NO GO IN WINDOWS 7 64 BIT O.S.

Summary: The title says it all. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit operating system running on an Intel i7 920 processor. Logitech's camera software will not install correctly. You can't get a picture at all. I spent over an hour on the phone with Logitech Support and also corresponded via emails. The net effect was no help. Their software gives Script Errors, Not Win32 application errors, and it thinks I am running an AMD 32 bit processor.
Summary: Tech support was LESS than helpful and I knew more than their TECH SUOPPORT reps knew. I can't really recommmend this device as is has a nice picture in high direct lighting circumstances but to get it to work with Logitech's garbage-ware, even the newest download on the web, is really hit or miss. It crashed my PC and I spent 3 days having to repair the bootsector of the PC and recover the MBR record. I recommend interested purchasers find a different device.
Summary: This is model 960-000050. Amazon also sells same item as model 960-000048 for a lower price. Logitech tells me they are identical. Buy the lower priced model 48, why waste your money on this duplicate model 50? I don't know why Amazon offers two models when the manufacturer says they are the same.
Logitech's new pro notebook cam worse than previous model

Summary: I bought this webcam hoping for an overall improvement from their previous Quickcam for Notebooks Pro, but I was so disappointed I had to return it. Pro's in con's, in comparison to the previous model: Pro: Clips onto my lapto better than the previous model, which always fell backwards. Slight more compact, smaller carrying case. Cons: When using camera in super mode (i.e. full motion video), anything moving becomes very blury.
Summary: My camera had to be returned due to showing vertical stripes on the right-hand side of the picture in low light conditions. I have previously used two separate examples of the Quickcam Pro 9000 (technically the same camera) and they did not have that problem. Searching the Logitech Forum I found that this is a problem with some of the manufactured examples which cannot be rectified.
Summary: This web cam is over-priced. Similarly specified cams are available at less than a third of its price and the Amazon price is one-third higher than other online stores. The focussing ring on the cam is fiddly and useless. After only a month the one on my cam stopped functioning altogether. I have replaced this disaster with a more robust, cheaper cam bought locally.
