5 out of 5 eggsGreat Webcam for Dollar Spent!

Pros: Value for price, 3 year Logitech warranty, simple to install & use, fantastic replacement for inferior inbuilt notebook webcams. This can be used for several things, including motion detection to watch a room. Takes very good pictures, even in a dim room, something that inbuilt webcams doesn't do well.

Cons: I didn't order 2 of them! Had I known how good & feature filled it was, at the promo price, I would have bought 2 or possibly 3.

Can I give myself a con for that?

Other Thoughts: No software CD included, I guess that's why it OEM. Had to go to the Logitech site to get drivers, however being that this is a "Certified for Windows Vista" product, updated drivers would likely be needed anyway. Was packaged very well to prevent damage during transit.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this product, every Logitech product that I've owned, regardless of price, has been good purchases. I expect no less with this webcam.

Just purchased this last week, why is it listed as discontinued?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: With Win 7 64bit plug and go, no extra driver install. Used with Gmail Voice Chat and worked great... I don't have an extensive background with Webcams so i can't speak on comparative quality to other webcams. Only got so my folks could see their new grandkid more often, and everyone is happy...so video and audio quality is good enough for them

Cons: wasn't free LOL

4 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: I bought this PSU because my previous one I had installed couldn't power up my computer properly and it was having surge issues. Since I installed this one my computer runs perfectly. It was easy to install and I've had no issues with it since.

Cons: Small high pitch squeal but nothing too obnoxious.

Other Thoughts: Definitely would buy thermaltake again if I needed another PSU.
