Average Megapixel

The LifeCam HD-6000 has a fairly standard megapixel (1 megapixel) compared to most of the other webcams of this type and age.

If this webcam megapixel is too low for you then you might want to look at the Logitech B910 HD (£54.31) (5MP) which also has a higher rating.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 has a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Logitech B910 HD (£54.31), and the Foscam FI8918W (£56.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
