6 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

Based on 4,708 owner and expert reviews, Logitech has excellent ratings for its webcams. Logitech also has excellent ratings specifically within its built-in microphone webcams range compared to other brands.

Has a Motion Detector

Unlike most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C170 which do not have a motion detector, the Logitech C170 has a motion detector.

Other webcams with a motion detector currently available which you might want to look at include the Logitech C615[plb_838859_price] which has better reviews.

Features Face Tracking

The Logitech C170 features face tracking, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of this type and age do not feature face tracking.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative webcams which feature face tracking currently available including the C310[pl_265576_price], or the C910[pl_377024_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly High Megapixel

The megapixels of webcams of a similar spec and age to the C170 range from 0.1MP to 20MP. With a megapixel of 5 megapixels, the Logitech C170 has a fairly high megapixel compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 5MP webcams currently available including the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema[plb_85750_price], or the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price] which has better reviews.

If this Logitech webcam megapixel is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Logitech C615[plb_838859_price] (8MP) which also has a higher rating.

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the C170 which are not USB powered, the Logitech C170 is USB powered.

We compared all the other USB powered webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech 3000[plb_961324_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Zoom Capability

Unlike most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the C170 which do not have a zoom capability, the Logitech C170 has a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech C170 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the worst video resolution amongst all built-in microphone webcams that have been available for more than two years.

Amongst comparable types of webcam the best video resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

Most webcams of a similar age and type to the C170 are not mac compatibility. The Logitech C170 is no exception to this as it too is not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the C910[pl_377024_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] both from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

Built-in microphone webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the C170 have maximum interpolated image resolutions of between 1.3MP and 30MP. The Logitech C170 has a quite low maximum interpolated image resolution (only 5 megapixels) compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C170.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Like most of the other webcams of this spec and age, the Logitech C170 does not have a snapshot button.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a snapshot button and we think the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the Logitech C170 is not full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C170 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the C170 also do not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Minimum RAM

At 512 megabytes, the Logitech C170 has a quite big minimum RAM compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the C170. The minimum RAMs of built-in microphone webcams that were released more than two years ago range from 32MB to 2.1GB, and the average minimum RAM is 560MB.
