Logitech HD Webcam C510

At A Glance

CHATROULETTE

Delivers clear audio and video; small compact design.

RUSSIAN ROULETTE

No autofocus.

Offers excellent audio and video quality

The C510 is designed for portability; it folds up into a tight little package and even comes with a carrying case. It mounts easily on a monitor and can rotate all the way around, as well as move up and down. Logitech touts its RightSound technology, and the C510 did the best in our tests at reducing ambient noise. Video performance, too, was in the top tier for this class, delivering crisp, detailed video in all light conditions. It was the only cam in this roundup not to include autofocus, but frankly, we found autofocus to be as much of an annoyance as a help in many of the cams we tested.

The bundled software offers a clean, easy-to-use interface, making it an ideal choice for your less tech-savvy relatives, and even includes motion detection for simple monitoring of the area around your PC.

This light, well-designed cam is an ideal choice for one-to-one desktop video conferencing.
