Looking for recommendation for inexpensive web cam with/without micfoe Skype. I already have a working mic.

Running M12B2-64. System is HP xw4400 workstation, dual core 2.4g with 8GB ram. My old webcam got damaged and no longer produces picture. UVC is loaded on system.

I have the logitech quickcam E3500, works like a charm out of the box :smile:

It is not supernew, but that is fine. It works and does what it needs to do. It has a usb mic built in.

I bought a Logitech C310 on sale at newegg a while back, and it works fine for my wife using Skype (under Mepis 11) for video calls with friends and family.

Here's a listing for one at Amazon:
