Lastly, I used the cam to make and upload a video to three different sites. I used the lowest video setting of 320x240 and the HD setting of 960x720. The three sites were YouTube, Crackle (formerly Grouper), and VideoSnap (which is for selling on sites like eBay).
For the testing, I compared the two settings and the Logitech QuickCam 5000 in ease of making the video, quality prior to uploading, and quality after uploading to online sites. All scores are on a scale of one to one hundred and the higher is better.
The ease of use was the same since the software that drives them are similar. The HD video of the QuickCam Pro 9000 was by far superior to the lower quality of the two (the QuickCam 5000 only does low resolution video). As far as the uploaded video, they came in the same because all of the sites resample the video to save on space and faster play rates. It would have been nice to upload and play HD video, but this is no way the fault of the QuickCam, which performed flawlessly.
