7 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Webcam Reviews

Based on 4,733 expert and user reviews, Logitech has excellent reviews for its webcams. Logitech also has excellent reviews specifically within its low megapixel webcams range.

Good Connectivity

One Logitech C300 owner mentioned in their reviews that it had messaging. Expert review site Techsmart.co.za mentioned “You can use the Logitech with any one of the plethora of instant messaging (IM) services that the C300 supports including Skype” in their Logitech C300 review.

Mac Compatibility

Unlike most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C300 which are not mac compatibility, the Logitech C300 is mac compatibility.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative mac compatibility webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price].

If you would prefer a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to look at the A4Tech PK-635[plb_1450888_price], or the LogiLink WC0020[plb_798362_price].

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C300, the Logitech C300 does not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C300 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of this age and spec also do not have a night mode.

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