Not as Linux-friendly as expected

Summary: I'm sure it works fine on standard installations of Ubuntu/Mint/Fedora but if you're running anything remotely unusual you might have to spend more time configuring your system. As I said above it works flawlessly on windows.
Pros: Works absolutely great on windows. On linux: same great image and video quality as on windows, auto-focus works (mostly), light detection works great.
Cons: Installation was a disappointment. My system runs on debian sid with a minimal interface so I'm fairly used to a bit of configuration with new software and peripherals but this turned out to be quite an issue. Some of the software I installed required specific (older) versions of libc* packages; after attempting to manually set up a separate library for this device I finally installed it through WINE which also required some work. It works pretty much as expected thro...
Excerpt: I'm using Logitech C310 with Raspberry PI B. The camera does not have a IR light and thus you cannot acquire images at night. This is the reason for 3 star. The software, fswebcam and motion both work after rebooting.
Summary: This is not an extremely expensive camera nor is it super cheap. It's a nice mid priced camera that works very well. I've had no problems with it whatsoever. The only thing that is a downside to this camera is the constant popups from the camera software that is automatically installed when you install the camera. The popups knock you out of what you're trying to do. All the software does is allow you to zoom as well as add video effects. Very annoying.
Pros: Clear and crisp video Built - in mic Ability to zoom and add video effects
Cons: Clamp does not fit firmly on fairly thin monitors BIGGEST COMPLAINT - The Logitech software that comes with the product is very bothersome. While using the camera with Skype or trying to do anything else on your computer, the Logitech camera program will bump you out of what you're doing and become your active screen. Very, very annoying.
Summary: I do have the latest drivers from the Logitech site, too. Only legal software. No freeware of shareware installed. Vipre Antivirus. That's about it.
Pros: All the pros as in previous posts below. Great for Skype (when it works).
Cons: Anyone else seeing the random KS.SYS BSOD? Unplug this camera and they stop. Plug it back in, and often the PC wan't even boot. The BSOD is so quick at boot that you can hardly see what it says. Endless reboot loop somethimes. Win7 64 FULLY UPDATED, on various ASUS (AMD & Intel) Motherboards with CURRENT BIOS. I have TWO of these and both display the same problem.
Excerpt: The Logitech webcam c310 is 5-megapixel with excellent result. Installation is quick and I established video chats using number of programs including Skype, Google Chat, Windows Live Messenger and more with no problems. The c310 USB camera mounts interchangeable between a laptop and a desktop, and the basic design consists of a small oval webcamera attach to a rotating plastic base mount.
Summary: Will invest in the Logitech C910, or 920 next time, the extra money is worth it.
Cons: Should have bought a more expensive webcam, it's 720p is misleading. The frame-rate drops too low, and it does not have auto-focus, it is fixed-focus, you should really invest in a true 1080P auto-focus webcam, if your PC has the power to run it (mine does) but this is a fine entry level webcam for $30 so my parents can see the grand kids 2,000 miles away.
