Once we bought our new PC we decided to buy a web cam. We have had really good luck with the logitech products so it made sense to us to buy Logitech again. This web cam makes it easy to stay in touch with your friends and loved ones with it single click video call feature. It also offers live video and audio that works with Yahoo IM and other instant messaging applications, The Specs for this particular cam are Video Capture 640x480 pixels, still image capture 640x480, frame rate up to 30 frames per second, USB 2.0 certified, manual focus and several more features. It also comes with a 30 day free trail of Logitech video call (with on line photo sharing function), one click video email and quick capture for photos and video. Minimum requirements for this specific web cam are Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista, Pentium III 700MHz, Celeron, AMD Athlon processor or higher, 128 MB RAM, 200 MB free space on hard drive, CD Rom drive, windows compatible sound card and speakers as well as available USB 1.1 or 2.0 port. For a cheap webcam I think that this is an OK product and have found it very useful so far.
