Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 Review

At A Glance

STEREOPHONIC

Outstanding video quality in all lighting conditions; stereo audio.

CATATONIC

Cant swivel left to right; heavy and bulky.

Outstanding video and stereo audio but bulky and inflexible

The C910 is much bigger and heavier than the other high-end cams in this roundup. It’s also less flexible; attached to your monitor or set on your table, it can swivel up and down, but not left and right. The sacrifice in flexibility, though, comes with outstanding performance. This camera can record at 1080p resolution, and in our tests, it produced the best video in all lighting conditions.

It’s the only cam in the roundup to offer stereo microphones, and so far Logitech’s free video-conferencing software, Vid HD, is the only one that supports this feature. If you’re willing to use that app or are looking for a cam to record videos to upload later, this is a very useful feature for adding audio depth to your videos.

We strongly recommend this cam if you need to record high-quality video and audio or do group videoconferencing, but we think a lighter, more flexible cam is better suited to desktop video calls.
