5.0 out of 5 stars "OMGWTF!" - Don't think, ... buy!, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech C270 HD Webcam - Black (Personal Computers)
This has been my first impression:

"OMG, WTF?! How is this £17?! I feel like I've spent heaps on it!" and variations thereof. I'm utterly blown away.

I just showed my father a couple of recordings I made, and he was also blown away. I showed my brother, and he was pretty blown away, and it's pretty tough to impress him. xD

How the hell is a 60fps, widescreen, 720p camera, with an outstanding, noiseless microphone £17? I'm not complaining, at all, I'm just utterly baffled!

I'm so, so grateful that I've been able to buy this at £17, as, honestly, had I known how good it is, I'd have probably spent something like £30 on it. I actually initially ordered a Microsoft LifeCam, which was £33 at the time (now £36 or £38, I believe) but I cancelled it, as I found out something things about it that hugely put me off. I'm so glad I chose to be a sheep and buy what everyone says you should buy: a Logitech webcam!

I'll be sure to update this review, should I come across anything bad about it, but as of now, after some testing, it's absolutely amazing. Do note, however, that when I used RightLight (at 720p) the fps went down to what I suspect is 30fps, but without, it shot right up to 60fps, which in itself, is lovely to see on a webcam. I get no flicker at all from my monitor's light, courtesy of the 60Hz setting, not that it's a particularly new thing, but I still think it's pretty neat. :P

The build quality seems sound. I find it to be quite heavy, and sturdy. I've never seen nor held a webcam that felt so much like "quality". I really hope that my amazement will not be thwarted by some random break or fault. I'll try to hold back my pessimism.

I strongly recommend buying this webcam! Even if it breaks after a year or two, I'd gladly (OK, maybe not gladly, but I still would) buy another one, for this sort of quality.

I might upload a video as a demonstration, when I get the chance, because this, you have to see. However, you can just YouTube it, as I did, to see just how amazing it is. Also, the pictures don't do it justice. ;)

Thanks for reading.

14/04/2014 UPDATE:

Still going strong! Love it. Not a single problem, that I can recall. It's also pretty awesome to record my acoustic guitar, even with classical stuff; I usually need to turn off the anti-noise feature, though, but even without it, I usually hear no noise!
