return shipping before they would refund. All in all I would not contemplate making another purchase from this company.
