Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000

ABC News (dead link) reviews Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 and concludes that “when using the webcam with Win-dows Live Messenger, I found the video quality to be good, and the 30 fps rate meant no jumpy video. I did, however, have some audio problems. When using AIM, I noticed a slight delay in both audio and video. I had the worst experience using Yahoo!. The video was jumpy and grainy. Overall, the VX-6000 is a reasonably priced webcam with a nice set of features, but I wish the mic worked better.”
