Logitech's award-winning Quickcam Pro 9000 can be yours for less than $50. Logitech

There are lots of cheapo Webcams out there, but the really good ones will set you back upwards of $100.

Right now, Logitech is offering a refurbished Quickcam Pro 9000 for $42.49 (after applying coupon code MIR15), plus $6.15 for shipping. That gets you out the door for $48.64--by far the lowest price I've seen.

Even though it's a few years old, the Quickcam Pro 9000 is widely regarded as one of the best Webcams on the planet.

Indeed, CNET gave it four stars and an Editors' Choice nod, and I did likewise when I reviewed it for PC Magazine a couple years back.

Both reviews should tell you everything you need to know about the 9000, which, incidentally, I used when I appeared via Skype on CNET's Holiday Help Desk last year. It worked like a champ.

Although this is a refurb, Logitech backs it with--are you sitting down?--a two-year warranty.

Thus, if you're in the market for a top-rated, top-quality Webcam, here's your chance to score one for half the regular price.
