7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

Logitech is one of the best webcam manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Logitech also has excellent reviews for its medium megapixel webcams.

Has a Motion Detector

The Logitech C270 has a motion detector, unlike most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the C270 which do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

USB Powered

The Logitech C270 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the C270 are not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams of this type and age, the Logitech C270 has a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

USB Interface

This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is the most commonly found interface on similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

Across all the medium megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the C270 the minimum hard disk spaces range from 200MB to 1.5GB. The Logitech C270 has a fairly small minimum hard disk space (only 200 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the C270.

Chart Edit

1280x720@28fps Resolution At Capture Speed

The Logitech C270 has a better resolution at capture speed than most webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This Logitech webcam has a 1280x720@28fps resolution at capture speed, whereas most webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to it have a 1280×720@30fps resolution at capture speed. Comparable spec webcams that came out more than two years ago resolution at capture speeds range from 640x480@30fps (worst) to 1920x1080@30fps (best).

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other medium megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C270, the Logitech C270 does not feature face tracking.

There are a number of other webcams which also feature face tracking which you might also want to consider including the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price] which is also higher rated.

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other medium megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C270, the Logitech C270 is not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth looking at include the Genius FaceCam 321[plb_1787710_price], or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1350894_price].

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Logitech C270 does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C270 also do not have a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C270 does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other medium megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the C270 also do not have a snapshot button.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a snapshot button and we think the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price], or the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Logitech C270 is not full HD. Most of the other webcams of this age and spec are also not full HD.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

The Logitech C270 has a quite low maximum interpolated image resolution (only 3 megapixels) compared to most of the other medium megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the C270. Across all the medium megapixel webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C270 the maximum interpolated image resolutions range from 3MP to 20MP, and the average maximum interpolated image resolution is 7.7MP.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C270 does not have a night mode. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that were released more than two years ago also do not have a night mode.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a night mode which you might want to consider including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack[plb_1796403_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit
