No audio

Robert L. Scott, Amazon
20 April 2011
  • 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: The video quality is no better than on a webcam I bought for a girlfriend 8 years ago. The picture is grainy and not much different than the dumpy camera on my cell phone. This is not the webcam you're looking for.

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000

CK7503, Rate it all!
8 December 2008
  • Summary: This product is not even worthy of the one star I gave it. I just bought this for my parents computer because it was a good price. Now I know why. They shouldn't even give it away! It wasn't ready for the market. I have the Logitech 9000 and I recommend this. The Lifecam software never installed. I had to go online and then it didn't install properly. After 2 hours of fooling around, it is going back. This was a waste of my time and money.

Ripoff with poor CCD and slow software

Daniel, Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: I paid $50 for this camera but it is probably worth $10. The Windows software is slow and "heavy" and the CCD is very noisy, equivalent to the low end models in the market. Stay away from this camera and go for a Logitech model (which I use at work and is very crisp and clean). Also, stay away from this if you use Linux (nobody would expect otherwise, I believe) - it doesn't work at all.

Proof that the top-of-the-line cam belongs at the bottom of the line.

Roman Pennington, Amazon
14 September 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this cam from CompUSA last week and it's simply not worth the money. Ironically, from the picture you can see why. See the shiny plastic over the lens? Well if you like lens flare, you will LOVE this camera because in the presence of any bright non-heavily-diffused lights, you're going to get lens flare-o-plenty. The software that comes with this camera is also buggy.

Software and installation issues, buyer beware

S. Wilson, Amazon
22 October 2006
  • Summary: My family and I just relocated 3 states away from our extended family and wanted to get a good webcam to keep in touch with everyone and let our 2 year old see his grandmother once and a while. When I saw the Microsoft LifeCam at Target stores and that it was compatible with Windows Live I thought it would be worth the $100 price tag to be able to keep in touch with family. I purchased the software and started the installation process on my computer.

I Wish I had Taken Review by John Daniels Seriously!!!

Colin Smith, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: I needed a web cam in a hurry having broken the stand of my trusty cheapo Phillips model and the review by John Daniels was 18 months old and so I figured problems all cleared up by now - May 2009.So how wrong could I be? 100% as it turned out.PLEASE READ HIS REVIEW AND BELIEVE!! Experienced exactly same problems, tried exactly same solutions, got exactly same result . . zilch!
