Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000

 

The Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 is a well-rounded Webcam with ample adjustability and a solid software package, making it a good option for users at any level of expertise.

Clear picture for video and still shots; vibrant colors; "boosts" for different lighting situations; sensitive microphone; headset included.

Whites are blown out in dim settings; some digital noise in black backgrounds; privacy shield comes off too easily; camera is too easy to remove from stand.

Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Review and Prices

 

The Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 offers a satisfying variety of features in a webcam that is easy to use. The suggested retail price isn't the greatest, but the Pro 5000 works well in most situations.

Good image and audio quality, includes a built-in microphone

No manual focus ring, no face tracking feature, privacy shield is flimsy

Works Great

 

I don't understand the problems reported here and elsewhere. This product works fine out of the box. Highly recommended!

Easy setup, good images, no problems

Privacy shade easily comes off; so what? You can turn video off

how to stop the static noise in WinXP

 

Video is very good.

Some Logitech driver conflicts with WinXP, causing intermittent static noise during mp3 and other sound playback on XP.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works with Mac.

 

It has worked perfectly with Skype and Yahoo Messenger for Mac.

Works perfectly with my Mac mini without needing to install any special drivers. Image quality is great. All I did was plug it in to my viewsonic Monitor's USB hub and it was instantly recognized and worked right away with Skype. Some webcam don't work...

The privacy cover comes off way too easily. I wish it was designed a little better

Good for chatting. This won't show blemishes, so the user tend to look better
