Logitech C120 Webcam Review & Unboxing

9 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

On average Logitech built-in microphone webcams have excellent ratings as do all webcams built by Logitech.

Reasonably Priced

A number of Logitech C120 reviewers wrote in their reviews that this webcam was good value for money. Miss Kirsty Smitheram she wrote on Amazon five years ago “Good value for money”. Robert Macmillan wrote in his review of this webcam also five years ago “Great value for money and great picture, no microphone”. Scott mentioned in his review of the Logitech C120 six years ago “Save your money and buy something for double the price with a different brand, Im betting you will see a big difference” but in spite of that he only rated this webcam 2 stars.

Good Product Quality

Several Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that this webcam was good quality. B. A. Howard scored this webcam 5 stars and wrote on Amazon “High quality, sits nicely on top of my monitor”. B. A. Howard also wrote “Very high quality, including the microphone”. Vm wrote “What good quality of products do you get on this site?This isn't the first product of mine stopped working which was brought from this site” nonetheless they scored it 20 out of 100.

Nice Design

Two Logitech C120 owners said in their reviews that the product was good looking. Cad said six years ago “No sound, pretty useless”. Cad also said “This webcam has no sound and was therefore pretty useless for its intended use with my laptop”.

Good Picture Quality

One Logitech C120 owner concluded that this webcam produced a sharp image. Deeeeejay said “If you want sharp pictures you should get a HD cam tho” but they only scored it 3 stars. One customer said in their reviews that it had a good refresh rate. Deeeeejay wrote on Amazon “The refresh rate is ok, definitely uninstall the software it uses” nonetheless they only gave the product a score of 60 out of 100.

Easy to Use

One Logitech C120 owner wrote in their reviews that this webcam was easy to use. Five years ago Sophie mentioned on Amazon “Perfect for my mum to use while I'm away! Thanks!”.

Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C120 is mac compatibility, unlike most of the other built-in microphone webcams that came out more than two years ago which are not mac compatibility.

Alternative mac compatibility webcams currently available which you might want to consider include the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] which has better reviews.

USB Powered

The Logitech C120 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the C120 are not USB powered.

We compared all the other USB powered webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Gembird A4-GWJ-800[plb_473274_price], the Mediatech MT4023[plb_1916641_price], and the Hercules HD Twist[plb_365539_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Long Cable Length

Webcams of a similar type and age to the C120 have cable lengths of between 0.7m and 3.4m. With a cable length of 1.829 meters, the Logitech C120's cable length is one of the longest amongst webcams that came out around the same time as the C120.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Poor

Owners have rated this Logitech webcam on average 64%. If all the webcams of a similar age and type are ranked by average user review score then this webcam is in the bottom 13%.

Poor Sound Quality

A number of people who bought it considered that it did not have a good microphone. Cad rated it 20 out of 100 and wrote on Amazon “There is no mention in the product description of the lack of sound” in their Logitech C120 review.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most built-in microphone webcams that were launched more than two years ago do not have a motion detector. The Logitech C120 is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech C120 is 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the worst video resolution amongst all webcams of a similar type and age to the C120.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum video resolution is the best video resolution across comparable types of webcam.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years do not feature face tracking. The Logitech C120 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 consider include the Atlantis Land MagicView 985 HD[plb_2466391_price], the HP GX607AA[plb_1498315_price], or the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the C120, the Logitech C120 does not have a zoom capability.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the HP GX607AA[plb_1498315_price], or the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C120 does not have a snapshot button, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not have a snapshot button.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to look at including the Konig CMP-WEBCAM95WH[plb_1343175_price], the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price], or the Logitech C600[plb_497439_price].

Webcams which are full HD that might be worth looking at include the Hercules HD Twist[plb_365539_price] which also has a higher rating.
