Roundup: HD Webcams For Videoconferencing

PC World: Roundup – HD Webcams For Videoconferencing

Priced from $45 to $120, these webcams from Logitech, Microsoft, Genius, FreeTalk and FaceVision rate anywhere from 2.5 to 4.5 stars (the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 won the derby) from PC World reviewers. (With links to individual reviews.)

“Heavily pixelated videos with distorted colors were once notorious features of Webcam image capture. But as business videoconferencing has gained popularity–and as video chat clients like Skype and G-chat have become simpler–the need for higher-quality stand-alone Webcams has grown. The six high-definition Webcams we tested try to meet that need, with varying degrees of success. (See “Top-Rated High-Definition Webcams” for a ranked comparison chart of these devices.)

In appraising Webcam models from FaceVsion, Freetalk, Genius, Logitech, and Microsoft, we compared their video capture quality, adjustment settings, sound capture quality, and overall video-chatting performance with different chat clients.”
