Logitech HD C310 720p Webcam Review

I’ve never really had a good quality webcam before, most of them were way too grainy and only supported tiny video resolutions. So when I saw the Logitech HD C310 720p webcam for only $46, I had to buy it.

Logitech has 2 different value-level 720p webcams; the HD C310 with 720p at 15 frames per second, with 5 megapixels for about $46 USD, and another one with 8 megapixels, 720p at 15 frames per second. They also have a 1080p webcam, but the framerate is so low that I knew I would not like it. So I went with the HD C310, just for the price.

The HD C310 is only 5 megapixels, so there’s a small amount of noticeable noise on the video produced by the HD C310, but it still has amazing quality, being 720p and 15 frames per second, especially for only $46 USD. The recording software allows you to record at smaller video sizes (both standard and widescreen) at higher framerates. The overall video quality is perfect for video chat, YouTube videos, Facebook photos, or just about anything!

The HD C310 webcam connects to your PC or Mac via USB 2.0, and has a perfect size cable so that it is sure to reach from your computer to your monitor. The webcam looks very sleek and nice on any monitor. The HD C310 has a clip set up on it so it will fit comfortably on top of your flat screen monitor or TV and allows you to adjust the angle without the risk of falling.

The Logitech Webcam Software that comes with the HD C310 is very nice as well, the software is quick and easy to install and automatically updates for you. The LWS allows you to capture video clips or photos or view the ones you’ve already taken. There are plenty of goofy effects for the videos or photos included as well. Logitech also provides you with their own video chat program, simply named Logitech HD. Unlike most software, there’s really no pressure into using Logitech’s chat program, and you can disable it easily.

Overall, the HD C310 is the perfect webcam for anyone looking to record HD webcam videos without burning a hole in their wallet. It has amazing quality, great software and support, and is just simple and easy to use. I’d definitely recommend anyone looking to upgrade their webcam to check into this one!
