The Bottom Line Despite its uninspired software, the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 proves its worth with outstanding image quality, a funky and useful design, and low price. The Logitech C510 HD Webcam is an inexpensive solution for computers that don't come with built-in cameras. Its 2-megapixel sensor takes 8-megapixel snapshots, and 720p HD video performs well with video-chatting programs like Skype, Google Chat, and Windows Live Messenger. With a handful of extra features like one-click uploads to YouTube or Facebook and fun video effects, the Logitech HD Webcam C510 is a worthwhile buy. The Logitech HD Webcam C310 installs quickly and easily, works seamlessly with video chat programs like Skype, Yahoo Messenger, and Google Chat, and even takes high-quality 5-megapixel snapshots for less money than its competitors. If you're in the market for an aftermarket Webcam, the Logitech HD Webcam C310 is your best bet. Despite its uninspired software, the Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 proves its worth with outstanding image quality, a funky and useful design, and low price.
