Summary: This is a great product, and I fully enjoy it and it is used exactly how it said it would be and it works perfectly. Pros: - Good visual - Small - Works with all computers Cons: - The way it hooks on is kind of awkward - The software is slow and buggy Overall great.
Summary: We use it for skyping - works perfectly in this role. This is not a precision German optical instrument. it is a practical small camera that installs in one mintue and does the job. The MS brand ensures easy compatability with the rest of your software and MS operating systems.
Summary: This web cam is great, and very user friendly. Its perfect for chatting with friends via skype, but I do not reccomend using this for business purposes. The transmission is great, but if you want to exhibit professionalism in your communication delivery you may want to invest in a better product.
Summary: The product arrived in a bulk package and that was not specified on the web page, although the product was not damaged and is working. So, far so good. You defenitelly need to install the drive from the microsoft web site to ensure full functionality for XP at least.
Summary: The user software that the camera comes with dosnt have as many options as I would like, as far as creating backgrounds or adding character to a users face. But thats really not here nor there
Pros: Good quality, clear video, and great audio. This is an easy install and works better than I expected it to!
Cons: I dont like the button on the top of the camera that automaticly launches windows messanger if you touch it. When I adjust the camera sometimes I bump it and its kind of annoying...
Summary: I received one of the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 webcams from the Amazon Vine review program, which was welcome given that my wife was starting to ask about getting a webcam for her computer. I went ahead and installed it for her, and put it through some paces.
