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: 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: The Microsoft webcam works well visually, but the microphone was faulty on both the original and its replacement. Only difference was that sound was intermittent with the first one and totally inoperative with the replacement. Avoid this one.
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: 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: All seemed ok at first, but the sound unknown to me was poor and intermittant, I thought it was the soft ware and put up with it for quite a while . Then checking on YouTube this is a common fault with the microphone , so I bought a Logitech which is brilliant and dumpted the LifeCam.
Summary: I bought this expecting brilliant quality. However it was more annoying than great. The picture quality was very bad. I used this alongside my sister's cheap tesco one and was very disturbed to find out that hers was actually better! So I would not recommend this one if you are expecting the best.
