Works well on Mac with Mountain Lion

  • 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.

Great WebCam

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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.

Works fine w/XP SP3

Doug R., Newegg
11 June 2010
  • Summary: Hard to beat the newegg discounted price.
  • Pros: Works right out of the box with Office Communicator and Google Chat w/no need for the bundled software.
  • Cons: The instructions for the install say the software's necessary, but both the bundled CD and the latest version download from MS hung and wouldn't install (maybe it was due to our company firewall).

One of the best options

  • Summary: I use this cameras at work for communication and they work very well. They are compact and the built-in microphone is a major plus because that eliminates the hassle of having an additional wire.
