Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

ABC News (dead link) reviews Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 webcam and concludes that the LifeCam VX-3000 is a relatively inexpensive webcam with a good set of features. If not for its lackluster mic and so-so video quality, it would be a great low-cost choice. Just like the company’s high-end VX-6000 but a little less capable, the VX-3000 is really an entry-level camera that packs a few fancy features.

ComputerAct!ve (dead link) concludes with rating of 3 out of 5 that Microsoft’s LifeCam VX-3000 is easy to use and has a few useful added features, but weak performance means that it’s a fairly average webcam at a reasonably affordable price.

Note: Higher-end Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 is also available.
