Summary: The Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Web Cam is a well built, easy to use web cam that has a very nice picture quality. The base is great because it is designed to sit flat or on a monitor or notebook computer with ease.
Summary: The camera works great. Mine works just like a completely brand new one for a fraction of the cost. However, the software that comes with the camera was a bit lacking. It was basically a burned copy of the 32 bit software. They didn't even include the Vista X64 installation software.
Summary: Purchased this for my girlfriend so that we could skype while I was away at school. The camera was great an fit well on top of her 19" flat panel monitor. However with all the technological advances in web cams (eg.
Summary: Finding information on what web cams will work on a Mac is not simple. Apparently Macs with OSX 10.4.4 and are compatible with any web cam that is UVC configured. Finding out what is UVC configured is not easy either, but this Pro 5000 is. Apparently not all Logitech cams have this configuration.
Summary: After reading numerous other reviews highlighting habitual problems with Logitech software, crashes, bugs and related issues were my main concern of owning this webcam. However, I did not have any issues nor did my girlfriend, who also got one.
Summary: I've had this web cam for about a month now and I have nothing bad to say about it. Some reviews in the past mentioned that the lens cover comes off too easily and they're right, but it takes all but a second to put it back on - when you're using it. We hardly use it.
Summary: The overall performance of the QuickCam Pro (USB) is very good. In rooms with adequate lighting - or outdoors - the picture quality is excellent. It sometimes has problems with adjusting the brightness of the picture when the background has more light than the foreground.
Pros: Excellent picture quality for a product of this pricerange
Cons: Small lens, needs adequate lighting to sustain higher framerates
Summary: In just a few months I have purchased three of these cameras; the first camera was for ourselves, and then I purchased two more, one for one set of grandparents and another for the other grandma. The main use of this camera is with web conferencing (via Skype).
Summary: I just got this webcam so I could have PC-PC calls with my husband while he is in Europe. I choose Logitech because I have used so many of their products and have always been satisfied. I also hate mix-matching computer components in case of incompatibility.
