Logitech HD Webcam C270 Review

 

I've been busy today reviewing the Logitech Wireless T650 Touchpad which I'm going to buy when the price comes down.Now I bought the Logitech HD Webcam C270 and set about installing ...

I been looking for a new webcam ever since I moved to Windows 8 as my old webcam was not compatible, typical Microsoft! And had to use a 4yr old one that just worked and no more.But all is not lost as it means I can use it on my Linux PC. The Logitech...

Logitech C270 webcam

 

Those of us in our thirties, and older, will remember how much it used to cost to buy something that could make video. And of course, those same people remember how hard it was to handle, edit and share that video. Now, for less than £20 you can have a...

Cheap as chips, great microphone, decent detail in good light, a doddle to configure

Fixed focus, poor exposure control, slightly distracting noise in low light

For £20 this webcam is surely a bargain. In decent light, the quality is good on the whole, especially sound which was crisp and clear. Low light performance was a bit lackluster in terms of noise, but the brightness of the image was actually quite...

Logitech HD Webcam C270 review

 

Logitech's C270 webcam has a weighted base that makes it easy to sit it on your desk or perch it on a laptop or monitor. When you plug it in, it opens an update wizard automatically, which prompts you to install its software from the internet or the CD...

Logitech comes up trumps with an inexpensive webcam that has outstanding picture quality

Logitech C270 HD Webcam review

 

The Logitech C270 HD Webcam is a compact webcam that comes in a variety of funky coloured designs â€" the black and grey model we tested is the most sober-looking of the range.

Those seeking a value-for-money webcam that offers HD video capture will love the Logitech C270 HD Webcam. This model is solidly built, offers 720p video capture and proved capable of taking sharp still 3Mp photos.

Simple, functional and inexpensive.

 

I would buy this product again (and may actually do so for another computer), and I would recommend it to others.

Easy to set up. If works well (and even has a face-tracking feature). And it was reasonably priced ($18.98).

None.

Web Cam

 

I bought this about a week ago when it was on sale at my work and with my employee discount i paid around $18 for it and it is well worth it for the price. I've never had any issues with Logitech products in the past.

Low Cost Works well with video chat on skype.

Did not come with driver software as indicated on the sales page, but it works fine plug-and-play on Windows 10.

Plug-and-play with Ubuntu

 

Plug-and-play with Ubuntu 14.10. Works out of the box with Cheese and Skype ; Nice form factor - it sits unobtrusively on top of my monitor. This is really the only place that works for video chat, imo ; Good picture and sound quality

USB cable was a little short. Unless your computer is on your desktop you'll likely need a short extension
