It worked as long as I didn't have webcam on my notebook

Summary: This webcam did it work for a very long time, eventually the clip maintaining the camera of falling off the monitor broke and the camera kept working for almost another year. I think I still have it somewhere.
Summary: I had to upgrade cameras when I loaded Windows 7 on my PC. This camera does work with Windows 7 64 bit though it took two tries to get the correct driver from the Microsoft Web Site -- and that was allowing MS to 'allegedly' select the correct version, so don't give up if it doesn't work the first time. So far the image quality in video mode is only fair, grainer than I like, but it could be a lighting or setting issue that I have yet to resolve.
Summary: The Windows 7 install was easy, and the camera's menu is simple and intuitive. However, after upgrading from the VX3000, I expected a better picture quality than 800 x 600. I mean it is ok but kinda grainy and the colors seem off a bit. I also own a VX6000 and the picture quality vs the VX7000 is about the same. For the cost of this web cam you can purchase a Logitech Pro 9000 and get much better results. That's exactly what I plan to do.
Summary: I bought this product on the strength of the previous Microsoft products that I have owned as well as the fact that the price was good. I was disappointed with the picture quality in low light conditions. Compared to a Logitech C250 which I own and which is a much cheaper model, the picture quality in low light was bad. Other than that the auto focus works well and the sound quality is really good.
Summary: As far as quality goes this is a great camera, but as far as style its shaped abit awkward and i found it difficult to use. I turned around and sold it for half of what i paid for it. Oh well u win some, u lose some!!
Summary: Length:: 1:56 Mins This video was shot on the Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 with the included software. It works great for video chatting, but if you're looking for high-quality picture, this is not the one to get.
Summary: Over all this webcam actually help me with what I really needed it for. However, picture quality wasn't exactly what I had expected. I works very well and a lot better than my previous one. It was quite an upgrade for me actually, but the picture settings for the camera was a bit hard to adjust. Maybe I was just used to the way my other camera set up. And it doesn't work very well in low light, no matter how much you adjust the settings.
Summary: I'm new to the webcam world but have viewed other webcams. I had high expectations with Microsoft's currently 'best available' webcam. The camera does come through in a few important areas: Image quality is VERY good and auto-focus works great. This cam works great in rooms with low light. The UI (User Interface) is easy and quick to make sense. The only down-side is trade-off between image quality and frame-rate.
Summary: If you wanted to use the excellent NX-6000 but were put off by that webcam's small clip (it's really meant for notebook screens only, even desktop LCD's are too big) then this is the model you are looking for - almost. While the NX-7000 has a far more flexible stand (it will work on top of about any monitor and even folds in to a desktop configuration) it doesn't have the slide-out camera feature of the NX-7000, nor for that matter any way of physically blocking the lens...
