I bought this web cam for my technologically naive parents. I really liked the price and I know Logitech has a well-deserved good reputation. I actually had my ten-year-old set it up for them as a surprise. We only had a few minor technical difficulties (needed to reboot the computer in order to get the speakers and the web cam to work together). The quality of the "picture" is not super sharp, but for the money, I'm completely satisfied. The audio was perfect. My parents love it and cannot believe that they are now able to "talk" for free with their grandkids 5 states away, and actually SEE them as well. For the money, you can't go wrong with this web cam. I would highly recommend it for your basic Skype needs.
