Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision SE Webcam Review

Just as early as the VideoPhone was breathing its last breath, the webcam was making headlines. Of course, those early headlines were usually (and rightfully) associated with the pornography industry, since there weren't too many people willing to look at choppy video for any other reason. But once again, technology (dial-up Internet) was crippling the idea. It would have to wait until the turn of the century before people would finally give Webcams, grandson of the PicturePhone, its day.

Perhaps the time has finally come; or perhaps it has already returned and we are in the middle of the third act. Either way, the World Wide Web introduced the most recent vision of the video communications: the aptly named Webcam. Logitech, one of the industries pioneering forces, has constantly offered consumers reliable peripheral solutions. In this review, Benchmark Reviews will evaluate the progression of technology into a product which hopes to establish itself as the pinnacle of PicturePhone evolution: Logitech's QuickCam Ultra Vision Special Edition Webcam.

Enthusiasts will enjoy true-to-life video calls with twice the image clarity of conventional webcams, thanks to the precision-engineered, 5-element glass lens. QuickCam Ultra Vision uses Logitech RightLight2 Technology to give you the highest quality image regardless of your lighting, and RightSound for clear, echo-free audio. Its video calling that truly is true-to-life.

Would someone at Benchmark Reviews please check the large, outer lens on the Ultra Vision SE? The outer lens on my Ultra Vision SE is NOT GLASS. I pulled mine apart today after having much audio trouble with it, so much I planned to throw it out after pulling it apart. First thing I tested was the outer lens. I tapped on it with a metal screw-driver. It sounded plastic. I tapped the lens with my teeth. It felt plastic. I took a razor blade on the lens. The lens scratched easily. I put several scratches on the outer lens.. very easily... It's not glass.

Ouch! I presume that you did all of this with the intention of throwing it away after you were all done anyway.. that's an expensive experiment.

I no longer have my QuickCam Ultra, as it was given to a friend that moved away and wanted to keep in touch with family. If I talk to her again soon, I will ask and post the results.
