A relatively inexpensive webcam with a good set of features, but I wish the built-in mic worked better. I purchased this camera after having tried the VX-1000 model for about a month or two. I was hoping for a much bigger difference than what I received after using this for the first five minutes. The only "update" or difference in this model versus the vx-1000 is that it has the pan, tilt, and zoom abilities. The picture and video quality were pretty much exactly the same on both models. I have yet to try out the VX-6000 and probably won't really soon since I was let down tons by this model. Microsoft makes lots of good products for computers, but this didn't quite make the cut one of those top-end products by them. It's a decent camera, but if you want this type of quality, you might as well just end up getting the vx-1000. It's way cheaper, and you get almost exactly the same work done out of that product and this one.
