  • Excerpt: I was surprised with the image quality in good lighting. Quite comparable with many of the other brands for the same price. While it does have good low light sensitivity, I was disappointed in the image quality with only my 7 watt reflector lamp (listed as no lights).
  • Pros: Image sensor 1280x1024, Good quality image, Good low light sensitivity
  • Cons: A bit fuzzy in very low light, Only works with Windows XP or later

  • Conclusion: This is a reasonably priced webcam with some nice features, including face-tracking, but we wish the built-in mic worked better.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use. Works with all major instant-messaging clients. Includes pan, tilt, and zoom control.
  • Cons: Doesn't work consistently with every messaging client. Mic volume needs to be turned up high in order to pick up sound.

  • Pros: Excellent image quality in outdoor environments, impressive integrated microphone, easy to set-up and use
  • Cons: Average image quality in office environment, below average in dim lighting, little expensive

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Review

29 September 2006
  • Excerpt: We look at this high resolution webcam that allows one-button blogging and video calls over the Internet.
  • Pros: High resolution and good picture quality;, Snaps to any monitor;, manual focus adjustment;, wide angle lens;, built-in microphone., :
  • Cons: Higher resolution should be available to third party programs;, Sometimes it throws an exception when the program using the webcam closes (although v1.2 does it a lot less than v1.0 did).

Test : Microsoft LifeCam VX6000

  • Conclusion: Au niveau des défauts, on notera un micro complètement foireux, oui oui le son est des plus saccadés avec des grésillements « inside », oui oui, vous savez, comme quand vous passez sous un tunnel avec votre GSM, sauf que là, c’était tout le temps :/ Une des innovations de ces nouvelles webcam est le...

15 January 2007
  • Summary: Dans ce petit test nous avons pu découvrir une webcam techniquement réussie. La LifeCam VX-6000 de Microsoft est en effet bien mieux lotie que de nombreuses autres webcams avec son capteur 1.3MP non interpolé.

2 October 2006
  • Summary: Billedkvaliteten er forrygende, og hvis der er lys nok, leverer VX-6000 et billede, der lige så godt kunne have været taget med et rigtigt kamera. Selv i dunkel kontorbelysning en sen aften er billedet i orden om end lidt mere kornet i det.
  • Pros: Installation, Godt billede, LifeCam-programmet
  • Cons: Kan ikke zoome eller facetracke i højeste opløsning, Meget let og ustabilt
