Some Logitech QuickCam owners who reviewed the Logitech QuickCam wrote that it was good quality. One purchaser wrote “I could not believe quite how bad the quality was - even at very small image sizes”. One purchaser also wrote “I was amazed at the quality of the pictures”.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The QuickCam has a built-in microphone. Most of the other full HD webcams that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in microphone.

We compared all the other webcams with a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech Pro 9000 ($32), the V7 Professional HD Webcam 720P, and the Gembird A4-PK-920H is also worth considering.

Performance

Very Low Megapixel

Full HD webcams that have been on the market for more than two years have megapixels of between 0.3MP and 16MP. The Logitech QuickCam has a quite low megapixel (only 1.3 megapixels) compared to most of the other comparable spec webcams that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1.3MP webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech QuickCam Deluxe ($5.93).

If you would prefer a higher megapixel then you might want to consider the Hama Digital Eye II PRO (2MP), the Logitech TV Cam HD ($340) (2MP), or the Sweex WC350 (2MP) which also has a higher rating.
