Logitech HD Webcam C310

Budget webcam for Mac users

Pros
  • Affordable price
  • Easy to use
  • 5-megapixel resolution for photos
Cons
  • Choppy video at higher resolutions
  • Slightly unstable on screen
  • Limited range of motion

The Logitech HD Webcam C310 is a well-reviewed affordable webcam, though lacking some of the features and tools found in other webcams. Its sound and video quality is very good, thanks to Logitech's RightLight 2 and RightSound technologies, and its 5-megapixel camera produces quality images. Reviewers, both professional and users, consistently agree that the C310 webcam offers solid performance for video chatting. They also agree that the webcam's mount is a little unstable and doesn't attach well to large monitors.

The HD Webcam C310 is in fifth place in TopTenReviews.com's 2011 webcam roundup, which offers a detailed comparison chart and sub-ratings. Justin Yu of CNET writes a thorough evaluation, awarding it 3.5 out of 5 stars, marking it lower than other webcams primarily for its lack of features. Between the Amazon.com reviews and those at BestBuy.com, more than 250 user contributors express support for this webcam, giving it a high overall score of 4.5 out of 5.
