Customer Reviews:

  • Disappointing range of focus
    I bought this webcam thinking, like everyone else, that it'd be reliable.
    It's quite reliable, but I thought that the range of focus was disappointing.

    When you get close to the webcam, it gets blurry pretty quickly. To be honest, it's a wide problem. I found that to be true with Logitech products as well, which is why I had attempted a switch. The only webcam that has made me happy with macro is the IPEVO PoV, and that's because it's got a manual focus.

    Why good focus is important: well, I chat a lot. But also, I sell some jewelry on eBay. My little beads aren't diamonds, so I have to be able to show a little tutorial on my bracelets with a webcam that'll get close enough as I'm explaining why I like my bracelets.

    So verdict: ok for chatting, not too sturdy in my backpack, and focus range is disappointing, especially if you're considering showing objects up close....more info
  • Great Product
    I have never experienced a cam like this before this camera does as it says 2.0MP web view and 8.0MP still pics this is a must have for relatives to share photo's and voice conferencing. Very Good product by Microsoft and wonderful price by info
  • lifecam review
    Everyhthing works as expected as long as I don't pull out the clip on the back. This causes a distortion in the microphone and destroys the sound pick-up. ...more info
  • Does Vista Certified Mean Anything?
    I purchased this since it was Vista Certified. Immediately I had to download a new version of software (177 MBs) since there were "known compatibility issues with Vista". This is a Microsoft product running (or wanting to run) on a Microsoft operating system. Install hung up trying to install version 1.3 and I haven't been able to reinstall (need to uninstall before re-installing although it never installed and doesn't show up in the Control Panel add or remove program list ... since it never completed the install process.) This is going to be a huge waste of time to get this either on or off my computer. Why or why did I think a Microsoft product would work on a Microsoft operating system and the fact that the box said it worked with Vista meant anything at all....more info
  • NX-6000 Webcam
    The install was easy and it has been trouble free. Everybody has been complimentary of the video & audio quality.

    I use it exclusively with Skype and have not installed the Microsoft update. I understand that the update causes problems if you use Skype, so I haven't bothered with it....more info
  • The best out there
    The NX-6000 is the best laptop webcam I have ever used, period!

    The design allows for true portability, however, I would have preferred a detachable cord.

    Microsoft's every improving software also makes it a real value....more info
  • Nothing says quality like "break out the velcro"
    I have a thinkpad Z61M and a dell 30" LCD, both of which are too thick to accommodate this webcam's standard mounting clamp. Seriously, if I have to use velcro to use it on these items I imagine it probably doesn't clamp to much outside of a Macbook air. Sigh....more info
  • Horrible camera - slow and VERY blurry video
    I have tried this camera on three different computers. All of them have 1 GB RAM or more, have at least a 2 GHz processor, and are running Windows XP Professional w/ the latest updates. Motion on the camera is incredibly slow and blurry. I have tried multiple screen resolution settings, and I found that the camera is basically unusable at 1024x768. You have to set your screen resolution to 600x800 in order to get it work, but the camera video is very slow and blurry. I have tried various camera settings, and I have had no luck with those changes. I was hoping I was doing something wrong, as everyone else seems to think this is one of the best cameras on the market, but alas, the camera is not performing well for me. ...more info
  • Outstanding
    The webcam is an easy to operate, fully functional device. Perfect for laptops. The Range on it could be a little better. The mic is excellent....more info
  • Nx-6000 WebCam from Microsoft*
    I found some minor issues with this WebCam:
    (1) I cound not mount it to the top screen cover of my laptop (an IBM T series) (2) The video quality is poor using an older USB 1.1 port. Conclusion: Microsoft expects you to use a 2.0 port with this WebCam. No biggie!...more info
  • Love it
    As someone who travels quite a lot, the lifecam was wonderful. I can communicate with family and friends with video. Great item, I received the item faster than I expected, hook up was simple, picture quality is excellent....more info
  • piece of junk
    this cam is a piece of junk i have a super thin laptop and the clip is not wide enough...more info
  • Good with not much software...
    The software is nothing very useful to me. This works well with the MSN Live Messenger fine. Resolution seems fine and this is mostly a satisfying camera as a webcam. If you want to use this to discretely view things using it as a streaming webcam the lighted microsoft emblem might draw attention to this camera. Alternately that informs you that the thing is working as well, so depending on your needs, that may be good or bad.
    I would buy this again....more info
  • worst product from microsoft

    This is first time I am writing review on internet in my life. My suggesstion is please dont weaste your money and time for this product. I bought this webcam couple of days ago. It looks very attarctive and its features seems very good but when I install all the required softwares and start webcam it gives me "Initilization error". Then I searched Microsoft website and I found that thousands of customer facing this problem and the solution which I saw on Microsoft site is not working at all.

    Then I called microsoft product support team. They spent 2 hours to fix this error. They took the control of my laptop through netmeeting and tried all the different settings but same error comes.

    Finally support team advised me to send back this product to Microsoft and they will give your money back.

    So overall its just weasting your time and money in courier...PLEASE DON'T BUY....

    Rits...more info
  • Microsoft lijecam nx-6000
    It is a horrible product. I bought and i had a lot of problems just installing it. Finally after installing it, the image resolution was horrible so i had to struggle with the webcam until finally i got a good image. After 2 weeks it just stopped working , i red the manuals, went to the microsoft website and tried everything they tell you to do and i could not fixed it. Off course you can call a technician from microsoft but they will charge you 35 dollars.

    In summary , this is not a good product. Not for this price. I feel i was robbed

  • NX-6000 Webcam - Not Security Cam
    High quality images and video for the price paid and the compact design. I was disappointed in the limits to the Microsoft software. No motion detection available was very disappointing....more info
  • Do not buy
    I splurged and got myself a fancy new camera to replace my old Logitech and should have known better than to buy Microsoft. I've spent about an hour trying to get it working but I can't get any video - mic works fine and the camera thinks it's working, but all I get is a black screen. Returning it to get a Logitech or Creative. I'm running XP Pro on an HP with an AMD 3500+ proc....more info
