this any good? or can someone recomend better thanx

I own a lifecam cinema which is much better and much more expensive than this one.

Hate Lifecam software - needs internet to install, added auto startup software with windows services, refuse to pop up when I wanted to config the brightness etc.

Possibly this one use a different software though.

If you go to the MS web page ]here, you will see W7 drivers available

I have this camera and it's v.decent for the price you pay. The quality is good for everything I need it for (aka showing my face), the microphone is good, I keep it about three quarters of a meter away from me and people on the other side of the convo can still hear me fine.

I'm currently using this WebCam with win 7 without problems - I didn't need the drivers mentioned above.

anyone know if this is uvc?

Thanks for your help

Looks better than it performs! Another lazy effort from Microsoft.

I had this webcam & the picture quality is good but the software is awful! The inbuilt microphone is dreadful and I couldn't disable this when I paired it with a microsoft headset, awful software.

Bought a logitech c120 from mymemory the software is amazing and you can upload directly to youtube. 10% Quidco at mymemory and they are on offer at the moment, buy 1 get one free.

Flogged the Microsoft VX1000 to some mug on ebay who paid me more for it than I bought it for originally.

Installed 2 of these at work today, 1 on a Win XP machine and 1 on a Win 7 machine.

Because it's on work computers I was trying to avoid all the extra software it tries to install and it was very easy to do just that. Ignore the instructions and don't let the CD autorun. Plug the usb in BEFORE installing the software.
In Win 7, it finds most of the software itself, the rest is done by going to the Devices and Printers and then right click on the usb camera, then pick properties and change the properties so you can update the driver. Tell it you'll pick the driver and browse to the CD, it installs all the drivers without all the extra Windows Live software.
In Win XP do much the same, when it says it's found new hardware navigate on the CD to the drivers folder for XP 32 (in the setup folder) or XP 64 if you have a 64 bit system. That installs the video software, but not the audio software although it still works. To install the audio software go to the device manager and find usb audio device, update that driver by navigating to the same location as above on the CD but this time in a subfolder called Microphone (or similar, doing this from memory lol) and let it install the software in there.

In both cases these cams work perfectly now with Skype and NONE of the stupid Microsoft software nagging or running at startup etc. Unless you us Windows Live, in which case just run the software!

Tescos still have the 2MP HP one for £15 reduced from £30
