3 out of 5 eggsWorked ok with Windows 7

Pros: The picture looks great! Worked with out issue on Windows 7. It also worked on Skype and Google Hangouts.

Cons: Struggled to make it work on Windows 8.1. I ended up installing the Windows 7 drivers in Windows 7 compatibility mode and also the software in Windows 7 compatibility mode. This got it up - sort of. The video won't record correctly and the special features, silly hats and what-not, don't work. It did work with Skype though so I got my use from it.

Other Thoughts: I would avoid this model now that I know what kind of headache it lead to.

4 out of 5 eggs'Tis A Good Camera

Pros: The Microsoft Lifecam Studio for Business boasts high quality outputs and it does exactly that.

Cons: The only cons so far is that every once in a while when starting the software to record, it's not found and you have to unplug it then plug it back in.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: The video quality is great, and it picks up movement better than most webcams. The flexible camera mount is really well made, and helps when adjusting to where ever you mount it. The overall design is well thought, and looks really nice. The usb cable is also a good legnth reaches the back of my desktop on the floor all the way to the top of my monitor on my desk easily.

Cons: The mic quality isn't the best obviously, and the Microsoft software doesn't go too in depth with adjusting how you want to camera. The flicker can be a little annoying, and there's slight discoloration I've noticed. The Auto Focus I've had to disable because it often will refocus when it's completely uneeded. These all combined were my reasons for removing one egg.

Other Thoughts: If the mount could not only bend on one axis that'd be great!

1 out of 5 eggsBait and switch?

Pros: First feature is: "1080p HD Sensor
For superior sharpness and image quality"

Cons: But you cant use it's 1080P functionality without whatever software they want you to buy. The following is the asterisks next to the first feature of 1080p - *Popular video call services support VGA resolution-not 1080p. 1080p HD recording requires: commercial video software (not included)"

Other Thoughts: When your first feature of the product is a half truth, it makes me wonder what else you are hiding about this camera Microsoft.

4 out of 5 eggsUse USB active extendewr to keep it active

Pros: This lifecam produces good HD videos. Customize your own settings that work best for you. Zoom is fantastic. Autofocus , brightness adjustment are a plus.

Cons: Cannot make video for higher resolutions. Are there any plans for a wireless version?

Other Thoughts: I use it as my security camera with iSpy. Works great. I had to get a USB active repeater to keep it active as it would go passive and disconnected after a long period of us. Now I am fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Camera for Security Pictures

Pros: Widescreen Hi-Def view, good for industrial use ID badge pictures

Cons: Screen cap falls off, not DSLR quality?

Other Thoughts: My company uses one of these to take pictures for badge printing. It works very well for that purpose. The wide view angle makes it pretty forgiving on where the employee is standing. The Lifecam Software can zoom on the targets face as needed.

Very good for what it is intended for.

4 out of 5 eggs70+ Native American Tribes

Pros: This webcam is exactly what we needed for our Software. We have sold over 70+ units to North American and Alaska Tribes. This is their Primary photo capture for reports and ID Card production. We have had 0!!! Returns and complaints, they use this camera on a daily bases and have yet to run into hardware issues.

We currently use it with Windows WIA support but plan to upgrade with a C# app as soon as possible for larger capturesd.

Cons: Only thing that I dislike, and only I, is that Windows 7 will auto install their Lifecam software. That is it!

Other Thoughts: My only hope it that Microsoft does not discontinue this product, it has worked wonders and is our last tripod mounted capture device.

We have purchased over time 120 units.

I'm just the graphics designer, but I help out a lot.

1 out of 5 eggsIf you can get it to work

Pros: Don't know of any yet.

Cons: I'm not the only one out there that is having problems getting it to work. Take a look at the forums out there. I have tried installing it on several different p.c.'s and laptops and have not been able to get it to work as of yet. Do yourself a favor & check out the forums before you even think about buying it.
