DON'T DO IT !!!

Nicholas J. Koppy, Amazon
31 May 2012
  • 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.

Not good with Windows XP

DJ, Amazon
17 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this webcam based on good reviews listed. I have Windows XP (SP2) and I had the same issues as another reviewer with XP who said it 'stalled' their computer and they thought maybe it was their internet service.

Sonia Reece, Amazon

  • Summary: To Perspective LifeCam buyers, I never received this item. After two weeks of not receiving this item as a gift for my parents, I contacted customer service. They sent me a quick response stating that they would investigate the issue.

What a mistake buying the VX-5500

Ronald L. Tarwater "WebCambust", Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: The reviews I read on the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5500 convinced me that it was far and away the webcam to buy. In fact I bought three of them. Two for family elsewhere. After a week of trying; loading and downloading; deleting and reloading 5 times, I have yet to see the parties on the other side.
