Poor software = only two stars

Summary: In the box you will find not only the webcam, but also a headset for use while using Skype or other internet phone / chat services. The webcam has a flexible support that you can conform to your LCD monitor for a secure fit. The webcam itself is pretty nice and I understand the good reviews that it has received for the quality of the video. I plan on using the webcam with Skype and the hardware is exactly what I needed.
Summary: Image wise, this cam is probably the best in the market, period . However, Logitech needs to solve some incompatibility issues with windows xp. After installing the Quickcam 5000 my computer would only boot up to a black screen. A quick web search found many others around the globe having the same problems. Apparently it has to do with some audio features of the cam, nonetheless I had to go back to my old cam until Logitech comes up with a decent solution.
Summary: I've tried several different webcams, and the Logitech 5000 by far has the best image. Its especially good under low light conditions, where the other cameras I tried didn't work very well. I use the 5000 regularly for videoconferencing via Skype, and it works very well with this service. The software, however, is downright awful. When trying to set the audio, for instance, the whole system will freeze up completely.
Summary: I bought this camera for my husband who is stationed in Afganistan. The picture is very clear and we enjoy being able to see eachother. However, the sound is very unclear...difficult to understand. Most of the time we leave the sound off. My web cam is a creative and it has a mike that is separate from the camera. We definitely prefer my mike, he says that the sound is clear and reliable. Maybe this webcam works better in a more secluded environment? Not impressed.
Summary: The camera arrived within a reasonable time. Installation was quick and easy, but it messed up the sound on my PC, so that all sound came through the headphones instead of the speakers. I did nto explicitly select an option to do this, nor could I find one to undo it. The camera itself worked wonderfully. And I took some excellent pictures. Aside from the sound issue, everything seemed fine. It wanted me to restart my PC to finish installation, so I then did so.
Summary: I've intalled this on a couple of machines - and have had a good number of "Blue Screen of Death" errors, even on machines where it installed and worked well at first. The drivers are extremely large, and install too many applications (MSN, Yahoo etc) which I don't want - the cut down version (drivers only) is difficult to find on the logitec site. I brought it for use with Skype, rather than all those other apps.
Summary: I bought this Webcam for my wife's laptop which is a new Toshiba L20 model. I duly installed the device as directed, and when invited to do so connected to the web for the latest software. The next action was to re start the PC. That is when the trouble started, it would not shut down. Eventually I had to disconnect all power (including the battery) and then start it manually.
Summary: Bought this camera based on the other excellent Logitech products. I believe that this camera is excellent in it's performance and features....however you must check the compatability of your USB interface on your mother board! I have a new DELL running on XP SP2 Media Center, pentium 4, 3.2mhz, 2 gig of RAM which is more than up to the job as stated in the specifications.
Summary: Ciao a Tutti ho comperato da poco, ( e si potrebbe dire mal me ne incolse), la webcam della Logitech modello QuickCam Pro 5000 che ho provveduto seppure con un po' di titubanza a collegare con il mio desktop superpotente, che ha circa un TB di memoria sul HD, ma all'inizio la webcam che mi era stata presentata come una potenza così non è stata anzi pensate che dvo aver installato il software ed accortomi dello sciagurato acquisto effettuato pensai che fosse il caso di...
Pros: risoluzione video, dimensioni della webcam .
Cons: prezzo alto per la qualità del prodotto,audio derivante dal microfono, software della webcam,
Summary: Die Quali von der Cam ist sehr gut. Zudem funktioniert die Funktion "Right Light" sehr gut. In einem sehr dunklem Raum erscheint man zwar etwas blau, aber die Cam holt nur aus dem Licht eines Flats ne Menge raus. Man ist klar zu erkennen. Die Bildquali der Cam ist als super zu bezeichnen. Daher gäbe es 5 Sterne. Wenn da nicht diverse Probleme mit der Software aufgetreten wären. Das erste Problem war dass die Effekte der Cam nicht laufen wollten.
