Lifecam: no threaded socket
Pros: Nice video. Identified by most computers I have plugged it into so far, including my Fedora 16 desktop at work.
Cons: One reason I purchased this is that a similar Microsoft Live cam bought only a few months ago had a threaded socket for tripod or other mounted use. This model does not and I just can't see whey that decision was taken. Perhaps this is actually an older model? I didn't think so. Regardless, -1 for no threaded socket.
Nice hardware, but does not support HTTPS
Pros: The camera hardware seems pretty sturdy and it has a decent feature set for the cost.
Cons: The camera does not support HTTPS as stated in the product description. The firmware update process is rather opaque -- there is not "upgrade firmware now" option/button. It seems to rely on an automatic upgrade setting with a minimum wait time of 60 seconds. Weird
Overall Review: Would almost give it a 5 it it came with the HTTPS that was promised.
