Chart Edit

Features Face Tracking

USB Powered

The Logitech C170 is USB powered, unlike most of the other comparable spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago which are not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C170 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the C170 also have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

USB Interface

Chart Edit

Unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C170 which do not have a zoom capability, the Logitech C170 has a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Very Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

With a minimum hard disk space of only 200 megabytes, the Logitech C170 has one of the smaller minimum hard disk spaces amongst medium megapixel webcams of this age. The minimum hard disk spaces of medium megapixel webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the C170 range from 200MB to 1.5GB, and the average minimum hard disk space is 410MB.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C170 is not mac compatibility, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium megapixel webcams that are a comparable age to the C170 are also not mac compatibility.

If you want a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to look at the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech C170 is 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

This webcam's video resolution (640 x 480 pixels) is actually the worst video resolution across all medium megapixel webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C170.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum video resolution is the best video resolution across comparable types of webcam.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C170 does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the C170 also do not have a snapshot button.

It is worth also looking at other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Logitech C310, or the HP HD 3110 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Logitech C170 is not full HD. Most of the other similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the C170 are also not full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C170 does not have a night mode. Most of the other medium megapixel webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C170 also do not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack.
