    Logitech is fairly boiler plate and this looks like a deal:

    Don't get the QuickCam Sphere (QuickCam Orbit in the USA), sure... it looks sexy, but:

    a) You need to install their drivers full of bloatware. I tried hacking the driver installer a bit, but I couldn't get it to work without installing the Logitech extraware. As a result, the camera is installed on my old Dell and on my spotless big-blue box Smiley

    b) It only has a 640x480 CCD inside it... the picture quality isn't the best (compared to a real digital camera). I've heard the QuickCam Pro 4000 has a higher-quality chip inside it.

    c) The "head tracking" feature is overrated if totally useless outside meeting rooms. (Where they usually have proper cameras anyway)

    c) If you choose to have it in "cute" mode, you need to find somewhere to stick the stand when not in use, I've lost it a few times now.
