Logitech C905 720p Webcam review: Logitech C905 720p Webcam

 

Logitech C905 720p Webcam

Superior image quality, especially in low light; 2.0-megapixel sensor provides higher resolution than your typical Webcam; included QuickCam software is polished and easy to use.

Poor design makes it a challenge to secure Webcam to a laptop; not optimized for use with Macs.

The Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks provides unmatched image quality, but its design could be improved. While the clear, bright video output will amaze, the constant readjusting of the camera atop your laptop will annoy.

Best HD webcam for laptops

 

Many new laptops come equipped with built-in webcams, but it's not yet a universal feature. According to reviewers, the Logitech Webcam C905 is the best webcam for laptop users, specifically because its mounting clip connects securely to any...

Lightweight, highly maneuverable mounting clip, excellent high-definition image quality, high-quality audio, user-friendly software

Logitech C905 720p Webcam review

 

We're not wild about the design of Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks, but its image quality is so vastly superior to that of other notebook Webcams that we're more than willing to make the occasional camera readjustment as needed. The thin clip and...

Excellent Quality with Shortcomings

 

Excellent video quality including color accuracy, auto focus, resolution, and low light sensitivity. A feature that will recognize your face and pan/zoom to it does actually work

Short cord, unstable stand, and clip that doesn't open wide enough to attach to monitor

To all of those that complain

 

The reason that usb cable is short is because its a laptop webcam, its perfect length and doesn't create mess. So stop complaining and get a desktop webcam which comes with much longer cable!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works as expected. Useful Software. Short USB

 

Recommended buy for the price. It seems to go on sale a lot, so catch it when it does. It is definitely good enough quality for average consumer use.

This camera was exactly what I needed for my daily photo project. Needed it quick and Newegg shipping was fantastic. Got it in half the time they said I would. Resolution is good enough. I know what I purchased so I can't really be upset. It would be...

Other reviews seem to take this con as reason enough to give this product one egg. It should be mentioned in the details that the USB attached to the camera is incredibly shot. If you were to have your tower under you desk there is little chance that...

worst mount imaginable

 

Why on earth is Logitech offering their own video conferencing software? Why not click through to video calling via Google, Skype, MSN, et alia? Are these delusions of grandeur? Or just an excuse to load us with more performance-robbing software?

Good lens, and the drivers worked well enough for my Win 7 64 Enterprise install

Mounting it on a desktop is difficult. The clip is too small for my LCD monitor, the stand is unstable, and the cord is ludicrously short. It's hard to understand the series of compromises that could have led to this product configuration

Wish I could review this...

 

I will try to figure out a way to get this to work. Maybe there is a USB extension cable available at a cheap enough price to make it worthwhile to keep the camera.

Immediate shipping from New Egg as usual!! They are the best

I can't rate this thing because the USB cable is only 26" long and it won't reach through my computer desk. I can't believe this. My last el cheapo cam came with a 5' cable

Logitech C905

 

Works Great, Installed Cd with extra programs with no trouble to Win 7 - 64 bit. Did update, it took a lot of the programs back off, said won't work with win 7. The picture was better after the update

Usb cable way to short, Must buy extender. Only way cable will work is if you have a usb outlet on your monitor
