7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

Logitech has excellent average ratings for its low megapixel count webcams as well as across its entire webcam range.

Good Connectivity

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it had messaging. Techsmart.co.za mentioned “You can use the Logitech with any one of the plethora of instant messaging (IM) services that the C300 supports including Skype”.

USB Powered

The Logitech C300 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C300 which are not USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech 3000[plb_961324_price], and the MSI StarCam Clip[plb_637711_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for more than two years, the Logitech C300 has a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech C300 is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The worst video resolution of all low megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C300 is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C300 has a snapshot button, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of this age and type do not have a snapshot button.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Cable Length

The Logitech C300 has a quite long cable length (2 meters) compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the C300. Across all the similar spec webcams that were released more than two years ago the cable lengths range from 0.76m to 5.7m, and the average cable length is 1.9m.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Logitech C300 does not have a motion detector, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the C300 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech C300 does not feature face tracking, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

Most low megapixel count webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the C300 are not Mac compatible. The Logitech C300 is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

If you are looking for a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to look at the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most similar spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago do not have a zoom capability. The Logitech C300 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability which you might want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C300 does not have a night mode, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C300 also do not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Logitech C300 is not Full HD. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age are also not Full HD.

If you want a webcam that is Full HD then you might want to consider the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which is also higher rated.

Fairly Big Minimum RAM

The smallest minimum RAM of webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C300 is 32MB and the biggest is 1.1GB. With a minimum RAM of 512 megabytes, the Logitech C300 has one of the bigger minimum RAM amongst low megapixel count webcams of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C300

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech C300 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the C300.

If this low megapixel count webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps).

Released Over Six Years Ago

Logitech released the C300 over six years ago.

USB Interface

There are a number of alternative webcams that have a USB interface currently available which you might want to look at including the Logitech C200[plb_446162_price] which has better reviews.
