The Logitech C270 HD Webcam is a great budget webcam that gets the job done. Although it doesn’t have all of bells and whistles of something like the Logitech HD Pro C920, the C270 excels in the simplicity and “bang for your buck” category. Out of the box, this webcam looks/sounds good enough for what I use it for (Skype, Google Hangout etc…). As an added bonus, if you ever wanted to change or tweak some settings, the software suite is incredibly user-friendly. Unlike other cams, another major upside for me is that I don’t really notice this cam during everyday PC use.
A large portion of webcam purchases these days are fuelled by the streaming industry (Twitch, Hitbox etc…). To probe this briefly, I tested the cam on Twitch. I didn’t notice anything too detrimental in terms of video quality (C270 output is 720p at 30 fps). However, I will mention that using an external mic with this webcam is must in terms of streaming.
It’s hard to find many flaws on a webcam as robust as this.
Verdict on the Logitech C270 HD Webcam
The Logitech C270 is a great budget webcam that offers 720p video in a compact and simple design.
