5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked 4,733 owner and expert reviews for Logitech webcams and found that on average Logitech has excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Logitech has excellent ratings specifically for its low megapixel webcams.

USB Powered

The Logitech C500 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the C500 which are not USB powered.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other USB powered webcams currently available including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech C500 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution. Across all webcams of this spec and age the video resolution ranges from 640 x 480 pixels to 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C500 has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C500 which do not have a snapshot button.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available including the Logitech Pro9000 which has better reviews.

6 Reasons Against

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the C500, the Logitech C500 is not mac compatibility.

If you would prefer a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to look at the A4Tech PK-635.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Logitech C500 does not have a zoom capability, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the C500 also do not have a zoom capability.

Other webcams which also have a zoom capability that you might want to consider include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the C500, the Logitech C500 does 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.

Not Full HD

Most webcams of this type and age are not full HD. The Logitech C500 is no exception to this as it too is not full HD.

If you are looking for a webcam that is full HD then you might also want to consider the Logitech TV Cam HD ($300.00) which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C500

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C500 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the Logitech Pro9000 which has better reviews.

If this webcam maximum frame rate is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (60fps).
