Does Not Work As Advertised, Per Many Users

J.R., Amazon
31 January 2012
  • Summary: Shortly after I got this as a gift, which cost $130.00 at the time, the pan and tilt stopped working. Then I saw that many other users pan and tilt never worked. Now that I have Windows 7, I found out that Logitech never bothered to update the drivers from XP to Windows 7. Windows 7 automatically installed a basic webcam driver, but I found out the hard way that there is no audio driver support.

Downgrade from the older Orbit

Evan Ross, Amazon
19 June 2010
  • Summary: I upgraded from the Orbit to the Orbit MP and found that it is a major step backwards in quality. The software control panel is much harder to use, with very coarse and twitchy sliders. You can't type numbers into the edit boxes. Also, although still images are wonderful, the quality of live video for webcams and chat clients is horrendous.

Computer crashes every time

Irene Rheinwald, Amazon
25 November 2007
  • Summary: I bought this just over two months ago and it has nearly destroyed my PC.

DOES NOT WORK - DO NOT BUY

FBC IT Solutions, Amazon
21 May 2007
  • Summary: I thought it would be neat to converse with relatives using webcam. So I looked into Skype and saw that it recommended Logitech. I ordered two of the best webcams Logitech offered and shipped one to me and one to my sister. My sister and I are both IT professionals. We wasted - I don't know how many hours trying to get this thing to work. It is very flakey. It would work and then not work.

Logitech QuickCam Orbit MP Webcam - XP failure

David Burden, Amazon
16 January 2007
  • Summary: I was excited to get this webcam from Amazon, but once it arrived, I had nothing but problems. I'm IT literate, I work in IT, but I just couldn't get this camera to work on my XP PC. I'm not entirely sure how Logitech can put this product on general release to the public or continue to do so. The first install (with the CD in the box) actually killed my PC. The PC would not start-up properly and blue screen during boot-up and reboot.
