logitech webcam c160 review

4 Reasons For

Logitech Webcams Have Excellent Reviews

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

USB Powered

The Logitech C160 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams that came out around the same time as the C160 which are not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth looking at include the Microsoft LifeCam VX-800[plb_473212_price], the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], or the Logitech B500[plb_546296_price].

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that are a comparable age to the C160, the Logitech C160 has a built-in microphone.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including cheaper webcams such as the APPWC02[pl_464230_price], or the APPWC02W[pl_464235_price] both from Approx.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam VX-800[plb_473212_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C160 has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years which do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams with a snapshot button currently available which you might want to look at include the APPWC02[pl_464230_price], or the APPWC02W[pl_464235_price] both from Approx which is cheaper.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to look at include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price].

Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is typical of many webcams of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech C160 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth noting that most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago also do not feature face tracking.

It is worth also looking at other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price].

Most low megapixel webcams that came out more than two years ago do not have a night mode. The Logitech C160 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C160

Released Over Five Years Ago

This low megapixel webcam has been on the market for over five years.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech C160 has a relatively average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the C160.

We compared this webcam to all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams and we think the APPWC02[pl_464230_price], and the APPWC02W[pl_464235_price] both from Approx which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this webcam maximum frame rate is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which is also cheaper.
