Customer Reviews of Logitech C905 QuickCam for Notebooks Pro Webcam
Small and sweet4/23/2013
The unit is small, portable, and easily clips onto the top of the laptop. Easy to install and easy to use.
A nice camera with case and headphone/mic7/17/2012
I have been very pleased with this camera. I own an IBM Thinkpad with WinXP. I had no trouble setting it up and use it for video IM conversations. The mounting clip is nice and sturdy and the usb cord is shorter for laptop use. I was so suprised to see the poor reviews that I had to write my first one validating the quality of this camera.
Good video quality. Easy installation. It is very easy to set up. It is small and wonderful.
Bought this for the grandparents. The picture that we see is excellent. Use Skype over MSN Messenger if possible. I'm normally a messenger guy but the sound quality was terrible. I'm going to use Skype from now on.
Excellent image quality, very compact1/15/2009
The image quality is excellent and the camera is very compact and easy to travel with. It comes with a convenient little travel pouch. The monitor clip worked well for me and clipped very nicely to my laptop's screen. (As opposed to the VERY poorly designed monitor clip on the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000, which is the desktop version.)
This was a Cyber Monday purchase for $50. Camera works great, installs easily. The purchase had no glitches. The shipping was fast. Now to research further and find out why this OLD laptop won't pass the microphone signal that from all indications is present.
Great Web Cam12/23/2008
Easy to use right out of the box. Set up is a breeze. Clarity of the Zeiss lens is superior to other webcams. Having the ability to put the cam on the stand is also a plus.
Best webcam for the money12/5/2008
Folks who now see me on the Net, state that the image is distinct and clear. Works well in MSWindows and Linux. Definitely worth the money.
subject line speaks for itself.
Quick Shipping - Great Product12/2/2008
I ordered this camera on a Sunday afternoon... I got the free shipping which was 10-14 business days and on Wednesday, it was here.. three days!! I was impressed. My mother and I bought the same camera so we could use it to keep in touch. I love it. It is **so** worth the money (which isn't that much in fact). It has great picture quality and AWESOME sound quality. I would recommend that if you can hear yourself through the other persons camera, that they turn down their sound. That's the only thing we've come across. All in all a wonderful transaction and product. YAY Buy.com!
a little more money, but well worth it9/23/2008
I just got a new laptop and I didn't want to get the built-in webcam that was being offered as an option because I heard from some it was okay but not great. The QuickCam Pro web cam is - in a word - great. It is a little more expensive than the average you would pay for a cam, but well worth it. With the Carl Zeiss optics (famous for camera lenses and optical lenses on microscopes) the clarity looks like you are looking into a mirror, very sharp imaging. The cam itself and the software set up was very easy, almost idiot-proof to set up and the lens case and the cam stand that all come with this made it an easy decision to buy.
This webcam is amazing9/16/2008
Picture looks so clear especially when you use it on Skype with HD video! Price was also very affordable and shipping was fast.
Best webcam on the Market8/8/2008
I have a total of 3 of these cams, one of them I sent with my kids who are visiting abroad. This cam has the best picture of all the cams I've tried including the Microsoft cam. Worth every penny. If this package had any faults it would the bloatware logitech software.
Very pleased with how easy this camera was to install and how easy it has been to use. The ease of use certainly does not come as a sacrifice to performance. I would buy it again in a heartbeat when I need another webcam.
Excellent cam for notebooks5/13/2008
I almost bought the QuickCam UltraVision for the road but many had said this cam was of quality. I must agree; it is excellent. You will not be disappointed and the nice small zippered bag is a great accessory for me when I travel. I travel 3 weeks per month and enjoy using the cam with Skype, etc.
i have a couple of webcams, and my whole family & i communicate with each other via skype video calls, so i'm familiar with the quality of many different makes/models including creative and microsoft as several models from logitech. i use this one with my laptop and i often take it to work. one day when i was chatting with my sister, there was a book sitting on top of a divider wall about 10 feet behind me (so about 11 from the camera). she said she could read the title on the spine. the picture on this camera is SO clear & sharp it's amazing, and everything about using it is easy. the microphone picks up my voice easily, so if i'm at work, i don't have to raise it and disturb the people around me in order for the person i'm calling to hear me. i am ordering another one now b/c i'm spoiled and now unhappy with the creative camera i use with my desktop machine at home... this camera is not that much more than other models, but it is heads & shoulders above when it comes to performance.
