The Bottom Line There are better Webcams that you can buy with your $100 than the Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000. The Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 offers a winning combination of stellar image quality, easy-to-use software, and a sturdy, stable stand. It's our Webcam pick for desktop and laptop users alike. The Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 for notebooks offers impressive HD video output quality and excellent sound definition over previous models for an overall smooth video-chatting experience, but the continual autofocus feature can be distracting to your chat partner. Nevertheless, we recommend the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, if you have the proper system requirements. Despite its uninspired software, the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 proves its worth with outstanding image quality, a funky and useful design, and low price.
