Customer Reviews:

  • Terrific for Mac Pro and Mini users, too
    I use this with iChat, which means of course I can't review the included software (at least until I try it on Windows). But it works extremely well with iChat, dealing with the backlighting in my office and providing superior resolution to most built-in webcams.

    Audio quality is also fine, and I find the included stand preferable to the clip, since I can actually position the camera alongside the window of the other party, giving natural eye contact....more info
  • Excellent quality camera
    This is the first webcam I own, and I'm very impressed with it. The quality of the image, both video and photo, is really good. I like the fact it has a photo feature too. It tilts up and down but I wish it could turn right and left a little easier....more info
  • Best laptop webcam on the market today
    A wide field of view and good light sensitivity make Logitech's QuickCam Pro a great camera. Although designed for web conferencing, we've been using this camera for facial recognition of computer users. We've assessed a wide number of web-cams available on the market today and have standardized on the QuickCam for its quality and value. You can't go wrong with this camera!...more info
  • great camera for any laptop that doesn't have one built in.
    I brought this for a new laptop that I used while working in Africa. It set up easily and worked perfectly with skype and yahoo/google messenger. I was able to communicate with my wife and children from Africa with ease. I have also used it on an old laptop that my mother-in-law has so she can skype with her grandkids 3 states away. It works great and is well worth the money....more info
  • Never regret
    At the beginning, I personnaly thought it's a bit expensive. Around $70 for a webcam? It sounds too much, doesn't it. However, my friend who specilised in the PC hardware strongly suggested it to me and therefore I decided it to give it a try.
    The product is awesome! All the friends who saw me in the new cam gave it excellent compliments.
    Pro:
    easy to carry and clip on the monitor or be placed on the stand;
    perfect quality;
    the software is very easy and convenient to use and entertaining;
    Free carry-case to protect the cam
    It seamlessly works with Skype and supports the HD quality video communications.

    Cons:
    can't even think of one for now. ...more info
  • Nice cam, simple interface
    I bought a web cam several years ago, difficult to use, poor quality, never really used it.
    This web cam is easy to use, lots of cool features, I LOVE IT....more info
  • Great Camera! Easy to use and great quality picture
    I bought this camera to use with Skype and replaced a Microsoft LifeCam which didn't work well with Skype. This camera is very easy to install and use and provides awesome quality in even low light. I use it to show my parents their grandkids and they love it!...more info
  • Works out of the box in Linux!
    I prayed and prayed after I ordered this. I had previously checked out the linux uvc webcam [...]which might work, and this seemed like the 2007 model that is mentioned in the list.

    After I got it, I ran to the laptop, heart pounding as I plugged it in. /var/log/messages confirmed that the USB identifier was just the one which was supported - 046d:0991. I started up ekiga and it straightaway showed my video. I fired up Skype, and it showed up as well. Even the microphone works! Just freaking awesome!

    Those in the market for linux compatible webcams, be aware that most logitech webcams are marked in the linux uvc page as potentially having problems (including the famed pro 9000 model). Be careful and do your research before buying webcams. This one works! Picture quality is ok. I am not sure whether the video qualifies as HD as somebody has tagged this product with.

    OS used: Ubuntu Linux 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex), but should work in all modern linux distros with uvc support.

