Great webcam, but video-chat is not longer available.

Summary: I have enjoyed using this webcam to Skype with my daughter who is away at college. I was intrigued about using video-chat (w/o Skype) because another review had said how clear it was, and the clarity of the picture has been an issue with an earlier webcam (not by Logitech). However, when you try to use the video-chat feature, a pop-up message appears and informs you that Logitech no longer offers this feature (not since July, 2013), and you are urged to use Skype...
Summary: For the money you cannot beat the craftsmanship of Logitech. As a previous PC support technician, this little webcam delivers sharp images and even works great under low light environments.

Summary: Very impressed with how easy it was to use this on Skype. Just plugged it in and there it was. I am running Windows 8.

But so far, so good. Only thing I will say... this was not in retail packaging.
Summary: This is by far the most expensive webcam I have bought, but it is well worth EVERY penny. The video is CRYSTAL CLEAR and the built in microphone is wonderful. I get constant compliments on how clear and clean I sound while on Skype, Ventrilo, Teamspeak, or any of my other VOIP clients. Seriously, get this, it's well worth it.
On perfect time, conditions, just what I needed it.

Summary: On perfect time, conditions, just what I needed it. Software it's easy to download and install. I don't like that in my laptop I can't actually use the camera because I already have one so the software do not let me changed it but I need it for a diferent computer so is not a big deal.
