Microsoft Life Cam VX 5500 Review
26 March 2009
Summary: Overall, the Life Cam VX 5500 comes across as a decent audio-visual solution for people who want to flaunt their style in basic utility peripherals. However, remember that it doesn't have features like manual focusing and motion detection, which other manufacturers (Logitech and Creative) are incorporating in their webcams in the same price range.
Summary: The Microsoft
LifeCam VX-5500 is a great mobile or desktop webcam that has good picture
quality. Many webcams will not work well in lowlight but the VX-5500 works well
in many lighting situations. With excellent video software and many features,
the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5500 is a great product for webcam activities. The
LifeCam is user friendly and priced nicely and is a good pick for users who are
ready for a good webcam.
Pros: Simple Install, Small and easy to position, User friendly
Excerpt: If Hollywood’s leading men were reincarnated into webcams (in a Cyberpunk alternate reality, say), the LifeCam VX-5500 would be Matthew McConaughey. Like the prodigious rom-com beefcake, it’s bland, slightly overpriced for what it offers, but good-looking enough to coast by on charisma alone. We’re also pretty sure that chicks will dig it.
Pros: Good low-light performance, 3-D face-tracking, appealingly low-key design
Cons: Only suited to flat surfaces, face plates are a bit bland, incompatible with Macs
