    2Not worth it. Go for the Microsoft LifeCam 3000, PICTURE COMPARISON INCLUDED
    By Amazon Customer
    I would not recommend purchasing this webcam if you have the choice between this and the LifeCam 3000. First off this webcam is really hard to mount and change angles without completely messing it up. The webcam also has a very small lens which means that your video will appear to be much closer, sometimes too close for comfort.
    In comparison, the LifeCam 3000 features a wide angle lens which allows for a much better picture. You can see the picture I’ve attached.

    I would not recommend this webcam at all.

    By Bob T
    We've come a long way from AT&T's dream of picture phones or the massive equipment needed to video tele-conference. Picture quality, light metering and focus are spot-on in auto. But you can tweek picture elements to suit your taste.

    4Four Stars
    By Sno
    First of all Logitech never disappoints, this thing came in a nice package. The camera also feels durable doesn’t feel cheap to me at least. Use this for skype and mainly for streaming when I used to. The quality of the video is pretty clear and crisp. My only concern is that the little hook for it to put on top of your computer is not stable. Wish they had made it like a clip or something. At least a little improved so that it stays on better, I definitely would recommend this to anyone that needs a webcam. It is not that expensive.
