Webcam Reviews 2016

Updated on November 11, 2015

A good webcam really is the best way to communicate with people over a distance. Being able to see the other person is the next best thing to being face to face.

There are many webcams on the market and picking the right one can be tricky. In webcam reviews 2016 we have picked 4 very good webcams to review. We reviewed what we believe to be the best speaker webcam combo of 2016 (the Logitech HD Pro C9010), the best webcam for use with a laptop (the Logitech 2 MO Portable), the best selling general purpose webcam (Logitech HD C310) and then we looked at a lower cost webcam alternative (Microsoft LifeCam).
