Not compatible with Realtek HD audio card

Philippe Botteri, Amazon
14 May 2008
  • Summary: Unfortunately, the driver is not compatible with my sound card (Realtek HD audio card) in my Sony Vaio RA820G. I can install the webcam and its works but I have horrible interferences on the sound. There is a compatibility problem between the driver and the sound card.

You can get the same product $12 cheaper - from Amazon!

Gabe, Amazon
30 January 2008
  • Summary: This product seems to have no advantage over the product which bears the same name, without the words "for Skype". Why would you buy this when the Quickcam 5000 (without the words "for Skype" attached to it) for $12 cheaper? From AMAZON! Check it out: Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 WebCam

Logitech really messed up this one

Mark B., Newegg
28 February 2007
  • Summary: What was Logitech thinking!?
  • Pros: Worked with TWAIN up till the 10.X release.
  • Cons: Logitech in their infinite wisdom had declared TWAIN IS DEAD (right from the lips of tech support). This means that if you upgrade to Vista, you HAVE to use 10.X of the software (older installers won't work under vista). Say good bye to MS Office integration, or any app that captures via TWAIN.

Software crashes with AMD 64 X2 CPU

mflanzer, Amazon
22 February 2007
  • 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.

Bad Software

Elijah M., Newegg
1 December 2006
  • Summary: Why do so many people have problems with web cam software/drivers?

TU N., Newegg

  • Summary: I would never buy webcam like this again.

Install Problems

Katherine Dean, Amazon
29 January 2006
  • 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.
