Conclusion

The webcam Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000 is a Plug & Play device with a very good price / performance ratio. It should normally be sufficient for all common applications in practice. Only if a higher resolution than 720p is necessary, it can not be used. However the camera was not designed for that.
