Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

On average Logitech webcams have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all webcams built by Logitech.

Has a Motion Detector

The Logitech C170 has a motion detector, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago which do not have a motion detector.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Logitech released the C170.

Features Face Tracking

The Logitech C170 features face tracking, unlike most of the other webcams that are a similar age to the C170 which do not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams which feature face tracking currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000.

Quite High Megapixel

The megapixels of webcams of a comparable age and type to the C170 range from 0.1MP to 20MP. With a megapixel of 5 megapixels, the Logitech C170 has one of the higher megapixels amongst similar spec webcams of this age.

We compared this webcam to all the other 5MP webcams and we think the Logitech B910 HD which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a higher megapixel then you might want to look at the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD 1080 (8MP) which is also higher rated.
