Just a couple of steps behind our top-rated web cameras is the Logitech HD Webcam C310. This camera offers most of the features we look for, but it falls a little short in terms of still photo resolution and a couple other things.
This Logitech web camera can’t capture a full 360-degree view while sitting atop your computer monitor. It doesn’t offer audio effects either, or fold into a compact size. However, we like this model for the quality of its video and audio.
Logitech webcams like this one are equipped with Logitech RightLight 2 technology and Logitech RightSound technology. These built-in features enhance video chatting and video recording to provide the sharpest image and sound possible. We are very impressed with these features. We were able to walk around the room while video chatting and the built-in microphone would still pick up our voices as clear as day. We also tested the video chat in really low lighting, and the Logitech RightLight 2 technology still provided our contact with a clear picture of us and used the light from the computer screen to build contrast and pick up images.
Although photo resolution is not as high as other webcams, the C310 still captures a good quality image. The camera is designed to upload videos and images to Facebook and YouTube with a one-click process. Once you have an account set up for each of those sites, it is a fast and simple procedure.
The Logitech HD Webcam C310 is a universal USB web camera that has been designed to work with any computer that has a USB port. It is designed to work with a 1.1 port, but for better speed and quality, a USB 2.0 port is recommended. The clip on the back of the device will connect it to any desktop or laptop computer monitor. Like other Logitech products that we reviewed, it doesn’t fit as snugly atop the monitors as we had hoped, but it fits tightly enough that there is little unwanted movement.
Through our research and by using it firsthand, we found that Logitech HD Webcam C310 users find this webcam very easy to use and user friendly. Once the Logitech software is installed on your computer, you will find step-by-step registration prompts to help you get it ready to use.

Logitech provides a phone number and an email support link to put its web cam users in contact with a customer support representative. If you contact Logitech via email, you receive an automated response within moments confirming that they have received your submission. A response to your email should come within 48 hours.
We highly recommend the Logitech HD Webcam C310 to consumers in the market for an affordable HD web cam. This specific model comes without the extra bells and whistles that our top-rated web cameras provide; however, it still has a variety of features and tools for sharp images and sound, editing and easy upload.
