    Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
    I bought this as a Prime member (I highly recommend a Prime membership with Amazon-- $3.99/one day shipping) and opted for Amazon's Frustration-Free Packaging option!

    At first I was hesitant about the Frustration-Free Packaging because I was worried it wouldn't be enough to keep the webcam from bouncing around inside the box during transit, but I was totally wrong! I opened up the box and found the Microsoft Lifecam Cinema webcam had not even budged, as far as I could tell, during shipping.

    Aside from packaging, the webcam quality is excellent! It works well on Skype, Google Chat, Facebook, etc!

    Also of note is that the camera shipped with the latest firmware. If you ordered this camera earlier on, you may not have the latest firmware (compared to what's available on MS's site now), which MS states has:
    - [improved/new] TrueColor compatibility
    - Improved Audio
    - Improved auto-focus
    - Other firmware upgrades

    so I'm betting if you have any problems with your Lifecam, then they should be fixable by the new firmware from Microsoft!

    I couldn't say how the included CD's software is, because I chose to just go to MS's site and download the latest Lifecam software (separate package from the firmware), just because I had a feeling it'd be outdated (I've had a ton of CD's from various top-name manufacturers with outdated software, such as ASUS, Intel, etc... not calling them out, though!).

    anyways though, check out the videos in other peoples' reviews! this camera gets all five-stars from me! sound quality, picture quality, etc. are excellent (from what my buddies who are on the receiving end tell me).

    Also, for what it's worth, I'm using this Lifecam Cinema on a Windows 7 64-bit installation and everything runs flawlessly. My internet connection speed is equivalent to DSL (apartment complex-provided internet) and I don't have any trouble with the HD video sharing choking.

    Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
    There is a great deal to like about the Microsoft Life Cam. The product is samll, easy to set-up, has tremendous quality video and audio and is flexible enough to attach to a number of different surfaces. I connect it, at times to the actual screen of my laptop and at times to a 22" HD monitor which is what my laptop is connected to at home. My family and I have started Skyping each other, them on their integrated webcams, me on my Life Cam...the quality of the video and audio of my Lifecam is soooooo superior. Because of the Life Cam I was able to save a good bit of money on the laptop that I decided to buy. Not havingan integrated webcam saved me about $70.00 on the price of the laptop, and having the Life Cam gives me flexibility of positioning and movement not available in a static integrated webcam. THis is a great deal and I am glad that I chose to buy the very reasonably priced, high quality Life Cam!

    Product Packaging: Retail Verified Purchase
    Bought this hoping to step up from my laptop built in camera. Can't say i'm happy with it.

    Positive:
    * Looks good
    * With good lighting and right software/config the picture is good
    Negative:
    * Pain to install, software is clumsy and slow
    * Doesn't work with Mac
    * HD in Skype is fiddly and unreliable (yes, i know it's a hack, but still, it's one of the primary uses for any webcam, so...)
    * Couldn't get HD video to work in messenger either
    * Low light performance is better than my old webcam, but still not good (there is a definite lag in low light conditions)

    Bottom line: if you are looking for an HD webcam that you can just plug in and get on with it - look elswhere. If you are an IT guy with time to spare and likes the challenge - then this one is right up your alley.

    Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
    I read a few of the reviews before I purchased this web-cam and I can confirm the same positive findings. I've owned previous versions of Microsoft cameras - all mediocre - but this particular model is a stand-out! The camera has an ergonomic design and because of its flexible stands it can be used with both laptops and desktops without any sacrifices. The device has a quality feel and it seems very durable. Video quality is spectacular and the camera responds very well in low-light settings.

    Definitely worth the money! No reservations...

    Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
    Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is not bad for the price for a 720p HD webcam. Not only it gives out a clear video/picture, with it's TrueColor technology, even on the darkest lit room, it automatically adjust the brightness and colors to make it seem like there is more lighting in the video. Although, the video can be a bit laggy if there isn't enough lighting in the room. So it's preferable of using this camera during daylight.
    The microphone of the webcam is not bad yet not it's best. I was hoping for more of studio quality from the webcam but it's acceptable. Though, it does cancel the background noise but if you are using your webcam near an AC or a ceiling fan, the microphone will pick it up real easy and can block the sound. Also you can slightly hear the AC running so it's best if you use this camera in a quiet environment.
    The Auto focus of the webcam is not bad! I tried to have the camera focus on my iTouch to one of my friends (only 4 in. away from the camera) and you can see how clear it can get! The only thing that really bugs me is how the webcam tends to Auto focus constantly. Luckily, you can manually adjust your webcam settings to avoid that (while TrueColor Technology is OFF) when it comes to using this webcam on applications such as Skype, AIM, MSN Messenger, etc.
    The program that comes with the webcam is alright. Although I do love the effects it came with but the program itself can take a lot of memory(RAM) to process (I use Windows 7).
    Overall, I am pretty happy with this camera for the price. It is what I expected it as it describe in the product info. I do RECOMMEND this product if you want to save money a high quality webcam, this product is for you.
