i have a lot of time for logitech as a company. i had a mouse fail under warranty before. and they just asked for a picture and sent me a new one, couriered the next day.

i've had corsair stuff fail and had to send it recorded delivery to holland. takes about a month to turn around and costs a fortune.

I've never needed to contact their customer services but I've never had a bad product from Logitech and I have had various keyboards, mice, speakers and docks from them. They seem to consistently make quality products - certainly a fave of mine.

Me too, even the cheaper ones are pretty good. the problem I do find with every single webcam I have owned is they are naff in dull light. i find i have to put a small lamp behind the camera to get a decent image.

Microsoft Lifecam, not expensive but really good quality.

Yeah, they are not bad to be honest, I know someone who got one and the quality seems good, the only problem is it keeps falling on the floor as it is so light. I am talking to them and then all of a sudden I see the floor or a video of their legs.

I think they use tape to stick it down.

+1 for Logitech. This is a steal for the money, the clarity on the mic is very good, even at low levels.

Having said that, I have a lot of MS hardware and it's generally pretty solid. This was less than I expected

Takes a while for MS to update the drivers. windows 7 32 bit drivers was available, but they could not find 64 bit and the vista drivers was also only 32 bit. they did eventually got 64 bit version, but it took a couple of months.

Excellent image and sound quality for the money. If you need the camera to rotate, I can also recommend the slightly higher spec C525.
