+1 for the Microsoft Lifecam range. I've also heard good things about Logitech. I would avoid 'cheap' or 'no name brand' webcams, my experience has been that they are usually dissapointing and have poor driver support.

freitasm: The Microsoft Lifecam are the best around.


+1.

Especially good for getting brownie (no punt intended) points with your better half - I use mine when I go away to keep in touch with my partner (I bought her one as well) and she loves it.

+1 for the L:ifecams as well.

Also the Logitech 9000 cameras are brilliant quality - ignore the RRP of $200+, can get them for half that if you look around.

I have a VX1000 Lifecam, bottom of the range microsoft one, but awesome,

have had others before, but this was cheap at the warehouse with a Microsoft cash back , it only ended up costs $14.95

cant complain at that and picture quality in different lighting conditions is what makes the difference with this one

only problem is cash back took 3 months ;)

well thats my reccomendation
