Performance

1280 X 1024 Pixels 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. Across all webcams that have been around for more than two years the best video resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels and the worst is 640 x 480 pixels.

Average Megapixel

The Logitech C500 has a pretty standard megapixel (1.3 megapixels) compared to most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative 1.3MP webcams currently available that you might want to look at including the C110 (£15.55), or the C200 (£19.45) both from Logitech and both of which have better reviews; or the Gembird A4-GWJ-800 (£19.44) which is cheaper.

If this Logitech webcam megapixel is too low for you then you might want to look at the Sweex WC070 (£16.99) (2MP and cheaper), or the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack (£18.94) (5MP and cheaper).

Has a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C500 has a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams of this age and type also have a snapshot button.

Alternative webcams with a snapshot button currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper webcam such as the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack (£18.94) or you might consider a higher scoring webcam such as the Logitech C200 (£19.45).

We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the Trust Trino (£20.97) is also worth considering.

Design

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C500 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to this webcam.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think a cheaper webcam such as the Gembird A4-GWJ-800 (£19.44) or you might consider a better rated webcam such as the Logitech C200 (£19.45) are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Gear Head WC7500HD (£19.86).
