Excerpt: Spent a long time looking for the perfect web cam to go along with giving cyber music lessons. Microphone is very clear and concise as far as input pick-up clarity needed for accurate assessment of musical compostitions and performance review. The differing levels of available video compression is a plus especially when needing to critique visual aspects of proper attack and carriage of percussive music implements and is perfect for my needs and wants.
Excerpt: The Logitech C525 webcam has a great, clear picture. I use the camera to teach piano via Skype. The sound is good - great microphone, which is extremely important in my business...and the picture is clear. I love the ability to adjust the position of the webcam rather than move the monitor. Easy installation - which is also great for those of us who don't want to spend time setting things up. Five minutes max.
Excerpt: I bought this with the intention of recording a presentation and streaming it live. The recording was spotty and I cancelled the streaming because took a while for me to set it up. I am not sure if the booklet did not provide all the details or if I did not understand but it was disappointing.
Excerpt: It was easy to set up and quite portable. However, before using this product for a professional recording of a group meeting, you will need to get used to the functionality first. You will have to physically attend to this product while in a meeting because chances are it may not record conversations or video.
Excerpt: I purchased this unit after speaking with my computer guy about which unit to buy. Although he did not mention this unit specifically, his recommendations most closely matched the Logitech C525. I have found the video clarity slightly less than what I expected for the money, but am new to this so I will defer judgment until I have more experience. The size and ease of installation are definite bonuses as is the easy to understand booklet.
Excerpt: I dropped in to my local Staples store to pick up a webcam so I could Skype an interview with a job placement firm. I'm a full-time freelancer, and any edge I can get on the other editors out there is only in my favor. I had resisted the webcam thing for a long time, but if that's what it takes, then that's what I'll do. It worked very well right out of the box, and I went to the web site to download the appropriate software instead of letting Windows do its thing.
Excerpt: Essentially a nice little camera. Has very good resolution and a few really nice options. BUT, when I use the camera with Skype, at the end of the call, it freezes the image and I have to do a hard resart to regain the computer. I have no such trouble when shooting "snapshots". I have to call tech support ant Staples to look for a rememdy. Otherwise I'll return it to Staples.
Excerpt: I had a client express a desire to communicate by Skype so I ran out and got this to hook up to my desktop box. It worked perfectly immediately. I did go to the web site to download the software behind it. It would have installed automatically with Windows 8 but I'm running 7.
