Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Web Cam

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.
Summary: Do Amazon sellers provide for MacMini owners? My research so far shows only a Logitech 4000 is compatible for MacMini users; OK with Skype? Competent suggestions are appreciated, including a possible order... Cheers, Rob
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...
Summary: I bought this based on the fact that it is supposed to be one of the best in dim light. Admittedly, it does boost low level light conditions very vell but with a major drawback - as it boosts the signal for low light it drops the frame rate for video by half.
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.
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.
Summary: I just got my webcam and I installed it immideatly. Everything was working fine. I was checking to make sure everything worked and messed around with it a little bit. After 10-15min, my monitor just went black...and I had to reboot the computer.
Summary: The webcam worked GREAT! An exception to that, the software messed up both of my computers! I read all those reviews about the problems with the software, i thought by now Logitech notice the problem and fixed it, pssh i was wrong.

Summary: This is a wonderful product with one exception. The software has some conflicts with other programs that deal with photos such as Adobe photoshop and other commercial photo programs. It causes problems with Adobe Acrobat too. If you buy only download the drivers and not the software.
Summary: Purchased the Pro 5000 as a Christmas present to myself. The clarity of the picture is no where near as sharp and clear as my old Intel PC webcam. This is due to the CMOS lens used, which is more of a wide angle lens. Found it was hard to adjust settings when a white or light colored shirt was worn.
