Nice camera for skype
28 June 2011
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: 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.
So much better than the altenatives, yet a little incomplete

Summary: This camera is a wonderful product, taking great quality pics and video. As others have mentioned the mounting system is extreemly clumsy and the camera easiy knocked off the screen if the usb cord is snagged (try using a mouse and not getting the cord tangled with the usb cable). My solution? Ditch the stupid folding clip and stick a spot of velcro on the back of the cam and on the case of my laptop screen. Now it wont be pulled off so easily.
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.
Summary: This camera takes excellent pictures (1280x960 stills and 640x480 video) even in low light where my other cameras have had problems. It hooks over the top of the laptop screen and is held there by its own weight. This is a bit of a problem since mine often doesn't sit level and moves around if the cable (30" USB) gets moved. It says it will work with any laptop but the mounting won't acommodate the thickness of my Toshiba Tablet PC when it is in the tablet configuration.
Excellent framerate, picture quality, CPU, ease of use

Summary: I have tested about 30 USB cameras for use on PCs running videoconferencing software, because that's what I do for a living. This camera hits all the hot buttons. And virtually no other camera I have tested had done as well, except a few other Logitechs, and some Firewire cameras that are much more expensive. I used it on a Windows XP Pro SP1 laptop. 1. Full 30 frames per second live video in normal room light 2.
Summary: This little baby is great (and I do mean little)! The picture is clear as a bell and setup was painless. We wanted them so while my wife was in AZ for 5 weeks training for her new job, our kids would be able to see her each night, using the included Yahoo video messenger program. I liked the design so much, we purchased a second one for our home computer, even though it is not a notebook. I just set it up using a picture frame, on top of our monitor.
Summary: I've used this web cam for more than a year when I trave . It's perfect for the task, fitting into a small mesh bag with a boom mike headset. The supplied case protects it well. In use, the supplied mounting is a bit of genius: it will hang happily and steadily from the several laptops I've used it with. Learning the technique of mounting it correctly may take a few moments to master. You are essentially seeeking the web cam's center of gravity.
Summary: trust me guys...I read a lot of reviews for this product and did not believe that it could be this good.I also took the recommendations of skeptics and tried to avoid it. I first installed the software and then rebooted the computer. Then, I attached the webcam and voila!....absolutely unbelievable quality. Works fantastic in the dark and the mic is great too...I have used a lot of webcams previously, but this beats them hands down.
