7 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Logitech webcams and also specifically for Logitech built-in microphone webcams and found that in both cases Logitech had excellent reviews.

Reasonably Priced

One person reckoned that the product was good value for money. Baggieman63 wrote on Amazon “Definitely value for money” in their review of the Logitech B905 and rated the product as excellent.

Good Sound Quality

One Logitech B905 owner who reviewed it said that it had a good microphone.

Good Product Quality

One person who reviewed the product reckoned that it was good quality. Baggieman63 gave it a score of 5 stars and said in their review “Fantastic picture quality and great sound”.

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech B905 is 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over two times the video resolution of the most frequently found maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The worst video resolution of all webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B905 is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech B905 has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the B905 which do not have a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available including the C250, or the Pro9000 both from Logitech or the Approx APPWC03HD which has better reviews.

Very Small Minimum RAM

With a minimum RAM of only 128 megabytes, the Logitech B905 has a quite small minimum RAM compared to most of the other webcams of this spec and age. The average minimum RAM of webcams that are a comparable age to the B905 is 560MB.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams of this age and spec do not have a motion detector. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Other webcams which also have a motion detector that you might also want to consider include the C270, the C170, or the C615 all from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Not USB Powered

Like most of the other webcams of this type and age, the Logitech B905 is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth considering include the C270, or the C170 both from Logitech or the Cisco PrecisionHD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams of a comparable type and age to the B905 do not feature face tracking. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

Alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to look at include the C310, or the C910 both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other webcams of this age and spec, the Logitech B905 is not mac compatibility.

If you would prefer a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might want to look at the C910, the C300, or the C615 all from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Short Cable Length

The average cable length of similar spec webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the B905 is 1.5m. At only 0.76 meters, the Logitech B905 has a fairly short cable length compared to most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Logitech B905 does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for around the same time as the B905 also do not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Zalman ZM-PC100, the Logitech CC3000e, or the iMicro CAM-IMC626 which also has a higher rating.

Not Full HD

Most webcams of this age and type are not full HD. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too is not full HD.

Webcams which are full HD that might be worth considering include the Genius FaceCam 2020, the Fujitsu S26391-F7136-L7, or the Rocksoul WK-106 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech B905 does not have a night mode. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B905 also do not have a night mode.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a night mode which you might also want to look at including the LogiLink WC0022, the Tenda C30, or the T'nB NIGHTY480 which is also higher rated.

Average Megapixel

The Logitech B905 has a fairly average megapixel (2 megapixels) compared to most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the B905.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 2MP webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Pro9000 , or the C600 (£16.23) both from Logitech.
