Q & As

Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 HD Webcam 5 5 4 4
Got the right one Simple easy to use, quick install and fantastic pictures/video in HD 27 November 2012
Fantastic quality for the price, and an efficient John Lewis... I ordered the webcam online and it was delivered to my local JL store for pick up. Picking up team had plenty of people to serve. My order was checked quickly, and the goods was handed to me within a matter of minutes. Great service! JL's price was excellent, and was clearly among the cheapest. The webcam worked straight out the box with Ubuntu 32 bit and 64 bit, as well as Windows 7. No installation was required. The OS recognised the webcam and all was done in the background by the OS themselves. It worked on Skype (Ubuntu 32/64 & Win7), and Yahoo Messenger (Win) without any problems. Video quality is great and is very clear with 720p HD resolution. The built-in microphone is fine too, and is as good as a plug-in stand-alone microphone. The webcam can be free-standing, and could also stand on top of a monitor. It has some rubber-like surface so it should stay on most surfaces securely. 02 August 2012
