Summary: I even forgot I had this thing, now they want me to review it. Basically, I could not get it to work. I did everything they told me to do with their tech support, downloading drivers, installing and uninstalling. Not that I ever got it to work, but also the clip on it was no good at holding it onto my laptop. I finally gave up on it, but I can't remember if I returned it and got a refund-- I think it was too late by then.
Summary: I haven't been able to test this cam yet. It didn't dawn on me that my operating system wouldn't be backward enabled. The ad mentioned several operating systems this cam would work on.... but not Windows 7, my system.
Summary: Great camera and decent price. Works reliably over skype and the sound quality is excellent.
Pros: This camera just works well. I really like logitech cameras. I just bought a different for my Dad. Sharp picture, excellent microphone, great software. I like the camera stand that comes with it too.
Summary: Cost was a factor for me when I bought Logitech Quickcam for my notebook. So for the money, it's okay. It's easy to use, it is very portable and given that I didn't want to spend a lot to upgrade to a laptop that had a built-in camera, I'm satisfied for now. The picture quality is fuzzy - meaning it isn't clear and defined. Sometimes there are vertical lines running through and the color seems unnatural at times.
Summary: This has worked well. It has excellent resolution, the software was easy to install and adjust. It came up immediately in skype. The microphone is OK. The webcam attaches easily to both of our two laptops.
The problem is the stand needed for a workstation monitor. The base is small and not sufficiently heavy, the pole is long and, amazingly, doesn't lock into the stand. It tips over at the slightest provocation, the rod detaching from the base in a clatter.
Summary: I bought the Quickcam Pro for Notebooks because I have an increasingly growing number of people I want to talk to that aren't anywhere close to me. This model caught my eye because it works for notebooks, but has an awesome stand for desktops. Not to mention it is super sleek and small.
Aesthetics are always important, but the quality is where the substance is and this camera has amazing quality. Skype HQ video is really awesome and I use it all the time.
Summary: This newer notebook quickcam has features not found in the older cams.
I like the automatic light sensing adjustment, and easy focus.
If desired, the contrast and other light features can be adjusted manually. This is a great item for the price.
Summary: Bought this after much research and looking at reviews on this board. Everything installed easy, no hang-ups and works great with microsft IM. The quality is great - even with just the glow of your monitor. Some people have mentioned difficulty with getting it to attach on the screen - it's not a problem. I think those people didn't look at the directions (and image) of how to attach it.
