8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Low megapixel webcams produced by Logitech have excellent reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all webcams (not just low megapixel webcams) and found that Logitech also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Good Sound Quality

One Logitech B905 owner who reviewed it said that it had a good microphone.

Good Product Quality

One person who reviewed the product reckoned that it was good quality. Baggieman63 gave it a score of 5 stars and said in their review “Fantastic picture quality and great sound”.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the B905, the Logitech B905 has a built-in microphone.

Other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Logitech 960-000842-981-000094, the LogiLink UA0161, or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10.

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech B905 has a maximum video resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

This webcam's video resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best video resolution amongst all low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the B905.

Amongst similar types of webcam the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

Has a Snapshot Button

Unlike most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech B905 has a snapshot button.

There are a number of other webcams with a snapshot button currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the HP KQ245AA, the MSI StarCam Clip, or the V7 CS720A0.

Chart Edit

Very Small Minimum RAM

Across all the webcams of this type and age the minimum RAMs range from 32MB to 1.1GB. With a minimum RAM of only 128 megabytes, the Logitech B905 has a quite small minimum RAM compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the B905.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Logitech B905 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the B905 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Logitech B905 is not USB powered, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this type and age are also not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to look at the MT4040, or the MT4030K both from Mediatech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech B905 does not feature face tracking, although keep in mind that most of the other low megapixel webcams that are a comparable age to the B905 also do not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, the LogiLink WC0020, or the Thrustmaster Optical Glass which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

Most webcams of this age and type are not mac compatibility. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too is not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth considering include the LogiLink WC0020, the Logitech C300, or the A4Tech PK-635.

Quite Short Cable Length

The average cable length of low megapixel webcams that were launched around the same time as the B905 is 1.9m. At only 0.76 meters, the Logitech B905 has a quite short cable length compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the B905.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the B905, the Logitech B905 does not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, the HP KQ245AA, or the Samsung VG-STC2000 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other webcams of this age and spec, the Logitech B905 does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the PLCM19, or the PLCM21 both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1.

Not Full HD

Like most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the B905, the Logitech B905 is not full HD.

If you would prefer a webcam that is full HD then you might want to consider the Thrustmaster Link, the Logitech TV Cam HD ($300.00), or the Hama Digital Eye II PRO which is also higher rated.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech B905

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech B905 has a relatively typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the B905.

Alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Pyle PLCM19, the V7 Elite Webcam 2000, or the Logitech B500.

If this webcam maximum frame rate is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10 (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
