Summary: software provided with product does not work for winows 7 and some message appears each time - painful - accessing the logitech site for downloading the software is a sorrow filled experience - all in all it is a painful buying process - if a better product is available will chuck this out
Summary: The Logitech Quickcam Zoom has been a pain in the neck to use on my Mac (iBook G3/700 running Evocam webcam software).

Excerpt: I have owned four of these webcams and on all 4 units the microphone has stopped working, after 9 months I have given up and I'm now looking for somthing else.
