Strengths: Great video, pic quality. Easy Setup. Simple to operate.

Weaknesses: Facial Tracking Feature not as useful as expected.

Summary: This is my first webcam but the quality of this webcam is great in terms of Video and Picture! All the features (other the facial tracking) are very handy. Software controls are simple and easy to use. Setup is just as easy. Just pop in the CD and install the software and then plug in the USB cable to the PC and then you are done. The only weakness to me is the facial tracking feature which is not as good as it sounds... However, you can always turn it off. I love this little webcam! Greatly recommended!

Strengths: Very clear picture. Variety of adjustments can be made including brightness, gamma, saturation, type of light. "Face tracking" enables camera to move with you as you shift positions. Easy to use.

Weaknesses: So far I haven't found any.

Summary: I purchased this camera to talk to my boyfriend out of the country and so far so good. The picture is suprisingly clear and the colors correct. He can clearly see well past me and into the hallway behind me with great detail. The camera is really easy to use. The "face tracking" is nice because it maintains focus and distance on you if you shift around at your desk. The built-in mic works exceptionally well. I've played around with the recording functions as well and it does really nice quality video clips that you can send to others. I've tried the lower-end Logitech cameras and didn't like the quality as well as a Veo camera that I returned that was REALLY bad. Definitely recommend this one.

Strengths: Clear picture;Pretty appearence;Strong ability to adjust according to the environment.

Weaknesses: After I use for 7 days, its USB interface doesn't worked!!!! I don't who are responsible for this

Summary: (Edited October 05th by goododd) It's my first Logitech Webcam. I used to use cheaper webcam worth around $15. But I am very excited by the excellent video and picture quality of this webcam, though it's price is higher. My friends just say my pic is clearer than theirs. Don't hesitate, get one and you can let your friends see you clearly.

Strengths: Good image, good resolution, quality microphone, nice features, easy to install. Excelent price/quality ratio.

Weaknesses: Coudn't find any.

Summary: This camera works great. The quality of the image is very good. It has a good frame rate for a web cam. Works well in most lighting conditions. The face tracking system is a nice added bonus, although it doesn't always work perfectly.

The built-in microphone works quite well even if the camera is 2-3 feet away.

Installation is very easy. So far I have installed it under Windows 98 and XP and works great under both.

Excellent quality for the price.

Strengths: small

Weaknesses: limited unit control

Summary: The biggest problem to date is there is a lack of light in the room to produce a bright image. We will add a lamp, fine tune the controls & see what happens. The video is still a little jumpy & not synchronized with the audio. This could be due to the pc speed.

Strengths: Great Video for chat.

Weaknesses: Have a problem with audio and video at same time, still need to config some more. Requires a lot of room lighting.

Summary: Although this is a New CAM and I haven't had time to configure it to proper settings it's still a great Web Cam. It is really small and cool looking, auto everything. I use to use my mini camcorder were I had to turn on and adjust everything. This is one great little web cam just set it up once properly an your done for next time. Would recommend this anytime, great price and better with rebates.

Strengths: Superior picture quality and the built in mic is very good. Stylish design and very easy to use.

Weaknesses: Bad software support - had to use the web updates and still had problems. No clip for putting on monitor.

Summary: The picture and sound quality of the product was great, I noticed it as well as the people I connect to. The face tracking isn't as great as I thought it would be and it would have been nice to get a clip with it (I hear the newer models do). The software to support the camera is not very good, I still have issues using some of the programs. Overall it is a really good camera for the money and is easy to use outside of the programs that come with Logitech.

Strengths: Good picture quality, digital zoom is cool, software is superior to previous versions.

Weaknesses: No mechanical pan/tilt, face tracking is not flawless, tends to "bounce" in and out.

Summary: Overall this camera is great, it is the same camera as the pro it just doesn't come with the editing software that no one needs anyway. Price and quality make this the best buy on webcams, unless you have unlimited funds and get a camera with mechanical pan/tilt/zoom/focus which in the end...WHY?

Strengths: Excellent microphone. Good video quality in bright light. Generally easy to use.

Weaknesses: Blury if person moves. Poor resolution in dim light. Face Tacking doesn't seem to work well.

Summary: I am generally very pleased with the video using the Quick Cam Zoom. It was an excellent value for the price. I basically use it for IM. I did go out and purchase a florescent light for above my computer so I could have the better quality picture. You will lose resolution in dimer light. Also if you move the video will be choppy and there is nothing that will improve that until the technology gets better. The face tracking doesn't seem to work. I do use the zoom effect.

Strengths: Good picture quality, nice looks, built in microphone, good price only ($34).

Weaknesses: I have not experienced any weaknesses so far.

Summary: This is my first webcam. The installation was very easy, and the quality impressed me. The face tracker is funny to have but not necessary. With the bulit in microphone it makes this camera perfect for MSN chat.

Strengths: Cute web cam, easy to install. Lots of options in the software.

Weaknesses: Picture isn't as clear as I expected.

Summary: This webcam comes with the ability to take snapshots and short movies but the clarity of the picture isn't very good. It does, however, serve its purpose as a webcam to be used while chatting.

Strengths: Cheap, Good picture quality with MSN messenger, Integrated well with MSN messenger.

Weaknesses: The software needs some improvement. Windows Me hung during the installation. For Windows 2000, after connected the Camera to USB port, there were multiply pop up windows and is very confused

Summary: If you can handle the software installation, it is worth to try. Once it is setup, it works great with MSN Messenger. The face tracking is not perfect, sometime overacted, but it is very interesting to show your peer with this feature.

Strengths: Reasonable price, easy to install and use

Weaknesses: The picture is not as clear as I expected.

Summary: The picture quality is obviously not as good as the Logitech Pro 4000, and when the subject moves, you can easily feel the auto-focusing, but with this low price this camera is worthwhile.

Strengths: Good video and audio.

Weaknesses: Difficult focus ring, flimsy privacy shade.

Summary: The quality of the video is very good if the lighting in the room is very good, and the mircrophone is very sensitive. I gave this camera only four stars because the focus ring is difficult to adjust and because the privacy shade falls off easily.

Strengths: The rotation on the neck makes it easy to adjust angle and direction. Very easy to set up.

Weaknesses: Video not as clear as I thought it was going to be.

Summary: I use it for MSN video sharing when I talk to my friends who I haven't seen for a long time. It works pretty well, there are some lags... But I think it's from the internet connection. Generally, I think it's an okay product for its price. The main thing that I was disappointed about was that the video quality was a little fuzzy. Somehow it doesn't seem like it's focused.
