Logitech C120 Webcam Review & Unboxing

8 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

Low megapixel webcams built 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 Product Quality

Several Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that this webcam was good quality. B. A. Howard scored this webcam 5 stars and wrote on Amazon “High quality, sits nicely on top of my monitor”. B. A. Howard also wrote “Very high quality, including the microphone”. Vm wrote “What good quality of products do you get on this site?This isn't the first product of mine stopped working which was brought from this site” nonetheless they scored it 20 out of 100.

Nice Design

Two Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that the product was good looking. Cad said six years ago “No sound, pretty useless”. Cad also said “This webcam has no sound and was therefore pretty useless for its intended use with my laptop”.

Good Picture Quality

One Logitech C120 owner concluded that this webcam produced a sharp image. Deeeeejay said “If you want sharp pictures you should get a HD cam tho” but they only scored it 3 stars. One customer said in their reviews that it had a good refresh rate. Deeeeejay wrote on Amazon “The refresh rate is ok, definitely uninstall the software it uses” nonetheless they only gave the product a score of 60 out of 100.

Easy to Use

One Logitech C120 owner wrote in their reviews that this webcam was easy to use. Five years ago Sophie mentioned on Amazon “Perfect for my mum to use while I'm away! Thanks!”.

Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C120 is mac compatibility, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that were launched more than two years ago are not mac compatibility.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other mac compatibility webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price].
