What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcamera
  • Great camera featuring very nice resolution. Very impressive images on receiving end. Received many complements
  • Resolution and wide area is great for webcam usage!
  • Was looking for a good resolution camera for home based job and needed great quality in resolution at good price, read reviews and picked up 2 of these, and they didn't disappoint
  • This is a great high resolution camera with panoramic lens, it picks up a wider angle so can easily be used in a group or conference setting.
  • The webcam records at 1080p, but at 10-20 FPS.... with the low frame rate and the lack of color, you could just go buy a 720 cam for significantly less.

What customers say about "Features"
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
Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcamera
  • The mounting gear that came with camera made it very easy to mount and adjust to the correct height and angle. It is a good camera for either personal or business use.
  • The auto-focus, wide angle and image clarity are first rate. (For advanced functions Logitech offers additional models and software at a higher price.)
  • This camera/mic is AWESOME! I love how incredibly easy set up is. After it's installed, the software is user friendly. The quality for the price is amazing!
  • The product was so easy to install (just plug it in to the USB port) and works great
  • It is adjustable so it can be placed on monitors of different thickness. It looks like it will expand to fit on a very old monitor that is several inches thick, but the problem I have is that the smallest adjustment is still too thick for my new ultra thin laptop.
  • The camera takes good video even in low lighting. But my issue us with the Mic and the software. For one, you have to download the software from Logitech's website. the software worked fine at first but now it doesn't want to record the audio.
