Review: Logitech Webcam C160

Logitech Webcam C160Couple of days ago I got my hands on Logitech Webcam C160, went through installation process and tested it with Skype video calls.

The package consists of webcam, installation CD (which includes drivers and Logitech webcam software) and printed user documentation.

Device itself is very light, with universal clip, which in my experience works great with pretty much anything.

After CD was inserted, installer came up, with easy to follow steps, and the whole process was finished in about 10 minutes.
And that was it really in terms of installation and config – we were able to use the camera in Skype straight away, without having to check / change even a single setting.

We tested the webcam by making several Skype video calls. With its 1.3MP camera the video quality was quite clear, and the sound quality was good as well. We were quite happy with the results, and the verdict is that it is quite a good camera in its price range.
