7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

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

Good Connectivity

One Logitech C300 owner who purchased this webcam reckoned that it had messaging. Techsmart.co.za said “You can use the Logitech with any one of the plethora of instant messaging (IM) services that the C300 supports including Skype”.

Mac Compatible

The Logitech C300 is Mac compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C300 are not Mac compatible.

We compared all the other Mac compatible webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] is also worth considering.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth looking at include the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price].

USB Powered

The Logitech C300 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C300 which are not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C300 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other similar spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the C300 also have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech C300 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution. Across all webcams of this spec and age the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

Unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C300 which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech C300 has a snapshot button.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a snapshot button and we think the C250[pl_101761_price], and the C600[pl_497439_price] both from Logitech which has better reviews is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a motion detector. The Logitech C300 is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the C300 do not feature face tracking. The Logitech C300 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C300

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C300 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the C300.

We compared all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the LifeCam Cinema[pl_85750_price], and the LifeCam HD-5000[pl_703784_price] both from Microsoft is also worth considering.

Webcams with a higher maximum frame rate that might also be worth considering include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps).
