Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent webcam for the price Was looking for a replacement for my Logitech Quickcam Pro which had given up the ghost - had it for almost a decade with no issues so happy to go with Logitech again. Popped into store and this seemed a very reasonably priced one. Had it for a month or so, no issues with it at all other than the mike having been a bit better on my old one. But it does not impact usability for Skype etc at all. Think the packaging said something about a CD which it didn't have - thank goodness, who wants a CD to use once and never again, gathering dust on the shelf. You can get any driver software on the web easily and this just plugged and played anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good webcam for the price The webcam feels solid and is, for what it is, well made. Picture quality is excellent but the microphone is a little insensitive, possibly not a bad thing as it will not pick up background noise. The included instructions state that the camera software is present on a CD included with the camera; this is not true. You will have to go to the Logitech site and download the software, a relatively simple operation. The software is generally good and reasonably intuitive to work your way around. For a bog standard webcam, if you don't want all the bells and whistles, this one is hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived very quickly, plugged it into my pc and it worked straight away without installing or using cd's. Quality of the picture is amazing!! So clear and sharp in any light settings. Clips on fine to the back of your monitor and is stable. I can't fault this webcam at all.. at the sale price it is an absolute bargain and is far better than any other webcams I have ever tried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money Received this item a couple of weeks ago, and have been very pleased with the ease of use and the quality of the image. However, I did feel that further thought might be given to the design of the 'clip', relying as it does on gravity rather than any spring.connector.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy bought this Logitech C270 720p HD Webcam for present which:- DID NOT COME WITH CD Very disappointed in this product & Maplins did say if any problems take back as there other one also NO CD DID NOT PLUG & PLAY as was told It said Drivers downloaded & ready to use? BUT: nothing was visible on PC anywhere & took ages to figure out after going onto Logitech website. Will be wary of buying Logitech in the future

Does it work through windows

Asked by: shroom
It's difficult to know exactly which windows you mean so I have supplied both answers. (Windows Operating System) *Operating System Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7 (Glass Windows) It would not work well looking through a window as it would see the reflected image on the glass.

Does this or any other Logitech webcam have an IP rating? I don't want to use outdoors, but proposed environment is demanding.

Asked by: Richie
On this occasion, Maplin does not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
