  • Summary: I use this for Skype. It has a decent camera and a good microphone. Quick and easy to set up. Adjustable stand to hang over the top of a monitor or whatever. Price was pretty good too.

Good bargain

  • Summary: I ordered this webcam, based on some reviews and also I didn't want to buy a high end one. I found, the installation to be easy and the webcam has a very good clarity even in low light condition. I am very happy about this purchase and plan to buy one more for my parents. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cheap bargain.

A decent camera for the price

Andrew Won, Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera was decent quality - definitely not as good as a High Definition webcam. I had trouble keeping the camera attached to the screen of my laptop, as it fell off whenever I moved my laptop. The image quality was acceptable, but was often grainy and very slow - many of my webchats ended up being choppy. I suppose this low-quality camera would be a great buy if you don't want to feel self-conscious when you are webchatting.

Falling off laptop screen

T. Nguyen "mechguy", Amazon

  • Summary: The quality is good, but the leg is not so good. It doesn't have a strong grab on my laptop screen. Whenever I move, it falls off. If you're using webcam for your laptop and constantly on the go, try something else, like clip-on type.

Does the job

Kyster007, Amazon

  • Summary: We got this webcam so we could communicate with our family (who lives across the state) with video once our child was born, so that my parents could see their grandson as he grows. I have used it to Skype with my family and several friends around the country and world, and it works just fine.

  • Summary: This webcam is good, not great... for the price I expected it to stay put on my laptop but it wobbles and falls still. however I did put a piece of tape on the back that solves the problem. The CD i got was also faulty but I just downloaded the drivers from the Microsoft website. Good picture and sound quality. I guess I just expected good webcams to be cheaper...

  • Summary: This is a nice cam with some good features, too bad the Microsoft software does not install on Windows XP... but that is how it goes with Microsoft I think.

Apple iSight Envy

  • Summary: I have purchased a total of four Microsoft Lifecam VX-5000's for myself and family. It makes a great gift. The price is relatively low and it installs very easily. With Vista for sure you can plug it in and be video chatting within minutes without ever touching the CD Drawer. In many cases just plugging it in with XP is enough also, however on one install we had to use the supplied software.
