6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked 4,702 expert and user reviews for Logitech webcams and found that on average Logitech has excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Logitech has excellent ratings specifically within its low megapixel webcams range.

USB Powered

The Logitech B500 is USB powered, unlike most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago which are not USB powered.

There are a number of other USB powered webcams currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper webcams such as the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], or the Logitech C160[plb_327646_price].

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth looking at include the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price].

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech B500 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the B500.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think cheaper webcams such as the Genius FaceCam 1000X[plb_2585528_price], the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], and the Acme United CA11[plb_1832181_price] is also worth considering.

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 a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution. The worst video resolution of all webcams that are a comparable age to the B500 is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech B500 has a snapshot button, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the B500 do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams with a snapshot button currently available which you might also want to look at include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], the Logitech C160[plb_327646_price], or the Approx APPWC02[plb_464230_price] which is cheaper.
