Summary: I have a macbook pro running on Mac OS X version 10.4.11 with a built-in i-sight that stopped functioning a while ago, beyond hope for recovery. The guys at the mac store recommended I purchase a new webcam. I really believe in buying the simplest, cheapest, best product, and when I stumbled across this webcam, the reviews seemed to champion the great value the quality and price this webcam offered.
Summary: The unit works fine. Be sure to follow directions to the t, however. And fix any issues with pc before installing driver. I had a thermal shutdown during the very lengthy driver and software install process which caused havoc with windows and took many steps to correct (mostly). The unit however, works very well, once sw is installed correctly.
Summary: I don't have the best computer in the world, but this little cam still works great. I can't go into too much detail as i'm using a 5 year old computer which i'm sure hinders some of the functionality, but I just want to say that when skyping with my wife, she noticed a great difference between this cam and another one I was using. She said the picture was much smoother and brighter (thanks to the right light technology). Audio was also great.
Summary: My only experience with web cams are those that came built into my Toshiba Netbbok and my daughter's boyfriends Notebook computer...This cam is heads and shoulders above those two. Clearest by far.. It is larger than it appears in the photo..
Summary: I needed a webcam so that my son could talk to his father while he was away and after researching and reading reviews we chose the Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision SE. When it arrived, we hooked both webcams up on our Vista computers and installed the software without any issues. We've used them for several months 2 - 4 times a week and have had no issues.
Summary: I have used 3 web cams, but this unit gives the clearest and sharpest video quality. The audio provided by this cam is clean, too. It works only with Windows, no driver for Linux. Check its dimensions before you buy so you won't be surprised. I think it's big to be used with a laptop. If you want the best picture and sound quality and don't care much about the size, then this is a good choice.
Summary: ok.... 2 things... It is a very well made cam (it doesn't feel like a flimsy plastic web cam), and it works on both mac and pc... i have a mac and a pc in my house, and i really like the fact that i can bring it back and forth between computers.... while on the mac it was easier to install (just plug it in, and restart the comp), on the pc it has alot of features which are not available on the mac version (like the auto lighting feature, the "follow me" feature, etc.
