3/19/13: Webcams are a great USB solution for using GoToMeeting, WebEX, or any other professional web-based video conferencing. Here is a brief comparison of four of the industry’s leading Web-Cams. My personal favorite, the Logitech HD Pro C920 has the best definition at 1080p and has built in H.264 compression allowing for low CPU usage. For the extra $10 you can’t go wrong with this nicely built camera although, both Logitech cams come with a warranty of only 2 years. It should also be noted they both have a Carl Zeiss lens.
The Creative Live HD includes auto-focus which the MS LifeCam doesn’t seem to have. The Creative Live HD web-cam also includes H.264 compression which is a amazing new technological improvement allowing for ultra low CPU usage.
The MS LifeCam is a great option for the price and keep in mind MicroSoft does have a sleek line of new Web-Cams to offer here as well.
