5 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

Based on 4,717 expert and user reviews, Logitech has excellent ratings for its webcams. Logitech also has excellent ratings specifically within its low megapixel count webcams range.

USB Powered

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech C500 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of the most frequently found maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Across all comparable spec webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C500 the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C500 has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago which do not have a snapshot button.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Logitech C500 does not have a motion detector, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C500 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech C500 does not feature face tracking. Most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago also do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might also want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02) which is also higher rated.

Not Mac Compatible

The Logitech C500 is not Mac compatible. Most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C500 are also not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth looking at include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Logitech C500 does not have a zoom capability, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the C500 also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02), or the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of a similar spec and age to the C500 do not have a night mode. The Logitech C500 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

The Logitech C500 is not Full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C500 are also not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might be worth considering include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD, or the Logitech TV Cam HD (£188.08) which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C500

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C500 has a relatively average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the C500.

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 webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps).

Released Over Seven Years Ago

Logitech released the C500 over seven years ago.