    Lite and portable. Great picture quality.
    Right-light system works better than expected.
    Overall outstanding....more info
  • Logitech Quickcam Pro for Notebooks
    I am very pleased with the function of this device. I wish my friends had one that had a picture this clear. ...more info
  • Excellent!
    This is a great web cam. It has a high quality lens and does a great job with video tutorials. It also has some really cool special effect functions. This camera can lag a little on video if you don't have an updated computer with the recommended specs and lots of RAM. Overall, I would highly recommend it....more info
  • Best cam I've had so far
    Sharp crisp pictures and movies. Flawless HD Skyping is possible. Sound is very good too no echos etc. ...more info
  • all seeing
    So far, so good, gift for my step-father to talk to his wife in Atlanta while he is in Cape Cod taking care of his mother. ...more info
  • Best desktop/laptop webcam I have used
    Hands down the best desktop/laptop webcam I have used. Video and audio quality are fantastic at default levels. I also appreciate the travel case and stand (when using it as a desktop WC). Clip works great on my Thinkpad. The drivers did not automatically install via the CD process; however, I was able to do it manually with zero issues. HIGHLY recommend this webcam ... nice job Logitech and nice job Amazon for the price and free shipping....more info
  • Logitech QuickCam Pro
    So far the camera holds true to what has been said about it. The picture is clear and very nice. We are using it to communicate while away on business. Well worth the investment....more info
  • Logitech
    Now. this works.. so far, with my fingers twisted.. I like it so far, but it is hard or impossible to adjust the mic with a laptop speaker system, you have to use the headset.. otherwise there is so much feedback you cannot use the mic.. that said, its a good unit, great picture quality,... now to find something to replace those worthless lifecam 3000 units from microsoft.. ...more info
  • Very Good WebCam
    Installation of the software and (3) drivers seemed relatively quick. Image testing is very succinct although the microphone test is also strictly visual. I installed Skype afterwards and the two products interact quite well. Skype permits an audio feedback test of the microphone which showed it appears to work quite well and the sound is very clear and distinct even speaking from a distance.

    The software includes sophisticated video and audio auto correction capabilities which can be optionally disabled or manually adjusted. There is an undocumented button on the web cam itself (as in the software) which allows you to take "snapshots" automatically creating a jpg image.

    Both a colleague of mine as well as myself experienced a situation where the software for this product suddenly caused the PC (XP Pro) to reboot without a warning or blue screen. This may have been an interaction with Skype but it was a rare occurrence. Somewhere in the driver is a stop code which shouldn't be there.

    While stressing the product's software based zoom feature at full zoom and maximum resolution, the image becomes quite poor. Still, under normal use, the image is quite good.

    Although the product name implies it is for notebook computers, it works well on any type of PC. What probably constrains it to notebooks is the short 3 ft USB cable and a holding stand that comes with the product which is just tall enough (11 1/2" lens height) to clear the open cover when placed directly behind it. Ideally, the clip on the web cam would attach to the cover itself so you do not have to take the stand with you when traveling. Fortunately it attached OK to my notebook but it doesn't appear to be a universal design. There is only a vertical swivel to adjust for the open cover angle.

    The installation CD contains, in pdf format, the manuals of all the Logitech web cam products. You can browse through them to determine if you bought the right one! The manuals themselves do not contain much useful information....more info
  • Notebook WebCam
    I bought this to use while I was in Iraq with my laptop. It has worked so well. Very portable and easy to use. I recommend this to anyone with a laptop that does a lot of travelling. ...more info
  • Love it!
    I purchased this webcam because it is one of the only notebook webcams with a 2 megapixel camera that I could find and because of the great price and good reviews. I am very pleased with my purchase. It was incredibly easy to setup. I like that it comes with the stand too. The picture is great. I use the camera to communicate with my brother-in-law who is currently stationed in Afghanistan and have not experienced any problems with image quality....more info
  • Excellent with one exception...
    This camera is excellent. Way smaller that what I expected. Incredible image. And I was really picky about image quality. It's perfect. The only flaw is that it doesn't stay on my laptop correctly, so I have to use the stand it came with (thank god)

