Wanted a Web cam for Skype as we have a baby coming soon and the grandparents wants to see the baby everyday. So i ordered 2 of these! One for them and one or me!

So easy to setup, just plugged the USB in and it started working!!! Picture quality really good, video called 2 people so far and both commented the picture was really clear!!

Really happy with my purchase!

I've had a number of webcams the past 7 years and so far this has been the best. Really good video quality, properly adjusts to existing light condition and very easy to operate. Good value for money overall so I would recommend to others.

I have never used a computer camera before so the camera and what it came with was all I know. Now for what I do know is when I open the box this camera has a base that can be formed to be position where you like; including on top of a desktop's monitor. The computer is connected to your computer by a USB connection and the software is plug and play. Never having used a Web Cam before this was up and running in no time.

As too quality I have nothing to compare it with but those I spoke with said they could hear me fine, I looked naturally lit and they liked the fact they could see my surroundings or when someone was beside me. Also note I did not make any recordings with it so cannot comment on that portion and this rating is for this product as a video communication device. So for a novice and first time user I can highly recommend this product.

I just recently started using Skype and it struck me immediately that I was really enjoying the experience of being able to see my cousin and even her house on my screen. She, on the other hand, seemed slightly uncomfortable looking down at her feet or out the window, obviously bored of staring at my static profile picture. Clearly I needed to get a webcam, and so the search began.

I finally chose this Microsoft LifeCam based on the picture and sound quality evident on some of the YouTube videos that people have kindly posted. This camera seems to handle low-light conditions really well and the quality of both picture and sound is great (it has a built-in microphone). The wide-screen picture format is handy if you decide to use it to shoot video and it offers HD resolution. The software worked instantly on my oldish pc running Vista and it interacts flawlessly with Skype.

The clip can be moulded into a range of shapes; at first I shaped it like a little stand but my cats soon showed me the error of my ways and I found that it sits perfectly well on the top of my LG monitor, despite the fact that the screen has a curved shape. There are many webcams available at many times the cost of this one, but for me it makes no sense to spend more when you can get this quality at a very low price. Really happy with it.

Verified Purchase
Bought as I wanted a webcam that could cope with bright light on one side due to window and reading Microsoft's information this seemed the best one to do the job and yes I am not disappointed as it gives a very even level of brightness without a "whiteout" of the side near the window, also even though skype is not widescreen compared to my old webcam it gives a wider picture.
