- 4.25 stars... Good for the task, EXCELLENT for the money!
This is a VERY GOOD camera. I purchased the Quickcam Pro 9000 along with this, and would describe the latter as EXCELLENT (albeit, it costs nearly twice given the current incentives and rebates on the Fusion). I tested the Fusion on a slower system (AMD 64 3400+, 1GB RAM, XP Home), and worked without a hitch.
(1) Very good picture quality
(2) Very good automatic settings (lighting, etc.)
(3) Great design (sharp looks, camera eye cover for privacy, well-balanced weight and stand)
(1) Poor microphone quality (faint/choppy/digitized transmission from 2-3 ft away; part of the problem may also have been due to the slower DSL service)
(2) Fixed focus
(3) No lens protection from dust, etc. (How difficult is it to make an automatic lens cover for these things? The more expensive Pro 9000 doesn't even have the privacy patch!)
In sum, if you're using your webcam for close-range video and already have a good quality mic, purchasing this one at ~$[...] after all the rebates is a no-brainer....more info
- Good pictures, difficult for notebooks
The quality of the product is good: easy to install, easy to handle, good quality of the picture. However, using a notebook it is not very pracitcal as it does not attach to it properly. You have to set it on a desk in front of you. For that reason I will buy something else. For a regular monitor this product is great!...more info
- I'm No Techie
This is the first web cam I ever purchased, and I'm not a techie. I have read some negative reviews arount the net on this product, but as far as I'm concerned, this cam delivers on what it's suppose to give up. I consider it to be a great bang for my buck. I'm sure you could do better, but for this meat and potatoes guy, I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I've been up and running about a month now. ...more info
- Nice cam for the most part
This cam isnt bad ... gets grainy in bigger formats. I wish I would have spent a little more for the 9000 model that has autofocus really. This cam isnt bad and is a big improvement from what I did have anyway....more info
- Works great, clear image
had no problems getting this to work, images are clear and we are able to visit with friend overseas with Skype and this webcam. definitley would recommend to anyone...more info
- As promised, easy install and decent image quality.
For somebody new to the video chat world, this is a good and affordable product. Easy tto switch between PCs, although it needs more set-back distance than is typical for laptop users. No complaints....more info
- Works great!
My husband and I got this this so that our parents could see their grandson, as they live out of town. The webcam works really well, and is easy to set up. Some feedback issues when the camera is next to the speakers, but other than that works great.
- Excellent Product!
I've had one of these webcams for about a year. I purchased it so that I could have video chats with my dad who has the same camera. My mom just bought a new computer, so I didn't hesitate to purchase this same camera for her. She is mostly a computer novice, but had no problem setting it up within MS Vista. She is trilled to be able to see her grandkids in real-time during our weekend conferences. The video quality is excellent in large mode but a little blurry in full-screen mode. We use it in Windows Live Messenger and rarely have a glitch. Occasionally we have to restart Messenger and start the video call over, but that's only happened a couple of times in the year that I've been using it.
Don't expect High Definition quality. It's not that flawless, but for the price, the quality and simplicity are well worth the opportunity to visit distant friends and family in real-time.
- really good, but not great webcam
I use this with Microsoft Windows Messenger (the most reliable service I've found). The quality of the images are good, and the built in microphone works well. The only thing I'm not too impressed with is the ability to adjust to the lighting situations (I use it facing away from a big sliding glass door I have to my balcony). Overall, though, I'm a Logitech product fan, and this is a very solid web cam [...]...more info
- Light, mobile, great product!
This is a very nice webcam. I've only had a couple in the recent years, and none of them have had this level of quality. For the price, you're getting an exceptional product that truly does perform. As a lifecaster, I need something portable and light. This attaches right on top of the notebook with ease and has a rubber gripping back clip to prevent the scratching of your LCD panel or notebook. Wonderful!...more info
- Great little webcam
Logitech Quickcam Fusion (961403-0403)
This is my first webcam, and I was a little apprehensive about being able to get this set up. No problems, though, as the directions were easy to follow.
The picture and audio are excellent, and I look forward to using this webcam often. The settings toolbar gives you instant access to any of the features that you need.
