Summary: I BOUGHT IT FOR THE PRICE.. I LIKED IT AT FIRST BUT AFTER USING IT FOR AWHILE THE CAMERA GETS HOTTER THAN A FIRE CRACKER. I WAS WORRIED IT WAS GOING TO BURN UP SO I SHUT IT DOWN AND GOT MY EL CHEAPO BACK OUT AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS BETTER THAN THIS CAM. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.
Summary: I had to replace my not-so-old Logitech webcam with something new, since it did not work under 64-bit Vista. The VX-7000 does work with 64-bit Vista, and was the highest quality camera Microsoft offered that would attach to my desktop monitor. (The supposedly higher resolution NX-6000 has a much smaller monitor connector, designed for notebook-thickness screens, but also boasts a better picture.
Summary: I bought this web cam after reading on Microsoft's web site that it is compatible with Windows 7 but I could not get it to work with Windows 7 at all. After several attempts and downloading latest driver, still no joy. I had to install it on a XP machine which works fine. So if you are buying for your Windows 7, then don't. Get a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 HD instead which is a little pricier but works fine.
Summary: L'obligation de passer par MSN pour activer les réglages est stupide. Encore un format propriétaire pour Microsoft. Elle ne fonctionne pas avec toutes les applications. Dommage car l'optique est bonne.
