4 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

Built-in microphone webcams built by Logitech have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all webcams (not just built-in microphone webcams) and found that Logitech also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Nice Design

One Logitech 960-000856 owner thought this webcam was a good design. Two years ago Tricia F. said “Nice design, not much of a battery, install on the Mac made some unwanted changes, had to restore the system (a thing I NEVER had to do before”.

Mac Compatibility

The 960-000856 is mac compatibility, which is unusual. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that were released more than two years ago are not mac compatibility.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative mac compatibility webcams currently available including the C910[pl_377024_price], or the C300[pl_446165_price] both from Logitech which has better reviews.

Has a Zoom Capability

The Logitech 960-000856 has a zoom capability. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that are a comparable age to the 960-000856 do not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams with a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Zalman ZM-PC100[plb_3076718_price], and the Advent AWC213[plb_2665931_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One Logitech 960-000856 owner who reviewed the Logitech 960-000856 thought it did not have a good microphone. Alan Crichton wrote in his review of this webcam on Amazon “Excellent except flimsy audio socket” however despite that he still rated it 4 stars.

Poor Connectivity

One Logitech 960-000856 reviewer concluded that this webcam was not wifi compatible. Surrey Purchaser wrote “As the battery runs out after a while you need to have it near a power source, so in practice it is not really "wireless” and gave this webcam a rating of 3 stars.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The 960-000856 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the 960-000856 also do not have a motion detector.

It is worth also looking at other webcams which also have a motion detector including the C270[pl_37101_price], the C170[pl_824911_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] all from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Not USB Powered

The Logitech 960-000856 is not USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the 960-000856 are also not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to look at the C270[pl_37101_price], or the C170[pl_824911_price] both from Logitech or the Cisco PrecisionHD[plb_1506318_price].

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most built-in microphone webcams that have been around for around the same time as the 960-000856 do not feature face tracking. The 960-000856 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

Other webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to consider include the C310[pl_265576_price], or the C910[pl_377024_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Built-in microphone webcams that have been available for more than two years have digital zooms of between 2x and 10x. The Logitech 960-000856 has a quite small digital zoom (only 3 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other built-in microphone webcams that are a comparable age to the 960-000856.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most webcams that were released more than two years ago do not have a snapshot button. The 960-000856 is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the C250[pl_101761_price], or the B905[pl_546303_price] both from Logitech or the Approx APPWC03HD[plb_2432073_price].

Not Full HD

Most comparable spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the 960-000856 are not full HD. The Logitech 960-000856 is no exception to this as it too is not full HD.

Webcams which are full HD that might be worth looking at include the Genius FaceCam 2020[plb_2797352_price], the Cisco PrecisionHD[plb_1506318_price], or the Rocksoul WK-106[plb_1988641_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that are a similar age to the 960-000856, the 960-000856 does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the LogiLink WC0022[plb_1373408_price], the Tenda C30[plb_2035291_price], or the T'nB NIGHTY480[plb_2164931_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

After using the broadcaster only three times the audio socket disconected from the main board and needed resoldering
