6 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

Logitech has excellent average ratings for its low megapixel webcams as well as across its entire webcam range compared to other manufacturers.

USB Powered

The Logitech B500 is USB powered, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of this type and age are not USB powered.

Alternative USB powered webcams currently available that you might want to consider include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to look at the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price], or the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price].

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the Logitech B500 has a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including cheaper webcams such as the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], or the Acme United CA11[plb_1832181_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price].

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech B500 is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution. Webcams of a comparable age and spec to the B500 maximum video resolutions range from 640 x 480 pixels to 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

Unlike most of the other comparable spec webcams that were released around the same time as the B500 which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech B500 has a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available including the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], the Logitech C160[plb_327646_price], or the Approx APPWC02[plb_464230_price] which is cheaper.

Quite Long Cable Length

At 1.82 meters, the Logitech B500 has a fairly long cable length compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the B500. The shortest cable length of low megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago is 0.7m and the longest is 5.7m.

7 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £0.61

The price of the B500 has increased by £0.61 in the last 35 days.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B500 do not have a motion detector. The Logitech B500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech B500 does not feature face tracking, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the B500 also do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to look at including the Acme United CA11[plb_1832181_price] which is also cheaper.

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the B500, the Logitech B500 is not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price].

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B500 do not have a zoom capability. The Logitech B500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Genius FaceCam 1000X[plb_2585528_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for more than two years, the Logitech B500 does not have a night mode.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a night mode including the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which is also cheaper.

Not Full HD

The Logitech B500 is not full HD. Most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B500 are also not full HD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech B500

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Logitech webcam has been on the market for over three years.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech B500 has a relatively standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that were launched more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available which you might also want to consider including the Prestigio PWC213[plb_146279_price], the Logitech C160[plb_327646_price], or the Approx APPWC02[plb_464230_price] which is cheaper.

If this webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps) which is also cheaper.

USB Interface

This webcam has a USB interface, which is the most commonly found interface on webcams of a comparable age and spec to it.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams that have a USB interface and we think the Prestigio PWC213[plb_146279_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
