Logitech C120 Webcam Review & Unboxing

7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Low megapixel count webcams manufactured by Logitech have excellent ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all webcams (not just low megapixel count webcams) and found that Logitech also has excellent ratings across its entire range.

Good Product Quality

Several Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that this webcam was good quality. B. A. Howard scored this webcam 5 stars and wrote on Amazon “High quality, sits nicely on top of my monitor”. B. A. Howard also wrote “Very high quality, including the microphone”. Vm wrote “What good quality of products do you get on this site?This isn't the first product of mine stopped working which was brought from this site” nonetheless they scored it 20 out of 100.

Nice Design

Two Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that the product was good looking. Cad said six years ago “No sound, pretty useless”. Cad also said “This webcam has no sound and was therefore pretty useless for its intended use with my laptop”.

Good Picture Quality

One Logitech C120 owner concluded that this webcam produced a sharp image. Deeeeejay said “If you want sharp pictures you should get a HD cam tho” but they only scored it 3 stars. One customer said in their reviews that it had a good refresh rate. Deeeeejay wrote on Amazon “The refresh rate is ok, definitely uninstall the software it uses” nonetheless they only gave the product a score of 60 out of 100.

Easy to Use

One Logitech C120 owner wrote in their reviews that this webcam was easy to use. Five years ago Sophie mentioned on Amazon “Perfect for my mum to use while I'm away! Thanks!”.

Mac Compatible

The Logitech C120 is Mac compatible. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago are not Mac compatible.

It may also be worth considering one of the other Mac compatible webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the A4Tech PK-635.

10 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, based on 24 user reviews the average user rating of this low megapixel count webcam is 64 out of 100. This puts this Logitech webcam in the bottom 22% of all the low megapixel count webcams that have been around for more than two years when ranked by average user review score.

Poor Sound Quality

A number of people who bought it considered that it did not have a good microphone. Cad rated it 20 out of 100 and wrote on Amazon “There is no mention in the product description of the lack of sound” in their Logitech C120 review.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C120

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech C120 has a pretty standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C120.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the Elite Webcam 2000, or the CS1330 both from V7 or the Logitech B500 which has better reviews.

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