Tim, Market Bosworth Normal computer user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I got this Camera after much research and confusion on what is better about each type of camera, I did not want to pay a premium for a brand name. In the end I bit the bullet and brought the Microsoft Life Cam. It's nice and small fits on my lap top and desk top, one of the most easy installation of the soft ware I have come across, the choice of picture resolutions is great including the HD function, Auto focus keeps the picture clear as long as there is no really fast movement, microphone sound quality is good and I have used it on the Microsoft's own chat system and Skype. Since then I have brought one for my parents and in-laws so they can keep up to date with their grandson. If you don’t know anything about webcams and unsure of what to get, this is really user-friendly, simple to use, a good quality product and won’t break the bank.
Bad points:
Computer enthusiasts could probably find fault but for me and the rest of society there are no bad points to the Microsoft Life Cam

Aimee, Portsmouth

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
its a great webcam with brilliant quality and vreat sound from the mic, both the image quality and the mic sound can be adjusted and it also link up great with windows live, if you dont have an account it automatically asks if you want to set on up which is a nice feature.
Bad points:
because it has an autofocus, sometimes the webcam it can go blurry whilst in use when its trying to fucus, this can happen hardly at all, or on one occasion, it can happen every couple of seconds, which can bea bit annoying, but as long as you have good lighting and you are at a reasona le distance from the lense you can enjoy the experience fine!
