Well, at least make sure it is listed as supported by one of these:

PERSONALLY, I like Logitech. Have used them for several years. BUT, as suggested, check the compatibility list.
Right now, I have a 9000 and the quality of image and sound is well above good. (do have an issue with lag and am working on that.)

Hello,

Both are listed on this site: http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/ so should work.

If you want to compare them, install them both and post results please

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

I use Opensuse 11.2. At work I have a Logitech S7500 webcam, both audio and video work perfectly. At home I have a Logitech C300, again all works perfectly. A colleague uses a Logitech S9000 in Linux too, no problems there either. I can highly recommend them, easy setup no fuss. We use them with Skype.

Cheers,
Phil
