Logitech C525 720P Webcam Review

7 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We checked 4,708 expert and user reviews for Logitech webcams and found that on average Logitech has excellent reviews. We also found that Logitech has excellent reviews specifically for its built-in microphone webcams.

Has a Motion Detector

The Logitech C525 has a motion detector, which is unusual. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for more than two years do not have a motion detector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other webcams with a motion detector currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech C615[plb_838859_price].

Fairly High Megapixel

The average megapixel of webcams of a similar type and age to the C525 is 3.2MP, and the megapixels range from 0.1MP to 20MP. With a megapixel of 8 megapixels, the Logitech C525 has one of the higher megapixels amongst built-in microphone webcams of this age.

Other 8MP webcams currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1479217_price].

Webcams with a higher megapixel that might be worth looking at include the A4Tech PK-950H[plb_2499372_price] (16MP).

Features Face Tracking

The Logitech C525 features face tracking, which is unusual. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C525 do not feature face tracking.

Other webcams which feature face tracking currently available that you might also want to look at include the C310[pl_265576_price], or the C910[pl_377024_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

USB Powered

The Logitech C525 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the C525 are not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The Logitech C525 has a zoom capability, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the C525 do not have a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Very Small Minimum Hard Disk Space

The smallest minimum hard disk space of webcams that have been around for around the same time as the C525 is 130MB, the biggest is 1.5GB, and the average minimum hard disk space is 350MB. At only 200 megabytes, the Logitech C525 has a fairly small minimum hard disk space compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as the C525.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not Mac Compatibility

The Logitech C525 is not mac compatibility. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the C525 are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the C910[pl_377024_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] both from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Logitech C525 does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this age and spec also do not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Logitech C525 is not full HD. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C525 are also not full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the C525, the Logitech C525 does not have a night mode.
