Looking for a good, cheap, webcam

How is the Logitech c500? On sale for $33 plus tax from Best Buy:

I'm just looking for something to use with Skype.

Re: Looking for a good, cheap, webcam

I have a Microsoft Lifecam NX-3000 which works well. Nothing very fancy, but voice is clear, picture is bright, and it's very quick to set up. The only thing annoying was that it keeps trying to get you to use MSN Messenger, but you don't have to. I use it with Skype.

The only thing I'd add is that I used on a laptop with Windows XP. Not sure if there is any driver problem with Vista or Win 7.

I've never used a webcam that didn't work flawlessly with Skype.
