Microsoft LifeCam VX-5500

Laura Star, Amazon
25 October 2010
  • Summary: We bought a pair; it is ok if you are computer saavy, but if you are not, forget it. It was difficult getting my spouse on board. Software updates demand a new full install at each instance, which for some odd reason wanted to always be automatic.

web cam

  • Summary: Many of the advertised features work only with MICROSOFT MESSENGER, they will not function with other messenger/phone programs. Without these advertised features it's just another plain web cam that could be purchased at half the price!

Blurry motion and awkward mounting on a monitor

Kris, Amazon

  • Summary: This webcam is very small and folds flat. It's a great idea for travelling with a laptop when you want to keep in touch with your Paltalk friends. Pros: Picture quality is excellent (see Cons). No focus needed.

A Good Standard Webcam

Thomas E. Tweedel, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: Microsoft VX-5500 This is the second Microsoft Webcam that I've gotten. The first being the VX-3000. While it is not substantially different I'm happy to see they made some refinements to the design of the button and the base. Overview- Physically it's a nice looking webcam.

Good performance but dodgy install with Vista

R. Bini, Amazon
12 July 2010
  • Summary: I got it working eventually, but the installation was a mess: Inserted the supplied disk and it took ages to go through the program while at the same time also downloading from the web. At the end the application worked solo, but would not work with Skype.
