LOGITECH has been designing peripherals to help others enjoy a better experience since 1981. They started with the mouse and reinvented it several times over the years. They have since expanded into other devices like webcams. I will be looking at the C920 webcam from Logitech, which is labeled as one of the first webcams to support 1080p for video calling. Webcams can also be an important part of your gaming setup; even as much as a game controller nowadays. Live streaming has become extremely popular making a webcam a welcomed device for more than video chatting. Let’s see if this webcam can handle streaming video, audio, and the quality it claims.
