Summary: I was very happy with this webcam and its face accesories and avatars, until I tried to record a video. It will show me moving around and talking until I hit the start recording button, then the camera freezes up and stays frozen until I stop recording. It is fun ti use on the messengers but it is supposed to record and it does not. After finding this out, I am not pleased with it at all and am probably returning it, if I can not find a solution.
Summary: Would you by a great car with square tires? I was excited to upgrade from the previous version of this camera so that I could remove the velcro from my laptop. Unfortunately, the challenge of creating a clip which will work on Dell's round-edged inspiron has once again evaded Logitech. The velcro remains.
Summary: I was sold on the reviews that I read and ordered the quick cam pro. Upon opening the box the first thing I noticed was the lack of proper instruction material. You have to read between the lines in the Quick Campro user's guide. If you have anything connected to the printer port, like a printer you will have to remove it and install the cam cable. Which means you can't use the printer.
Summary: I find that the adjustments on the Quick Cam Pro are very precise and if I use the manual mode and reset all the settings in each situation / condition such as lighting, color etc., I can take a pretty good still picture. The video motion however is another story. The speed is such that all movements are jerky and far from real life. This is especially a major irritant when conferencing between our office locations.
Summary: Camera, mic, drivers, and software all worked fine. The clip will not hold properly on the rather wide edge of the Thinkpad T-series laptop. This caused the unit to constantly slip around and fall off. This is somewhat surprising from Logitech considering popularity of T-series laptops. Logitech Support acknowledged repeated emails but did not offer any solution or resolution.
Summary: If You own an IBM T - Series NoteBook ( or any IBM NoteBook with the raised Edge from the Flat surface of the LCD Screen ), you can ignore this product because of the clip which is used to attach this Cam to the top of your IBM NoteBook Screen. The Clip will slip on the outer surface of your Laptop Screen and you'll end up with a camera pointing downwards onto your keyboard everytime.
