Nice Design

One person thought the Logitech Broadcaster was a good design. Three years ago Tricia F. she wrote “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”.

Good Technical Features

One customer who purchased it thought it had good features.

Good Battery Life

One person who reviewed the Logitech Broadcaster thought it had a good battery life. Expert review site Trustednerd.com mentioned in their review of the Logitech Broadcaster “This 720P HD camera retails for around $199.00 and has a superb battery life offering a lot of amazing features”.

Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Mac Operating Systems Supported

The Broadcaster supports a Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks mac operating systems supported which is newer than most webcams of this spec and age. Most similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as it support a Mac OS X 10.7 Lion mac operating systems supported. In addition, this Logitech webcam supports a Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion mac operating systems supported.

A Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks mac operating systems supported is actually the best supported Mac operating systems support amongst all built-in microphone webcams that were released more than two years ago.

10 Reasons Against

Based on 7 owner reviews the average owner rating of this Logitech webcam is 60 out of 100. This puts this built-in microphone webcam in the bottom 10% of all the webcams of a similar age and spec when ranked by average owner review score.

Expensive

The cheapeast webcams of a comparable type and age that we found costs £3 and the most expensive costs £270. We think that this webcam looks expensive for a webcam that was released more than two years ago.
