- If you are looking for an out of the box experience....
Bought this so my parents could chat with my kids. Was a little confusing at first, but didn't take long to figure it out. The image quality is good. For my purposes, I give this product 5 stars. If you are looking to create webcasts, videos, or take high quality pics -- probably not for you. If you are looking for an inexpensive webcam to chat occasionally with friends and family - look no further....more info
- Great Product
The webcams work great. The size of the screen is pretty small. It still works really well. ...more info
- Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000
Good buy for the money. Pretty easy to install and use (despite being technologically challenged!)...more info
- web cam
nice product - have been trying to use for 4 days now. can't get it to work. can't find enough instructions....more info
- Two decent web cameras
These cameras worked well, I used them both on Vista and Windows Sever 2003. I did not even need to install the lifecam software for it to work and the quality was good....more info
- what a deal
The two for one price was great, as many sources offer this this item singly for the same price. The lifeCam was easy to install. Have not any problems with it albiet... I've only had it for a month....more info
- LIFECAM VX-3000
LIFECAM LOOKS GOOD IN THE BOX AND THAT IS WHERE YOU SHOULD PROBABLY LEAVE IT BECAUSE IF YOU ARE RUNNING VISTA IT WILL NOT WORK. THE SOFTWARE WILL NOT RUN AND IF YOUR READ THE REVIEWS ON MICRO SOFT WEBSITE EVERYONE ELSE ON THERE WILL TELL YOU THE SAME THING. IT IS A WASTE OF $50.00. IT IS A DAMM SHAME THAT MICRO SOFT PUTS THINGS OUT ON THE MARKET AND THEY CAN'T EVEN MAKE THEM WORK RIGHT. THEY ARE RIPPING OFF THE PUBLIC. HOPEFULLY WHEN I UNINSTALL VISTA AND GO TO XP ALL!!!! MY PROBLEMS WILL GO AWAY. (STAY AWAY FROM VISTA)...more info
- Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000
Good for my use, talking to my son and grand daughter in Boston. Hate the istant messager button on the top-everytime you touch istant messager pops up, I use Skype. Quality is not that good of picture, I would opt for a higher resolution if purchasing again. For the price works great!...more info
- Picture perfect
These cameras are great and very slim and stylish. The picture and video quality is great and doesn't break up. Good deal for the price. Highly recommended...more info
- Good stuff
I am not tech savvy, but this product worked well enough to meet my standards and is clear and meets my needs....more info
- One stop shopping for those interested in video skype
Interested in visiting your mother-in-law electronically rather than in person? Here's your answer. Two matched cameras with the microphone build right in. Just download the drivers and off you go. Just don't forget to tell her that the camera isn't on all the time and therefore it isn't necesary to cover it with a sock when not in use.
Seriously, the picture quality and ability to focus is very good, it clips to your monitor very easily and the built in microphone is a very good feature....more info
- Awesome <3
This webcam is sooo amazing.
I gave one to my mom and I kept one..
I don't have to go visit as often now because this is instant communication.
And it's really good.
Pretty clear audio too....more info
- I LOVE IT!
I really love the LifeCam. The resolution is very clear and it's very easy to set up and use. My 22-month old daughter and I just held a conversation with my son and husband while we were visiting my parents. It was so nice to hold a full conversation and to see each other. I don't know why I didn't buy this product earlier!...more info
- Make a system restore point before installing
I installed the software on my Acer 3610 Laptop and then plugged in the camera and that's where things went downhill. The WinXP OS wouldn't recognize the camera and kept asking my to install the drivers. I eventually determined that there was updated software for the camera from Microsoft. That didn't help. I wasn't able to get the camera to work at all. It may have had a conflict with my Brother MFC-8220 USB printer. There's no way I'm plugging this into my new laptop without backing the system up.
The camera worked without a problem on my wife's tower. I did expect more from the performance of the camera overall. I've since done a bunch of research on cameras and found this to be on the mid-low end scale.
The button on the top is a PITA. Everytime you pick it up MSN starts up.
Not related to the product specifically but to my experience installing it: Other websites suggested running a utility to get the OS to forget about all USB devices. Once I did that most of my USB products wouldn't work (keyboard, external drives, printer/scanner) - again they were asking for drivers. Fortunately I had a restore point that I could go back to and that un-did all of the mess....more info
- Webcam used for Skype
The webcam is excellent for use with Skype. I wasn't sure it would be until I found a review that assured me it would. It does so very well! Easy to install and it's great to have the built-in mictophone too. And - it's almost two for the price of one!
I would recommend this to anyone....more info
- VX-3000 Great CAM
Installation was just pop in the CD, go through the prompts, hookup the camera's usb connection and that is all. Well, you can adjust the camera for a better view. You need to create a hotmail account (Windows Live Mail) to connect to others using IM. I like this camera....more info
- Please look at the unit price!!
You can get 2-pack for $80...or 2 individual ones for $27 each (just search for VX-3000). Please don't buy the "pack"......more info
- Sorry Customer Service
Ordered this for my dad and when it came in the mail it only had one camera in the package. The camera that is suppose to be for a friend was not there. Called customer service and they were not helpfull!!!! They tried to tell me it was suppose to come with one camera. After 45 minutes they finally realized their mistake and said they were out of stock...ugh. I will be going somewhere else to get this product. I will not order another item from amazon.com!!! ...more info
- easy to use, good quality pic - really fun
this camera was easy to install (even for me- not a techie...at all). it is fun to use and the good quality pic helps me stay close to my loved ones far away. i highly recommend it. it is a great value and one of the best things i've bought in awhile! ...more info
- good for the price
Although it is not a high resolution cam, it does it's job perfectly (video chat). This webcam is originally designated for a desktop monitor, so it attaches loosley to a laptop one. Another problem that it doesn't have a build in light.
In conclusion: if you are looking for a cheap and good quality camera, VX 3000 is the one.
- Great Product!
I bought this product specifically for my husband to keep in touch with me and the kids when he is out of town. It was very easy to install and is very user-friendly. My husband isn't very comfortable with new technology, but he was able to figure out how to use it with little confusion and frustration. I plan to buy another pack for my Mom and best friend, so we can all keep in touch!!...more info
- I love it...
I really like it. I used another web cam and the picture was not near as clear...
- Good Price , Good Product.
I bought this Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Pack for my family and they loved them , clear pictures and the price was great, so if you get the chance to get your hands on one of these , get it.You can't go wrong with Amazon!!!
- web Cam
Item arrived quickly as described. Seller has quality products and all pieces included. Good communication, would buy from this seller again without reservation....more info
- Great item, Great Value, Difficult To Install
So, I went ahead and bought the two pack of web cams, after reading the reviews already posted, which seemed to indicate that with Windows Vista, I would have a problem with installation. And I did. I installed to two laptops (both less than a year old - running windows vista service pack 1) and it installed flawlessly on the newer laptop (that had service pack 1 already installed on it out of the box). The laptop that was upgraded to service pack 1, had multiple problems during installation. I finally was able to get the video working, but the microphone feature would not work. After trial and error, going through the control panel to the device manager, I was able to manually get the microphone to work by selecting 'usb microphone' or something like that for the unknown device and then it worked great.
The picture and audio are both really good, especially considering I paid $50 for two webcams. They work great with the new windows live messenger. I took one star off in the review because of the difficulty with installation. ...more info
- buy each seperate for less.
The twin pack is a bit of a rip since Amazon has each camera sold individually for $26.99 and the same deal on shipping so,why buy this twin pack?...more info
- Acceptable webcam
I was expecting more from this webcam. Great price for 2 webcams, but so-so hardware/software. ...more info
