I'm familiar with the Logitech line; I already have a Logitech Pro 9000. Frankly, this C310 webcam gives fairly similar results at a much lesser price.
Highly recommend for those looking for an inexpensive but capable little webcam, especially those starting out.

* Excellent image quality
* Great microphone quality
* Software works great with it + nice features
* I find the LED light/position a lot more attractive than most other webcams.
x It is not truly "widescreen". The lens is unfortunately more "fisheye" than wide angle. Although you can indeed make the ratio 16:9, your camera will not cover a wide span. Basically expect no other coverage other than your head and behind.
x The cord is quite short (5 ft). This of course depends on the person's circumstance. My tower is quite far from my monitor, and it just barely reaches the USB port. Would it have hurt to make the cord at least 7'? Of course, some people have laptops or monitors with USB ports; so once again, it depends on your circumstances.
x It's a bit bulky. Expect it to stick out about an inch or two infront of your monitor. Not exactly "attractive", but not hideous either.
x I had an AWFUL hard time getting this thing out of it's box. Jeez Logitech, you have this thing packaged like it's Fort Knox. Simply be careful not to break it when trying to get it out.
So although I'm not completely satisfied, I do find the pros exceptional for keeping. With those cons being said, I fully appraise Logitech and recommend no other brand better for a webcam. However, please know that you DO get what you pay for.
Installation with Windows 7 was quick and flawless, just plugged it in and it was almost instantly usable in any program that supports webcams. Configuring the format of the image and the brightness/contrast/saturation is pretty easy through Logitech's software. The image quality is good, not spectacular. At higher resolutions particularly, the image can be fairly grainy, and you'll see the image break up if it's moved quickly at all, like you'd see in poorly compressed youtube video. But it's a webcam, not an action cam, so if you stick this on top of your monitor, you probably won't run into the breaking image quality.
Speaking of sticking it on top of your monitor, you might have more luck than I. The mount is fairly infuriating, and doesn't work on either of my monitors, but that may be a unique case. The range of movement is far too limited and isn't firm enough to clamp tightly. It -can- freestand on its base, but the base has hardly any weight to it so even bumping the table or the chord makes it shift or fall over, and one of the little rubber feet liberated itself from the base almost immediately upon use. The mounting base is the biggest drawback of using this webcam.
Otherwise, this is a pretty good camera for the money, though my personal favorite is the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema, which has superior image quality overall, and an extremely flexible base that can be mounted onto just about anything, currently for about the same price as this Logitech webcam[...]"}
Photobooth, Skype, Quicktime, and Gmail's Flash-based web chat all function perfectly well. Framerate is nice and smooth at VGA resolution, but stutters quite badly (5-10fps at best) at higher resolutions even with a Quad Core i7 CPU and 4GB of RAM with a moderate amount of lighting in Mac OS X; when I ran the camera in Windows 7, however, I had quite smooth (mid-to-upper 20s, not quite 30 I'd say) framerates at 720P in a moderately lit room.
It's a fixed focus camera and it only features a plastic lens, but the picture is decently sharp.
One important thing to note is that the base of this camera does not allow you to pan it left or right -- only up and down; that could be a deal-breaker for some potential buyers.
The USB cable is rather short, but at least the cable carries both audio and video, rather than some cheaper webcams that require a second 3.5mm cable for the microphone.
There is no physical shutter for the camera, but there is a mildly lit, large, green LED that indicates if the camera is on.
Overall it seems like a very nice webcam for $29.99.

I love this webcam. Plug and play at its best. Only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because it likes to interfere with my headset in Teamspeak.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is great for the price! The microphone works pretty well and so does the camera. My only complaint is that it takes a little working with to get the lighting right otherwise... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Adrian V.
Great low-cost web-cam! We use it to Skype family and friends as well as tutoring sessions for some of our kids. It works a ton better than the built-in camera on our Surface 3.Published 5 days ago by Marleebar
