webcam for Skype

Postby ieee488 » Fri Jun 28, 2013 9:40 am

My mom is thinking about buying a webcam for Skype.

Looking at the choices on Newegg, webcams start from about $10.

Does she need to pay more than that?

I have a few Logitech C110 Webcams that I got for $5 after rebate and they work great! Unless she wants HD, the $10 cams are usually more than enough.

I have this too, you may have to help her out and download some drivers to her computer
