Webcam advice

  1. I'm deployed. Maybe 9000 miles away from my family. We try using skype but the picture i get from my wife's laptop is very blurry. She is on a broadband line, good connection. I couldn't tell you what I'm on here, but it is plenty for online gaming so I assume it's at least decent. It is wireless.

    She says the picture she's gettng is pretty good so it must be the webcam she's using. I'm using the one that came installed on my studio xps 1640 with Dell Webcam Central. Seems to work quite well.

    My question is, what is a pretty nice webcam that I can buy for her and the family back in the states to use? Around $50 would be nice, but I'm not ruling anything out. Not looking for Hi Def quality, but at least something decent where it's not blurry and has more then 3 frames per second lol.

    Thanks for any help!

    The Microsoft Lifecam VX 7000 is nice

    what's her OS and which camera is currently installed?

    does she have the same issue with everyone?
