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. Several people in my company have these same cameras and everybody likes them, but I'm the only person using it on a Mac.

Hello China...

  • Summary: Bought this when my son moved to China for a year so we could still communicate online. Had no complaints and it worked fine for what I purchased it for. Installation/set-up was a breeze.

A good basic webcam

Athos, Amazon

  • Summary: this webcam is a great buy if like me, all you want is to video chat with your family and friends, but you don't care if it's an HD picture. the microphone does pick up some background sound though. my friend sometimes complain they can hear others talking.

Great sound, picture, and video

Spice, Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: I am thrill to buy such a very nice webcam at an affordable price. The box recommended using a Core-Duo CPU and up. But, my old Pentium IV 3.0GHz with HyperThread enabled and 3 GB of RAM can handle it just fine. My DSL Internet speed is only 3MB. The webcam is put together nicely and doesn't feel cheap. The USB cable from the webcam is about 6 ft long I think. It has a built in Mic on the camera. I use the free chat service at [...] for video chat.

MicroSoft LifeCam VX-5500

JC, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: I use the webcam so I can talk with my daughter who is away at college. It was easy to install & easy to use. We use it mainly for phone calls, even though its packed with features that allow you to do so much more. Great resolution and sound quality considering how inexpensive it was.

Good for novices

cacustomer, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: We are technologically naive and are first time Skype and webcam users so we asked for recommendations from friends. Our friends suggested the VX-3000 and 5000, but based on portability (we only have a laptop), we selected the VX-5500. The webcam was easy to install and folds flat so it's convenient to take traveling. The picture is not of the highest quality, but it's sufficient for conversations with relatives.
