Summary: This product was listed as new--yet the audio cuts in and out and I have to restart my skype so that the other person can even HEAR me. Not sure if this product is defective--or if it's the brand itself.
Summary: I got it to work on XP, but never in VISTA. It always tells me that I need a new driver despite just loading it. It seems like it doesn't see it. So, the bottom line is drivers can not be loaded.
Summary: I ordered this camera for my girlfriend. It installed easy enough but we could never get it to work with iChat, which was the messenger that I was using.It was not as simple as install and use.
Summary: I agree with whoever said too much software installed. I prefer plug and play, no hassle. I also think the image is awful and I have a pretty good computer system. It had static on image and just did not look clear at all. My 8 year old quickcam had a nice picture so I expected this to be nice also.....no luck! Also, the box says Mac compatible, which I thought was cool since I have 2 systems (WinXP/Mac) and then I get home, go to support website & see it's not for Mac.
Pros: Looks good. Can snap picture with one press of button.
Cons: Picture quality not that good, not even after many tweaks. A whole lot of unnecessary software installs to your computer with no option to avoid it. I had to restore my computer twice because of all the unnecessary changes that were made to my computer.
Summary: I have been used this product before, the quality is okay, not very impressive though. Now i am using other cameras like IP Camera. I am lucy to find out that some of the IP Camera like IP Camera 8000 can act as webcam, and can be placed anywhere in my house and be viewed anywhere in the world. That's too convenience for me because i did not have to hook camera to my computer anymore.
Summary: Not what I was expecting at all. The Picture is noisy no matter what you do. The microphone is next to useless. Cannot set gain and exposure to automatic independant of each other, which might help with the noise. The drivers are a heafty download of 38 MB WITHOUT software and take up 100 MB on your Hard Drive. There is no way to use this cam on linux eitehr since it doesn't use regular logitech drivers.
Summary: I bought this camera 2 weeks ago. Unlike many other posters here, I had little trouble with the software. I had it installed in 10 minutes. The video is good. Picture gets grainier under artificial light or low lit conditions, but it it is still decent. The one BIG drawback I found with this webcam is how sensitive the microphone is. When talking to someone over AOL IM, we both have to wear headphones.
