What makes this streaming webcam unique is it has a stereo microphone. It also features full HD, and that’s 1080p. It also has autofocus so that it can do face tracking and all that for a budget price.
Our first impression is this: it has a nice weight to it, it feels very sturdy and well built also looks cool. The face of the webcam is all glass, so the lens is well protected from damage.
Built-In Dual Microphones
You also have the microphones on each side, and that’s going to give you stereo audio quality, and there’s a subtle little Logitech logo with the HD 1080p right there.
One the back is where the cable comes out, so that’s perfect for mounting it to a monitor or a laptop or anything like that, the mount opens up, and the lip is hooked on the front of the monitor.

The weight of the mounting hinge will firmly stick to your monitor or your laptop, and then you can adjust the angle of the webcam. It only goes up and down.
The surface of the mount is entirely rubber, that’s going to add some grip, there also some rubber on the bottom, which will add some grip to the back of the monitor as well.
You can also angle up the rubber grip on the back of the webcam to make it fit different, shapes and areas of a monitor or screen. It also has a standard tripod mount on the bottom so that you can put this on the top of a tripod.
Overall the webcam will fit well anywhere, and the cable is also 5 feet long, so you’re not going to have any problems getting this mounted and plugged into your computer.
The webcam cable is a standard USB, so that’s going to be compatible with Windows computers or Mac.
When we moved the C920 during streaming, it does a great job of actually picking that up; there’s no blurring or anything from the movement.
The autofocus on the C920 works very well. If we put our hand up to it, the autofocus quickly adapts and puts our hand into focus. As we move the camera, it will try to figure it out, and it’ll get focus pretty quickly.
Another thing we want to point out is the cool blue LED lights that are on the c920. The light is noticeable, so you know when your webcam is one while you’re streaming.
Overall we’re impressed with this product; we especially like the budget webcam price range. You get the full HD capability, along with the stereo microphone and it’s effortless to install to your computer.
It’s also compatible with Mac and Windows, so no compatibility problems with the two leading computer platforms.
The c920 does look a lot better with its full HD capabilities, and it also does a great job with movement and autofocus. So as you move your hands or get closer or farther away from the camera, it’s going to autofocus.
Another thing we liked is it’s straightforward to mount. It can also fit huge monitors, and it can be attached to a tripod, we think that adds a lot of versatility to it.
One area that we’re a little bit disappointed in was the stereo microphones; we thought that the quality could be a lot better.
Overall, the C920 is a reliable budget webcam for streaming. It provides high-quality features like 1080p HD for an affordable price.
