Microsoft T3H-00011 L2 LifeCam HD-3000 USB 2.0 WebCam

3 out of 5 eggs Windows Live Essentials? 02/28/2014

This review is from: Microsoft T3H-00011 L2 LifeCam HD-3000 USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros: Good picture quality.
Worked on Windows 7 right out of the Box.
No software installation, or so I thought, read below...

Cons: Cant remove funky base or mount to tripod.
Wants to install software I do not need nor want.

Other Thoughts: I can't explain why this cam works out of the box but when it's left plugged in when I reboot it wants to install software.
Quote:
"Setting up your LifeCam involves the following steps:
1. Downloading and installing the latest software.
2. Installing Windows Live Essentials
3. Connecting your LifeCam"

Um... I do not want Windows Live or anything to do with Windows Live. Now I got to figure out why it's intent on putting it on my computer and IF I can remove it after it's hijacked me without it bugging me again.

Feels like just like Google forcing everyone with a gmail account to get Google +. I'm getting rather sick of corporations compelling or forcing us into their social networks. It's all an effort to mine personal data.

Arkon SM628 Arkon sm628 slim-grip ultra 1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good spring tension and grip. I used the short legs on top and long legs on the bottom.
I can turn it sideways and stick just about any smartphone in it in a matter of seconds but I only use it for my 7" tablet.

Cons: The catch/tab for my MoKo Slim-fit Case runs into the top of the mount and leaves it cockeyed. I could turn it over but then my USB connection would be in the way. I could also swap the legs but then it would raise it up and obstruct my view more.

The hinge that allows it to tilt seems a bit loose, even when I tighten it down so it doesn't tilt but this doesn't seem to be a big deal as it doesn't bounce around

You definitely want to make use of the screws. I used my own screws with nuts and mounted onto a portion of the dash that can be easily replaced.

Other Thoughts: I primary use this to hold my 7 inch tablet to use it as a GPS and MP3 player in my 03' Saturn Vue.
It would be nice if there was an intermediate arm to add onto it to bring it out from the dash an inch or two.

►This is by far the best mount I could find for under 20 dollars.◄

ARCTIC P253BT Bluetooth Stereo Headphones, Built-in Mic, A2DP/AVRCP, iOS/Android/Windows - Silver/Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Same as previous review:
Audio quality is more than adequate for music.
Battery life is really good.
Lightweight.

Cons: ►►It will pair with Nexus 7◄◄
Turn on the headset by holding the button AND don't release until the blue and red lights are flashing. Now search for the headset with your device.
I still don't know WHY they couldn't provide these instructions on their website or in the box.

Rest is same as before:
It's hard to tell which buttons are volume controls and which ones are skip controls. Making the buttons feel different would have been a big plus. I suppose gluing something on them would work.
No instructions included or provided on the website.

Other Thoughts: I still think the $5 dollar rebate is rather dumb. Anything under $20 dollars should just be an instant rebate. Why should I waste a 46 cent stamp, envelope, paper, & printer toner for a 5 dollar plastic card that's a hassle to use??? I got enough on my plate as it is than to waste 1 dollar and my time to get 4 dollars.
