PC Magazine
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Microsoft's high-end webcam delivers midrange performance and features. Most users will be happier with competing models from Creative and Logitech.
  • Pros: Compact design. Plays nicely with Windows Live Messenger. Noise-canceling microphone. Bundled software simplifies basic functions like video recording and blogging.
  • Cons: Boring looks. Limited range of movement. Slow, inaccurate white balance. Lame batch of special effects. Mediocre image quality.

  • Excerpt: During my testing phase, the camera sat on my second monitor and ended up pointing toward the window. It's winter time here now and quite a bit of light comes through this window. The camera performed very well, exposing my face so I could be seen easily.
  • Pros: Good image in bright and room level lighting, Decent sharpness at all resolutions, High resolution
  • Cons: Requires drivers to be installed (not USB video class), Windows XP and Vista only, not 2000, Grainy in low light, Tended to be a bit green in the evening

  • Summary: The Lifecam VX-7000 offers a reasonable performance in most areas, but $150 is a pretty big ask for a webcam; particularly when some of its premium features don't work properly. Only consider buying if you're a Windows Live fan.
  • Pros: Arresting design, easy setup, can be mounted on a variety of surfaces
  • Cons: 2Mp video lags badly, certain features only work with Windows Live Messenger

  • Summary: It is described as a notebook web cam, I see no reason why it should not be used with any flat panel and even with a CRT monitor, the latter maybe with a couple of sticky pads.

  • Conclusion: Pomimo tego, że producent ostrzega, aby najpierw zainstalować dołączone oprogramowanie a dopiero potem podłączyć kamerę, LifeCam VX-7000 działa w systemie Ms. Vista bez konieczności instalowania sterników. Warto je jednak zainstalować, bo dodają możliwość zastosowania filtrów graficznych, robienia zdjęć w wysokiej rozdzielczości, możliwość wygodnego rejestrowania obrazu, wysyłania zarejestrowanego materiału pocztą.
  • Pros: Dodatkowe efekty graficzne, Automatyczne ustawianie ostrości, Uniwersalna podstawka
  • Cons: Słaba wydajność, Obraz trochę nieostry

  • Excerpt: Kipróbáltuk a Microsoft legújabb webkameráját, ami egész jó minőségű fotókat csinál, kár, hogy nincs az a csetszoftver, ami rajongana a két megapixeles állóképekért.
