Logitech C930e Business Webcam review: Precise but pricey

Logitech’s more expensive offering is capable, but doesn’t do enough to differentiate over cheaper rivals

The moment you start using a high-end Logitech webcam it becomes obvious what you’re paying for. This, as with the C925e, is a notable step up from the Aukey with an unmatched ability to capture details and naturalistic colours.

However, it isn’t such a leap to justify a price three times as high, so what else does the C930e have in its favour? Its main advantage is that it handles low light better than the Aukey, likewise if you’re sitting in front of a light source.

Another plus is a 90° field of view. This means more of your background can be viewed, which is useful when doing demonstrations, and thanks to a 4x digital zoom you can take control of what people see during calls. 

Logitech also supports its cameras with better software than any of its rivals, even if it’s spread over three apps: Logitech Camera Settings, Logitech Capture and Logi Tune. The division of labour makes some sense; for instance, if you want to switch to manual white balance or adjust colour intensity, the Settings app is your friend. Want effects such as a text overlay? Logitech Capture. And Logi Tune is there for “tuning” the webcam for Google Meet, Teams and Zoom.

What you don’t get is any of the AI found in the AVerMedia webcam, and note the C930e sits on a fixed base, so you can’t twist it like its rivals. Also note its snap-on rather than built-in privacy shutter. 

Still, it offers great image quality out of the box, fine adjustments through software, and one of the best dual mics in the business. The only reason it falls short of an award is the price – and the existence of the C925e.
