When it works Halleluia!!!

Reading Toni's article on Sunday about computer problems I can concur with her that it was a very difficult week. But as the title suggests when it does it's fantastic and this product deserves a mention it being a Logitech QuickCam Plus E3500 web-cam.

The reason we wanted a web-cam that was easy to use was to be able to contact friends and family either in this country or abroad. It so much better to talk to friends over the Internet when you can see them and not just through e-mail or instant messaging. The CD that came with the product was excellent and guided you through each stage of installing the software to use the web-cam and within a few minutes we were set.

Now came the acid test, making a video call to friends in Cyprus. We started the Skype program, inserted our friends Skype name and after a pause waiting for them to answer there they were. We were able to see each other and chat straight away.

This was the first time I had added a new gadget and software to the computer that did what it said on the tin with no problems. I can certainly recommend this gadget especially to those other villagers that have family abroad and the best thing is apart from the cost of the web-cam all video calls are free.

Anyone who wants to buy this gadget have a look below you won't be disappointed.
