    Although many might think, based upon appearances, that the QuickCam Pro 4000 is like every other webcam, Logitech has come a long way from when they started making webcams. To show how far Logitech's webcams have come, I compared and contrasted the QuickCam Express (released June 22, 1999) with the QuickCam Pro 4000 (released August 26, 2002). Although the adage that newer is better holds in this case, the juxtaposition between the picture-quality of the two webcams is staggering.

    Most of the camera is covered in silver. Other parts of the camera, such as the focus ring, microphone, part of the stand, as well as the snapshot button are in black. Enough about the looks, now lets start the testing….
