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
Summary: The VX-5500 is a basic little webcam that offers decent sound and image quality. It’s not the most versatile webcam on the market, but it gets the job done for a semi-reasonable price. Of course, the same thing can be said of every other Microsoft model. A less than essential purchase.
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
