Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000

 

The LifeCam VX-6000 offers quality video, easy setup, and a nice set of features, but its built-in mic disappoints.

Easy to set up and use. Works with all major instant-messaging clients. Includes pan, tilt, and zoom control.

Doesn't work consistently with every messaging client. Mic volume needs to be turned up high in order to pick up sound.

Microsoft LifeCam review

 

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 is Microsoft's answer to higher-end Webcams, such as the Logitech QuickCam Fusion and the Creative Live Cam Voice . The LifeCam VX-6000 adds some interesting features that we've not seen before on a Webcam, including a...

Flexible stand; adjustable camera; call button launches contacts; can post photos to blogs through software.

Call button gets in the way while adjusting; must install Windows Live Messenger; subpar video effects; delay in starting video.

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 offers unique features such as the ability to post photos directly to a blog, but its video effects and image quality don't stand up to that of competing Webcams from veteran manufacturers.

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 & VX-3000

 

Microsoft released two brand-new webcams last month, the VX-3000 and VX-6000, both of which have a huge feature-set. The better of the two even offers "high-definition" 1.3 megapixel video capabilities. We've been testing both webcams for the past...

I found that I did not really care for the face tracking, as it seemed clunky to me. The camera will follow your face around when you move, and even though it may seem like a good idea, often it just makes the camera feel jerky. It’ll adjust zoom and...

Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000

 

The Microsoft LifeCam NX6000 is a fair webcam that produces quality video at 640 x 480 or 800 x 600. Other resolution settings produce a lesser quality video. Although quality video is lacking, this camera has a design that is truly meant for...

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Web Cam

 

The Microsoft LifeCam VX6000 is a remarkable webcam that produces quality video; video that more resembles a video camera movie than a simple webcam recording. 1.3 Mega Pixel video resolution coupled with flawless motion capture and great response,...

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000

 

Microsoft has taken some time to get into the “Webcam” market; it's a market that has really been taken over by the likes of Logitech and Creative. With the release of their LifeCam set of cameras, Microsoft has finally given them some kind of...

Decent Design ; Good Audio ; Good Picture Quality

Useless top button ; Expensive ; Not as good as latest Logitech offerings

Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000

 

Excellent image quality in outdoor environments, impressive integrated microphone, easy to set-up and use

Average image quality in office environment, below average in dim lighting, little expensive

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 is a mid-range webcam that suffers from the same pitfalls as most mid-range cameras on the market. When the lighting is anything but optimal, the image quality suffers greatly.
