8 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

Medium megapixel webcams produced by Logitech have excellent reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all webcams (not just medium megapixel webcams) and found that Logitech also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Has a Motion Detector

The Logitech C525 has a motion detector, unlike most of the other medium megapixel webcams that came out more than two years ago which do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Features Face Tracking

Unlike most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the C525 which do not feature face tracking, the Logitech C525 features face tracking.

Chart Edit

USB Powered

The Logitech C525 is USB powered, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the C525 are not USB powered.

It may also be worth considering one of the other USB powered webcams currently available including the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema ($43.99), the Logitech C510, or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C525 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other medium megapixel webcams that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema ($43.99), the Logitech C510, and the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD which has better reviews is also worth considering.

USB Interface

This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is the most commonly found interface on comparable spec webcams that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The Logitech C525 has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the C525 which do not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams with a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema ($43.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

The minimum hard disk spaces of webcams of a similar age and type to the C525 range from 200MB to 1.5GB. The Logitech C525 has one of the smaller minimum hard disk spaces (only 200 megabytes) amongst similar spec webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C525 is not mac compatibility. Most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago are also not mac compatibility.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Logitech C525 is not full HD. Most of the other medium megapixel webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the C525 are also not full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C525 does not have a snapshot button, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C525 also do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might want to consider include the Logitech C510, or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C525 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C525 also do not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

It was over four years ago when Logitech released the C525.
