Product Review - Logitech Webcam C600
Through Amazon Vine, I recently received a review unit of the Logitech Webcam C600. Of all the webcams I've owned and used, this is probably the best of all of them. They don't work and perform much better than this.
As with most Logitech items, the install was painless. Put the CD in, plug in the camera when the prompt comes up, and you're pretty much done. There's an option to Logitech's video mail service, but I passed on that one as I have far too many other mail services already.
When I started the camera, I was impressed with both the video and sound quality. The video ranges from small standard def sizing to full-screen high-def video. And with their face-tracking feature, you can actually move around a bit in front of the camera and stay centered in the picture. The sound was even more of a surprise. I was able to get excellent recording quality with the cam sitting a normal distance from where I'd be sitting. I even had a fair amount of residual background noise, and it didn't distract or overrun the volume and quality of the playback. Very nice...
There were a couple of nice features in the actual hardware, also. The base features the fold-out stand that allows you to prop the camera up on a variety of video screens. But it also folds flat enough that you can set it on a desk without it falling over. The top part of the camera has a flip-down privacy cover, which is highly convenient. You just slide it down over the lens, and you are assured of complete privacy from inadvertent viewing.
I would highly recommend the Logitech Webcam C600 for anyone who was in the market for one. For the price and feature set, it's hard to beat.
