Summary: I have two laptops. It works with one of them (newer one), but not with another one (older one). I'm trying to find out the reason why, but I'm not a computer expert so..I don't know what is wrong with it. I guess that's because it is usb1.1. usb 2.0 ports are supposed to be working with usb1.1 devices, but in the real world, that's not always true. So be careful if your computer is old.
Summary: I've tried using this product again and again, every time there is a driver update from Logitech. I continually have issues with the driver either not working, locking up, or slowing down my system. I would not recommend you purchase this product.
Summary: Got this camera yesterday from Amazon, installed drivers from logitech website to avoid the spyware on the CD. Camera worked, but my McAfee Antivirus crashed. Called Logitech support, after holding for 15 min. (Toll number), was told by the person - "well if it crashes then you have to choose between the antivirus and the camera!
Summary: Ditto on the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) reviews that I've seen for this product. I had read the warnings before buying, but I have a relatively new, mainstream PC that I have never had a single problem with, and figured I would be ok. The price was right. I installed the software (which checks online for newer versions than what is on the CD...there was none), plugged in the device when asked to by the on-screen prompt, and the machine immediately gave me a BSOD.
Summary: grainy photos, slow jerky movement. But worse than that is the program NEVER completely uninstalled. Support has head up rectum - after informing them I uninstalled the program but the program never fully uninstalled, I was informed that I must have done something wrong. Suddenly its my fault that parts of the program remain. Also NOTE: Software that comes with camera includes BACKWEB - if you are unfamiliar with backweb - it is SPYWARE.
Summary: Your satisfaction with this repackaged QuickCam Express (now with microphone!) will depend completely on what you want to do with it. If you are looking for a webcam to use with an IM client it should be fine - the image isn't great, but the compression used on video IM is aggressive enough you'll never notice the difference. If, on the other hand, you want to use it as a web cam, keep looking.
Summary: I actually thought this was a defective product because I just couldn't adjust the grainy, unbalanced colors or jumpy movements caused by low frame rates. Well, from what I read here, it looks like it is just a product of very low quality, unacceptable at any price range. I will think twice before I buy another Logitech.
