Works well on Mac with Mountain Lion

MaryLee Perkins, Amazon
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my son's older Windows laptop, but found that it works well on the Mac mini in my office. The audio is very good and those who see me via Skype say that the picture is good. Now son has a new laptop with a built in camera, and I get to keep this Lifecam Vx-5500.

DON'T DO IT !!!

Nicholas J. Koppy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this webcam a few days ago, based on the strength of its positive reviews. Not sure if I got a defective example or if the thing is actually THIS bad. It WON'T white-balance!

Image flickers

Cheng, Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I followed the instruction to install the software and connect the webcam. But the image I got from the webcam flickered, regardless of which messenger I used (e.g., Windows Live, Gmail, and Skype). I went to Microsoft's support website and downloaded the update, which did not solve the problem.

Great WebCam

Anonymous, Newegg
18 November 2010
  • Summary: The instructions say you need to install the software before plugging in the webcam. This is not true. It works fine with the plug and play Windows drivers.
  • Pros: This webcam is excellent quality at a good price. The stand should work on pretty much any monitor, and the cord is nice and long. The plug and play worked perfectly for me on Windows XP. There was no need to use the installation disk. I have used it with an instant messaging site called QQ, and ...
  • Cons: I should have bought a webcam sooner.
