6 Reasons For for Choosing the Logitech C160M

1MP Higher Megapixel

The Logitech C160M has a megapixel of 1.3MP, whereas the Genius FACECAM1000X is only a 1MP webcam (0.3MP lower) and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 is only a 0.3MP webcam (1MP lower). 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.

Snapshot Button

The Logitech C160M has a snapshot button, but the Genius FACECAM1000X, the HP HD2200, the Sony PlayStation Eye and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 do not. More ...

'Snapshot Button' denotes whether the webcam has a special button on the device for taking still photos.

This is helpful because it allows you to use the webcam as an impromptu camera, and you won't have to mess around with external software to take photos using it.

Photo Feature

The Logitech C160M has a photo feature, and so do the Genius FACECAM1000X, the HP HD2200 and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300, but the Sony PlayStation Eye does not. 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Logitech C160M has an image stabilizer, but the Genius FACECAM1000X, the HP HD2200, the Sony PlayStation Eye and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 do not. More ...

An image stabilizer system allows the webcam to always show a centred, stable image, even when there is a lot of movement.

Better Kagoo Score

The Logitech C160M has received a Kagoo Score of 81, however the Genius FACECAM1000X scored 80, the HP HD2200 scored 79, the Sony PlayStation Eye scored 79 and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 scored 80.

Better Brand

Logitech webcams have an average rating of 95%, whereas Genius only has an average rating of 66.4%, HP only has an average rating of 78.6%, Sony only has an average rating of 63.5% and V7 only has an average rating of 63.2%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Logitech C160M

3 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Logitech C160M has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as are the Sony PlayStation Eye and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300), however the Genius FACECAM1000X and the HP HD2200 have 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum Frame Rate

The Logitech C160M has a maximum frame rate of 30fps (as do the Genius FACECAM1000X, the HP HD2200 and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300), however the Sony PlayStation Eye is a 120fps maximum frame rate webcam (90fps higher). More ...

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

Over Two Years Older

The Logitech C160M is older than the Genius FACECAM1000X by two years, older than the HP HD2200 by four months and older than the Sony PlayStation Eye by two months.

The cheapest price that we could find for the C160M in the US is $9.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

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.

Zoom Capability

The Genius FACECAM1000X has a zoom capability, and so does the Sony PlayStation Eye, however the HP HD2200, the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 do not. 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 Genius FACECAM1000X has a photo feature, and so do the HP HD2200, the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300, whereas the Sony PlayStation Eye does not. 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.

Two Years Newer

The Genius FACECAM1000X was released seven years ago, but the HP HD2200 was released nine years ago, the Logitech C160M was released nine years ago, the Sony PlayStation Eye was released nine years ago and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 was released 10 years ago

User Reviews Are Slightly Better

The average user review score of the Genius FACECAM1000X is 78% based on 10 reviews, but the average rating of the HP HD2200 is 70% (based on 4 reviews) and the average rating of the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 is 77% (based on 41 reviews).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Genius FACECAM1000X

24% Lower Megapixel

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.

90fps Lower Maximum Frame Rate

The Genius FACECAM1000X has a maximum frame rate of 30fps (as do the HP HD2200, the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300), but the Sony PlayStation Eye is a 120fps maximum frame rate webcam (90fps higher). More ...

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

2x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Genius FACECAM1000X has a digital zoom of 3x, whereas the HP HD2200 is a 5x digital zoom webcam (2x bigger). More ...

'Digital Zoom' denotes how far the webcam can zoom in using software to enhance and enlarge the image.

A bigger digital zoom means that the webcam will be able to enlarge the image further.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Genius FACECAM1000X does not have a built-in flash (As do the the HP HD2200 and the Sony PlayStation Eye), but the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 have this feature. More ...

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Genius FACECAM1000X has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Logitech C160M scored 81.

$5 More Expensive

The Genius FACECAM1000X is more expensive than the Logitech C160M by $5 and more expensive than the Sony PlayStation Eye by $5.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the HP HD2200

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The HP HD2200 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Genius FACECAM1000X), but the Logitech C160M, the Sony PlayStation Eye and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 have a maximum video resolution of 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.

Face Tracking

The HP HD2200 features face tracking, however the Genius FACECAM1000X, the Logitech C160M, the Sony PlayStation Eye and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 do not feature this benefit. More ...

A webcam with face tracking will reframe to follow the face of the subject as they move around. This may be done by physical movement (panning and/or tilting the camera) or by digitally cropping and enlarging a portion of the wide angle image.

Face tracking ensures your face will stay in the frame even when you move around.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The HP HD2200 has a digital zoom of 5x, whereas the Genius FACECAM1000X is only a 3x digital zoom webcam (2x smaller). More ...

'Digital Zoom' denotes how far the webcam can zoom in using software to enhance and enlarge the image.

A bigger digital zoom means that the webcam will be able to enlarge the image further.

Photo Feature

'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.

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony PlayStation Eye

A Lot Higher Maximum Frame Rate

The Sony PlayStation Eye has a maximum frame rate of 120fps, whereas the Genius FACECAM1000X, the HP HD2200, the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 are all only 30fps maximum frame rate webcams (90fps lower). More ...

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

Zoom Capability

The Sony PlayStation Eye has a zoom capability, and so does the Genius FACECAM1000X, but the HP HD2200, the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 do not. 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.

$5 Cheaper

The Sony PlayStation Eye is $5.21 cheaper than the Genius FACECAM1000X, $6.16 cheaper than the HP HD2200 and $10.20 cheaper than the V7 Vantage Webcam 300.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony PlayStation Eye

Lower Video Resolution

The Sony PlayStation Eye has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as are the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300), whereas the Genius FACECAM1000X and the HP HD2200 have 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 Sony PlayStation Eye does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Genius FACECAM1000X and the HP HD2200), whereas the Logitech C160M and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 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 Sony PlayStation Eye has received a Kagoo Score of 79, whereas the Genius FACECAM1000X scored 80, the Logitech C160M scored 81 and the V7 Vantage Webcam 300 scored 80.

Over Two Years Older

The Sony PlayStation Eye is older than the Genius FACECAM1000X by two years and older than the HP HD2200 by two months.

Worse Brand

Sony webcams have an average rating of only 63.5%, but Genius has an average rating of 66.4%, HP has an average rating of 78.6% and Logitech has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PlayStation Eye in the US is $9.79 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
