Logitech Webcam C160
Advantages: cheap, no set up process
Disadvantages: not very good picture quality or microphone
I bought this camera like a lot of people to use on skype. At around £15 average price it's not going to be a top of the range camera, and it's not. But it does the job absolutly fine. It has a USB connection, VGA sensor and a 1.3mp camera capable of picking up 30 frames per second and a built in microphone. Just to warn you though it is only compatible with windows 7, vista and XP in case you do have 95 in which case what are you doing with your life?
The quality isn't poor but as i expected it's by no means good. My face can be seen clearly but if i am moving around too much the camera struggles to keep up and it will freeze, sometimes for a few seconds and once froze up all together. The sound quality is pretty awful to be honestn but not so bad that you cannot be understood. It doesn't have any installation proccess though. Its just plug in and go.
If your looking for a top of the range camera then look else where and spend more money but if, like me you just want a low budget camera that will do the job, this is for you. I have never tested any webcams of this in this price range before so i don't know what the competition is like but this cameras flaws can be ignored considering the price really.
Summary: a low price for a camera that does the job.
