Has a Built-In Microphone

The Logitech C905 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that are a similar age to the C905.

We compared all the other webcams with a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price], the Hama Digital Eye II PRO[plb_1805273_price], and the Konig CMP-WEBCAM15[plb_1343169_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution across all similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the C905.

8 Reasons Against

The Logitech C905 does not have a motion detector, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the C905 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Most comparable spec webcams that came out around the same time as the C905 are not USB powered. The Logitech C905 is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price], the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the Mediatech MT4030K[plb_1998655_price] which also has a higher rating.

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[plb_598566_price], the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price], or the Sweex WC350[plb_1842912_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price], or the Samsung VG-STC2000[plb_1514076_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that were launched around the same time as the C905, the Logitech C905 does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], or the PLCM21[pl_101453_price] both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Logitech C905 is not full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C905 are also not full HD.

If you are looking for a webcam that is full HD then you might want to consider the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Hama Digital Eye II PRO[plb_1805273_price], or the Sweex WC350[plb_1842912_price] which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C905

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C905 has a relatively standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Pyle PLCM19[plb_101449_price], the V7 Elite Webcam 2000[plb_683310_price], or the Logitech Pro9000 [plb_546300_price].

If you want a higher maximum frame rate then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
