We received the cam very quickly and it is working way beyond what we expected. It fits on top of our moniter very well and it can be moved so well.The picture we receive is crystal clear just wonderful.Extremely pleased with your purchase.

Very happy with the camera and less expensive than the stores in town. I maybe could have spent more and got something that didn't lag at all, but more than adequate for what I need (skypeing!). Shipping was fast and free - awesome.

Delivery was very fast. The lifecam picture quality and sound seems very good. I bought this lifecam to talk with my son overseas, and it seems to be doing what its supposed to so far. Would recommend

A very easy plug-and-play camera. It seems solid. However, the image quality is merely adequate and the software that comes with it for Microsoft chat doesn't install for me.

I am not a rabid MS fan, but this camera/microphone gizmo works great. I bought a pair for my niece and elderly sister in the great white north. Totally plug'n'play; MS Vista & MS 7 auto-magically loaded all of the requisite drivers. Highly recommended for Skype use. There are, obviously, many other choices, but this model is the best that I could find considering cost, quality, utility and, other user reviews.

An MS Fan hardware when they really deserve it.

The camera itself is good. The microphone is also quite performant.

Software wise, it jus works ! The noise/echo reduction works well.

The Flexible Base is however disappointing. Not really sturdy and not compatible with all flat screen displays. Big bezels or thick frame screens do not work with this webcam.
