Looking for a nice new webcam that is digitally signed

by rbtcnd / May 5, 2006 6:58 AM PDT

I need some assistance on choosing and buying a new webcam. I previously had one but my experience on it was so bad, it's device driver is not digitally signed for Windows XP, I ignored that warning and proceded with driver installation and after that it disabled the autoplay function for my CDROM and corrupted my Windows XP PRO! I want a decent webcam to be used in an internet chat and for online conferecing but has a device driver digitally signed for Windows XP and I'm ready to shell out $300 for it.

A4Tech is a smaller player that may not want to invest in signed drivers and the costs.

Logitech on the other hand.
