My wife's family lives in Europe so we spend lots of time on Skype - especially since we have a 4 month old baby. Our Acer laptop has an OK webcam built in, but I wanted my mother-in-law to feel "almost there" when she was seeing her granddaughter. So I researched HD webcams looking for the sweet spot between price, portability and quality. The C510 hits the mark. It is reasonable in price and is very compact with a nifty storage case for when we are just using the built in webcam.

Initially, I was dissapointed when there was no noticable increase in video quality while Skyping. I soon learned that the problem was not with the webcam itself, but with my research (and Skype). Currently, this camera will not work as an HD Skype camera. If you want that, you need to buy a webcam with a built in HD encoder, which are more expensive. Otherwise, Skype will be a low-def experience. I don't understand why Skype has this requirement when so few webcams have an encoder. I suspect that as more and more HD cams hit the market, we will see Skype change its restrictive policy.

Fortunately, the solution is easy. If you want full 720p HD video chats, look no farther than the Logitech C510 installation disc. Logitech was smart enough to create a very simple, yet high quality video chat program called HD Vid. Once you install it, you send an invite through the program to anyone who you want to chat with. They simply accept and auto intall the software on their computer and you are in business. They don't even need to have a HD webcam. They will still see you in HD, while you will see them in standard-def. And if they don't have a webcam, they can still see you in HD, while you will hear them - so this program is very compatible and much easier than anything else I have used.

Logitech HD Webcam C510 with 720p Video and Swivel Design ...
Logitech has really done something amazing with this webcam. running on a windows 7 machine I had this webcam installed in 5 minutes and was able to use skype and all my other applications with no hiccup. the lighting adjuster on the webcam works great not matter what kind of light you are in and the built in microphone is great with auto adjusting the volume, had no problems with feedback from my surround sound speakers also. This is a great buy no matter what you are in the market for. The HD video on this web cam lives up to the promises. Quick auto focusing, good image quality in low light, very good frame rates at 720P and below, works out of the box in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (64-bit) without installing anything else, clever stand that works on the desk or on a monitor or lap top, decent cable length too. Not like the Logitech C910 USB 2.0 1080p HD Pro Webcam, that has Poor frame rates at 1080P resolution, base is not heavy enough so it moves easily, software takes a long time to install in Windows, software is annoying in Windows (pop-up, starting at boot, registration prompts, etc.), audio quality is not very good. Stay with the Logitech HD Webcam C510 with 720p.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have had logitech webcams for the past 8 years. In fact I've pretty much been using the same camera for the last 8 years. At one point I tried a Microsoft camera and was disappointed and always went back to my logitech. That being said, my logitech I had was really old, but it still works. So when I got the chance to try this camera out I jumped at it.

I have 2 computers at home that I use. One is a mac, this camera is NOT compatible with the mac initially. If you are technically inclined you can get the basic features of the camera to work, but this isn't supported or for the everyday user to try to do.

On the windows PC which is a supported system installing the camera and software is a breeze. I had the camera up and running in about 15 minutes.

I played with many of the features and wow has logitech come a long way in the webcam development. The software works great with Microsoft messenger; it says Skype although I haven't tried it there yet. The video quality while isn't true HD at 1080p, it is a 720p HD cam and you can really tell the difference in quality from this model versus one of the logitech cameras from the past.

Overall I am very happy with this camera. It is really easy to use, really easy to install and the quality of the camera and built-in microphone are phenomenal.

I am thinking of ordering a few more of these for my family to use so we can all keep in communication with eachother via video chats. With the simplicity of this thing I think even those in my family who have issues with basic computer functions can get this running with no trouble at all.

***UPDATE**** 6/25/2010

Since I use a windows computer at work I decided to bring this webcam in and hook it up to my work computer.

I purchased this item (Logitech C510) Logitech HD Webcam C510 with 720p Video and Swivel Design here on Amazon to replace a similar product from a different manufacturer.
I am a Linux user and I actively use Skype, empathy, ekiga Google Talk. I have many friends and family who are abroad.
There was one reviewer that gave a positive review for Ubuntu. I can confirm it works equally well in Fedora 14 using the UVC driver. It is truly plug and play!
So far I have tested it with Skype, Empathy, Ekiga and Google Talk Plugin.
For Skype, Empathy and Ekiga it works flawlessly with the best video quality I have ever seen! Clarity, color balance and brightness were also as good as it gets for Linux.
The built in mic is recognized by Pulseaudio and have used it for both personal and conference calls.
It too is excellent. It is best to use an app like Skype or Ekiga with the mic portion as they offer echo cancellation.
The Mic portion worked well with Google Talk but video kept crashing, this is likely an issue with Google Talk (especially since I am using 64 bit Fedora and even 64 bit Windows users seem to be having issues with Google Talk.) No biggie! 3 out of 4 major video conferencing apps are not bad!

As always in Linux if there are any specific features the driver offered does not usually allow for the same level of features but that is as much an application thing as well.

Other Considerations
I used Cheese to test the video resolutions and you can scale through a myriad of video resolutions including HD ones.

Google updated its Gtalk plugin for Linux and I can confirm that Gtalk works great with this Camera as well, so now 4 for 4 major linux video conferencing apps confirmed (Ekiga, Empathy, Skype and Gtalk!)
