Craving Tech

LifeCam VX-5500

Good Gear Guide
  • Summary: The VX-5500 is a basic little webcam that offers decent sound and image quality. It’s not the most versatile webcam on the market, but it gets the job done for a semi-reasonable price. Of course, the same thing can be said of every other Microsoft model. A less than essential purchase.
  • Pros: Good low-light performance, 3-D face-tracking, appealingly low-key design
  • Cons: Only suited to flat surfaces, face plates are a bit bland, incompatible with Macs

  • Pros: Built-in noise suppression microphone, slick alloy casing, image quality, autofocus, mounting options
  • Cons: Full functionality only possible with iChat AV, not compatible with Windows systems, expensive, image settings not adjustable
