Pros Excellent camera functions
Cons Should have come out along time ago
Summary XBOX Live Vision Cam is a must buy for XBOX 360 gamers. Easy setup and use. It is finally great to put a face to your friends gamer tags. Zoom ******* is excellent also. The price is good the Gold pack is the way to go for around $80 you get the camera a year subscription to XBOX Live 2 free games and 200 Microsoft points. You can also use the camera on your computer.
Pros Good idea, decent features, allows for better interaction
Cons 1.3 megapixel; Are you kidding me?
Summary Great idea for someone like me. I have an extremely low voice and always talk crap because of it. They think I am like forty years old and once they see my pic they usually shut up.
Pros I am sure it works great on XBox 360
Cons Not Mac compatible
Summary I'm not sure why cnet (and others) reviews this as mac compatible. I bought it for my mac. The instructions do not include setup info for the mac. I called the fine folk at XBox they don't seem to think its mac compatible or that they support it.
Pros none. This camera is overpriced garbage
Cons I can't see other people's cameras in texas holdem or uno. I set up the router to map all the ports as indicated on the ms live support page and it still doesn't work. What a piece of ****.
Pros it works best when unplugged. If you plan on buying a train set for your kids this Christmas, clip the cord off then place it on the flat bed boxcarand and pretend the cam is a military laser or a big light being delivered to a car lot.
Cons You're paying money for this.
Summary If you are more than 10 away from the cam you may as well not buy it. MS should give it away or price it at 5.00 dollars and spin it as a novelty item. But as with most consumers; I suppose we must have everything including the carrying case too.
