Hi I`m anticipating some PC World vouchers shortly for my birthday and thought I`d get a webcam. Can any of you who use or have used on give me some ideas as to their relative merits and what your recommendations would be. I think I`d be looking for at least a clear picture and good voice reproduction. Any help please?

Logitech make good, reliable, inexpensive webcams - I've got a QuickCam Chat - which has an adaptable bracket to sit nicely on a flat surface, or hook over the top of a TFT moniotr (not many do bith).

Picture quality is fine - but for decent sound quality use a headset.

I've also got a Logitech USB Headset20 headset - plugs neatly into a fron USB port - automatically switches to itself when plugged in - and back to speakers when removed (all by software, not a mechanical switch.) There's a slightly more expensive model which has a volume control in the lead too. Sound quality is good enough to listen to music too.

A headset is essential for good two-way audio - it prevents delayed feedback which is both annoying and off-putting.

Very happy with the combination.
