7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Webcam Reviews

Based on 4,733 owner and expert reviews, Logitech has excellent ratings for its webcams. Logitech also has excellent ratings specifically within its low megapixel webcams range.

Good Connectivity

One Logitech C300 owner mentioned in their reviews that it had messaging. Expert review site Techsmart.co.za mentioned “You can use the Logitech with any one of the plethora of instant messaging (IM) services that the C300 supports including Skype” in their Logitech C300 review.

Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C300 is mac compatibility, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the C300 are not mac compatibility.

We compared this webcam to all the other mac compatibility webcams and we think the HP 2100 ($24.97) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth looking at include the A4Tech PK-635.

The highest video resolution of the Logitech C300 is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Across all low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for more than two years the video resolution ranges from 640 x 480 pixels (worst) to 1600 x 1200 pixels (best).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech Pro9000 .

The Logitech C300 does not have a night mode. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that came out around the same time as the C300 also do not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the PLCM19, or the PLCM21 both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1 is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C300

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C300 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams to this webcam and we think the Logitech Pro9000 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this low megapixel webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (60fps).
