The Bottom Line 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. The Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 Web camera offers excellent high-def video and sound quality at an affordable price. Despite using a good deal of system resources at higher resolutions, it's certainly an improvement over stock Webcams. We recommend it to anyone looking for a smoother video chat experience.
