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!

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
Summary: DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT DUE TO ITS SOFTWARE! I installed the software for the QuickCam Pro 5000 on my desktop and my computer repeated crashed and elicited running error messages. I immediately removed the Logitech software from my desktop. The desktop now runs normally.
Summary: Be warned - if you use any of the new v7.0 Security Suites from ZoneAlarm (that include the new Kapersky Antivirus engine), LOGITECH WEBCAMS WILL NOT INSTALL FULLY - you will have only limited functionality AT BEST.
Cons: Logitech in their infinite wisdom had declared TWAIN IS DEAD (right from the lips of tech support).

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: Why do so many people have problems with web cam software/drivers?
Pros: Good picture quality.
Cons: The logitech drivers conflicted with my sound card drivers. I would get a HORRID loud noise about 25% of the time the any sound was made. Removing the logitech drivers got rid of the noise but rendered the web cam non functional (of course). Also the Picture taking functionality only worked at ex...
Summary: I would never buy webcam like this again.
Pros: It is nothing special about this product. Its price is very high and the technology does not measure up to the price. I am very disappointed in this product. I thought it would be very good because of its price.
Cons: It does not produce good picture qualities in low light conditions.
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.
