Summary: I tried out this camera on my desktop computer, which is several years old. Plugging the camera in was a bit tricky because the cord isn't very long. My tower is on the floor and the monitor is on the desk, and the cord was just barely long enough.
Summary: The camera comes in a new shiny box which probably makes it a nice looking gift. I own a few cameras, mostly from Logitech and I must say that in terms of performance, this is not up to par with high end Logitech offers. Pros: The camera is Skype certified and it works flawlessly with Skype.
Summary: I use this at my office with a MS Lync UC setup and it works great. The cam is low profile and not an eye catcher. My setup is Windows 7 x64, MS Office 2010 and MS Lync running on a Dell Lattitude E6420...

Really good, even for a logitech fanboy like myself!

Summary: I always had logitech webcams, from the first one I had till this one and I swore by them so when I got this one I was a bit suspicious - if it ain't broke, etc... I was actually pleasantly surprised!
Summary: This is a product you can count on for ease of set-up, allows for more than one person for video chat, and the voice quality is clear. I recommend this for our military families to keep in touch and the personal connection with loved ones.
