What customers say about "Key Specs"
Microsoft LifeCam Cinema Webcam - Black/Silver
  • The first thing you are going to look for on a webcam and the image quality. Well, the image quality is extremely good, it films in HD without any problem and the low light capability is truly excellent.
  • The image quality is great, up to 720p HD for video and 5mp for still images. It copes well with a range of lighting conditions and the audio is crisp and clear.
  • Very high quality picture, using it on Skype/Lync a doddle, being a Microsoft product it works seamlessly with their own platform, allowing zoom/pan/tilt and a whole host of picture enhancements.
  • Great for what I need it for, was expecting the quality to be a bit better but definitely worth the money
  • The video quality is pretty good from the little I've tested it.
Logitech C920 HD Pro USB 1080p Webcam
  • 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 Cinema Webcam - Black/Silver
  • The device is a circular tube of the dimensions of a bigger cotton reel. It feels to the touch well - made. When it is used the webcam can become warm to the touch.
  • Video and sound quality are both excellent and the accompanying software is a simple but nonetheless effective service.
  • Audio and video are of a decent quality - the only thing that let it down was the autofocus sometimes struggles when you move too close to the camera, but only for a matter of seconds.
  • Picture quality is very good and the microphone picks up sound clearly and without distortion.
  • Decent quality camera which works perfectly fine other than a really glitchy auto focus. Fortunately you can turn that off.
Logitech C920 HD Pro USB 1080p Webcam
  • 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.
