Summary: I purchased this webcam so that we could show off our new baby to friends and family across the world and what i worthwhile investment it proved to be! The picture quality is great and the microphone is better than average (as long as doting grandparents don't get too close to it) :) The webcam proved so popular that i've since ordered three more for family members! Would not hesitate to recommend it!
Summary: This is an excellent webcam. This is the 2nd one i've bought .... this one for my daughter. Both installed and worked first time ... my only problem was that initially the microphone didnt appear to work but once you adjusted the logitech volume setting down from 'max' it burst into life .... counter-intuitive !!
Summary: Worked "out of the box" on several flavours of Ubuntu Linux, 8.10 and 9.04. Manual focus, not obvious from description, but no trouble in practice. Will focus down to a couple of cm. making it a useful low resolution magnifier.
