4 out of 5 eggsMSN LifeCam

Pros: Works great with Google Chat, and any most other video programs. good mic, good picture quality.

Cons: I don't like the fact that powering it up through the on device button, forces you to have Microsoft Instant messenger.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking perfectly after 2 years!

Pros: -Clear picture
-Easy to use software
-Stylish
-Flexible stand

Cons: -Resource demanding software (Requires at least a 3.0GHz Wolfdale dual core, brought my old 2.60GHz Wolfdale dual core to its knees. )
-Microphone is a little cheap, but still works fine
-Windows Live button is pointless (works, but who uses Windows live anymore?)
-Doesn't like other software

Other Thoughts: It's a nice camera, really. It's the best webcam I have ever used, actually. The video quality surpasses nearly every laptop one out there. Most of the cons will only matter to people who needed those features, but is perfectly fine for the average joe.

I received this as a gift in 2010, back when this was priced at $80.

Works 100% fine on Windows 7 x64 (SP1 and no SP).

I love this thing.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Clear picture, widesceen, auto focus technology.

Cons: A bit tricky to get the white balance correct, Windows Live Messenger call button doesn't seem to work but that's a non-issue as I don't use it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great video quality, I'm happy with this

Cons: Kinda delicate. I dropped it once from about 1-1.5 feet in the air and now there is a white line across the top of any recording I do. :(

5 out of 5 eggsFocus Problems? Give it a whack!

Pros: Nice camera, decent microphone, autofocus is decent when it works, auto picture adjustments are good for low-light environments.

Cons: When I first installed the camera, everything more than three inches away from the lens was blurry, with or without autofocus. After some research, I found that someone fixed the problem by hitting the camera on their desk a few times! I thought "why not, I will have to return it anyway" so I gave it a shot, and it worked! I guess the focus mechanism is sort of locked in place at the factory sometimes, and knocking it around a bit loosens it up and allows it to work. So if you are having focus issues, give it a whack!
