8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Logitech medium megapixel count webcams have excellent reviews on average and across all webcams Logitech is one of the best brands.

USB Powered

The Logitech C270 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams of this type and age which are not USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

Unlike most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C270 which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech C270 has a snapshot button.

Other webcams with a snapshot button currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price], or the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price].
