Summary: We bought this webcam as a gift my my inlaws to be able to talk to our kids and now we can see them and they can see us=). The cam works great and it was very easy set up. If you are looking for a good buy and wanting to get great quality this is the route to go. You can also take still shots with this cam. It has a clear pic and the mic also works very well. All in all this was a great buy.
Summary: The Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Web Cam is a well built, easy to use web cam that has a very nice picture quality. The base is great because it is designed to sit flat or on a monitor or notebook computer with ease. The only real drawback is that even though this cam works with windows 7, the driver comes from windows and no logitech software is available to use it in windows 7.
Summary: I had a logitech STX but it would not be in sync with voice. This one the pro 5000 talked about stablily and that it syncs better so I took a chance as I like Logitech products. It syncs very well, piture is clear...would like color to be better but...it is a cam....is what it is...for the price...terrific product. my pc is not one of the best but it's decent for what I use it for. The cam is awsome... Simple to hook up and understand and download drivers.
Summary: The Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 showed up under a few reviews as being an above average camera with a CCD chip. In fact, there are many articles or reviews that indicated the unit was CCD capable. Even the description in the eBay seller’s description was copy and paste from one of those reviews. I, however, stumbled upon another review while the unit was in transit after purchase that indicated the unit was not CCD.