    But overall, it's an awesome webcam. Extremely clear! Takes really nice pictures, videos, and cool accessory options!...more info
  • Logitech QuickCam for notebooks
    Outstanding optics and even more impressive software. One complaint. I don't like the design of the clip that clamps onto the lid. The only sure way to attach it is over one of the lugs at the top that engages the base when the laptop is closed. Otherwise, the grip is not as secure as I would like it to be....more info
  • Nice Camera, But
    Like the camera, which also has a built-in mic. Comes with a nice soft sided carrying pouch. Takes good pictures. On the down side I have 2 laptops and one of them has the Windows 2000 operating system, which it's not compatible with. Really wish it did....more info
  • Nice with flaws
    The clip used to secure the cam to your notebook seems poorly designed. It bearly opens wide enough then puts the cam at a odd angle. It fits well on the included stand only it's somewhat flimsy. Otherwise it's a very nice cam. Excellent picture quality coming from a small sleek frame. It blows away the Creative Live! Notebook Ultra that it replaced....more info
  • great camera
    i got this camera and its great,very ez to set up and use.the only thing is dont pay this price 4 it,i got it at wal mart for $30,i dont see why the charge $75 here.so go to wal mart...more info
  • Logitech Quick Cam Pro
    This is the fifth one we have purchased and obviously we are happy with the product....more info
  • Works with Skype 4.0.xxx
    I bought it and had the same problem with Skype (as reported). I was close to send it back...
    But than I downloaded the last version of Skype (4.0.xxx) and now it works very fine.
    The cam has a very good quality, is small (easy to take with and good covered with the bag) and the software is easy to use (and has a lot of good functions).

    So after a "rough" start I'm really happy with the cam.

  • Logitech QuickCam Pro
    Best available at great price. Lesser model was only a consuideration because it was cheaper....more info
  • Mediocre, Overpriced.
    The clip that holds it to the monitor broke with less than one year's use.

    The video quality is no better than the microscopic camera built into most new laptops.

    The Carl Zeiss lens is completely useless in this camera, it's just a name to sell a product at a higher price in this case.

    I'd recommend getting a similar, cheaper camera with a plastic lens....more info
  • ****AT LEAST FOUR STARS****
    Worth the money...Definitely an improvement over the one I bought(also Logitech)at Kmart. Autofocus AND noticibly sharper focus. Exactly the same set-up but without the need to focus....more info
  • Great Pictures!
    Hooked up my new Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks (Laptop), and what a great job this little baby does. Very clear and sharp pictures! Just spend a few pennies more and get the best! Get out there with Skype...SKP ...more info
  • Wonderful / wire could be twice the length to make it / Exceptional.
    I love this webcam. Clear image, takes great pictures and videos. Great value for the inexpensive price. I only wish the wire was a little longer, like twice the length. This length would help when trying to capture something just out of range without bringing your laptop with you. The stand is ok, can topple easily; considering again the length of the wire.
    I'm happy to own it. I will try and find an extension cable.

  • Great Product!
    I use this webcam to communicate w/ families in other states. Excellent picture quality, great to capture pictures and videos. Excellent Product! ...more info

  • Great Notebook QuickCam
    This newer notebook quickcam has features not found in the older cams.
    I like the automatic light sensing adjustment, and easy focus.
    If desired, the contrast and other light features can be adjusted manually. This is a great item for the price....more info
  • Great Product
    This is a great webcam. The software is easy to install and the product easy to use. The product works well with Skype and the image quality is good....more info
  • Great Webcam
    I bought the Quickcam Pro for Notebooks because I have an increasingly growing number of people I want to talk to that aren't anywhere close to me. This model caught my eye because it works for notebooks, but has an awesome stand for desktops. Not to mention it is super sleek and small.

    Aesthetics are always important, but the quality is where the substance is and this camera has amazing quality. Skype HQ video is really awesome and I use it all the time.

    Most importantly, the installation is super easy and lightweight. Pop in the CD, install, and it works. No problems, at least for me....more info
  • Open box
    I would not recommend ordering this from Amazon as the box the product was in (not the bigger, amazon box) was opened and was not in good shape at all....more info
  • Wonderful
    I love this product and bought one for my mother as well after seeing how easy it was to install and how clear the picture/video was. Very easy to install no issues. Two other members of our family bought a different product and both had problems with the install and getting the webcam to work correctly. I highly recommend Logitech and this model....more info
  • IT'S A PROFESSIONAL WEBCAM!!!

    I'm on the receiving side of the videocam, and I think that it works well. ...more info
