Excerpt: This Webcam works ok, but not great. In my small moderately lit office, the video looks very dark. The other webcam I have adjusted the lighting well so that everything showed up natural and clear. Also, it can be a little choppy and blurry showing movement like when I shake my head in disbelief. In another room with very bright lighting the problems are not as noticeable.
Excerpt: It was easy to set up, plug it in and download the software off the Logitech web site. Though I wish it came with a disk. The picture setting didn't seem to matter, looks okay in all three of them. I like the wide screen setting. I would shop around for the best price.
Pros: clear picture, Quality, Fast Connection, Easy to Set Up
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: 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.
I'm in an odd position here-- rating this model--- for the foloowing reason:
4 February 2014
Summary: The only funny thing is that, although the HD webcam they shipped me works fine and does a completely acceptable job, IT has a different model number printed on it from the model above which I thought I purchased.. Since this is my first webcam, it doesn't make much difference to me, and I'm happy with my purchase and it does the job. Only, I think they shipped me a different Logitech HD webcam.
Summary: The Logitech software caused problems with my computer. I'm running Vista. I tried it on a second computer with Vista and had more problems like computer locking up and not waking up from sleep. Finally, so I could use the webcam, I uninstalled the software that came with the webcam and let Windows install the driver. I don't have the camera controls but at least my computer works better. Other than that, webcam is good.
Summary: I bought it few months ago for my laptop, but i tried to install it but couldn't it's doesn't install automatically as other accessories installed now I'm waiting for my friend to when he get a chance to see me he might be able to install it. it does not come with any cd or some installation software etc.
