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 @).
Worked great until it broke. Replacement unit broke too.

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

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.
Cons: This webcam lack the mirror function ( e.g if you raise your right hand, your viewers see as you raise your left). The image is flipped horizontally. It's very bad. Despite the plea from customers, MS still fail to solve this problem.
Pros: Great picture. When it works, it works beautifully. Problem is, I have a microphone that I use for my Fluenz software and that microphone refuses to work once this camera is installed. Unfortunately the USB microphone in the camera doesn't work in this instance. Also, after I installed this camer...
Cons: Had multiple issues with my computer after installing it.
