8 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This Logitech webcam received an expert rating of 70% from itespresso.es.

User Reviews Are Excellent

On average, based on 71 user reviews the average user rating of this webcam is brilliant. This means that users think this low megapixel webcam is one of the better webcams of a similar spec and age.

Logitech Has Excellent Webcam Reviews

We checked 4,733 owner and expert reviews for Logitech webcams and found that on average Logitech has excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Logitech has excellent ratings specifically within its low megapixel webcams range.

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago which are not USB powered, the Logitech C250 is USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think the Pro9000 [pl_546300_price], and the 3000[pl_961324_price] both from Logitech which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C250 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the C250 also have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C250 has a snapshot button, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the C250 do not have a snapshot button.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech Pro9000 [plb_546300_price], or the MSI StarCam Clip[plb_637711_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

The minimum hard disk spaces of webcams that have been around for more than two years range from 130MB to 1.6GB. With a minimum hard disk space of only 200 megabytes, the Logitech C250 has one of the smaller minimum hard disk spaces amongst low megapixel webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Minimum RAM

At only 256 megabytes, the Logitech C250 has a fairly small minimum RAM compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the C250. The average minimum RAM of webcams of this type and age is 380MB, and the minimum RAMs range from 32MB to 1.1GB.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams of this spec and age do not have a motion detector. The Logitech C250 is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the C250, the Logitech C250 does not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C250 is not mac compatibility, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the C250 are also not mac compatibility.

If you are looking for a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might want to look at the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams of this age and spec, the Logitech C250 does not have a zoom capability.

Other webcams which also have a zoom capability that you might also want to look at include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams that came out around the same time as the C250 do not have a night mode. The Logitech C250 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a night mode including the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price].

Not Full HD

Most similar spec webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C250 are not full HD. The Logitech C250 is no exception to this as it too is not full HD.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

If you would prefer a higher maximum frame rate then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps).
