9 Reasons For for Choosing the Logitech C270

Built-in Microphone

The Logitech C270 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100 and the HP Webcam 2100, whereas the Pyle PLCM38FRV does not. More ...

A webcam with built-in microphone allows you to record sound and video at the same time.

A built-in microphone is essential when using the webcam for video calls and you will not need to attach an external microphone to your computer or laptop. If you want to use a webcam to record images only, a built-in microphone is not required.

Higher Megapixel

The Logitech C270 is a 3MP webcam. That's 1MP higher than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync (2MP) and 2.7MP higher than the Pyle PLCM38FRV (0.3MP). More ...

The resolution of the image a webcam records is measured in megapixels. A webcam with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels records 1,310,720 pixels or roughly 1.3 megapixels.

A higher number of megapixels means the webcam is able to record finer detail. The resolution of the image is, however, not the only factor which contributes to the overall image and video quality of the webcam.

Zoom Capability

The Logitech C270 has a zoom capability, however the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV do not have this feature. More ...

'Zoom Capability' denotes whether the webcam has the ability to zoom in on distant subjects.

A zoom capability makes the webcam more versatile, allowing perfect framing when you use it for video chatting, and allow you to enlarge distant objects on the video.

Photo Feature

The Logitech C270 has a photo feature, whereas the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV do not have this feature. More ...

'Photo features' covers a number of different effects and filters that can be added to still photos taken with the webcam.

Photo features allow you to do more with the photos and snapshots from your webcam, and personalise them however you want.

Noise Reduction

The Logitech C270 supports noise reduction, however the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV do not. More ...

Noise reduction means that the microphone on the webcam is designed to filter out unwanted noise (such as cars, wind noise, background chatter, etc) to make hearing easier.

Better Kagoo Score

The Logitech C270 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync scored only 68, the Digital Innovations 4310100 scored only 73, the HP Webcam 2100 scored 78 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV scored 76.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this webcam.

Hugely Better User Reviews

Based on 187 reviews, the Logitech C270 has an average user review score of 89%, but the Digital Innovations 4310100 has an average rating of 40% (based on 3 reviews).

Better Brand

Logitech webcams have an average rating of 95%, however Creative Labs only has an average rating of 71.8%, Digital Innovations only has an average rating of 58%, HP only has an average rating of 74.8% and Pyle only has an average rating of 78.7%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Logitech C270

Lower Video Resolution

The Logitech C270 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, but the HP Webcam 2100 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Logitech C270 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Digital Innovations 4310100 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV), but the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync and the HP Webcam 2100 do. More ...

A built-in flash means that the webcam comes with a flash device built in, rather than having to rely on external lighting.

A built-in flash can be very helpful for taking photos in low light conditions using the webcam.

Older by Eight Months

The Logitech C270 is eight months older than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync and seven months older than the HP Webcam 2100.

The cheapest price that we could find for the C270 in the US is $16.99 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the HP Webcam 2100

Built-in Microphone

The HP Webcam 2100 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100 and the Logitech C270, however the Pyle PLCM38FRV does not. More ...

A webcam with built-in microphone allows you to record sound and video at the same time.

A built-in microphone is essential when using the webcam for video calls and you will not need to attach an external microphone to your computer or laptop. If you want to use a webcam to record images only, a built-in microphone is not required.

Higher Video Resolution

The HP Webcam 2100 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels pixels, which is 3 times the video resolution of the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync (800 x 600 pixels) and 4 times the video resolution of the Digital Innovations 4310100 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV (640 x 480 pixels). More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP Webcam 2100

Worse Kagoo Score

More Expensive by $5

The HP Webcam 2100 is $5 more expensive than the Digital Innovations 4310100 and $4 more expensive than the Pyle PLCM38FRV.

Fewer Sellers

The HP Webcam 2100 is only stocked by 1 store, but the Logitech C270 is stocked by 8 stores and the Pyle PLCM38FRV is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by One Month

The HP Webcam 2100 is one month older than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync.

Worse Brand

HP webcams have an average rating of only 74.8%, but Logitech has an average rating of 95% and Pyle has an average rating of 78.7%.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Pyle PLCM38FRV

Night Mode

The Pyle PLCM38FRV has a night mode, however the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Logitech C270 do not have this feature. More ...

