    Great for videoconferencing

    Another great product from Logitech! Videoconferencing has never been a good substitute for face-to-face meetings, despite what the bean-counters and managers think. Now that our highly esteemed elected representatives have forced dramatic reductions in travel, we're looking for a way to slow the erosion of our complex inter-agency collaborations. I bought two of these for my division and they are shared among 10 people on Windoze and Macs; they are easy to hook up and to disconnect and re-install. In the past, the jerky video and the inability to carry on multi-party discussions would be a poor substitute for a site visit, but the Logitech cameras are better than our past experience and certainly beat no discussion at all. Thanks to Best Buy and logitech, we have restored some of our collaborations to a tolerable level. Gotta save those tax dollars to get more work done.

    Great Camera, Great Value

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I grabbed this off the shelf as I needed something cheap to use with Adobe Character Animator CC. It was the least expensive camera there and quickly glancing at the specs it looked like it would work fine on a Mac Pro. Got home, plugged it into the USB port and worked great right out of the box without the need to install additional drivers or software. The frame rate and the quality was perfect for what I was using it for. The built in microphone also works well and is convenient if you don't already have a mic. Don't let the low price lead to you think this is a piece of junk... it's well built and sits nicely atop my ASUS 28" 4K display. This is straightforward product with no fancy gimmicks. It works with Photobooth & FaceTime. Most importantly it worked great with Adobe Character Animator CC so no complaints here!

    Great webcam for beginners

    I say for beginners only because that is what I am. Web cam is something new to me, I lost track of things in technology, started with C64 when I did all my own programming and still have Windows 1. Cam directions are not the best, took me a little searching to get things working. I did some research on Logitech and did download another program to be able to get a real feel for it. Quality of picture to me looks great, recording for Facebook, twitter etc. Have used it to talk with grandson on his phone using Hangouts on Chrome, worked great. When I went to Best Buy for this the clerk tells me it is the basic cam, that is great, I am not looking to do a lot of videos and the price was decent. More in the brick store than online but I got it when I wanted it. Only real problem is way I could get mounted to monitor, that could be improved.

    Works well, wider angle adjustment would be better

    Works well for a video chat with the camera looking only at one person. We needed the camera to view more than one person, for viewing straight on three people, but the option of putting more distance between the camera and the people, was not practical, since even with a USB extension cable, because the room was too small to get the camera far enough back. So the camera had to be set up to view the group at an angle. Granted the camera was only meant to view one person. Maybe in the future there will be a webcam that can be adjusted for a wider viewing angle. On the plus side, the video camera had good video quality, and the microphone picked up audio well. The videocam was reasonably priced.

    Overall, I rate this five stars, it was extremely easy to install and I was able to use it within minutes of receiving it. I have Skyped before and the quality was not so great. With this camera, my resolution is in HD, the camera can be set up to follow your head movements while on Skype. It can be set up as a spy-cam when you're not at home and will automatically record any movements to a file that you can view when you return. I just love it and would recommend it to friends, family or anyone who asks. You can't do better for the price. The only downside, that I could find is that the way it clips onto the monitor doesn't seem to be very secure, but I recently moved my computer and forgot to remove the camera, but it remained attached with no problems.

    In my profession, it's occasionally necessary to teleconference with branches outside my companies location, even overseas. As "luck" would have it, our webcam malfunctioned within a couple of days before one such conference, and I needed a quick save. I took a quick run over to BEST BUY, to search for a suitable replacement, and was pleased to find the same dependable webcam, or latest model of, the one I've used, for my home computer, to communicate with family, both domestically and overseas, for several years. It was the most affordable, installed easily, and the conference proceeded smoothly, with both the audio and video performing like a champ.

    Speaker feedback is horrible

    While the quality of the visible video is excellent, the audio quality makes chatting with my daughter miserable. I've Googled the problem repeatedly, tried changing settings in the video chat medium we use, in the control panel, and in the sound mixer on the volume control. Sometimes I can get the high pitched squeal to go away for several minutes at a time, but mostly the time can be measured in seconds. I've moved my phone and my Kindle far away from it in case those were an issue - they were not. The only thing I haven't tried is moving the webcam far away, but given the length of the cord - and the fact that I'd actually like to hear AND see my daughter during chats, that would be kind of hard. So if you know sign language, this would be a great item for you. If you don't, the sound quality sucks.

    Doesn't work

    Logitech webcams are among the most popular and highest rated out there but, what they don't tell you, what you only discover when you start reading all the customer coimments on the posts, is that there is a widespread problem with them not working on new computers. This is my second attempt and it fared no better than the first. It worked fine on my 7 year old laptop, but not at all on my brand new desktop, a new computer that has given me no problems with any other application or device. There were dozens of solutions offered both on YouTube and on the message boards, I tried them all, none worked. So don't buy Logitech for new computers. I have wasted way too many hours on this so-called "plug and play" device and to no avail.

    Those of us in our thirties, and older, will remember how much it used to cost to buy something that could make video. And of course, those same people remember how hard it was to handle, edit and share that video. Now, for less than £20 you canFull Review
