Good basic webcam

 

Works pretty good for basic web cam.

Low resolution not an HD camera.

A poor-quality, budget-priced webcam with poor software

 

It may only be $20, but don't let the low price fool you. This is a poor webcam that will ruin all of your precious photos and videos. You can never take the same photo or video twice, so it's important that you buy the best webcam you can so all your...

+ It's affordable, easy to install, and tilts up and down.

- The image sensor is low quality: every photo it takes is grainy, many pixels are the wrong color, and photos are missing detail and look damaged. (I have to work my Photoshop magic to correct all the issues, but it takes many hours per photo, and...

Good hardware, bad software

 

It's embarrassing to say #1 selling webcams in the world on the retail box when Logitech has had a fatal error in their LWS software since 2010! that prevents most of their users from using their webcams and causing them much frustration and to return...

High-quality, budget, VGA webcam ; Easy hardware installation

Lousy software called LWS that has had a fatal error since 2010! and prevents many users from using their webcams. (The Logitech Engineers stated they don't know the reason for the error, though some users have fixed the issue after many hours and...

Works great

 

Ended up buying three of these so I could talk with family members while working away from home. So far everyone is happy with them. Cheap and effective, hard to beat.

These work great! First there is next to no installation if you have Windows 7 or above. No need for a install CD, just plug them in and Windows will optionally update them automatically. ZERO bloatware (a problem in the past with Logitech et al). They...

The only minor con about it: for the paranoid of us, knowing that there is a possibility any internet/wired camera or microphone can be remotely hijacked through targeted malware attacks..(although Big brother would get awfully bored listening/watching...
