Microsoft life camVX800 driver not working.

Christopher Pilcher, Amazon
28 June 2015
  • Summary: It worked for a while but now only works on Skype. Like others who complain I get the message a" camera is not detected". I tried all the stated remedies - nothing makes it work. I've looked on the Microsoft download site but there are only PDFs of specs to download - no drivers.

  • Summary: For a microsoft product at $40, knowing how it performs, I would never pay that kind of money. This camera should be sold for $20, maximum. I actually picked this up with my NCIX points for my parents. Glad I did.
  • Pros: Mic, small shape, nice look
  • Cons: performance is very standard for $40.

Good for the money.

  • Summary: I purchased this webcam to hang up on the wall as a security camera so that if no one is in my office, I just record that way I know that if someone was in my office. I am giving this a 4 star instead of a 5 is because the FPS (Frames Per Second) is horrible.

No Software with camera, horrible tech support

Jeff Valentine, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera to use as a stand alone webcam, but it is a plug and play only unit. Microsoft has no software to use with the camera, and there is nothing on windows 7. So you have to either download software, or use it with a service like SKYPE.

Works Great!

  • Summary: for my needs. After years with this and no problems, I do need to upgrade to a more expensive one because it just doesn't always deliver the clarity I need talking long distance and I'm talking LONG DITANCE! Good enough to give to grandchildren as first Skype cam. Excellent for the price!

  • Summary: This item worked fine for 3 months, then it stopped working. Tried it on another computer and no changes! What a waste of money.
