6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Logitech is one of the top rated webcam manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Logitech also has excellent ratings for its low megapixel webcams.

USB Powered

The Logitech C500 is USB powered. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the C500 are not USB powered.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other USB powered webcams currently available including the MSI StarCam Clip which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C500 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the C500 also have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Logitech C500 is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution. The worst video resolution of all webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C500 is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C500 has a snapshot button. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been available for more than two years do not have a snapshot button.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Cable Length

Across all the webcams of this type and age the cable lengths range from 0.7m to 5.7m. At 1.8 meters, the Logitech C500 has a fairly long cable length compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Logitech C500 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C500 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Logitech C500 does not feature face tracking, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for more than two years also do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of other webcams which also feature face tracking which you might want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C500 is not mac compatibility, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the C500 are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the HP 2100 (£101.94) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the Logitech C500 does not have a zoom capability.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability that you might want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech C500 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the C500 also do not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90).

Not Full HD

The Logitech C500 is not full HD. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for a similar time to the C500 are also not full HD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C500

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Logitech C500 has a fairly typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that are a comparable age to the C500.

If this Logitech webcam maximum frame rate is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10 (£10.31) (60fps).
