Webcam choice - HELP

  Jada 09:43 14 Nov 2004

Hello all I am considering purchasing a webcam, and have the following in mind.

Logitech QuickCam Messenger
Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000
Creative WebCam NX Pro

I have read a few reviews and the LQ Messenger seems a good choice, however there are reports that it does not install very well with Microsoft XP.

Can anyone give me some advice on these or any other optional webcams.

Many thanks

I would suggest the QuickCam Pro 4000. All reports on this are very good. My friend has one, and I can vouch for its quality.

Reports on the Messenger indicate that inaddition to XP problems, the quality is poor.

If you go for the 4000, ensure you have the very latest Logitech XP drivers.

Hello Anchor

Thanks for that. I think I am of the same opinion.

Does anyone else have any views?

Thanks again

You can get some superb web cams for a fraction of the price, such as those on offer at Argos. They sell a cam (with a 2 for the price of 1 offer) named 'view cam', and to be honest, they're just as good, and just as compatible with all software, as Logitech's expensive models. Shop around.
