Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Web Cam

treyk64, Ebay
2 January 2010
  • 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.

Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 WebCam

NateB., Rate it all!
24 February 2008
  • Summary: Originally I bought this to use it with Skype in linux (gentoo 2007.0). It is supported to a minimal extent (by a 3rd party driver, not logitech), and wouldn't work with Skype. The various hoops that had to be jumped though to get the small amount of functionality out of it that I did were certainly not worth it. I ended up trading it with someone who had a QC Pro 4000. That camera uses the pwc driver, and works just fine (skype, mplayer, whatever).

Software its weakness

G.R. "gara56", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Quickcam 4000 (USB1.1) but was very disappointed with the software drivers that came with it. I also went to the website to download the latest software but encounter several problems. The installation was straight forward--load the disk, reboot and connect the camera to a 2.0 USB slot. The setup was real easy and the picture/color quality was actually very good. Here's where I run into the problems.

Good webcam, if its compatible with your PC

stem_cell, Amazon
20 October 2006
  • Summary: Read the great reviews here so I bought two Pro 5000 webcams. Installed with the included software (v9.5) and got the notorious BSOD (blue screen). Tried on 2 different boxes, both nearly new mid-range Dells; same result. Software installs fine but as soon as the computer detects the webcam hardware it barfs. Forums on the web (including Logitech) show that this problem has a high occurence rate and not just on Dells.