This was a great purchase!...more info

Great webcam! Used it so my children could see their father while he was serving overseas. It helped to brighten their spirits and the picture was a very good quality....more info
- Even the non-IT person can use this product
As IT Manager for a mid-size law firm, I've purchased three of these cameras for attorneys to use during video conferencing. The set up is easy and the camera itself is very easy to use--even for a non-IT lawyer....more info
- 100 stars for this crystal clear and fast cam
this cam was the best thing i got from amazon...
it works perfect and is very clear n even has a mic in the phone with some other good things included!!
if u need a cam with all the perfect things in it and are on a budget this is the cam your looking for !!...more info
The product itself looks real nice, unobtrusive. The video is excellent, the software provides very conveniant (as well as very specific) easy adjustments including the options of disabling the camera and microphone. Also sits very easily on CRT monitors. Very easy to set up! A tell-tell indicator lamp to the right of the microphone lets you know when the unit is active. Very strongly recommended....more info
- Good Quickcam
A very nice product. Very compact and easy to use. Easy installation for the software. Neat design, too. Not so expensive, either. ...more info
- Logitech Quickcam Fusion
This is the second Logitech Quickcam that I have bought over the last 3 months. What I love about the Logitech Quickcam is the ease of installation (load a disc and plug in usb cable); plus the many features of the cam. I have recommended this cam to several of my friends and family. The price is right and the product is exceptional....more info
- Works fine with my MacBook + OSX 10.5.7
I bought this webcam a couple of years ago to use with a Windows PC. Then I switched to Mac and have used the MacBook's built-in camera - but, while the quality of the Mac's built-in camera's video is good, you can't change the camera position - and I'd like to be able to include video of the rest of my office without having to physically move my laptop around. I assumed that the Logitech Quickcam wouldn't work after reading user comments on Amazon and around the web - but, for the heck of it, I plugged it in. It worked immediately with Skype - didn't need any new drivers or anything. It just worked. The only thing not good about it is that, since there isn't any Mac software for it, you can't fine-tune the image - no zooming or cropping, etc....more info
- AS PRESENTED
This web cam performs as it should. It is well priced, and loaded and ran without a hitch....more info
- Great choice for a first webcam
This is the first webcam I've owned and I've used it almost every day for the last month or so. When I bought mine, I also bought one for my boyfriend, and it has made the distance between us seem not so far. The only problems we have had with the webcams have been due to slow internet that causes the chat window to freeze. We have found the webcams themselves easy to use (just plug it in and start the chat), and small enough to carry around in a backpack or carrying case with a laptop. The microphone is sensitive enough that I can walk around my kitchen or house and get other things done in the same room while still talking to my boyfriend online, but it still cancels out the background noise fairly well. The picture is very clear, though using the head tracking on the camera can be a bit dizzying and I wouldn't recommend it. Overall, a great buy and we love the webcams!...more info
- Logitech Quickcam Review
I purchased this camera for my daughter. I have had one for a while and used it to speak to her. The only problem is the one she was using was terrible! So, I ordered her one just like mine so our visiting would be GREAT! Now I can talk to her and my grandkids and see them and hear them too!! I love this camera and would suggest it most highly!!Logitech Quickcam Fusion (961403-0403)...more info
- Logitech drops TWAIN and WIA support
I bought this camera a little while ago. It works great as a webcam and the mic picks up sound very nicely.
Unfortunately, Logitech has decided to drop TWAIN and WIA support in their drivers in their latest QuickCam 11.x software. If you need this type of support, take a look at Creative Labs. I recently had a need for this feature for integrating image capture with other software. I can't do it with this webcam....more info
- great product
very good webcam...i don't know why lots of people complain about the software and it not working....i put in the disc and then hooked it up....it works great with msn and yahoo...no complaints here...more info
We purchased this quick cam to use to communicate with our daughter in Turkey via Skype. Overall the image quality and instalation have been excellant. Our only caution is that the "follow" feature seems to degrade the image and we have elected to not use it....more info
- unable to get to work with my PC
the quality of this webcam was excellent. However, I couldn't get it to work with Yahoo or Google. ...more info
