Overall I am very pleased with the Logitech web cam. It looks good, works perfectly and is a high quality web cam for the price. While the web cam doesn't have some of the advanced digital camera features that some of the new web cams have been coming out with over the past few months, it does far better with what it advertises itself as, the picture quality is excellent, easily the best out of any web cam I have used over the last few years and the still pictures I have taken with it have also been of a very high quality.

I can easily recommend the Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000, it is an excellent web cam for the home or business user, the software works exceedingly well and I have yet to have any trouble with the camera what so ever. The picture quality is second to none and the addition of a microphone inside the web cam is an added bonus. All in all if you use web cams, you can't go wrong with this Logitech one.
