Summary: If you're going to read a review about the VX-6000, please note the date. The ones that praise it in 2006 aren't going to tell you what you need to know in the summer of 2008. The problem is the software is incredibly annoying. Microsoft still ships this webcam with LifeCam v.
Summary: I purchased this along with a nx-3000 for my wife's laptop. Honestly I feel the nx-3000 gives better picture quality and has a better built-in mic. This is a bit of a let down since this is the more expensive cam.
Pros: Easy to setup, integrates with LiveMeeting perfectly
Summary: I have bought the VX-3000, VX-6000 and the NX-6000. Buy the VX-3000 for $30-40 or the NX-6000 for $70-$100, but not this model. It really offers little over the VX-3000. Contrary to it's size, the little portable laptop version: NX-6000, has excellent features and pictures compared to the similarly...
Summary: After installing my new LifeCam VX-6000, I am disappointed in some of the areas of functioning and ease of use. Where do I start? 1. The cam will not "stay in one place" - it moves too easily 2.
Summary: * Save your money! But the VX-3000. The 5.0MP camera feature is more like a 1.3MP image. * Default resolution will be something like 640x480. You will need to adjust this before you trash it.
Pros: * Nice compact shape. * Reasonably long USB Cable (can fit ontop of my 20" monitor 30" over the groud with slack) * Somewhat sturdy design.
Cons: * Software install was not very clear on "what" you needed to use the camera. Look-out... because if you are not careful you are getting the LiVE toolbar which is NOT Needed. Also installed "camera" software is a little non-intuitive (and does not follow Microsoft UI Guidelines) * The ability to ...
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...
Summary: Some other reviews here had similar problems to mine. Please don't think we are bad mouthing Microsoft. The problems are ligit. Seems to only be an issue if you have other USB devices (like most of us). Bottom line the camera would not work.
Summary: Bought it locally, returned it in 3 days. Picture quality was fair, video quality was HORRIBLE. The sound doesn't sync with video, and the video is extremely choppy at anything past the smallest resolution. Purchased Logitech 5000Pro, works 1000 times better.
Cons: Picture quality, video quality, crashes yahoo/aim/msn messengers.
