I use the C510 for Skype and it's just perfect. The C310 should also be a good option if you want to cut costs just a bit.

looks like the 510 has a bit better quality with it, im going to hold this as my favorite right now as the sub 50 cam

thanks

how much of a difference would the facevision touchcam n1 make compared to a C510 ?

just curious as theres a 15% off coupon i just got via email on all webcams on newegg

Sorry, late response, fell asleep lol

If anything the Facevsion *seems* to be identical to the C510, just much better looking, but I honestly have no experience with it...reviews really put it on a pedestal though.

The only real advantage I can see in the Facevsion is the dual mic feature. Though I can tell you from experience, the C510 has a great mic, almost to the point that a pixie sprinkled magic dust on it. It's extremely good, doesn't cut out works or anything, and doesn't pick up background noise, I'm quite surprised with it

Considering the price difference on newegg, I'd put the C510 over the Facevsion.

Oh and if it's worth anything, the bundled Logitech Software is pretty useless.. not that it's a huge surprise. The hardware is what counts
