Don't Waste Your Money on the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 4/17/2017 12:31:05 AM

Pros: You plug it in, and Windows recognizes it immediately.

Cons: When connected to multiple PCs via a USB hub, the video seen by the receiving person over Skype was very fuzzy. I personally observed this on a receiving person's machine. When the LifeCam HD-3000 was connected directly to a USB port on the PC, the video improved to about equal that of my old Logitech C-250 (800x600) webcam. I also found that the available webcam controls were minimal at best, and did not allow for much adjustment to be made in video quality.

Overall Review: For a webcam that claims to be high definition to have no better video quality than a very old non-HD webcam makes it a waste of money. I certainly won't buy another Microsoft video product, and will stick with Logitech in the future.

Good Webcam for the Money 6/14/2016 10:52:22 AM

Pros: -Pretty good quality for the cost
-Very flexible and fits on top of even thin monitors pretty well

Cons: -The microphone is really sensitive

Overall Review: If you're looking to get a decent quality webcam for a small amount of money because you don't care about having a super high quality webcam like me, then this is perfect for you.

Doesn't work with my PC 4/8/2016 2:42:34 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work

Overall Review: This camera worked fine on a PC that had windows 10 installed. I have Windows 7, and it doesn't work. I even called windows support and let them have access to my computer in order to try to get it to work, and they were unable to do so. My friend has a Logitech camera that worked plug and play instantly with my computer; I'm buying from them next time.

Solid for basic usage. 12/28/2014 12:03:40 PM

Pros: Decent video quality and adequate mic.

Cons: Very short cable.
Poor driver/software package.
Won't be detected if the mic is not set to default or is disabled.

Overall Review: I see people reviewing who complain about disappearing camera and lockups. I haven't experienced any freezes because I'm using the short cable and I have decent internet performance, but the driver/software package is poor. With the LifeCam 3.6 software loaded even in Skype (a Microsoft application) the controls are woefully inadequate.

You get better control when the LifeCam software is uninstalled.

If you find that Skype or LifeCam is suddenly not seeing the camera but it shows up in Windows devices simply double check that the Windows Sound settings have the camera's mic set as default. Even "default communication" won't work.
