Nice form factor. Sensitive sensor.
None really - maybe could be a bit cheaper :)
I bought it because I wanted the sensor and not to use as a webcam but did try it out and it seems like a nice webcam, Good quality images, autofocus seems to work without a lot of hunting, good for low-light.

- Excellent Video Quality
- Fun Features
- None so far
I've been using this webcam for a few months now and really enjoy it. It works without any problems. The price seems a little steep but I definitely don't regret my purchase.

Video quality is really good. Sound quality is also good.

-interesting software
-facial detection
-wide angle, 73 degree as oppose to the common 67 degree
-auto focus can get annoying due to its slowness
It works fine out of the box, software installs automatically on both 32 and 64 bit Windows 7. 360 degree rotatable about the horizontal. About 30 degree rotatable about the vertical. Autofocus can get annoying because it can be slow sometimes. Like the long usb cable, about 1.7m. Can price match to about $55.

- Compact size
- Buggy software, lots of gimmicks which slows down the video, can't full screen in lifecam software.
- Clip is not big enough, my 24" monitor is too thick to fix it on top.
Can't say this webcam is worth the regular $80, probably not even worth $60 when it goes on sale. Both the software and the hardware need improvements. Video quality is just okay.

Clear video, Mic works with the MS software, flip-out stand attaches to any monitor/TV, works with Skype
Auto Focus isn't up to par
I purchased 8 of these web cams for our offices in order to be able to host video conferences. The video these cameras produce look nice. The microphone works well. The camera also works well with Skype. Just go in and change the audio and video settings to point to the camera. The auto-focus should be disabled (as other users have pointed out), but other than that, it's a good purchase.

Experience: 1 Days
great microphone
looks good
updates ruins it
software is junk
isn't 30 fps
autofocus is useless since it doesn't really work
I make a lot of videos but was only using my laptop's webcam. Moving your laptop arround to get the right angle isn't that great and I bought a monitor so my laptop stays closed (so no more cam) so I bought this one thinking it would be a good thing. When I received it, it was just a random box with the camera in a small bag in it, nothing more, no softwares or manuals ; not even the microsoft's box. I tried it, was pretty good except the autofocus was annoying as hell since the only thing it does is blurring the image. Thinking it would be a good thing, I updated the firmware and the software -> Worse thing to do. Now the camera works at like 15 fps only. But, I must say the image looks good and the sound quality really surpised me. But, I did a video afterwards of an unboxing and the microphone stopped working after like 1-2 minutes and restarted maybe 4 minutes after and my voice was distorted. It was in a 8 minutes video. I didn't really check it out after, but really what I can say is plug it, restart your computer and leave it like that. My laptop's camera gets like 5 fps in its software but with sony vegas it works with 30 fps. I tried with this camera and any software looks pretty much the same -> the firmware screw it I think. I'll give it 4 stars, but after updating I would give 2 stars.

Reasonable resolution makes up for grainy picture
Autofocus is garbage, 40c electronics recycling fee BS.
Autofocus - what junk. It will sit there with the entire frame in focus, then randomly decide to try and auto-focus, making the picture blurry and unuseable for 3-4 seconds. The only time I've ever seen the camera not in focus, is when it's doing the autofocus, which it likes to do rather frequently.

Otherwise the camera works okay. Resolution of 720p makes up for the cheap CCD that puts out grainy images even in bright light. (Quantity over Quality) Expected and typical of a cheap digital camera device. For a webcam, it meets basic needs.

Quality, Ease of use, durability
None notable
Great webcam, much smalled than I expected but still puts out great quality video. I have no complaints about the product and can use it in low light settings without much of a drop  in quality, very happy.

Experience: 2 Months
High definition. Runs smoothly. Nice built in mic. Unique design.
Tad pricy but it's hey it's hd. Auto zoom to the face but could be disabled.
Ive had this webcam for 2 months now and I still love it. I use it mainly for skype and my friends love the quality of the video the webcam presents. The webcam has a built in mic and the quality of the sound is "like as if I'm right there beside my friends talking into their ears." The webcam runs smoothly throughout the hours of chatting.

The cylinder shape of this webcam definitely gives it a nice and unique look. The colour of the webcam is primarily black with a silver right at the tip - will match the colour of most mainstream laptops. The webcam holdster is very easy to clip onto thee screen of laptops and is easily adjustable. The webcam could swivel left and right and also a minimal movements up and down. The USB cable is plenty in length and has a clip to hold excess cables from the webcam.

The webcam comes with the product and an installation cd which was extremely easy to install. Total time of installation took about 5 to 10 mins.

In the end, I highly recommend this webcam to anyone who plans to video chat regularily. This webcam is also great for taking pictures and I almost forgot to mention that the program that comes with the lifecam has face effects which is tonnes of fun!

The only two issues I have with this webcam Is the price and the webcam holster. I bought it when it was 59.99 but if your not in a hurry wait for the great deals on this webcam at Ncix. I tend to go room to room with my laptop when I webcam and I notice that the webcam tips over when I relocate but doesn't fall on the keyboard it just hangs there. These are just minor issues and it would not prevent me from returning this lifecam by Microsoft.
