    Great webcam!, June 3, 2011
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Logitech HD Webcam C270, 720p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording (Personal Computers)
    I had suspicions the quality would be poor and grainy, but I was very pleased once I got it plugged in and running.
    The quality is very good, and it has all kinds of neat features. You can set it to detect and record motion with or without the green light on for up to fifteen minutes. It has a follow face option which will track your motion to ensure the other person sees you even if you get up and move around, which can be set on and off. Right light ensures great quality even in darker rooms. My only complaint is that the adjustable tabs to keep it atop the screen are a little goofy. I struggle to keep it on top of my laptop screen sometimes, but that issue seems to common with all web cams.
    I suggest it to anyone looking for a great web cam at a good price.

    Great WebCam for a cheap price!, April 13, 2011
    This review is from: Logitech HD Webcam C270, 720p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording (Personal Computers)
    I bought this webcam after struggling for months on what model to purchase. Very pleasently surprised! Not only was this one of the cheaper models in cost, but it was super easy to install and worked excellently right out of the box. I used Skype on a high frame rate setting and it was all too easy and a great video call. Definitely the right camera for simple broadband video calls.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Logitech has a habit of making some very decent products for a reasonable price, and the C270 web camera is no exception.

    Out of the box, it is simple to set up. It installs easily with Windows. Please note you should check the Logitech website to ensure you have the latest version of the installation software. If your purchased box includes an older version, it will generally work, but like most software, the camera’s software gets updated on occasion. Older versions may not cleanly install on 64 bit versions of Windows, or may lack other features, like streamlined Facebook uploading. The software also performs YouTube connectivity. As of this writing the current version for Windows 7 is 2.30.2396.0. The quick install is under 7MB and the full installation consumes about 136MB of hard disk space. Neither large but keep it in mind if you are short on hard disk space!

    I also have used this on my Mac. It is advertised as being for Windows, but like most things, you should be able to use this on your Mac. The Windows limitation is more of a software issue, where the software Logitech provides is Windows-based. It has nothing to do with your Operating System recognizing the camera itself.
    Also, I installed the software to see what it was like, but for the primary purpose of doing video calls, you do not need the software. You can use Skype or any other type of generic video-chat product.

    Depending on how “smart” your TV is, it is also possible to use this on a TV with Skype, in combination with your laptop, etc.

    I use the web cam to do calls on a 50″ TV and it is crystal clear. Resolution on the webcam is 720P, your basic high definition. Resolution is 1280 x 720 for video. Video reproduction is fantastic, fluid, and clear. As with any device of this type, any break-up or choppiness is typically a result of your ISP connection or Skype connection, not the web cam. I have not had an issue either way. Still photos are produced as high as 3MP with software enhancement. Audio quality is excellent and I use it from about 12 feet from the camera when on the big screen TV.

    The camera is lightweight and only a few inches in size. It includes a built in clip/stand. The clip holds well on my 19″ Dell flat monitor as well as on my laptop screen (several different Lenovo models including an R400). The camera also clipped easily to my TV, a stand mounted 50″ Panasonic plasma. Depending on your particular monitor/laptop model, of course, your experience may vary. As a stand, the clip/stand is very stable and holds the camera securely.

    The camera cable is 5 feet long, long enough for most applications. Included with the camera are a user manual and the Logitech Vid HD software CD. The camera carries a 2 year warranty.

    I have a couple of other web cameras and although this one is not remarkably better than any other HD cam, I have no complaints about it at all. It is a full featured, wonderful HD web camera available for a very reasonable price.
