serves its purpose

Summary: graphics aren't the best but for being an older version, i am happy with the result. it was a pain figuring out how to make it work for vista, but i somehow did it. its nice to talk to and see my friends rather than just typing to them.
Summary: easy to set up and install! would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an easy and inexpensive way to communicate via webcam. i now use an imac for this purpose (which has a much better quality picture) but when i bought this product it was exactly what i needed and works like a charm!
Summary: This product performs up to my expectations. The price was around $15 shipped, it worked fine on my PC. The only complaint was the software that came with it did not run properly for me in windows xp. When I just installed the drivers, it was all good. When I installed the software also, the product did not work well. Logitech wants you to jump through a few hoops to get the software to install properly, I did not want to spend the time to do it.
Summary: If you're a high tech, time is money, quality is the key type techno, this is not for you. If you're a spread apart family that would enjoy seeing the grandkids grow this is the camera for you. It's a free long distance phone/video call that can pre-planned to a certain day and time that the whole family can sit in on. Slight delay on movement and speech but the old and the young find it fabulous. Used it with Skype program, free download. Enjoy!! We do.
Summary: I've had this cam for about 5 years now, and though I've finally decided to upgrade to the Pro (sticking with Logitech), the original Quickcam Messenger is a wonderful camera for the price. And, surprisingly enough, is still working as well as it did the day I bought it (and paid $70 for it), with the exception of the missing stand that was chewed up by my puppy. The image is a little grainy, and adjusting the colors can be a pain, but overall this is a good little cam.
Summary: I have Windows 98 ME and I like mine. I like to buy and test various products and don't understand why others are having problems. Perhaps their PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements for this product; and one shouldn't complain about all the software or the process one needs to go through to get started. I ran mine on Windows ME with an AMD Duron processor. You can't beat the price and a built in microphone.
