3 out of 5 eggsGood for it's time

Pros: - This was purchased back in '09, when hd cam availability was low and pricey, it was a great purchase and worked well.

Cons: - Flaky and lagy video
- bad pictures
- bottom piece that held the cam together broke off after 1 year with minimal use

Other Thoughts: - What can you expect from an old cam, atleast it worked and did its job for some time...

2 out of 5 eggsyou get what you pay for

Pros: It works

Cons: Had to move lighting around the cam area for it to pick up a decent picture. The webcam on my laptop was a lot better, all the images on this camera were extremely dark.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small
Great stand
Great Mic

Cons: Doesn't seem to do HD

Other Thoughts: We've been using these cams for Skype with grandparents for a few years now. The mic works well, it works with varying light levels. The stand is very versatile.

1 out of 5 eggsVX3000 Turned out to be a VX1000

Pros: First things first When I did get the Camera working after 2 hours it was good. But beyond that read Below.

Cons: Well the BLOAT WARE that came in the software was gigantic. Then when it came time to plug the Camera In. Well lets just say that it was an EYE Opener. I watched as the system found the Camera on the USB 2.0 Connector. What I saw Shocked me. It showed that the Camera WASN'T A VX3000 but a VX1000. So I took out the BLOAT WARE from my entire system including the USB DRIVERS. Downloaded the New Drivers from Microsoft and then ran the Program again. Even the new Drivers still said that the Camera was a VX1000 instead of the VX3000 that it was. I even tried it on 3 other computers to make sure that I didn't do any thing wrong. It still said VX1000. I then contacted Microshlock. They told me that it would replace the Camera but with one Problem. THEY DON'T MAKE THE VX3000 ANY MORE. They said that they would give me a "" Lifecam HD-3000 "" For Free. So I took them up on it. But I don't know when it will get to me. Also Don't you try to get a FREE CAMERA REPLACEMENT it was a ONE TIME DEAL.

Other Thoughts: If you get this camera be prepaired to do alot of Home work on your System. You will need it. Do to getting all of the Software deleted from your Computer. It took me almost 2 hours to find and get rid of all the Bloat ware. On my 500gb drive it has 430gb used and it had the Bloat ware put in or on files that it wasn't supposed to be. So DON'T BUY THE CAMERA.

2 out of 5 eggsGood for picture in skype, that's it

Pros: can put on top of a laptop screen?
Usable with skype, chatroulette, etc.

Cons: Not very stable, bad resolution, bad software, and AWFUL mic.

Other Thoughts: If you just want something to use with skype, chatroulette, or other small video related things, it might work fine. But the mic doesn't not capture sound almost at all, so you're stuck with using something else.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got this from a friend and it works just fine for a basic camera, it does well in all light conditions and was very easy to install on XP. I also like the manual focus ring.

Cons: can't handle movement well, but nothing big for an intro-level camera.

Other Thoughts: I've never had anyone complain about the mic, and I don't have any dead pixels, but it's a basic product and maybe quality control is lax, all I know is that mine works fine.
