Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 - Web cam
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Sep 22, 2010

THE GOOD: 720p HD video quality at 30 frames per second, flexible base sits firmly on hard surfaces; inexpensive; LifeCam desktop software offers fun 3D video effects. THE BAD: Jumpy auto-focus during video recording; CPU hog at higher resolutions; incompatible with Mac OS; THE BOTTOM LINE: The Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 Web camera offers excellent high-def video and sound quality at an affordable price. Despite using a good deal of system resources at higher resolutions, its certainly an improvement over stock Web cams. We recommend it to anyone looking for a smoother video chat experience.

Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Mar 18, 2010

The Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 is a mid-range 720p webcam. It utilizes Microsoft TrueColor technology, which aims to produce a clearer image and more vivid color via more precise exposure controls. The webcam records 720p (widescreen) video at 30 fps, and features auto-focus. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7, the HD-5000 is optimized for use with Windows Live Messenger, but can be used with a variety of VoIP and other software. The HD-5000 is virtually identical to the HD-5001, but the latter is available only at Best Buy, and features a different face design. Features 720p/30fps video 16:9 widescreen TrueColor technology Auto-focus Compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 Fits desktop and notebook monitors ... PROS: (1) attaches to desktops & laptops (2) 30fps video capturing (3) 720p video resolution (4) low price of $50 ... CONS: (1) high system requirements (recommended: 3GHz dual core CPU and 2GB RAM) (2) no integrated hardware video encoder

4.5 Star Review  intellireview.com - Aug 3, 2011

PROS:High definition camera for video calls, 720p HD resolution, very good image quality. CONS:Autofocus issues, HD demands high system resources. REVIEW:The LifeCam HD-5000, Microsofts entry to the high-definition webcam market, has the ability to record up to 720p widescreen HD. Its lens captures images with superb color and clarity and shoots videos at 30 frames a second. With its excellent ability to handle white balance, light-colored elements contrast very well with dark ones without

Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 Webcam
5 Star Review   By Blaked95 on HP - Mar 24, 2012   

FEATURES: -High Definition - Easy to set up - Built in microphone -Auto-focus REVIEW: I like this webcam, there is however, one problem with one of the features. The feature is the auto-focus, If you want to use your webcam for video chatting or making video on youtube, then you have to turn the auto-focus off. The built in microphone is a good feature to have if your computer doesn't have a microphone on it or if you don't have a headset. I like the microphone because it's easy to use. If I forget my microphone at home and I only have my camera then I won't need a headset (most of the time) The webcam is easy to set up. It comes with a CD that you put into your computer and you put the CD in, or you can plug the camera's USB straight into the computer without the CD. The webcam comes in HD, as you can see in the picture, you have to have a high- speed internet connection and at least 2 mb of space on your computer in order for your webcam to work. Overall, I like this webcam because it's an HD webcam and you have the option to turn off the auto-focus.
