USB Powered

The Logitech B500 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams of this spec and age which are not USB powered.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech B500 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the B500 also have a built-in microphone.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price], or the Media-Tech MT4040[plb_1754232_price] is also worth considering.

The worst video resolution of all webcams of this spec and age is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech B500 has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the B500 which do not have a snapshot button.
