Summary: ... at first. I used it mainly for photos and yahoo chat. But lately every time I plug it in, my computer goes to the blue screen and has to do some sort of crash dump thing! It's ridiculous! It's not the first time I've had a problem with a Logitech product, but it will be the last. I've wasted too much money on products that work well the first 6 months and then crap out. Don't waste your money!
Summary: I bought this camera as a needed tool for an online class and had to return it. The minimum requirements do not state that it does not work with Windows 7. I could not install the drivers on my laptop, so I went to the Logitech website to try to find a driver for W7, but there is none. This camera is not supported for W7.
Summary: As a whole, I'd say its just okay. The picture quality itself is very dark and does not pick up the lighting in the room very well at all. Obviously that is a big factor. Installation and ease of use is pretty much perfect. Sound quality has not received any complaints. Overall for what you're paying its a pretty good deal, just make sure you plan to use it in extremely well lit rooms.
Summary: I first installed the program from the Logitech CD that came with the webcam but it gave me a lot of problems -- it slowed down my computer and gave me the blue death screen (which eventually makes it restart). I uninstalled the program and decided to just "plug-and-play". It works okay then. Picture quality is fine as it adjusts accordingly to light changes. However, the sound quality is TERRIBLE!
Summary: Great picture BUT that's where it ends. Whenever I shut the cam off it blue screens my laptop, the audio is nonexistent. Tech friend of mine did some checking and found some vista compatibility issues. If it wasn't for that I'd actually still have it hooked up to my laptop.
Summary: I agree with some of the other reviews out there - the sound is a real problem. It took me a while to figure this out, since the USB sound should be better, and so I didn't suspect the camera itself, instead blaming my connection, the cellphone interference etc. Now it makes more sense. I'm going to dump this camera and buy another one. If you're working with a USB headset or separate mic, the picture is reasonable.
Summary: I had this webcam for about a month and the lens fell out. I couldn't find it, so I had to purchase a second webcam. So far so good, I am not impressed with the video quality. I only use it occasionally, so it will suffice.
Summary: Logitech QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks (Silver) I sent this as a gift so we could use Skype to tutor our friend's children. The camera software caused their notebooks to crash and has caused ongoing havoc with their computer. Instead of helping we caused a lot of headaches. I should have heeded the reviews but I was a Logitech fan. Alas. Now that I think about this, I want to change the rating to 1 star.
