The setup rebooted my PC once and was very stait forward. The picture quality seems great, much better than my old webcam. The auto adjust for brightness is a bonus especialy when looking outside where the sun comes out and goes in. The other bonus is the built in microphone that I am told is very good quailty by other users of MSN Messenger. I am glad I purchased this.

Strange this alien looking webcam - hidden with all sorts of tricks and suprises! The installation was easy for me, quick, simple and no problems on Win XP. You have to follow instructions otherwise you might have some trouble! The whole point of this new gadget was to be able to have face tracking when moving (that was the main reason why i brought this item). Disappointly it fails that, unless of course you move like a slow-motion movie and take about 5 seconds for every joint movement.. it often mistakes your leg or your chest as your FACE which is A GREAT BONUS :S! However my hands clap for the high quality pixels and colour.. the resolution is amazing and it looks cool on your desk! It has it's own stand so you dont have to balance it on your monitor or on something higher. It's also quite useful because you can manually control it and make it turn and zoom! It's v. good for the price on amazon! £60 well worth spending on!

Installation was extremely easy, within 10 minutes I was able to use the webcam. The picture quality is excellent. The normal room lighting in the evening seems to be sufficient to produce a good quality picture. I tried the still picture, it was reasonable quality, but then again, I was comparing it with my digital camera (4 Megpixel) output. The built in microphone is not that great, I have a very cheap mic that is connected through my sound card, and that produces a much better quality sound. I also tried the face tracking feature, and I switched it off within a couple of minutes. Two reasons for that, 1) I found it disctracting with the software continuously trying to keep the face in the centre, 2) The software doesn't always work.
I have used the pole extension to place the webcam at face level. Although this is very secure, the picture is at 3/4(side) angle. Obviously you can't put the webcam right in front of you, it would block the monitor. I have a flat screen, putting the webcam on top of the screen is not an option, but I don't think it would be secure enough on top of a normal display.
Would I recommend this to others? Having seen the picture quality of some of the other webcams, the answer is yes. I think the price is quite resonable at £70.

Having taken delivery at 12noon, the camera was up and running by 12.15 and causing great laughs in the office. Face tracking is fun, but not so if your office is full of Mingers. The camera resolution is excellent and the software offers many very good features. For me this is an upgrade from the quickcam messenger and Logitech have once again hit the spot with this great webcam. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good quality webcam.

After buying a Trust 380 spacecam from PC World and being severely disappointed due it having incompatibility problems with Windows XP (well documented in forums - avoid at all costs!), I decided to splash out on this.
This camera is worth every penny. Stills are superb quality, as is video recording, with smooth fluidity when using Yahoo or MSN messenger. The picture quality is simply stunning. Similarly, the camera has a "facetracking" feature so that it moves to follow your face as you move. This works well. A stand is also included that fits between the base and camera so that all possible camera angles can be catered for, whatever your circumstances. Also included is excellent picture and video software that is very easy to use. This camera is simply "the bees' knees" - I wouldn't even waste my time looking at any others.

Well, the headline says it all. I ordered one of these a few months ago and found to my dismay that there was no proper hardware or software support to get this working with my relatively new Mac Mini. Logitech has no Mac support to speak of and any claims of Mac compatibility, in my experience with them, has been greatly exaggerated.

Very nice web cam, easy set-up and good picture quality even in low light with it's auto adjusting iris.

The problems start when you try to use it with FTP web cam software. It runs for a day, an hour, or a couple of minutes then the computer hangs. I have persisted and tried using it on 2 different laptops and a desktop, using two different FTP programs and the problem is the same.

It is also mentioned on their own support page, which I should have read before buying it, that it is a known fault with it.

I have now bought a Panasonic IP camera to replace it and only use the Logitech sphere for Skype. Even this is not perfect because the follow-me needs to be turned off as the motor makes a noise when it moves which the other party can hear.

This webcam is easy to set up and use. I found it to be great value for money. It's like having a little robot friend with you when you are on-line using skyp and he follows your movements around! Well worth it!

For those of you that are looking to do something radical like use this camera to stream video to the internet and give people TPZ controls - forget it. There is no API, there is not even any control software and Logitech continue to assert that everything is proprietry to explain their unwillingness or inability to provide the software. It only really works with IM packages, which it does admirably. I simply don't get it - an excellent TPZ feature that only works using IM. What??? I don't know about the rest of you but I tend to sit reasonably still when I use IM and the 180 degree pan and 60 degree tilt capability of the camera is totally wasted unless you have the urge to throw yourself across the room suddenly.
So, if you're like me and you're looking for a TPZ camera to do something other than IM don't buy this as it will not do what you want. If you're simply after a camera to interact with IM, save your money, buy something cheaper and don't jump around the room whilst typing! Hopefully Logitech are looking at this sort of review and are reconsidering their frankly perplexing refusal to give their customers more than the ability to use TPZ with IM.

This was a gift. The CD Rom had outdated drivers but it was easy enough to download the latest software. My PC is running Win2000 Pro with all the latest updates. Despite numerous attempts to install the web cam, it only worked once and then for a short time. The s/w consistently suggested the camera wasn't connected. My registry was corrupted and the support from Logitech was pretty poor. Essentially they kept sending me copies of the support material from their web site. When I started to be more assertive about needing help, they advised me that I had a faulty camera. It was returned to Amazon.
It's put me off Logitech completely. Great shame as the spec was super. Glad to see others have had much better experiences.
