6 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

We checked 4,717 expert and owner reviews for Logitech webcams and found that on average Logitech has excellent ratings. We also found that Logitech has excellent ratings specifically for its webcams.

Nice Design

One Logitech 960-000856 owner thought this webcam was a good design. Two years ago Tricia F. said “Nice design, not much of a battery, install on the Mac made some unwanted changes, had to restore the system (a thing I NEVER had to do before”.

Mac Compatible

The Logitech 960-000856 is Mac compatible, unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the 960-000856 which are not Mac compatible.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative Mac compatible webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Genius FaceCam 320 (£8.87).

Has a Built-In Microphone

The 960-000856 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Media-Tech MT4023, the Eminent Ewent, or the T'nB PIXY350 which has better reviews.

1280 X 720 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is typical of many similar spec webcams that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The 960-000856 has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years which do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Logitech TV Cam, the Philips PTA317, and the Bluestork BS-CAM-100K-D which has better reviews is also worth considering.

11 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One Logitech 960-000856 owner who reviewed the Logitech 960-000856 thought it did not have a good microphone. Alan Crichton wrote in his review of this webcam on Amazon “Excellent except flimsy audio socket” however despite that he still rated it 4 stars.

Poor Connectivity

One Logitech 960-000856 reviewer concluded that this webcam was not wifi compatible. Surrey Purchaser wrote “As the battery runs out after a while you need to have it near a power source, so in practice it is not really "wireless” and gave this webcam a rating of 3 stars.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The 960-000856 does not have a motion detector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Logitech 960-000856 is not USB powered, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago are also not USB powered.

If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the Logitech C920, the Speed-Link Reflect, or the Bluestork BS-CAM-100K-D which is also higher rated.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams that have been available for more than two years, the 960-000856 does not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Logitech C920, the Speed-Link Reflect, or the Thrustmaster HD Emotion is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Wi-Fi Interface

The 960-000856 has a Wi-Fi interface which is better than the USB interface found on most webcams of a comparable type and age to it.

A Wi-Fi interface is actually the worst interface amongst all comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the 960-000856.

The best interface amongst comparable types of webcam is USB 2.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One Illumination LED

Most similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years have between one and seven illumination LEDs, including the Logitech 960-000856 which has one illumination LED.

Chart Edit

Not Full HD

Like most of the other webcams that were released around the same time as the 960-000856, the 960-000856 is not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might also be worth considering include the C920, or the TV Cam both from Logitech or the HP HD-4110 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The 960-000856 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age also do not have a night mode.

Alternative webcams which also have a night mode that you might also want to look at include the Pyle PLCM10, the Speed-Link Reflect, or the LogiLink WC0022 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most webcams that came out more than two years ago do not have a snapshot button. The 960-000856 is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to look at include the Speed-Link Reflect, the Bluestork BS-CAM-100K-D, or the T'nB PIXY350 which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Webcams of this age and spec have digital zoom of between 3x and 10x, and the average digital zoom is 4.5x. At only 3 times zoom factor, the 960-000856 has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the 960-000856.

This is a great idea, which seems only to have one function, to stream through ustream. It would not even work with its own application, let alone through a trivial app like Skype, And with... Read more…

After using the broadcaster only three times the audio socket disconected from the main board and needed resoldering
