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!
