"Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000"

This is one of the best web cams i have purchased. The pictures are really clear no matter what lighting i am using. The simple click switch on the top makes it easy to get into video calling which i really couldn't live without.
Not too bulky it fits nicely on top of any slimline monitor. or can stand freely on any surface. The cam can be moved to any angle without falling over whenever I try to move it as thats what i used to find with my previous logitech one.
I would recommend this product to any buyer because it's simple to set up and functions are easy to use. As of yet i do not have any problems with this product and I've had it just over 3 months.
