Work on Windows 10

Strengths:

Good color on Windows 10. Decent mic.

Weaknesses:

Image a bit too bright when used on a Mac. No tripod connection.

Additional Comments:

I don't experience the issues the other reviewers are talking about. I wish it had a tripod connection so I could put it on an adjustable arm.

Worked great before I went to Windows 10

Strengths:

None anymore.

Weaknesses:

Unusable in Windows 10

Additional Comments:

Use a search engine of your choice for "Windows 10" and "Lifecam". Lots of issues. Unusable on my Windows 10 system, which is a shame. Support pages on Microsoft's site refer to drivers and firmware only available for WIndows 7. Rather disappointing as this used to be an excellent camera.

awful after windows 10 update

Strengths:

decent resolution used to work well

Weaknesses:

drivers are terrible in anything past windows 7 image now permanently pink

Additional Comments:

No configuration possible past Windows 7 due to awful drivers. Has an issue where the image turns pink permanently. I saw this with this cam in Mac OSX but was able to fix it by changing exposure settings via the app "Webcam Settings" on the app store. Now I'm using this cam on a Windows 10 PC there is no way to work around this. None of the old drivers or software is usable and there's no 3rd party apps available to tweak the settings like on OSX. EOL hardware, no support at all. Stay away.
