Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000

PC Magazine

  • Summary: The Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 is a great webcam with a range of video settings from 160 x 120 up to 640 x 420 resolution.

Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 webcam

Pocket Lint
9 January 2009
  • Conclusion: It is a compact and smart looking little webcam that copes well with the demands of general webcam usage, from recording short internet videos, to chatting on Skype. Problems with the quality are pretty common to webcams and things are not so different here. But sadly we cannot recommend this for those on the move because of the frustrations with getting it stable on the lid of a notebook.
  • Pros: Size, good build quality, indicator light
  • Cons: Stand not great for laptops, struggles with bright light and contrasty scenes