Can't go wrong with this webcam12/14/2007
Logitech really takes pride in their webcams and in my opinion, they have produced some pretty high quality webcams for the price. I tried several webcams in Logitech's lineup before settling on the QuickCam for Notebooks Pro. The QuickCam Pro 9000 is exactly the same in terms of picture quality and performance, but is larger and doesn't come with a carrying case or stand like this one. However, the USB cable is rather short, since it's designed to slip onto your notebook. You will need a USB extension to use it from any sort of distance from the computer. Logitech has some really good software that provides a lot of control over the picture, and can be adjusted in real time while using any application that is using the webcam. My biggest gripe has to be the automatic RightLight technology. This was designed to keep the picture looking great even when the light levels are low. One of the settings it uses is low light boost. This seems to be the main level for increasing the picture brightness in low light. However, even on my brand new 2.4GHz Intel Core2 Duo computer, this setting drops the frame rate significantly. IT's the equivalent of reducing the shutter speed on a camera to let in more light. My recommendation is to turn off Rightlight and make sure low light boost is always set to a minimum, which typically gives you 30 frames per second or higher at 640x480 resolution (SD TV quality). If it's too dark, they do have more standard brightness/contrast settings that can brighten it up, but the best solution is to turn on some more light in the room. Another gripe is the autofocus. It's slow and gets lost easy. I recommend setting it to manual and keep the distance at maximum. The only time this is a problem is when you want to show something up close to the camera, in which case you can manually focus it. Probably the best thing about this camera is that it is certified by Skype for their new High Quality video functionality. I highly recommend this combination for video conferencing. It's free and works great. My neighbor was communicating from Texas to Australia and it was like they were in the next house. Oh yeah, and if you have kids (or are video conferencing with some), be sure to check out Logitech's video effects. These allow you to change the image the other people see from you in some really funny ways.
Logitech's software may not stable12/1/2007
This is the third generation QuickCam Pro for notebook that I have. The Auto Focus is the main reason to purchase. It's really amazing feature and very useful for the conference call. There are two choose when you install software. You can install driver only or driver with Logitech software. Usually, I only install driver only. But, this time, I tried the Logitech software and got some bad experiences. First thing is the Skype program warned me that Logitech's software try to control it. After that, I feel my Skype is not stable. It happened twice that I cannot hang up the video conference. Second thing is that my system hang once when I use the video recording feature. I cannot stop it until unplug the power. However, so far it's ok after I change to driver only mode.
Greatest price plus Free Shipping from an online S11/27/2007
I had great experience buying many electronic toys from Buy.com. Their price is always the lowest among online sellers. At Buy.com you can save time comparing price of the item you buying with other sellers like Circuit City and J&R, etc before making decision to order. At Buy.com you mostly can enjoy the free shipping charge. I highly recommend every one to buy your stuffs here. What I want more from Buy.com is if they could carry more items than what they carry now.
Great picture but some flaws9/25/2007
This camera appears very well made, solid construction, good looking design but with a couple flaws. When clipped on my laptop screen it actually hangs down over the LCD obscuring a small part of it. The picture looks great, even in relatively low light. The autofocus works most of the time, but occasionally goes all blurry and you have to reset it. Although I didn't buy it for this, one of its other touted features, the Logitech Video Effects, is very buggy and didn't work at all. I tried installing on 2 different XP computers and the effects did not work on either. You can read all about the problems on the Logitech Forums. Overall though, it produces a great picture so I have been mostly happy with it.
This camera really is so easy to use and it has worked great.
