I am looking for a webcam I can use on a PC, desktop. Right now my only intended use is Skype, although I'm sure I will find other uses in the future.

Thanks

Logitech makes some good webcams IMO it functions as a camera and a speaker.

I have this one. Its perfect for a webcam. It has a feature also where it will track your face if you move around - and that feature works well. Built in mic is a plus. Low light works nicely too. I recommend it.

Just another thought. I have an older video camera (Sony HDR-HC7) that, once connected via firewire is recognized as a webcam. It has ten times the capabilities of stand alone webcams and cost me nothing as I was going to get rid of it. Just a thought.

I use this one. Awesome IQ for a webcam. Wish my friends that I Skype with would return the favor and buy one for themselves. I'm so clear to them, but they're so fuzzy to me (using the laptop integrated webcams)
