Love to video chat with the grandparents but hate the grainy, low quality video your computer already has? Or, even more frustrating, does your computer not have a web camera at all?

Either way, Logitech‘s new QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac ($130) or Webcam Pro 9000 for PC ($100) are worth checking out.

Click below for our review!

We tested the Mac version — which is the company’s latest release — and it’s super cool. It features Carl Zeiss® optics with built-in autofocus lens, a built-in microphone and a 2 megapixel sensor.

It also offers high definition video and is compatible with Skype, iChat, plus Yahoo and AOL Instant Messenger.

Things We Like: It’s a breeze to set up. Plus, there’s no software to be installed. Just clip the webcam to the top of your desktop/laptop, plug it into a USB port and you’re all set.

Once the webcam starts up, you’ll be able to see yourself on the screen. To start, just sign into your favorite chat program (like Skype) and chat away!

Things We Didn’t Like: Clipping the webcam to the computer is somewhat difficult — it felt like it was going to fall off. Luckily, it didn’t.

CBB Rating: If you’re looking to enhance your video chat experience, this webcam is the way to go. The picture and sound are so clear, it feels like your loved ones are right there.
