Webcam recommendations

Last Modified: 2015-07-04
Hi experts

I am looking to purchase a webcam for a desktop computer. This is mainly for Skype. I tend not to be a cheap person and like quality. On the other hand, for Skype, it would seem that a webcam is a webcam. Most of the inexpensive ones are Logitech. Logitech is a proven company, although they are frustrating with their marketing strategy of offering over 100 mice. (OK, so I exaggerate a little)

Anyway, if I am willing to spend anywhere in the $100 to $400 range, and I want a good quality webcam, what would be some recommendations? I know some have mics and some do zoom, etc. Not sure if I would need that.
