Performance

Fairly High Megapixel

The Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD 1080 has a fairly high megapixel (8 megapixels) compared to most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as this webcam. The megapixels of webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as this webcam range from 0.3MP to 20MP, and the average megapixel is 2.5MP.

We compared all the other 8MP webcams to this webcam and we think the Logitech C510 (£49) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
