Gets the job done.

Summary: The small size of this cam makes it great for small desk/work spaces which is nice. The color is less than great as it lacks depth and the image is usually somewhat grainy. The movement tracking is smooth; only chopping happens if you are running too many things and slow the computer as a whole down. End result? It gets the job done but if you want something with high graphical clarity look elsewhere.
Summary: The microphone doesn't work. It did when it was new but then for somereason it quit working. There are lots of persons with similiar problems and apparently microsoft has no solutions for this. I've found a lot of complaints about this on line. I have windows vista 32 bit and this is a microsoft webcam. Should be no problem.

Summary: I bought this Microsoft LifeCam VX-600 Web Camera . It works perfect . I like it very much , it is compact, fits perfect on top of my computer screen or on my computer desk. I do wish the colors would be more vivid and life like . Other than that I like my Microsoft LifeCam VX-600 Web Camera . I recommend this webcam to everyone .
Summary: I've had a number of video-cams over the years. This one is the best. I use it all the time on Skype. Even if I don't use the video, I use the microphone to make calls and they sound quality is just great. I'm getting ready to order another one of these for my office.
Summary: Everything worked when I first installed the camera, but the next day the builtin microphone stopped working. I called MicroSoft tech support, and they sent me a new camera. This one works just fine. They let me keep the old one.
Microsoft Life Cam VX-6000 is well worth the extra dollars.

Summary: After having received a Microsoft Life Cam VX-3000 I purchased a VX-6000 life Cam and have been very satisfied with it. This last Microsoft Life Cam VX-6000 was purchased for one of our daughters and I can see the difference that the VX-6000 makes over some of the more expense Life Cam both of these Microsoft Life Cams were purchased from Amazon.
Summary: I love my little tiny camera. My husband who has never seen his third granddaughter, now visits with her every day. He does not fly and she lives in Oregon. He can read her stories and tell her jokes. It is wonderful! No problem to set up and it takes up very little space The picture is good, the sound is excellent, it is easy to call, and it does not cost anything , What a great Christmas present for the whole family.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews before I bought this camera. I have VISTA so the software that came with it did not work. I had to go download VISTA compatible software from the Microsoft website. It wasn't as easy as it sounded..... but I'm no techie. Once that was done I skipped all the Microsoft Messenger stuff, turned on Skype and it worked!! I don't have anything against the Messenger, I just did not want to have to learn something new and I like Skype.
Summary: This is a nice camera and works very well with Skype. However, it is wide angle, and claims to have a digital zoom feature. Unfortunately, the digital zoom works only with the Microsoft application and is not part of the basic camera controls, so it cannot be used when the camera is used with Skype.
