logitech webcam c160 review

4 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Logitech is one of the leading webcam manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Logitech also has excellent reviews for its low megapixel count webcams.

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other webcams that are a similar age to the C160 which are not USB powered, the Logitech C160 is USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the HP KQ245AA is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C160 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as the C160 also have a built-in microphone.

Unlike most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C160 which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech C160 has a snapshot button.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Logitech C160 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that were released around the same time as the C160 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is the most commonly found maximum video resolution on webcams of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of this type and age, the Logitech C160 does not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also feature face tracking including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatible

Most low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the C160 are not Mac compatible. The Logitech C160 is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

If you would prefer a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might want to look at the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most low megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C160 do not have a zoom capability. The Logitech C160 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the HP KQ245AA.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of this age and spec do not have a night mode. The Logitech C160 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90).

Not Full HD

Like most of the other webcams of this spec and age, the Logitech C160 is not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might be worth looking at include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD, or the Logitech TV Cam HD which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C160

Released Over Four Years Ago

This Logitech webcam has been on the market for over four years.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech C160 has a pretty typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C160.

We compared this webcam to all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams and we think the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (£36.92), and the Logitech Pro9000 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this low megapixel count webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps).
