Webcam For Use With Skype

Can any of you suggest some good webcams for use with Skype? I know zilch, so any suggestion will help.

I use a logitech, but just about any webcam will work. I would see no reason to buy an expensive one. My laptop comes with a webcam. asus epc 1000he. Also wife's hp laptop. Both work well with skype, in fact the asus comes with skype installed. Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 (68A-00001): Electronics

might try this one. Cheap, and good reviews.

If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.

I used to have a couple of logitech webcams (2 different models including a very expensive one, used on 2 different computers with 2 different OS). The cameras were great (awesome picture), but the software was cr@p for both of them. Frequent crashes requiring rebooting and other compatibily issues really turned me off.

I now have a Microsoft LifeCam and it works flawlessly with Skype. Good picture, very stable, great microphone built-in.

That's the one I have now:

That's the expensive one I used to have:
