It did just as well as or better than the more expensive C922x and the Brio in these tests.
We used that data, our findings from the previous version of this guide, and notes from other professional reviewers to settle on our picks.
A good webcam for most people should meet all of these basic criteria, which we used as guidelines for our research: Five of the webcams we tested met or exceeded all of our requirements, and they were all from Logitech: the Brio, C922x, C920, C615, and C525.
We also evaluated the Logitech C270, which lacks autofocus but meets our other requirements and costs only .
We evaluated 19 current webcams for this update to the guide, including our previous picks, new webcams released since the last time we tested, and best-selling cameras from Amazon.
To narrow the field down to six contenders, we compared the specifications of each camera; test data from the previous version of our guide; Amazon reviews; and reviews from trusted third-party sources like PCWorld, PC Magazine, and Laptop Mag.
They did think that the C920’s audio sounded muffled compared with the other webcams we tested, but the camera’s noise-reduction feature works well and the sound is still perfectly fine for casual chats and virtual meetings.
