Now that bandwidth is cheap and abundant and video is the chosen media of the web, it pays to have a webcam.
For some time these were cool toys, and in some respects they still are, but the webcam has finally started to cross over into the category of necessary peripherals, along with speakers, a printer, and a scanner.
Video sites like You Tube, hobbies like video blogging, and the services like Skype’s free video chatting all make a webcam worth having.

There are a lot of webcams available at, or under, the Pro 9000’s price point so choosing one can be difficult.
The Pro looks great on paper but we will be taking a close look to see how it performs under actual use.
