7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Webcam Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Logitech webcams and also specifically for Logitech low megapixel count webcams and found that in both cases Logitech had excellent reviews compared to other brands.

USB Powered

The Logitech B500 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams that are a similar age to the B500 are not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1, the Kloner KWC0078, or the Mediatech MT4040.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to the B500, the Logitech B500 has a built-in microphone.

It is worth also looking at alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Gembird CAM0360U-1, the Kloner KWC0078, or the Mediatech MT4040.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech B500 is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Webcams of this age and type maximum video resolutions range from 640 x 480 pixels to 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech B500 has a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the B500 do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to consider include the Gembird CAM0360U-1.

Quite Long Cable Length

Webcams of this spec and age have cable lengths of between 0.73m and 5.7m, and the average cable length is 1.8m. At 1.82 meters, the Logitech B500 has a fairly long cable length compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

At only 200 megabytes, the Logitech B500 has a quite small minimum hard disk space compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the B500. Across all the low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago the minimum hard disk space range from 130MB to 1.6GB, and the average minimum hard disk space is 440MB.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for more than two years, the Logitech B500 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech B500 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the B500 also do not feature face tracking.

It is worth also looking at other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Mediatech MT4030K.

Not Mac Compatible

The Logitech B500 is not Mac compatible. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the B500 are also not Mac compatible.

If you would prefer a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might want to look at the A4Tech PK-635.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Logitech B500 does not have a zoom capability. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to the B500 also do not have a zoom capability.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a zoom capability that you might also want to consider including the Mediatech MT4030K which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the B500 do not have a night mode. The Logitech B500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1 is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Logitech B500 is not Full HD. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released around the same time as the B500 are also not Full HD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech B500

Average Maximum Frame Rate

The Logitech B500 has a fairly average maximum frame rate (30 frames per second) compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released around the same time as the B500.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the V7 CS1330 which is cheaper.

If this Logitech webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (60fps).
