webcam recommendations?


Hi. I'd like to buy a cheap webcam so that I can try programming with video4linux. I'd prefer to buy something on ebay.co.uk for "price reasons". I was wondering if people could recommend webcams that they are successfully using with Linux. Some webcams that have sold recently on ebay.co.uk for my target price include:

Logitech ClickSmart 310 WebCam Digital Camera
*XCAM-630MS* USB COLOR WEBCAM+VIDEO CAM+BUILT IN MIC
Spycam 300 voice webcam made by Trust
Logitech Quickcam Webcam
IBM USB PC Camera Pro Webcam
Mustek 300A USB Webcam
PRAKTICA MICROPIX TINY DIGITAL CAMERA/PC WEBCAM
Logitech QuickCam Messenger WebCam Microphone
Philips Model PCA-646VC
3 COM "HomeConnect" Webcam, 640 x 480
creative labs webcam 2 USB version
Creative Webcam 'Vision': Video and Still Capture
Creative Video Blaster Webcam Go Plus NR
Creative Video Blaster Webcam II
Logitech Quickcam Pro USB Webcam
Logitech QuickCam VC Webcam (Parallel)
Logitech QuickCam Express USB Webcam + Mic

What would people recommend? Recommendations for webcams other than those on the list are fine too. I just gave the list to give an indication of target prices.

Thanks in anticipation,

Ross-c
