Summary: Warning to anyone running the Window Media Center Edition 2005 (MCE) operating system - This webcam will not work with any messenger program (Yahoo, MSN, AIM)! From Logitech Tech Support: Thank you for your recent inquiry about your QuickCam Pro 4000. I understand that you would like to know if QuickCam is supported on the Window Media Center Edition 2005 OS.
Pros: Good image quality, face tracking works reasonably well.
Cons: Very flimsy mount. Software not ready for prime time. Can't post to a webpage without additional software subscription. Little or no control over software installation. Uninstall fails to remove completely.
Pros: Able to zoom in and pan without having to manually twist and turn webcam. It also comes with a handy flexible base to mount on just about anything, including laptops.
Cons: The software is a major pain in the arse. udates are needed almost immediately off the internet. Tech lines take 20 minutes to get through. I've had to uninstall the software only to re-install with the upodates off the web to get it going. And all that t
