Although friend and fellow VoIP blogger Alec Saunders is on record for being a skeptic about the visual quality of video calls, he recently decided to try a Skype video call using the new Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks.

For the call, Alec notes that he recruited Skype Journal's Jim Courtney. And please understand that although Skype is most certainly the nexus of Jim's coverage, he's always called Skype issues as he has seen them.

After the 20-minute call (screencapped above),  Alec writes:

Each of us ran the call in full screen mode.  In this mode, Skype puts your video into a thumbnail at the bottom of the screen, and then displays the other person on the full screen video.

It was as if Jim was across the table from me.

Right afterward I ordered another Logitech camera on eBay.  'nuff said.

For his part, Jim seems to agree with Alec's sentiments.

I've just received one of those Logitech QuickCams as well. Can't wait to try it out.
