If you do things right, then people won't know if you've done anything at all.

I would suggest taking a look at the Logitech line of webcams, based on my experiences (which are limited).

To me, the hardest part about deciding what webcam to buy is trying to figure out the quality one will get regarding video...to satisfy individual tastes/preferences.

I agree with Hamluis. Logitech's peripherals are generally quite good, and they offer a range of prices, good software, and adequate customer support. Better advice might be forthcoming if you were to tell us what you want to do with the webcam, and your expectations for clarity. For just casual chat, you need not have a top of the line webcam, for example.

Well, after taking your suggestions into consideration I went out to Wal-Mart and bought a "Logitech QuickCam Express" which is working quite nicely considering Im only going to be using it for visual chatting(or whatever its called) on Yahoo! messenger.
So thanks for the help; it was much appreciated!
