    I own a Mac Pro, one of the few Apple computers that comes without a webcam. I needed one so that I could do Google hangouts with my drum instructors that live in Canada while I am in California. Right out of the box the camera plugged into a USB port and it worked. No drivers, no software installation, just worked. I can't say that about anything I ever used on my PC. The picture is fantastic and I couldn't be happier. Tested mine on a Mac only...

    I bought this camera to use with my Macbook air for a weekly web show that I do. I wanted something a little better than the build in iSite camera. This camera was one of the few HD cameras that I could find that would work with my Mac. It just plugs right in and you're ready to go, almost. I found the picture to be overexposed at first and needed to download the software from logitech to correct it. Once I did that I had a much better picture. To be honest I think this camera could cost about $80 less for what you get but your choices are limited if you're buying for a Mac.

        Comments about Logitech C930e Webcam:

        So far this little buddy is working fine. Full HD. Plug and play. Works on both my Mac and PC. First thing I really like; It has plenty of space for the grip. It had to fit over my Mac Cinema Display and it is really thick. I was worried about this. Number two; this may sound silly but I love that the lens has a little sliding cover that way the eye of HAL is not staring at you when not in use. It looks attractive and seems well made. Lets hope I do not have to edit this in a couple of months. It is a tad pricey however...

          Totally awesome webcam! Run, don't walk to your nearest electronic store and grab yourself one of these marvels of technical wizardry. I just cannot fathom how Logitech crammed so much technology into such a small package. Videos recorded from this tiny contraption rival those made with my fancy DLSR. I got me a 12 foot USB extension cord, a stable tripod and some cheap lighting and voila! You have a very capable video camera for a little over 100 clams! Viva Logitech! Kudos to B&H for its superb service and lightning fast delivery.

            I originally intended on purchasing the c920 but the price from B&H encouraged me to go with this one. I have not had a chance to use it for its intended use which is for my online testing at the end of the courses I'm taking online. I did however connect it to make sure it works. The wide field of view is impressive and I really like the privacy shutter when not in use. Its very flexible and can be used with just about any monitor. I may even purchase a tripod. I've used other webcams and none seem to compare to this just yet. Very good quality build. The software also allows you to zoom in on area of interest.

                Webcam for teleconferences. Video features are excellent, but audio is terrible.From the start, remote users complained that the sound was terrible and that I could not be understood. I never had this problem with my earlier "tennis-ball" Logitech camera. I ended up continuing to use the "tennis ball" for the audio source while using the c930e for video.I had the same experience on Skype, Webex and Google Hangouts.A discussion on the Logitech forum confirms that the problem was not with my unit, but with the design of the device. Others also have the problem.

                    The video is OK, but I still need to experiment with lighting that will--I believe--bring it up to my original expectations. The micophone is horrible, muddies the sound and even in decent software I cannot improve it. Answer? Ordered a dedicated microphone. I wish reviewers would have noted that, or, in posts explain how to improve it. I don't have the time to fool with it, so ordered the USB mic. Hopefully that will work and the two will produce decent quality in Camtasia

                        The Logitech C930e is billed as a top end webcam that can work, both on a Mac and on a PC. What they don't tell you is that in order to get the webcam to do video on the Mac, you need to go through a tricky and long process of disabling the built-in isight camera. For some purposes, this wouldn't be a problem but becomes more problematical if you are using a MacBook and have to carry the C930e around with you.

                        I called Logitech for help and they said that I should call Apple to figure out how to disable the iSight camera.

                        Very unhappy.

                              I use my web cam for webinars and professional instructional in the field of education. This web cam is perfect for professional use but not so complicated or bulky to make it frustrating. First of all it is a plug and play for PC AND Mac! If you have a mac mini, this is your webcam!
                              The quality of the video is astounding and the width of the shot is perfect for needing extra space shown behind/beside you for products or charts etc.
