Summary: Camera looks great, but crashes system every time I plug in to USB port. I am running Windows XP SP 2 on a 2.4 GHz P4 with 1 GB memory so there should be no system issues. I downloaded the updated software from Logitech and this didn't fix the problem. I plan on returning the camera. Also, according to the support email I got back from Logitech, which was no help, "The Logitech video cameras are compatible with the USB 2.0 specification, but not compliant.
Summary: Go check out Logitech's own forums. The software for this camera crashes Windows if you have a new AMD dualcore CPU. I have contacted Logitech about this and they offer no fix nor pretend to have one in the works. Don't get this camera if you have a CPU like mine.
Summary: My experience with the Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 WebCam was not a good one. When loaded on my Toshiba laptop, the QuickCam Pro 5000 software caused all of my audio files (Windows Media, iTunes, CDs, and e-mail "You've Got Mail") to sound like "The Chimpmunks." After spending one hour on the phone with Logitech support and Toshiba support, I gave up, removed the Logitech software from my system, and returned the entire package to the store.
Summary: I bought the Pro 5000 web cam on a recommendation from a friend. I wish I had done a bit more back ground reading such as going on to the Logitech web site and looking at what the forums were talking about. Then I would have seen hundreds of people logging in to 'computer crashes when video cam is activated'.
XP Compatibility Issue - Great Camera, shame about the drivers!

Summary: I have a Quickcam Pro 4000 at work which works fantastically well, quality of sound and picture is great. So because I'm off travelling for work soon I thought let me get a camera for home so I could keep in touch with my family. I bought the Quickcam Pro 5000 expecting great things. Sure enough the image quality and sound were much improved and my kids enjoyed the gimicky software that comes with it. Great I thought, everything worked fine for a few days then WHAM ....
Summary: Ciao a tutti. Dopo una lunga ricerca, svoltasi principalmente nei vari forum che si trovano sul web, e anche dopo aver letto le due recensioni positive presenti su ciao.it, ho preso la decisione di acquistare come mia prima webcam una Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000. Le premesse erano tutte positive, ma quando, contento del mio acquisto, sono tornato a casa e dopo una facile installazione del software (che ritengo pessimo), la delusione è stata grandissima.
Summary: Seit Jahren bin ich von der Qualität der Logitech Produkte begeistert. Also musste meine Webcam auch von Logitech sein. Amazon hat wie gewohnt zuverlässig schnell geliefert. Nach dem Installieren der Software "Quick Cam 9,5" dann der absolute Horror. Bei jedem Aufruf eines Programmes wurde es sofort mit einer ganzen Reihe von Fehlermeldungen wieder geschlossen.
Summary: Habe zwei Quickcam Pro 5000 für meinen Sohn und mich gekauft. Software wie beschrieben auf zwei brandneue Rechner installiert. Danach auf beiden Rechnern Systemabsturz. Sogenannter STOP Fehler. Habe daraufhin aufgrund der Empfehlung von Microsoft neueste Trieber Software installiert. Dies erbrachte keine Besserung: immer noch Systemabturz. Anruf bei Logitech Support: 16 Minuten Warteschleife. Danach schnippischer Supportmitarbeiter.
