I bought this camera a few days ago, I saw a lot of great positive reviews on the internet and the price was amazing. So when I opened the box the instructions told me to insert the CD and it installed pretty quickly, it also installs other software like "Logitech Vid HD" which I have to say is useless so I removed it, it also installs effects to use with the camera, but some of them crash the programme and if you click "get more effects" there are none available for this camera. It also comes with "Motion Detection" software that could be useful but the downside is that you have to leave it on and it turns your monitor screen back on when it starts recording so that makes it not very useful either. Finally it also comes with Magix photo and video editing software that is available free to download off the internet anyway. I had a few problems installing everything but eventually managed. Once all of this was set up I used it to record a test video using the Logitech recording software, and I have to say I was amazed with the sound quality that the microphone recorded but what was even better was the picture quality, you can choose the quality but I would keep it at the 720p. It works great with Skype and you can upload directly to YouTube and it will be available as 720p. Another interesting feature is the "Follow face" it does what it says and it zooms into your face and follows it wherever you go. I am very happy with this webcam and would recommend it to anyone, it is the only camera in the price range that has a 5MP camera. Verdict: If Logitech fixes all of the bugs in the software with updates it would make this the most amazing camera for the price. But apart from that the hardware is great.
