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.
Pros: This is a REALLY good cam for under $100.
Picture is very clear and fast.
Low light shot is amazing.
Cons: Do NOT install the software if you have Win 7. Just plug it in.
If you have Vista, you can use the software, but AVOID the software AND firmware updates. Mine was working great for about an hour. Then, I did the updates, and it was the last time it worked on a Dell XPS 410 running Vista-64bit. Check out "Lifecam Studio firmware doesn't work" on Google.
Pros: Easy set up and use, great video quality. Now my friends can see me better than I can see them. The mike works better than I expected, does not pick up background noise.
Pros: 720p, clear, autofocus, easy to install.
Cons: None Yet.
Overall Review: Got this as a gift for my mom for mothers day.
Pros: Tremendous quality compared to everything else I have used.
Pros: Easy to connect and set up.
Cons: Picture flickers badly (changing exposure) and auto-focuses constantly. Does not seem to have any software for making adjustments.
Overall Review: Would not recommend.
Pros: Easy to setup great video easy to use.
Overall Review: Great choice just hard to find during this time
Pros: A very compact and effiecent unit, easy to install and W7 recognized it off the bat and downloaded the software. It was up and running in 10 minutes with just a few minor adjustments for lighting and resolution.
Cons: No cons at this time.
Overall Review: after using the M$ 1000 640 X 480 for 6 years the difference between the 2 is like night and day.
