My dad was early adopter of webcams. I was not. Looking back on it, he understood their power to bring people together that aren’t geographically close at all. During that time, he experienced the pain of bad internet connections, terrible drivers, and installation hell. I waited until all that disappeared.
I bought the Quickcam Pro for Notebooks because I have an increasingly growing number of people I want to talk to that aren’t anywhere close to me. This model caught my eye because it works for notebooks, but has an awesome stand for desktops. Not to mention it is super sleek and small.
Aesthetics are always important, but the quality is where the substance is and this camera has amazing quality. Skype HQ video is really awesome and I use it all the time.
Most importantly, the installation is super easy and lightweight. Pop in the CD, install, and it works. No problems, at least for me.
I highly recommend buying this webcam to anyone out there, you won’t regret it. Unlike the Arc mouse, I have had this camera longer and would buy another one if it broke tomorrow.
Not only do I recommend this webcam, but I recommend video conferencing for anyone that needs to talk to people remotely, but that’s a different story for a different day.
