5.0 out of 5 stars Great perfromance and value for money. 28 Jun 2007
I bought this WebCam recently and I must say I'm glad I did. I would recommend it for everyone who looks for something small, stylish, with very good performance and yet not expensive.
Logitech WebCam is easy to set up and use, with very clear picture and microphone option. I use it with laptop and mainly for Skype and I have no problems. If someone likes to chat I think it's great it has option to connect to different instant message providers.
Quick Cam user panel is easy to use and has all information needed.
Five stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cam, great extras 16 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase
I bought this cam as a cheap way of getting a webcam for chats to friends and family on MSN. It works exactly as it should and I'd have been happy if that was it.

Logitech have released a couple of 'gadgets' for Vista ( yes, it will work with Vista ) one of which allows you to use it as a security camera, triggered by any motion in front of it. Not something that everyone would use, I'lla dmit, but a nice free feature nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for the price 18 Jun 2008
By G. Horsham VINE VOICE

This is my first intruction to a webcam and am mightily impressed. I never really thought I would have the need to use one of these, but on a recent visit to our cousins who had one, I decided to "join the club". Simple to install from CD, then plug in the webcam and you are away - so simple. I also installed Skype and registered a free account with them, and within one hour of receiving the device in the post it was installed and we were having a "live" web chat with our cousins - and all free to connect.

To reaffirm how easy it is, my kids, both under 11, have used this on their own to connect to their cousins (I believe they held an X-Factor contest - I would not have bought it if I had known...). They love the special effect filters that they can apply to change the images they send, although I have not been able to find any more yet for this webcam.

I have given it 5 stars for easy of set up, easy of use and affordability. If I was going to buy another webcam though, I would pay a bit more to get some more features with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vista here I come! 18 Oct 2007
I bought this web cam just before a new PC with Vista. Vista was just out and the web cam didn't work well. But then things changed. Vista automatically uploads updates. So when I tried the web cam on a new laptop with Vista as the OS I didn't even have to put the driver disk in. It all set up automatically with vision and sound. The same happened with my printer and other peripherals. Yes, an excellent web cam.

5.0 out of 5 stars LifeCam to QuickCam - very impressed with Vista! 13 Mar 2008
Having Windows Vista, I was worried about which webcam to purhcase, after reading lots of compatibility issues with the operating system with many other webcams, even my old Microsoft camera struggled to work with Vista!?

I have to say that I am glad I bought this one and it was huge relief to see "Works with Vista" logo on the small, cute box, that by the way is really tiny and looks recycleable material. Well done Logitech!

I use Windows Live Messenger, and it works perfectly with the Logitech, software install took under 10 minutes, and the software even advises you on where to place your speakers and microphone for optimal performance, excellent!

The webcam is so small, yet it hangs beautifully on top of a laptop screen, one of the main reasons I purchased the Logitech, as well as their reputation.

The picture quality is superb, really sharp crystal clear images, and the focus can be adjusted with the ring around the lens.

The User Guide says that you should install the software before plugging it in, and with Windows Vista, it prompts you to install software when it is first inserted, I just left this alone and let the Logitech installer do its thing.

Great price and functionallity, from a great make! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Logitech Quickcam Messenger 13 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase
Really happy with this product. The quality is good and it's a perfect starter-webcam. Volume is low even with the in-built microphone but the images are good and not too 'grainy'

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Vista compatible 23 July 2008
Verified Purchase
Sadly, whatever this product might claim, and whatever other reviewers might say about it, it is NOT compatible with Windows Vista. The first thing the installation disc does is display a message to this effect. If, like me, you plough on with the installation regardless, you may reach the point where you are told the installation has been successful - but not successful enough to operate the camera!
I'm sure this is a good product on other operating systems (XP for example), but if you have Vista (which has a lot to answer for in its general uncooperativeness with other software) it just won't work.
