What customers say about "Key Specs"
Logitech C270 Widescreen HD Webcam
  • Excellent webcam. Use it for code reviews, standups, etc. with remote developers. Resolution is very good; can present from a whiteboard with no problems. Like that a LED lights on the face when it is in use.
  • The video quality is a good but not great, clean 720p resolution but it does not track motion very well at all.
  • Webcam resolution is pretty good, I use it withy Skype and have no issues with its video or microhpone.
  • ng online exams with my college work, and it’s worth far more than the price shows. Still photos are really clear as well video, and the provided software is super easy to use and navigate.
  • Works great! Great photo quality. I actually purchased this to try at work since we have to take photos for the costumer files and I'm like big on photo quality.
  • It says that it can do 720p, but I've had a hard time getting it to use the full 720 resolution. It's not a problem for me, though, because I use it mostly as a face cam for YouTube.
  • Not exactly the resolution it says it has (quite a bit lower). It's incredibly grainy even with really good lighting and tends to have gapping and skipping from time to time.
  • The video quality itself is satisfactory. My main gripe is the colors. They often look extremely unflattering with artificial lighting.
Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 Webcam
  • There are multiple resolution settings for your to choose from, which is a great feature for those with slower internet speeds. Personally I keep mine at 640x360 and have had nothing but compliments from people.
  • Great picture, adjustable screen sizes and resolutions!!
  • The picture is crisp and clear -- even when it's in a lower resolution -- and the audio is excellent.
  • 720p HD resolution at 60Hz refresh rate. Very affordable quality video capture for the price
  • Is not high quality enough to be able to zoom at all. Prone to motion blur. Maybe your capture software can go widescreen, but I was not able to capture 1080x720 resolution with this camera in Open Broadcasting Software.
  • Wished for higher resolution but a solid webcam at a low price.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech C270 Widescreen HD Webcam
  • Microphone is also excellent. Plug and play with Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 64-bit Linux. No problems with Google Hangouts (also on Linux).
  • I bought this as my first webcam for streaming on twitch. It rests comfortably ontop of my monitor and has a reasonable zoom range
  • The mic performs well and does a good job of filtering out outside noise.
  • The software works okay, and has some cool features. The motion activated recording feature would be awesome for an affordable security camera.
  • The face tracking works great and the built in mic works well, I haven't had any complaints from people on the other end of s SKYPE conversation.
  • HD imaging very nice but minimal range of motion for positioning camera. Can only tilt the camera up and down so much wich limits picture views.
  • There is no driver, no CD and I have no idea how to get it to work. i plugged it in. It acted like it downloaded a driver. But there is no icon. I have searched my files I can find no way to access this.
  • The only thing is the cord isn't very long
Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 Webcam
  • Rubber feel, adjustable base allows you to put the camera on a monitor or a desk as a stand
  • Internal mic which has surprising good quality, better than an entry level GoPro's internal mic, which is about 80% more expensive than this camera
  • Does what it says. Easy set up, many different controls with the installed program! Easy to use! Moves left and right on it's base, also the base is adjustable to either sit on it's own, or hook up to your laptop!!
  • We use the camera for interviews and the picture is crystal clear. Like that we zoom in and out.
  • Tried to use this for a zoom meeting, microphone worked camera did not. could be user error, but I followed directions.
  • There is no adjustment to focus--seems a little fuzzy to viewers