Night mode is a special setting to allow the webcam to produce better video quality when in low-light conditions.

This is helpful if you frequently use your webcam at night, or your room tends to get quite dark - you'll find the video quality greatly improved.

A Lot Deeper Colour Depth

The Pyle PLCM38FRV has a colour depth of 24 bit, but the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync is only an 8 Bit colour depth webcam (16 bit shallower). More ...

'Colour depth' refers to how rich and 'deep' the colours displayed through the webcam are.

A deeper colour depth means darker and richer black and dark colours, leading to a vastly superior image quality.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pyle PLCM38FRV

Does Not Have a Built-in Microphone

The Pyle PLCM38FRV does not have a built-in microphone, whereas the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Logitech C270 have this feature. More ...

A webcam with built-in microphone allows you to record sound and video at the same time.

A built-in microphone is essential when using the webcam for video calls and you will not need to attach an external microphone to your computer or laptop. If you want to use a webcam to record images only, a built-in microphone is not required.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Pyle PLCM38FRV has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so is the Digital Innovations 4310100, which is half the video resolution of the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync (800 x 600 pixels), 4 times lower video resolution of the HP Webcam 2100 (1280 x 1024 pixels) and 3 times lower video resolution of the Logitech C270 (1280 x 720 pixels). More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Lower Megapixel

The Pyle PLCM38FRV is a 0.3MP webcam. That's 1.7MP lower than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync (2MP) and 2.7MP lower than the Logitech C270 (3MP). More ...

The resolution of the image a webcam records is measured in megapixels. A webcam with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels records 1,310,720 pixels or roughly 1.3 megapixels.

A higher number of megapixels means the webcam is able to record finer detail. The resolution of the image is, however, not the only factor which contributes to the overall image and video quality of the webcam.

Does Not Have a Photo Feature

The Pyle PLCM38FRV does not have a photo feature, whereas the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the Digital Innovations 4310100, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Logitech C270 do. More ...

'Photo features' covers a number of different effects and filters that can be added to still photos taken with the webcam.

A built-in flash can be very helpful for taking photos in low light conditions using the webcam.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pyle PLCM38FRV has received a Kagoo Score of 76, however the HP Webcam 2100 scored 78 and the Logitech C270 scored 85.

Less Retailers

The Pyle PLCM38FRV is only stocked by 3 stores, whereas the Logitech C270 is stocked by 8 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this webcam remaining in stock.
Older by Over Five Years

The Pyle PLCM38FRV is five years older than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, two years older than the Digital Innovations 4310100, five years older than the HP Webcam 2100 and four years older than the Logitech C270.

Worse Brand

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Digital Innovations 4310100

Built-in Microphone

The Digital Innovations 4310100 has a built-in microphone (as do the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync, the HP Webcam 2100 and the Logitech C270), whereas the Pyle PLCM38FRV does not have this feature. More ...

A webcam with built-in microphone allows you to record sound and video at the same time.

A built-in microphone is essential when using the webcam for video calls and you will not need to attach an external microphone to your computer or laptop. If you want to use a webcam to record images only, a built-in microphone is not required.

$5 Cheaper

The Digital Innovations 4310100 costs $14.99, whereas the HP Webcam 2100 is $19.99.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Digital Innovations 4310100

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Digital Innovations 4310100 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as is the Pyle PLCM38FRV), but the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync has a maximum video resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, the HP Webcam 2100 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and the Logitech C270 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Digital Innovations 4310100 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Logitech C270 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV), but the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync and the HP Webcam 2100 have this feature. More ...

A built-in flash means that the webcam comes with a flash device built in, rather than having to rely on external lighting.

A built-in flash can be very helpful for taking photos in low light conditions using the webcam.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Digital Innovations 4310100 has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, but the HP Webcam 2100 scored 78, the Logitech C270 scored 85 and the Pyle PLCM38FRV scored 76.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the Digital Innovations 4310100, however 8 sellers sell the Logitech C270 and 3 retailers sell the Pyle PLCM38FRV. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this webcam remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Three Years Older

The Digital Innovations 4310100 is older than the Creative Labs Creative Live! Cam Sync by three years, older than the HP Webcam 2100 by three years and older than the Logitech C270 by two years.

Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Digital Innovations 4310100 only has an average user rating of 40%, but the Logitech C270 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 187 reviews).
